As I have seen, I need to make many folder adjustments etc with -gpu0, -gpu1 etc

1. Would I need to use Dummy plugs with Windows XP?
2. I will have a duel-core, 4x 8800GS's, Will an Antec Earth 500 watts suffice?
3. Between Vista and Xp, is there any difference in PPD at all? I know kinda weird question since its based off the GPU's.
4. Could I install all the GPU's at once, install the drivers, or do I need to install one card, one by one?
5. Is most of the PPD produced by the Shader clock on the Nvidia cards and memory/core clocking are not much affected by PPD?

1. From what I've read, Dummy plugs are not needed with XP.
2. What psu specifically?
3. Not sure.
4. Not sure.
5. Shader clock and core clock affect the PPD. I don't believe memory clock plays a role in folding.

IIRC
1. I prefer the dummy plug as you are not trying to trick either OS into thinking something is there.
2. As stated need to know the wattage
3. Same PPD
4. Install all at once then load drivers
5. Shader, then memory, then core affects PPD in that order with Shader being the main one.

BTW cannot wait to see your results!!!

Yepper, Shader makes the largest differnece and I mean by far. Memory is second and the core is not much.
