Ok im about to buy a GTX 260 and ill want to fold on it but i dont wanna give up my 8600 GT just yet! it gives almost 1500 ppd so keeping it running would be nice! do i just need a dummy plug for the 8600? if so what is this dummy plug u speak of lol?

OP: If you do go with the 260, I seriously doubt that you will be able to fold on the 8600GT as well.

That makes me sad lol. its a good little card but i guess ill have to let it go. time for the ebay.
