    Hello all! I just thought I might as well introduce myself, even though I don't fold here. (Sorry. :oops:) I fold on my i7 870 and GTX 770@1254/stock over at Folding@BeamNG.

    Figured I would test out the new hardware and see how it did for a day under load! Gotta wait for water cooling to continue this though

    That Ti don't need no water cooling! Once you get the right Work Units and get 10 WU's completed with your passkey, you'll see over 200,000 PPD with just your Ti! @T-Bob is Folding on one as well if you're looking for someone to exchange notes with.

    I know. I'm water cooling my CPU and mobo. The air cooler on this card looks too good to get rid of.

    We have a guide here to get you started: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/easy-setup-for-folding-home.200520/
    Those PII based CPU's will not get much work done. May I suggest that you look into running WCG on them (only 75% - you need to "give" the GPU a core)?
    I have no idea what your PPD will be with those cards. It's going to be fairly low.:oops: 7770's get about 30,000 PPD
    Also, you have to complete 10 work units before the bonus kicks in. Make sure to get and use the passkey.

    Ive also got a core 2 duo in a Shuttle with an old Nvidia 9500 gt i think with 3 gb ram
    I know its an old gpu but would that achieve more?
    From the charts i just read Nvidia seems a better choice for folding.

    Gonna check out WCG

    F@H is about equal between AMD and Nvidia these days. A person could even make the case that AMD is better because they put less of a load on the CPU.
    Basically, GTX 400 and newer, AMD 5000 and newer is recommended. I wouldn't use the 9500 GT.

    Thanks

    ive had a look at WCG and listed all my available components on the new members thread hopefully someone can help me put a suitable combination together so i can contribute.

    Is it possible to network home pcs (we have 6 i think) and utilize all of them or would each one need a separate account?
