ok...but could you run a rig like that,2 gaming ( crossfire ) and 2 folding?
as i understand it yes you can.
I never tried a quad slot PCI-e board. I don't really know how's gonna be the ATI Catalyst reaction for that.
My guess is no problems. Should work.
PS. At least for now, folding with 4 ATI cards is not that big deal. With two 88hundred you'll get better results. I'm saying that just in case you decide to buy ATI cards instead of nVidia for folding.
I use my maching for gaming and folding on the side. Thats really the reason I have sorta held back folding with 2 cards, I like the sli boost for gaming.
But If I could do both using a motherboard like that ( sli 2 cards for gaming and fold with 2 cards at the same times ) then I am going to get one.
Thanks mmaakk, I'm a little confised by the configuration. Is this something I need a BIOS config, Device Manager, ATiTool, ect? I assume this is how I can control 2 fanspeeds for my card.
Also, I'm reading overt the Duel GPU guide now. If this isn;t folding as well as it should, I may just send it back to the Egg, and trade for a 8600 or so. Either way, I got this primaraly as a PhysX card. But if the 8600 work puts out the right numbers, I'll see.
PS - I like the "Sir Atnevon". May be a new tag for something someday. Like a badass knight or something.
Hello Sir, again!
All you need to control fan speed is RivaTuner:
Very easy to use, and you can control multiple cards fan speed, OC'ing, etc...
New ATI Core - 1.18
News from the F@H Forum:
If you have an ATI card and want to upgrade the core:
1 - Close F@H app.
2 - Go to:
XP : C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Folding@Home-gpu
3 - Rename or delete "FahCore_11.exe" - Rename for backup.
4 - Restart F@H app.
The new core will be automatically downloaded to your PC.

9600 GSO 384mb back in stock @ Newegg for 49.00 after MIR w/free shipping
The venerable 9600 GSO Dual Slot is back in stock @ Newegg for $49.00 after rebate w/free shipping. Great deal on a 5200+ PPD card that only draws 80 watts overclocked. You know you have open PCI-E slots and most 400+ watt PSU's can handle 2X GS/GSO cards folding. C'mon Guy's , pick up one and fold the $%@# out of it for TPU!
I think im gonna join in the F@H fun, when my build is up n running at least.
I think my 8800gt's are better?
Yes you must come and join the fun
Can someone recommend me a good affordable AGP card for folding??
Let us know if you need any help setting up the client.
But the cost of the 8800GT is $110.00 with no rebate available. Therefore the 9600 GSO pwns the 8800GT @ PPD per dollar.
ATI HD3850 AGP in the most powerful AGP card you can use. Expect between 2-3K PPD depending on WU. Nvidia had no AGP cards capable of CUDA and therefore cannot fold.
So Buck are your system specs up to date? if not what are they
F@H no longer supports the GPU1 client(i.e. no servers or work units available). See below quote:
May 23rd, 2008
We are nearing the end for the GPU1 project. Our plan is to deactivate the GPU1 client on June 2, 2008.
Which rig(s) are you referring to? I've got 4 running in this room right now.
Thanks for the info. Buck.
I deleted the message.
How about the HD 2600XT? How much PPD would I get out of that? I saw one for sale £55 yesterday, that seemed quite expensive to me. and the 3850 AGP is selling for around that price on ebay.
I need to get all my machiens folding again. More dual core systems, and now a quad with a 4850 and soon two 4850's.
Please Steevo - Get back in action!!!
I think you very well know how to fold...
...after 2+ million points
As you can see, we are getting hot... hotter over here...
1+ MILLION POINTS PER WEEK
LET'S TRY 2M !!!!
Doing that now - plus just overclocked my card a bit more - see if i can break 2000ppd on just this 3850
Just about to pick up that 9600GSO, I just started folding again on my other one just like it.
Fold's in my name but it makes my card run so hot
