    Yes, and CPU usage is lower, like 2-3% instead of 100%.

    I have a gtx 260 coming next week Thursday. How much of a performance gain should I expect over my 3.5ghz quad?

    It depends on setup but here are the ranges
    3.5 GHZ quad = 2900 - 3600 PPD
    GTX 260 = 5100 - 8200 PPD

    Can you post your log from the Folding@home folder.There seems to be something up with your PPD.

    Are you getting EUE- early end to workunit - the units and points do not add up in your stats.
    Pic of your stats -

    [​IMG]

    You have 9 units and only 384 points ..that is not right :confused:

    EuE's and NANS! Yeah, you've only got 4 WU's done at that point. Sometimes removing fah and all the extra stuff (and reinstalling) will clean that up. I had problems with those for a while, seems intermittent.

    Blah, mine takes 100% running 2 4830's. It is very good at freeing up cpu/gpu when I need to use it though.

    I'd love to know if this is a XP/Vista thing or the difference between cards. I'm running an overclocked 3870 (800/1170) on an Asus A8R-MVP with a FX-60 (X2, 2.6GHz). The 3870 has 8 more ROPS and 256bit vs. 128bit memory for the 4670. It keeps one core at 23-48%. My 4830 (at 650/950), on the other hand, PEGS my 3700+. Don't wanna install Vista........

    Looking for an opinion. I want EVERYTHING when I buy something, so I'm looking for an efficient, quiet, but still fast folder. I've been looking at a 9800 GTX+, which should be faster, by itself, then everything else I have put together. So, here's my question: which would you pick? A 9800 GTX+ with a standard 9800 GTX spec cooler like this, or one with a G80 cooler like this?

    Get any fast card that can take an Accelero S2.

    I'm running my 4830's with no fans on em, load temp on the hotter one is 60c, the cool one is 48c

    Get the standard one. The shorter one with the single PCI-E power connector had some reports of being unstable, plus it didn't overclock as well as the original version.
