this is a poll! please answer it honestly, not just becuase you want more folding points! I might not even fold for OCN! (probably will
)

anyways.

See my Log (Project Bruiser, not the atari one
) and tell me whether it is too awesome to sell or not. Also give me a valuation estimate (i.e, if you had the cash, how much?)

My folding farm would be way OTT
with A P6T6 WS Revolution and 5 9800GX2's and a card for gaming . yes six cards!
and dual 1000w PSU's. or failing that, just as many as will fit +1 for gaming.
It would fold 24/7 OFC.

thanks In advance.

If you keep your rig would you adapt it for folding? If so trade your gpu for some nvidia cards and save your beautiful case

If you're serious about folding, why not switch up the 4870 X2 for a couple of 9800 GX2's?

thanks guys.
Reason I didnt wanna simply adapt is becuase
A) Expensive to change mobo, processor (AMD K9A2 Board) waterblocks, and graphics cards all in one go. I'd prefer to start over
B) I like starting from scrach
C) I might make profit on it


vote sounds like a resounding NO! already though......

thought about that. would PCI-E 2 x8 slots hinder folding or gaming on these cards? also my mobo isnt SLI, but I can still run two cards right? just not in SLI?

That's correct. You don't need to have the cards in SLI in order to fold.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the first PCIe slot will run in 16x while the second will run at 8x, since SLI won't be enabled. That's how it is with 790GX boards at least.

Don't do it man. That thing is just too custom, too beautiful, to just get rid of. No matter what.

thankyou guys for your opinions. It's a tough decision.
On one hand, i put a lot of effort and money and thought into it.
On the other, I like starting new projects, and the folding would help them a lot.

I will nap on it


EDIT: does folding help alzheimers?
