    Bro see if you can find a KVM switch it would be cheaper than buying a monitor. I have a KVM switch but I live on the north side of Austin.

    For anyone else who is folding on a 480 and has enough space to accomodate a tri-slot cooling solution, check this out:

    Best thing is that the Zalman aftermarket cooler is only £35 in UK so very well priced, probably better in USA. I'm expecting I may get 60C load temps folding judging from that. Going to get one next month and see.

    I like the temps and the RAM/VRM plate is VERY nice, but the color of the fan shroud is pretty bad to me :( Do they have different colors and is there 470 support?

    I need to get better folding and gaming. Should I pull the trigger on a 460 right now or does anyone think they'll be upgrading to 580 and possibly selling a 460? I can get a pretty good price off the egg. Heck I'm sitting at checkout right now. Figured I'd ask here real quick tho. I can't even recall if they put what part of the month the 580 will be released.

    Search KVM on CL. The first hit I got was a guy selling a KVM AND a 17" LCD for best offer. That 17" LCD should be cheap. http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/sys/2046084961.html

    Edit: pops, are you talking about the Asus for $115 after rebate? I don't think you'll find a better price for used than that.

    According to the zalman website they do have 470 support: http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Product_Read.asp?idx=407 Probably best to check it's the same one though and not a variation of the same one.

    As for the green... if it can deliver better temps I can pretend it goes well with my blue GB board

    Got my evga standard edition gtx 460 to 900/1800@1.162:rockout:. Doing around 15000 ppd on 9xx wu. Cannot speak for the 611s, as i've only got 9xx from the day it started folding. Actually (almost) as good as a oced 920 in terms of pph. Quite outstanding if you ask...:respect::respect:

    j/w, is there any diff setup or anything for folding on the 460? I'm coming from dual 250's. I figure I'll have to edit the client in fahmon. I did get that tracker v2 Buck Nasty mentioned. I like the layout better. Also any tricks or config's to get the most out of the 460?

    Thanks

    Get yourself the msi afterburner and kumbustor. Oc that beast to the temp limit your confortable with (the frequency add a little heat, but the voltage A LOT more!). Test every increase with kombustor. Install all the cuda drivers (display, sdk, toolkit), install gpu tracker, configure it (smp, auto-detect gpu, personal info and passkey) and wacth the ppd. You can even configure the tracker to stop when you start gaming...

    I think the only way to be sure would be to test everything individually. But it's VERY long and you have to have all the spare and proven good parts. So i would start by running the rig with one card and the other. See what happen. If the two card give the same behavior, then try running a proven card with the mobo/cpu. See if it passes all stability test (i'd suggest intel burn test). Chage the mobo or cpu to test each one. If everything works separately, then god really don't like you...:shadedshu

    F@H hardware alert:
    We recently talked about the GT430 as a value F@H card and I objected to the $80 price tag. Well... Newegg.com has the GIGABYTE GV-N430OC-1GL GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card for $75, free shipping and a $15 rebate bringing the price to $60. That's more like it. From one of the reviewers at Newegg:

    If someone :D could grab a GTS 450 @ $100 or that 430 as a replacement for a GTS 250 which would be the best option? Im liking the LOW power usage, but the difference in price makes me stay with the GTS.
