    Those cards are solid choices especially when the 9800GTX+ price drops when GTX250 arrives.

    Darn, despite the fact I just lost a $500 video card that I can't replace, I feel guilty about not folding. I may move my 7600gs to my main rig, and put my 8800gs in the server to fold. I don't really care if it burns out. At half the poverty level, I can't stop, dam this is addictive..... Don't hold me on this please, but I'll probably do it.

    Agree with the addictive. I sit down and go 'I wanna game', looking at the 2 new games I just got and all the older ones I haven't finished yet. Then I look at the console clients, and they look back at me through teary eyes... and I walk away. I'm weak for their puppy dog eyes.

    Lord, all the gaming I was looking forward to on the 280... (weeps) and they just suck on this 9800gtx.... Pray I get a new 280 within 2 months, that's what I'm hoping for.
    Ok, the 8800gs is running, not going to be nice ppd like I used to do, but best I can do.

    Tried that flag sortof, but a different setting under console client, waiting to see what it does. Also, pretty kewl, I can game on my 9800gtx while my 8800gs folds, nice!
    Wow, 2.1k ppd on a 511point job, is that all these cards get? No wonder 8800gs cards are so cheap.

    Apparently if you attempt to open the f@h client when one is already running, the current WU gets corrupted and you have to start over :\

    Is there any way to get the GPU client to run at idle/low priority without having to do it manually? I did -config and set it to be that priority. However, it still starts at normal priority

    Using the "-advmethods" flag helps a lot! :rockout:

    After using the flag, 90% of my WUs are now 420 or 384pt :D:D:D

    Bizarre, my 8800gs is at 777/1782/1152, 2.1k... might be because the primary card is only a 9800gtx now, think it used to get almost 4k. Actually it's at 700/1700, but still...

    Oh that makes more sense now. I guess I shouldn't worry about it if it doesn't matter

    Those are nice clocks. Running solo, you can get a single cards clocks higher than with a pair or x4 in a Quad GPU rig. I can't get my shaders above 1745 on my Quad rigs.

    I have yet to get a 511pt WU with the -advmethods flag set.

    With the flag set, I went from a majority of 511pt - latest weeks were crazy, sometimes all my rigs were folding 511pt, 353 I was getting once in a while.

    Now the max 511pt I'm getting folding on my rigs at the same time is ONE :cool::eek::cool:

    The 420pt are majority and the 384pt are back :toast:

    -------------------------------------

    EDIT

    About SMP:

    Does everybody getting only 1760pt??

    Is happening with me for a couple of days already :confused:

    I am now averaging about 400 PPD with my three systems. Its ok, but you guys pump out that much in like 2 hours! I really want to get a low power system that folds just on NVIDIA cards.
