lemans81 With so many new people, I would say its time to bump this.

lemans81 Windows vista64, 4xgpu folding clients, then maybe run one instance of Vmware+Ubuntu.

SmasherBasher So let me ask some questions since I will for the first time be using a Quad core.
In case you have missed the Superfold project, I will lay out the specs here as well.
1) Intel Q6700
2) MSI P6-N Diamond
3) 3x9600GSO (96 SP)
4) 1x 9800GTX+ (128SP)
5) 8192 MB of memory

How should I set this beast up to fold like paper and what should I expect with it? I've been stuck on the dark side (AMD) since the end of the Pentium 2 days so IMO, I'm way behind. Someone want to fill me in?

Otherwise, I'll run few more days to get a completed week and then swap over and compare.

If you CPU doesn't support virtualization then your best point production would be to run the Linux SMP client inside of a Linux OS. If you can't run Linux then your only next option is WinSMP which is much slower like Gibson said.

gibsonnova74 When I was on the hunt for the fastest most productive way to fold in windows, I ran across VMware. At the time I was running Win SMP. My CPU was running at 3.2Ghz I believe, and was getting 12 minutes per %. When I ran VMware + Ubuntu, I couldn't believe my eyes, my times were now 9 minutes per %. VMware had shaved 3 minutes per % off my times.
