Those cards are solid choices especially when the 9800GTX+ price drops when GTX250 arrives.
hope by that time i have a job and money
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.
is there anyway to stop from getting 511pt WU? There hell on my poor 8800GT
now folding both SMP and GPU for us again. I've been doing the stephanie thing over at bjorn3d for the past month
No, the 511s never stop.....
for all of you that want to stop or atleast cut back on the 511pt WUs take a look what google brought up
i am using it and my GPU runs 10c cooler and puts out better PPD then 511pt
read what i posted i found something
Oh wow my gtx has made a huge difference in my point values
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 :\
Bizarre, never tried that, I'll remember not to! Sorry...
i have had that happen before but it was when i was trying to run the console and tray client at the same time with the same Machine ID
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
task manager.. also are you looking at the fahcore_xx.exe or the Folding@home-xxxx.exe? the core is the one you have to worry about
my 8800gs get 3.1k on 511pt clock @720/1782/800
thats not bad. I got 3.5-4.3k on 511pt with my 8800GT (or 9800GT) don't remember clocks but i think there where almost the same as your GS if i remember it was 700/1870/900
Using the "-advmethods" flag helps a lot!
After using the flag, 90% of my WUs are now 420 or 384pt
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...
Sweet Core 14 & 420pt WU
My vid-cards are cooler than ever
About the CPU utilization with the core 14, not really happening with me. All good.
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
The 420pt are majority and the 384pt are back
Does everybody getting only 1760pt??
Is happening with me for a couple of days already
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.
