    sorry, only for other boinc projects... wcg sadly doesnt use the GPU plugin till now, tho its capable to use it theoretically. just a matter of time,i believe, until its fully implemented;)

    Anytime dude :toast:

    Thanks Trigger.

    You need this for your GPU. This is different than WCG though, points go towards GPU grid and not WCG.

    I have a gts 250 available in my FS thread if anyone is looking for something like that for folding :)

    I'll drop the price a touch if you mention it's for folding :)

    Edit: Nevermind. I no longer have it as it is on its way to Trigger911 :) yay for crunching for goodies!
