    We have great things happening this Fall/Winter for the F@H team, so I figure why not start it off by giving away the cards that started it all for me!

    I'm giving away 3-8800GS/9600GSO(single slot) 384mb(96 shaders) cards to eligible F@H members. These cards are capable of 4500+ PPD. All you have to do is pay me shipping(USPS priority approx $5-$10). This offer is extended to members within the Continental US only.

    To be eligible, you must meet the following criteria:

    • Must be a currently active folding team member(#50711) for at least a month and have accumulated a minimum of 100,000 F@H points.
    • You cannot currently be ranked in the Top 20 in daily PPD.
    • You must commit to continuously folding the card to the best of your ability.
    • Continental US only.

    These cards have treated me well and I expect members to take care of them. If for some reason you are no longer able to fold, please contact me so we may pass them onto another active member. If more than 3 members respond, I will use a random number generator to chose the winning members. Cards will be shipped within a week of notification that you have been chosen to receive a card.

    Good Luck!

    I stopped folding because my 4850 died. I could grab one of these and keep the rig going! Sweet! Too bad I won't be home till Thanksgiving to install it. (so count me out I guess)

    Where's BOW? He's been looking for a cheap single slot GPU. Since Aug. 25.

    Edit, just saw that he's #19 on the team. Maybe some of us can knock him down a notch or two:D.

    can i enter? i need a card for my main frame (24/7) it used to fold on the CPU but my vid card caps blew up now the machine is down since i dont have a replacement :/ it folded 24/7 365 when it was on though. the mainframe handles the entire home network (~23pc's) from print jobs drivers and file sharing it is also responsable for internet sharing my WCG PC's it runs the ethernethub they all connect too. other then that it idles and folds i even have it set to AC on after power failure. so if i lose juice as soon as its back the machine starts back up. shes a really dedicated box. I just need her to run again.

    I should be able to put one to use. I think I'll enter if it's not too late. How much power will this card want?
