GT 240 - Worth folding? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Umm, idk what that guy was thinking that told you folding on your cpu isn't worth it, it totally is. With my oc, I get around 12-15k on smp depending on which WU's you get.

Because you're talking about a 2500k, and he's talking about an Athlon X2?

Gotta pay attention mate. The OP is ony on a AMD Dual core. You are working with significantly more than that.

I had a amd x2 3ghz computer as a dedicated folding rig off and on over the past few months. The cpu is worth folding smp, but you do need to see how ppd is affected in all 3 folding situations: Gpu only, gpu + cpu, & cpu only. Xp vs vista vs win7 makes a difference too. I don't remember my results but they weren't consistent across the various athlons i have at work.

Heck yeah you can ask here! folding is an addiction with a fantastic excuse. Your computer takes part in a distributed network helping scientific medical research. Check the sticky at the top of this forum. ... There's a great link in one of the faqs "why do we fold"

what will really hook you is watching the points per day stats. Once you start clicking that, you're done in.

welcome to the fold...
