    Guess what Buck Is cooking up...

    Just got the rest of the parts for my last quad GPU rig. Got the X2 7750 pumping the blood in this one. Using 2x 8800GTS G80 and 2x 9600GSO and hopefully they will play nice together. If anyone is planning on the 8800GTS G80 for folding, don't. They are power hogs due to the 90nm process and produce twice the heat of the 9600GSO's. I should have picked up different cards, but they are here and paid for:ohwell:. This will be my most power hungry rig to date. I'll let you know the wattage later tonite.

    I have been thinking about folding for a while, and I was wondering of how much of a network,cpu, and gpu strain does it put on?

    I'm running 700/1100 on a 4850 with a flush interval value of 1024 (which having at around 512 and up should produce the same results)

    384pt - 2700 ppd
    388pt - 2800 ppd
    511pt - 2400 ppd
    548pt - 3950 ppd

    I have been having problems with SMP lately also. Yesterday I had to completely delete the client and re-install. Work files were all screwed up.

    They also usually don't overclock as high as the 9600GSO's either.

    It don't stress your network too much,is downloading a job every 2-3-4 hour and it around 10mb i think.

    Sorry about the wait Castiel. :ohwell:

    Network = Very close to zero. The download and upload of WU (Work Units) is a matter of Kb.

    CPU = Positive. The CPU client will stress your CPU while folding. It depends how many cores your rig has, you can setup affinity for a specific core.

    GPU = While working in 2D, your GPU will be working hard with the GPU client. If you are gaming or using 3D apps, the client will slow down.

    Anyone know why my quad core only uses 25% of each core?

    Are you using a smp client? If you use a regular client you'll get around 25% over each core. Check to see if thats the problem.

    stanhemi, I'm not very into industry level video cards.

    What I understand, this ATI FireStream is the new generation of the FireGL model.

    This cards are optimized for CAD operations.

    So far, they are not compatible with folding@home.

    Great deal Beertintedgoggles. :toast:

    Unfortunately, @ newegg.ca the same card costs $140.00. :eek:

    Yeah, folding over here is more expensive. :cry:

    I do not believe you can run on-board graphics and a dedicated GPU on the same board.
