    Have you ever heard the term"if ya got it, fold it"? Well that needs to be our creed. I need this team to the top 100 as soon as possible. We have some great plans for the future, but we have to be Top 100 in order to start the process. I have seen it work for other teams and it just adds to the fun. How about a monthly folding contest for new recruits with actual prizes? I also like the idea of Sub-teams within the team, competing and smack-talking back and forth to each other. Let me know if you have any ideas how we can improve the team and the TPU "experience".

    Thanks to everyone for their hard work. I love hearing talk of adding on more cards even as you guys are currently folding your nut'z off. Keep up the great work as we climb the F@H ladder.

    Quick question for whoever knows: What is the lowest level video card supported for this? Because I have X1600, a geforce 7600, and a 8600 (in my laptop) that are not being used (all are 256mb). Anyone know if these can fold? Because if not I'll just leave them on cpu and that's not a lot of folding lol

    For Nvidia only 8000 series and up and I think you can fold with any X1000 and up for ATi. Get that 8600 folding :)

    I thought ATi started folding with the X1000's. I'm almost sure of it! Not sure where to look tho :(

    The X1XXX series was supported by the GPU1 client, but that client is no more. No servers and no work to be had.

    Nvidia - 8000 series or higher

    ATI - x2000 series or higher.

    Folding is tough on Laptops. It's best left to desktops CPU's and GPU's. Just make sure ventilation is adequate. That Q6600 of yours is the beast at folding SMP. Good for 3000+ PPD. Let me know if you need help setting up SMP. Welcome to the Team!!!!

    Ok I want to set a goal for us. There is a team that I have had my eye on. They are called "The Longevity Meme". They are poised around #100 right now. They have similar PPD to us, but we have an upward increasing trend. I know they fold mostly CPU's. I want to run these guy's down and overtake them in the next couple of months. Nothin' like a little healthy competition:D. Anyone else got a short term goal for us?

    Rig #6 getting started...

    Hello my wonderful people F@H TPU! :toast:

    :rockout: My new baby is folding @ Full Throttle 3 GPU Clients. Working to get a 4th GPU stable... (Still have a spare HD 3870X2) :rockout:

    [​IMG]
    Rig #6: Pentium D 3.6Ghz - ATI HD 3870X2 - ATI HD 3850 - Mushkin's Enhanced Power 580W


    [​IMG]
    Rig #5 and #6 (top). My rig #5 has a little problem: Single Core CPU. I did try more than 2 GPU Clients but the CPU can't handle. Is a shame 'cos still has a PCI-E free (SLI board). Anyone with a Socket 939 dual core doing nothing???


    [​IMG]
    Fahmon with the new clients in. 35.8K PPD looking good!! :D :D

    I hope all the viewers get inspired to build new rigs too! :toast:

    Anyone using the display, don't! It will suck performance. Do use fahmon however, it will show the status of your job/jobs and the ppd ect. http://www.fahmon.net/download.html Sorry my production is a bit down, I haven't gamed in 2 months, and need a fix. Still at the beginning of fallout3!

    So I tried smp on the q6600 and I think I did something wrong because I'm only getting like 250 ppd :( I know I'm losing some performance because I'm also folding on the gpu but still. I'm also losing ppd on the 4850 (I'm getting ~2400ppd). So what would be the best way to fix this? I don't want to make the computer unusable (it is my gaming pc) but I do want to get the most folding done.

    Also, the 8600m is getting about 950 ppd right now. Would smping the t7700 in there hurt the performance a lot?
