quick question i am ready to start folding but before i do would i need fast internet?
No not at all, you only need your internet to upload / download work units so any connection will do.
Also welcome to the team
is there a banner or something a can put in my sig?
and is the high performance client the better choice for me?
Yes you can grab the pic in my sig and use it if you like
Download the GPU Console 6.23 client to use with your card, it seems to be the best client.
I see you have a 4870x2, you can run two instances of the client with this card I think.
Maybe some of the other guy's can help you set that up (I have not run dual clients from the one card before )
i just picked the first one in the list when you click download now
just started running it
is it too soon to see scores?
That is OK
You can use FahMon to monitor your clients progress.
alright i have it setup
how would i add it to that
i clicked add client and did the location to it in
but it wont show it just says N/A?
f@H is gpu based?
For the location did you use C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Folding@home\
Yes the GPU2 client is for folding with graphics crads.
i am going to remove F@H off this computer since i am upgrading my cpu/mobo/ram and making a F@H rig with the current cpu/mobo/ram but i need to get a psu/case/gpu for it
if anyone has anything i am willing to trade stuff in my sig for parts for my F@H rig
just had my first 18k day so maybe im back on track. Fingers crossed.
Just snagged a PCP&C Silencer 750w Quad. Now I just need my GTX 260s. Bogmali! Stop upgrading your hardware. If you upgrade your hardware whilst I attempt to upgrade mine, then you will still outpace me. This is quite clearly unfair in the rules I just made up for our Fold Off. If you do not cease and desist, I'll make vague sexual references at you.
Oh, does anyone know if I can still snag a legit Key for Windows 7 betas? I want to have a 64 bit OS on this so I can use VMWare (and also try out Win7). I'm sure I can find downloads of the beta but I don't really want to use a keygen, and seeming I've never looked into this before I know absolutely nothing.
Muahahaha. Thanks Stanhemi.
Now the last thing I need is to conjure up some cheap GTX 260s 216s. Unfortunately this is proving to be the hardest. For the time being though I'm going to run a 9800GTX in the second rig, which will allow me to get the q9450 up and running. I'll fend you off yet Bogmali, you doer of evil.
Nice, all my rigs are now dust-free, up and running back to the folding duties
Welcome back mmaakk!
I guess bogmali isn't that happy with my return
Bogmali is going to get a whole lot more facefuls of steaming hot unhappy as my plans near completion. Woe unto him.
Wow, a lot of mentioning of me on here
I was busy swapping out my main rig and converting it into a Core i7 (sorry El). Finally done and my GTX275 just started folding too (sorry again El). Welcome back Mmaakk, let's see if you can regain your old spot.
Curses! No seriously, curses. You'll be topping me in PPD. Hands down. Mind you, there's a K9A2, 9950BE, for sale here. I've got 2 people offering PSUs that could work so I could pick up a spare. All I'd need is a good cooler and 4 x 'something nice' nVidia cards. Eh damn. My bank balance. My poor bank balance.
Now all I need is 3 others and 1400 - 1500 CAD to spare. Hmm.
800 USD GPU
180 USD CPU Mobo Ram
30 USD Cooler
Proabably 100 CAD extra for additional shipping to Canada charges.
100 CAD PSU
My semperon + 8800GTS folding rig should be up this week. Just waiting on the CPU!
our WCG team needs some help here on TPU.
you can "crunch" on your cpu while you fold on your gpu's and your machine will still run very smooth for every day usability.
i invite you to help us here... http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=85784
alot of us "crunchers" are folding at the same time.
Kursah, me, dark2099, cyberdruid, just to name a few.
LOL. No kidding... Seriously guys, for those who are using GPU only for folding, WCG is a great way to use your excess processing power!!
yeah yeah,,,, i know.
