    Well I got a 9800GTX running again, and so I decided to install folding@home for it.

    So now I will be crunching on WCG on the CPUs, and then using my GPU for folding at home seeing that WCG isn't GPU crunching yet.

    WOW my GT240 put out 3,581 points yesterday! That's around 1.4x more than my 8800gt! with less power! All the GT240 uses is the PCI-E slot power! that's with both at stock! It's more on pair with my 9600gt! My 9600gt was 40 bucks more.. and used a lot more power.

    How would a GT240 compare to a 9600GSO?

    A bit better (higher clocks IIRC), but not significantly because they both have 96 shaders...if you can deal with the extra 35w the 8800GT or 9800GT really seems like a better F@H card (~5.5K PPD average vs ~4k)

    Well, in that case I'd say find a used 8800GT or 9800GT in the $65-75 range, OC it a bit and enjoy 5k+ PPD (I got ~6K out of mine when OCed on 353pt WUs, obviously less on the others)

    Yeah, I got my laptop sold, so I'm playing with the idea of getting another GPU and stuffing my 9600gso in my server, once I get the money

    I would pick the GT240 over the 8800gt if it were going to be my main card. Power vs. Performance is great. 2 in SLI would be nice for gaming, but ION is correct if your only going to use it to crunch then 8800GT and then OC the shit out of it.

    The only thing really holding my GT240 back is my AMD Athlon 4200+ x2. I hope to replace it with a new x6 down the road.

    My uncle's got a g92 8800gts he's trying to get rid of. If it's still around when I get my money, I'll buy it from him. I have a feeling it'll be a while though...

    Still a great card for folding. I remember that I broke the 7k PPD barrier with that card.

    That good? I only get ~3500 out of my G80 8800GTS, what sort does the G92 revision get?

    Your G80 8800GTS has 96 shaders and is 90nm. The G92 revision has 128 shaders and is 65nm. It also has more memory bandwith.

    Yep, I'm well aware of the specs of the 8800GTS I have, but I'm just surprised that the extra 32 shaders could make as much of a difference as thebluebumblebee's post was implying. I guess that they're clocked a lot higher as well.

    BTW, I should be back up to ~5K PPD before too long, I'm almost certainly going to be trading (straight trade) the 8800GTS G80 I have for the 8800GT I used to have. The guy I'd be trading with wants the GTS because it has more memory...I told him the GT is still faster, and he still wanted the GTS. I'm not going to argue any more since it means a better card and ~1.5k PPD more for free

    Whats up everyone, Got the new PSU in and working, the gtx 260 and 8800gt are both in. Have to see if the gtx 280 still works. Then overclock the CPU again. Maybe with some luck and a little help I could be back folding this weekend.

    The 4200+ should not be holding back a Nvidia client. ALL of my systems are socket 939.

    :eek:OVERCLOCK:twitch:

    Here's my HFM.net of my "produce stand"
    I believe that they're all G92, a2 cores (the Nvidia ones)
    Clocks:
    9600GSO:555/1728/800 Asus Glaciator Fansink-no fan control but runs cooler than my other cards! Asus proprietary design, makes updating drivers fun.:mad: Asus is a 4 letter word you know.:p
    8800GT: 600/1720/700 XFX with HEAVY but small copper heatsink and fan. Will clock as high as the GTS, but I'm scared to do it with that small fan.
    8800GTS:670/1890/972 EVGA ref design

    [​IMG]

    Anyone interested? $40 GSO's

    oops, the test_gpu's are 9600GSO's

    Very nice I had a 8800 gts! Kickass card. :rockout: :toast:

    G92 8800gts was pretty much the same as the 9800 gts. The 9800gts were just rebranded G92 8800gts if i remember correctly. Isn't that true buck?

    Do you mean 9800GTX? There was no 9800GTS. The 9800GTX is an OCed/rebranded 8800GTS 512.
