    I started folding with my rig at around 8:00PM on 10/11/09. So far, I have 8238 points as of 11:00AM 10/13 with my dedicated 9800GT F@H card (I use my tiny GeForce 210 to run my display and light gaming). I'm folding as Jstn7477 (with the rig in System Specs). I'm debating whether to use my CPU for WCG or F@H, but I will probably have to leave it alone because of my apartment's power constraints (they pay $105/month for power, split between my college roomate and I).

    Very nice! If you do decide to run something on the CPU, I would suggest WCG because F@H is more GPU-optimized and the only way to run WCG is on CPUs.

    If you check out my F@H user stats, I did around 53,000 points on a couple Athlon X2 (original 939) years ago. That took forever to do. It's great that we have higher performance clients these days. :)

    Yep, my Geforce 9300 does about 800ppd, which sucks unless you compare it to the standard single core client, which does no more than about 250ppd.

    DanishDevil reporting in with a Geforce 210! :roll:

    Hoping to get a hold of a much faster GPU soon.

    I have one of those GeForce 210 cards, they're so little and cute lol. I give the folding tasks to my much bigger 9800 GT, as it rips through those WUs like they're nothing. :)

    I needed a card from Fry's (only local place with video cards) to get my system running, and it was either this, a $100 Geforce 8400 GS, or a $180 GTX 260. I figured this would work well as a backup card in case something went wrong, and it could be a dedicated physx processor and folder.

    But I gotta tell ya, this card folds about as fast as a 2 year old doing her own laundry :roll:

    Is there somewhere that gives an estimated PPD? Because I just started running this 4 hours ago.

    Just joined up again after a WHILE of absence. So far I have my HD 4890 folding, and I did have the SMP client running on my PII 955 but upon restart is messed up...so that's for figuring out after work.

    I am now folding for both HWC and TPU under the username Bissa.
    once I grad from university, I will be setting up a few folding farms and putting more PPD towards the team with the lower score but I will keep folding for both.

    Yo guys I just joined the F@h team tonight. I will also be joining the WCG team once I make sure F@h is solid on my 5800s. I just found out my mom who is in her 40s (Im 21) has a turmor on her ovary. So once i heard about f@h and WCG I knew I wanted to contribute as much as I can.

    Glad to have you aboard! :toast: If you need any help with WCG (I don't know much about F@H), just PM me, pretty much everything you would ever need for WCG can be found in my WCG Essentials thread (see sig)
    Sorry to hear about your mom :(

    Shes doing good the bad thing is that she is also pregnant...yea i know....but they cant do anything about the tumor until she has the baby and since a womans hormones go crazy when they are pregnant the doctors said that that would increase the size of the tumor. So I guess we will just have to wait and see.

    Oh and thanks for the WCG link. I will be sure to pm you if i have any questions!

    Hang in there Anath. We all wish you and your Mom the very best in the coming days. The big C is not the certain death sentence it once was. Keep the faith.
