    I'm thinking of upgrading my dual ASUS 8800GS to maybe a pair of GTS250 so I've been searching and trying to determine what I should try to get out of the 8800GS cards. Anyone have a ballpark figure?? I've been thinking I could get about $50 for each, they run all day long at 705/1782/1800 with the Glaciator heatsink (lapped).

    50 sounds right for each. They are the TOP 384mb cards right? I purchased an evga 8800gs for my sis.. nice sold card.

    2 GTS250's will give you a nice boost in speed.

    Wicked. My new Q9450, Intel DP45SG, and DDR3 1333 just arrived. Steal of a deal (thanks Summit!). The HDDs and cooler are coming soon after. And as soon as I find the video cards and PSU, I'll have this up and running. Depending on how my foray into VMWare turns out, I might need to pick up a 64bit OS as well, as all I have is some spare 32bit XPs.

    Very good point thebluebumblebee. Currently you can purchase xfx core edition 260/216 for 169.99 Free shipping @ newegg. Alot better choice for an extra 60 bucks. But newegg has 3 brands of GTS250's for 129.99 free shipping. Can't go wrong either way. Just remember the 250's are OC G92's.

    I picked up my GTS250's from ZZF for $124.99 each;), I didn't realize that the prices went up:eek:. I will also put my 8800GS up for sale once I get my GTX275 step up.

    I've had my eyes on the 216 core GTX260's but I've heard a lot of issues regarding heat (mainly VRM) and stability while folding. I would be volt modding any card I get so I figure I would easily be able to get the shaders over 2000 with a 9800GTX/GTS250 (maybe even 8800GTS 512MB). Another option would be to volt mod the pair I have right now even though ASUS decided not to use the standard PCB layout with these 8800GS. Oh and yeah, they are the TOP models.

    Man, GTX 260s are stupid in pricing right now. Retailers are selling them for 220-250 CAD, which is around normal for Canadians (exchange rate and about$20-30 dollar additional). However used prices are all only about $5-20 dollars less than the retailers. For instance the best I found so far was used $160 USD shipped, going for new $175 USD online (with Newegg free shipping). Guess the prices on them have recently tanked and people haven't quite adjusted seeming they paid in higher. It might be worth it to me to just go new on these.

    Is there anyway to enable the 2nd core on my 3870x2 to fold along with the 1st working core?

    And a double thanks to Buck, since I can't click twice! You've made me keep it up even though things got bad. Here's to my gtx280 getting back here soon!

    Thanks. Once your 280 comes back you will be well on your way to 2 million.

    I know the viewer takes a lot when you have it open, but I thought the systray was about the same as the console when kept minimized in the systray? I've been using the systray myself, kind of odd in a way I guess since I usually opted for console stuff previously.
