    well it looks like i found a pair of 460s for $200 and a 3rd for $115. they all seem to be v2 cards and the one i have is a v1 card, is there any significant difference?

    Before i break anything, is it ok running a GTX470 + 2x GTS450 in the same machine.

    I have the 470 in atm and it's driver installed. I'd add the 450s in lower slots.

    maybe different Vregs or slightly different layout or type of DDR5 ram chips

    like me the 2 HIS HD5770 are the same model name but have vastly different coolers the old one has Hynix ram chips where as the new one uses Elpida

    Bad news on the folding front here. Rolling blackouts. I am having trouble keeping my rig up. Power just keeps cutting out. Good luck to all folders in these tough times! I'm in Texas too! How is this happening?!?

    My favorite part is how the internet is still up. Ethernet and phone are working fine. I am using power from the phone lines on my laptop, so I am self sustainable. Too bad it is not enough to power my folding rig!

    I really can't recommend the 430 for anything more than a HTPC card, they get 3-5 k and on fluke occasions get 6-7 k PPD, but usually 3-5k.

    I can recommend the ASUS ENGTX460 DirectCU TOP, it runs about 38-44c at load, and gets 10-12k PPD.

    Just for the sake of curiousity, would a quad-socket Opteron rig outperform a Sandy Bridge build which gives about 46k PPD on -bigadvs?

    Depends on the CPU. Deadthings @ NCIX has a quad G34 rig that puts out 110K+ PPD, although the basic costs may be prohibitive. Looking forward to Bulldozer....

    Give me two weeks and I will tell you. I'll have my Quad Socket 1207 running then.

    Does anyone have a socket 775 board with two PCI express slots that they are not using and want to get rid of cheap? I have enough stuff for a complete system with two cards to fold with except for the mb and psu. I checked a couple pages worth of the for sale threads without much luck. I'm trying to get this on the cheap since the old lady lost her job a few months ago. I've been lucky enough to run most of my folding rigs at a friends place since he pays a flat rate for electricity at his apartment. However, I still have to supply the hardware...

    In short, any unused boards or even leads to someone with one I'd appreciate it. Should also be able to add about 10k PPD if I can find one.

    Well, cross your fingers all. Corsair received my tx750 killer-death psu today. Hopefully I'll be getting a new one soon. Hertz also today shipped my folding equipment to start getting all my spare cards up and folding 24/7. And of course I also get my new baby, the q9450. I won't need to rely on my main system anymore to pump out da points!
    Edit: Hertz probably didn't want to go too public with this, but he just helped me out a huge amout, and I got way more
    than I payed for. I probably will have to offer him a bit more. He really came through for me.
