    Hey guys,
    I am going to start folding again next week so I may need some help getting set up. My specs are listed but I am getting a gxt 280 this week. I want to fold with all 4 cores of my cpu and the gpu. Like I said just going to need some help getting started if someone has some time I can pm them my cell number and walk me through getting the cpu going on all four cores I am a dumbass when it comes to setting it all up:banghead:.

    See ya next week.:toast:

    Welcome back! PM me and we can exchange info. We also have Teamviewer available and it allows me to access your computer once to set up the clients. You are in total control of the session. It's a great little application.

    I just want to vouch for teamviewer. It does work quite well, the target user has complete control of access, and no wierd quirks that other remote access programs have.

    Awesome, thanks for joining again! You should be able to get ~9-10k PPD from the GTX280, maybe 3000-3500 from SMP on the Q6600. If you can pick up a new PSU, you could run the 8800GT as well (I believe the issues with Geforce 200 cards and earlier cards in F@H has been resolved by now) for ~5k PPD (what I get from mine)

    My return is on hold for a short time. My power supply does not have the right connectors only 2-6pin and not enough juice to power my gtx 280:banghead:. As soon as I get a new one I will post and get set up.

    If you're in the market for a stable but very solid PSU I'd suggest getting the Silverstone Strider Plus 750W model. Very solid and stable Enhance platform that will stand the test of time for folding.

    If you have a Best Buy close to you they have Corsairs on sale. I think it was $114.00 for the 750w and $144 for the TX850. Good prices for cash and carry. :toast:

    What stores do you have available to you down there Bow? ANd what Online CHoices do you Have?

    Corsair HX750W are a good choice as well, they are a New CWT Design I have on in my Folding RIg # 2 and it is powering a 965 140W version, 3 1TB HDD BLack, 1 9800GX2 SSC Edition, 1 9800GT. So that would be more than enough.

    Again, the Silverstone STrider Plus is a good choice too. Or Antec's newest Lineup as well, as they are Seasonic Platforms and very solid.

    Folding requires unique Hardware to say the least, stuff that doesn't get a rest, and can withstand high sustained voltages.
    I use only the best out there, as the pretenders die fairly fast.

    Avoid OCZ's lineup, although their prices and such seem good, they are not. Their FSP/Epsilon Platforms are old and tired, and I've toasted 2 now.

    That HX unit will take everything and more.
