I have a i7 870 thats running at 3.2GHz. Will it be possible to fold bigadv within
the time to make bonuses if i ran it 24/7 with minimal web browsing usage?

EDIT: Also running a GPU3 client, how would that play out?

So you think it would actually work? Well then

Maybe a dual boot linux hmm.... I wonder what the PPD advantage is as im currently running SMP.

One last question. Should I stop folding on my GPU and use -smp 8 instead?

If you are using the 6850, I would just stop folding on it because you can probably get two or three bigadvs a week and one bigadv will produce more points then the 6850 will in a week.

You fold proteins for points. You also help cure diseases etc...
