I've started folding just now. I've got it on all my computers in my house so I dunno how much i can help but we'll see. does this folding help find cures for cancers or just protein based diseases??

Grats!

Actually cancers I believe are protein based. The whole "folding" concept is they simulate proteins that "fold" atop themselves thus causing mutations and thus deformed cells which turn into unfortunately many things.

Lots of GREAT reading at the [email protected] Stanford site about the project and it's methodology!

A dent, regardless of size, is a dent no?


I sure wouldn't be happy about any in my vehicle so big or small ANY contribution helps to the team and we welcome you with arms. It's addicting here for folding and don't let the folding fanactics ruin your day!


Fold on!

I dont think the X1650 supports Physics, so I dont think you can fold on it.

Yep. Get the HD4870, their price is falling by the week. Newegg had a 1GB version on sale for cheaper than $160 the other day. Shop around, as their price is diving.

Important thing to remember with all the PPD talk, GPU WUs still produce more points than CPU WUs.
