    :laugh:I edited it when i realized that we would lose the -bigadv bonuses(72k vs 8.5K) with your passkey, so GPU makes more sense.

    Oh true I was thinking you all were doing amp for some reason. You could still do bigadv just change the username and leave your passkey :)

    No can do. The passkey is linked to the username. Can't mix any of them. Can't download a -bigadv and send it to another user to finish either. I'm going GPU and have 43K ppd in your name already.

    On another note: I want to congratulate the entire team on passing the 500 Million point mark and for averaging 1.5 Mil PPD. We are now #15 in the world for Avg PPD.

    I have 4 GTX460's on your name Josh154 and you should see a slight boost on your points tonight. Will add the 2 GTX460's tomorrow when I get to work.

    I added 2 more GTX460's and took back the -bigadv. Buck's reasoning made more sense that doing it my way. That's why he's the King of Folding on TPU....Josh154TPU?

    Ok, I added 2 more GTX card's to your name Josh154TPU. It will take a couple of updates before it takes effect or you start noticing the difference.

    I know that this PSU not much bigger, but this is also an alert for anyone else, how about a XFX 650 watt PSU AND a XFX GT240 for $85 after MIR's ($70's worth) and a combo discount, plus shipping (showed me $6.77) The reviews on that PSU are mixed.

    Bring it to me. I need to heat up my work shop after a water pipe broke. 650 W folding could help my 270 W rig to dry it up. It only have to last the winter. I'm sure that I could make a $400 15K PPD folding rig if I lived in the US, but I don't. :) Good deal otherwise.

    As I was discussing in this thread here:
    Interested in Folding. 2 questions:

    I want to begin folding and setup a secondary (folding only) PC. It will be very low budget since I'm a broke college student. I do not intend to get it a monitor, keyboard, mouse, chassis etc. (I'll VNC into it). Currently, I'm thinking to get the follwing:

    Athlon II x3 (and try unlocking) / Phenom II x2 555BE (try unlocking to quad/OC'ing)
    A socket AM3 motherboard
    2x1Gb RAM
    GTX 460

    What are your thoughts?

    sounds good :cool:

    see if you can find a cheap am3 board with 2 pci-e slots or more, (in case you wanna expand)

    so i got my system up and running now, i7 + 2x275s

    i only have 1 monitor, and i heard someone saying that i dont need 2 monitors anymore to fold on the second card?

    is this true?

    Btw, do I need to have atleast 1 monitor to fold? Does it matter if I have no monitor hooked up?

    That's good for around 10,000 PPD at stock clocks so nothing small about that contribution;) :toast:

    Newest NVIDIA drivers should allow you to extend the monitor onto a card that doesn't have a screen connected. But I'm not sure if that's why my dedicated rig was crashing, so try it first and if not make a cheap dummy plug

    If you are only folding on one card you don't need a monitor for it :D
