Complete Folding N00B Nurse

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
As a nurse, folding is something that i see an infinite value in. I would really like to get involved. I have read the guides and its all pretty straight forward but I'm still not really sure how to utilize both my CPU and GPUs to their full extent.
Do i just download a separate client for the CPU and then one for each GPU? (they are in SLI)...Three clients running at the same time?
It seems that my rig would be excellent for folding, so i really want to be sure and maximize its potential.

Thanks for any advice!!!

You need to install the CPU client and two GPU clients, yes. You need a client per piece of hardware. There are some good guides in the folding@home essentials thread (stickied in this forum). Welcome to team 37726!

Oh, and your rig would be epic for folding. If you get your 930 OC'd to around 4ghz, you'll be able to rock something like 50-60k ppd (points per day), which is a lot for one rig! Your rig will get pretty hot though.
