Folding is confusing

230 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  StarryNite
So I finally decided to start folding but it's too confusing.

I'm not sure if I should run SMP or GPU2. My friend says GPU2 but some other people are saying SMP.

I can keep my rig running 24/7 but I game a lot during the day (3 pm to midnight)

Secondly, how do I get SMP or GPU2 to work, there are like 10 .exes

Thirdly, how do I get the postbit for folding on OCN

Even at 100% folding with the GPU, at least with the HD4870, I can still browse around online and all. No interference.

So those hanging around OCN, donate your GPU cycles. You can post and grind at once.

The good thing is GPU grinding leaves your procs available to do other things -- listening to music, etc..
