    GTX 275 is basically an already OC'd GTX 260 216 when it comes to folding. You can reach the same or higher as a stock GTX 275 by overclocking the GTX 260 216. From what I understood anyways.

    Correct, but a GTX 275 is a GTX 280 core with GTX 260 memory interface. For the money, go with the GTX 260 216sp for folding. You will not be sorry.

    PS. I could get (edit)2 open box 260's for the price of a single 275;)

    Everything helps man I don't care if you're folding with 1 8600GT, it might just be your card that finds a cure to one of these diseases while it's folding:D

    For those who are unaware, many Folders and WCG members have joined forces to better both of our teams. It's been extremely successful so far. Just wanted to let all of you know that there is a WCG contest starting June 15th. The prize is a Xclio 1000 full tower case, shipped to your door! This is opened to all WCG members, and it's structured so that anyone can win, not just the power crunchers. If interested, get the details here:

    How about let's all join forces to battle things like cancer and hunger instead of personal or team glorification. I will continue to fold and crunch away, but I really don't want to be apart of any contest or competition to do so.

    I agree with you here. However, some people need a bit of encouragement to become involved, then they see the value of what they are doing. That's the purpose of this contest, to bring in new members. If you look at the teams who produce the best results, they often use contests in this way.

    You can elect to not be a part of the contest. Many of us have chosen this already, as the prize should be aimed at new recruits. Keep on folding and crunching erocker!

    A lot of things.......UNSTABLE_MACHINE.......EUEs.....mandatory 24 hour pause (unless you restart it again) just to name a few.....You need to constantly monitor your Rigs/clients.

    Oh I forgot the most annoying thing..Automatic Windows Update and restarts.
