    Got to add a GTS240 into action for a few days here, seems to do pretty good.

    Going to snap in a 9300GE for some more 24x7 action too, not a lot of points but works.

    could you give us an idea of about how many points the GTS240 pulls?

    Yes, dammit! I'm still short 10k+ from that glitch that happened! Waiting for my update... I have to rebuild my server tomorrow, it will be dual card capable now, in the next 2 months I'll be looking for a cheap gtx260 to throw in it to fold 24/7 alongside with my 9800gtx. Won't be able to this month as I ordered turtle beach hpa2s....

    I will check today, I would guess around 6k, but I should have a answer for you in about an hour or so here.

    It's not clocked btw, just sitting in an i5 rig I put together for a customer, figured I would beat on it before it left :p

    Looks like the GTS240 kicked out about 5500PPD.

    Ug, when it rains, it pours! I finally figured out what was wrong with my server, the psu! And the only spare I have can't feed my 9800gtx.... so I may be down for a month until I can order a psu with proper amperage. Oh well, at least I figured out what was wrong with my server all this time!

    Sorry, I'm a bit excited, bad news, but it means I will be able to run 2 servers, and 3 video cards 24/7 when I'm done. Just tested my sli athlon mobo on the other psu, fires right up! So now I need 2 psus. If anyone in Canada has a 36amp sli capable used psu handy, I've got paypal....

    I just used Fahmon and let it calculate off all frames and last 3, both numbers were identical. The machine ran it for about 3 days.

    Lastly, the card was at stock clocks, unfortunately I didn't check to see what those were and the machine is gone.

    Early next week I'm going to place an order that will include a video card. I've been considering a GT 240, a GTS 250 or an 9800GTX+. I'd like to get another GTX 260 Core 216 but I can't afford it. Whatever I buy I'll get another one when I can afford it.

    there all about the same cards. Get the GTS250 or 9800GTX+ just get the cheaper of the 2.

    also 9800GT's are some good cards for price/performance

    I'll second this, my friend with a 9800GTX+ (he folds for EVGA) gets about 6-7K PPD with it (OCed). Great card, especially with the recent prices :toast:

    I may have gotten too many dual slot 384MB 9600GSO's! :eek: Before I pick up the second one, is anyone interested in one for $40 plus shipping? I'm not tryng to sell it here, just judging interest. I'm not making a dime.

    frig, frig, frig.... it looks like my gtx280 is done. Couldn't even install windows on my main rig, until I swapped out my 280 for my 9800gtx. Frig. 2 280s in a row now. Except I can't get a replacement for this one. Live and learn! I though my nice new intel sytem was f*ddd, oh well it's only my gtx280! I'm going to start saving up now for a gtx380.......
    Edit: I'm upset, but very happy my intel system is still rocking....
    Edit: It's been a pleasure to fold for TPU! I will return as soon as possible.
