    We have F@H that takes the GPU power from those that are willing to participate the crunching/folding life.

    Doesn't mean you have to close your eyes to other DC possibilities :)

    Agreed, but you are making an assumption on which project will make a breakthrough.
    The more angles a problem is approached from the better it seems to me.

    Sorry if I sould like devil's advocate, I am just making a point and if the poster wants to create a team for any given project I see no reason to discourage it.

    The main thing is to crunch :toast:
     
    Solaris17 says thanks.

    For what it's worth I did give Stanford a good few years of cpu time in the past :)
    So I have been in the game a while ;)

    IIRC, when folding I had an nforce 2 mobile athlon rig, nforce 2 xp2500 rig and an X2 I think.
    My folding stopped when my 1900xt died :banghead:

    Moved on to Boinc protein folding and various other projects that had lesser support than Stan and WCG.

    Never run GPUGrid myself yet as I don't have any gpu's for dc work, mostly IGP's.

    Addendum: Lol, my folding stats still have me in the top 20-000 :laugh:

    GPU's have completely skewed the stats system in all projects....but who cares, gets the science done quicker. :toast:

    Will see if I can dedicate a GPU for this cause but not right this moment as we have to contain some Canucks:rolleyes::D
