    Well i can tell you right now the 8800GT will get you more PPD then any of the ATI cards that you have.
    The 3870s and 4850s both will fold and i would get them folding ASAP along with the CPUs running SMP client. between all of them i would think that ~20kPPD maybe possible

    what is your CPU speed on all of them?

    Poor guy gets a flood of comments. I've said before, we seem to froth at the mouth to help. But on the other hand looks like we just gained ourselves a very prominent folder. Again, welcome!

    Each one should earn you between 1000-1400 PPD with an SMP client, as that's around where my e8500 gets me. 7 x 1200 avg = 8400 PPD CPU clients alone.

    As a further note, and because I like throwing around numbers, if POS is right and you get 20k ish from the cards, you'd be looking at 28k PPD (ish) and that would place you at #3 for our top contributors. (Assuming you ran them 24/7, but that eats electricity).

    Thanks for the welcome. Got it loaded on the 880 gt comp but has been looking now loading for well over an hour. Does it take that long to get a folder and start working?

    If by loading you mean every few minutes it increments in a percentage, that means its folding and working. The fastest work units (for my 9800 GTX) will get done in around 1.5 hours. So you'd be looking at 1.75 - 2 hours.

    We are not biased towards any brand, ATI, Nvidia, AMD, & Intel. That being said, Nvidia has had the upper hand for a while. ATI and Mike Houston are working to optimize the core to utilize the extra shaders that ATI has with the 48xx series. They have made progress and more is on the way. We appreciate all our ATI folders, as they make up a large portion of our combined PPD The great thing about F@H is that you have options to fold most of your hardware, whatever type you have. Everyone can contribute towards the science that will one day help cure disease.

    Yes, Intel folds better than AMD. Sometimes 2-3 times better.

    Sorry guys, looks like I was right about my 280, having problems. Either have to try new thermal pads once I can find where to get them, or have to rma the card. I'll try to fix it as soon as possible. If rma, then I'll need the 9800gtx for my main rig. Fold On!
    Edit: I just want you guys to know what I gave up to fold, I'm on permanent disability. I could never afford another gtx type card as long as I live. I just lost my 280. I have to pray that ncix takes it back.... Hope you all say a little prayer for me! Plus I have to deal with my computer guy that I still owe 177 bucks to for a stupid 8800gs that I can't even fold with right now! This folding thing has really cost me.... Sorry for the rant, I'll do my best.
    Edit2: I just can't afford it. Good luck guys, my heart will be with you. I'm out a bunch of money, and will be down for a while.

    Write a little script to auto-start em about an hour after everyone leaves :D

    Might have to change a couple things. Boot on LAN works nice.

    I got another noob question. One comp says its gpu and the other says cpu. Only got 2 on it will get the others up prolly tomorrow after the kids leave. Seems the 8800 is flying and the 4850 going slower but was gaming as it folded.

    Get something better than an E1200, they're really not good CPUs. Even if you can find something like an E6400 and OC it, you'll get much better PPD due to much larger cache (2MB on an E6400 compared to 512kb on E1200 for example) and higher FSB (faster RAM access).

    I just realized, I can't even play my red baron 3d match this weekend, no video card anymore. People on disability should not be allowed to fold! TV for me!

    Sorry to hear that. You pushed the 280 too hard shooting for that other 280. You know, we only had you back folding for 5 days. I hope you get it fixed and are back folding with us sometime soon.

    yea can't really get anything with the money that i have now.( which isn't much at this time) :laugh:
    i am really pleased with how my 9800GT folds i am thinking of getting a few of them when i get the money... thinking a board with 4 PCI-E and using the 2nd slot in my board that i am using now and 1 for the 5kBE rig
    think of the PPD that 7 8800GT/9800gt(what ever they are) all overclocked would get when mine gets around 4.5-6k(depending on WU and clocks) i lower my clock speed from time to time to give the card alittle bit of a rest without stopping. may cut my PPD down alot but its worth it if it stops my card from frying its self

    also thinking about 9800GTX+ those would kick some ass
