    I beg to differ. My "chesty" ex-wife felt that her "DD" implants were not enough and sought an "upgrade":laugh:. Funny, but not a joke.

    im aiming to break into top 100 of tpu folders in the next 2-3 days.

    if i can get the 4th gpu folding i'll be set for some mad folding and should be well into the top 100 or even top 50 by the end of the week(hopefully)

    this is kinda fun in an odd way.

    My SMP client suddenly stopped working after I updated my Windows, it wouldn't let me use the install.bat file, kept saying the "target machine refused...."

    So the SMP client is only for multi core. Too bad I only have single core processors.

    Folding is the right mix of friendly competition with the end goal of medical research that can ultimately save lives. We all have spare CPU/GPU cycles that can be spared for the cause. And most of us are overclockers that try to squeeze every last bit out of our HW. Folding is another way to measure the success of that tweaking.

    All around... win win.

    There is a standard Single Core client. It is actually very similar to the SMP client, just easier to setup as it doesn't have all the extra stuff to support multiple cores.

    I used to say "Folding is like a Cancer Walk, except for geeks who don't like to go outside.":laugh:

    It is a win overall, but one person brought up in another thread, "what about all the electricity you spend, that is killing the planet!"

    I would still fold. The electricity I spend on folding is well worth it if it ever does cure something.

    That is like saying the Pharmaceutical plant that makes the medicine that saves lives should shut down because they use too much electricity for their mixers. :confused:

    It is more about what we spend our electricity on and how we load level that across the 24 hours in the day. Power generation plants can't store electricity so they have to design for peak loads in the middle of the day. In some places those peaks are subsidized by coal fired plants that come on line when needed. If we can find ways to reduce our energy use and also spread energy usage across the 24 hour period then we are doing more to help the planet.

    Sorry, a little (OK maybe a lot) off topic but I just don't agree with the logic.

    I'm counting on you to make up for my outdated Pentium 4 folding rigs!

    Also: If I were to buy a 8 series or 4xxx series AGP card, would that be able to run the GPU client?

    Well that problem is up to the electricity providers to solve. We need green energy, and if I don't use it to Fold, someone else will just waste it.

    8 and 4 series AGP cards exist? Since when? :confused:

    I'm considering running the SMP client, since my PC is only on when I'm at home (and can't run through the night), so getting a WU done faster rather than 2 done slower would be better for me.
