    Just answered the call for TPU crunchers to help the f@h team. Switched both 9800GX2 cards in my system specs over to the team; just finished my first WU.

    Probably enough to make you ~15th in PPD daily. Pretty nice for one card.



    Dhoshaw, I added you to the Current Status of F@H Teammates.

    I has a question:

    Would an 8800 GTX fold better than a 9600GT 2gb?

    I think it'd get more PPD, but it'd use ALOT more power... really worth it?

    Correct Moonpig. The 8800GTX is G80(90nm) and creates alot of heat. If you have the card, fold it. I would not buy the card to fold, as your money can be spent better elsewhere.

    Hi everyone, I was waiting to have everything set up before I made my introduction.

    I'm currently running 2x notfred vmware images on my Q9550 and 2x gpu clients tray clients on my 4670s for a total of ~7k ppd. The great thing is, the system is still silent :D

    I guess I should say Hi and tell you that I used to fold alot under variouse names years ago.. I gave it up cause my systems just couldn,t keep up anymore. But I,ve built a new rig and will contribute again Btw my fahmon is telling me 9300 ppd on a overclocked gtx 275 going at 720 mhz I don,t know about the cpu yet only have 1 client running right now and just increased my clocks to 4.2ghz but temps are great so I'll add another client very soon.. I cannnt sleep so thought I,d come in say Hi and raise blck to 200 x 21 and to a stress test :laugh:

    Looks good, but I would drop that core down to about the 620 to 650 range and raise your shaders to 1620 to start with. Good luck with your folding.:toast:

    Seeing as I've been around here for a bit and folded a tad on and off, I thought it might be best to say hi on this thread. I used to fold while I was away from my pc for classes, but I started to slow down when the summer heat started. Though I've started up again, and I've also just bought a GTX 275, so I will be sure to put that thing to work while I'm away in class. :p

    My old card (an 8800gt) will be put to work and won't have a break. I have an old P4 which has been turned into a file/print server running on my LAN, so I can just stick it in there and make it do WUs 24/7. :D
