    meh, I don't buy hardware just to fold on it. I donate my rig's idle time, both the cpu smp client and gpu client (smp client is a recent addition just 10 minutes ago... had odd problems getting smp to work in xp x64). fahmon says I'm getting over 4200ppd which is fine. however that may be errored because I just added smp, who knows

    Wow, quite the phenomenon this F@H thing has become. People buying $100 cards simply to run a background program. Or is it really for the points (who am i kidding, I know who I'm talking to :laugh:). At any rate, it's a decent fad. Exercise, hybrids, now f@h, you really can't complain I suppose. I'll stick to SETI thank you very much (screw cancer, I wanna find ET). :p And my gts is strictly for games, although someone could buy it for $100 and fold away......:D

    Decent deal if your gonna buy multiple cards for folding. EVGA 8800GTS 512 Recertified for $104.99 and they have 53 cards left. You could buy a GTS250 for 25.00 more with slightly better performance. Of course, this is only a deal if your setting up a dedicated folding rig with multiple cards.

    I have been looking at that for days. Tis' a sweet deal and I love the stock clocks. I want it but cannot justify it with 20 other GPU's to look after.:eek:
