    Hey again guys.

    For some reason there was issues with the username I had chosen, so instead, my F@H alias is simply "roast".

    I'm getting roughly 300PPD with my E7200, anyone know how I could increase this a little more? I think I may have hit my max OC with the current cooler I have.

    Once I get a new PSU, I'll be folding with both my GTX285 and my trusty old 9800GT. May possibly put together my old mATX rig and buy a 9800GTX just to fold with too. :)

    The best option is to run F@H on the GPUs, and WCG on the CPUs. WCG is another distributed computing project that is working toward medical research goals. See the link in my signature for more information about WCG. With WCG, you should be able to get ~1000 PPD (BOINC) or 7K PPD (WCG) from just the CPU, and it doesn't interfere with F@H.

    Of course if anyone has an i7, they are welcome to run F@H for the -bigadv WU and collect their 22K PPD from the CPU alone.

    ok i get this old beater in a few days

    Geforce 7900GTX 512 MB/8800gts512
    2*250GB Baracuda 7200 rpm
    K9N SLI Platinium MS-7250
    AMD Athlon (TM) 64 X2 4200+
    Ram: 2*2GB Kingston DDR2 ( PC2-6400 )

    and instead of just selling it i thought it coul live the rest of its days as a cruncher?
    will it be sufficient enough?

    and what do i have 2 do to get it folding?

    need some help about it since i'm a total noob in this area.

    You could crunch the X2 and fold the GTS or fold both CPU/GPU. Look in the main section of this sub-forum for a sticky on how to get started. Let us know if you hit a wall along the way and we will clear a path for you:D

    See the guide in my sig for setting up WCG on the X2.

    As for F@H on the 8800GTS, it should give ~6k PPD OCed, there is a guide for setting up the GPU client here

    I have no issues with your link, especially if you are adding firepower to Techpowerup!;) We are all brothers folding for a common cause. Welcome aboard and let me know if you have any issues or need assistance of any kind.

    It would have been better to post this in the *** F@h Tech Assistance Thread *** , but I'll give it a shot. Maybe. What? You want more? Well, okay. Most of the experience around here is with Nvidia cards because they are so much faster at this. I don't know what your system will do with two generations of cards in at the same time. If it will allow the 4870 to be in there without affecting the 5850, then you can try setting up Folding on it. Look at the instructions for setting up Folding on 2 cards. You will have to (assuming you're using the console client) use the -gpu 1 switch to use the 4870 I think. Don't expect this to go smoothly. Ask questions as needed.

    Hi ppl :) I feel obliged to start folding every now and then so add me on the the list of names :D I've registed under Nick259 with the TPU number. I look forward to seeing my name at the bottom of the table :p

    system specs are listed under my name.

    How do I know what ppd i'm getting on my gtx260?

    I've decided to do some folding for the team. Got an 4870X2 @800MHz core, and set up following this thread: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=91569

    Will initially fold for a month, because I need to see how much it will cost me on electricity first, before I can commit long term.

    Is there a way to run without these command prompts open?

    TrayIt
    TrayIt allows you to minimize any window to the system tray, you can even set it so that the F@H windows get automatically minimized at startup

    I think the HD4850 gets ~2400, so I'd guess somewhere between 2,000 and 2,400
