    Yes it is a nice looking board you got there.

    I find it hard to beleive that the scores are correct, but two showing wrong is a bit strange.

    Talking about scores I got 8995 points for a 6900 WU not the 92.000 I was hoping for this morning. I had to shut the PC off (didn't do the Ctrl C but hit the X) for a short while during installation of a new oven (I'm not a good electrician :ohwell:) . I hope that I'm still qualified for bonus. This night will tell.

    So, I went looking for F@H results for the GTX560 and found that it was harder than I thought it would be. I found 2 reviews from a trusted source for Folding numbers with numbers for the GTX560. Review for the reference versions of the 500 series cards here and a round up of several GTX560's, with very interesting results here.

    Folding results from the round-up review:

    Thanks HardwareCanucks!

    That it pretty impressive, but my 470 can hit those numbers on air, and can be had for the same or less than a new 560. All the same if I was buying a card today I would be looking at the 560.

    Also I should break 1 million today.

    So it seems if you get a 560, an OC it then you can come close to matching the 580 in PPD.

    I was going to buy a new psu today, I did a check of my bank account. $305.87 missing. Some one was using my debit card to purchase in the UK.:mad: My debit account is now closed.

    Hate it when that happens. After a business rip to Romania the staff of one off the 5 star hotels used my card to buy for about $2000 in a internet shop in Spain. It was a computer shop and a company card so he was almost forgiven. Got the money back.

    Oh yeah bro thanks for those 460's. I wanted to get 2 more. I think I might have overpaid, but not my money right? But I get the 460's and you get your money back! Win win right? :laugh:

    No money back here. Someone got my debit card number, I think that I lose. Technology In the Home cleared before I could stop payment. $289.99 lost. That would have been one hell of psu.:shadedshu

    Cancel the card immediately. Debit card or not, unless they had your PIN it is treated as a Credit Card sale. Therefore you are protected. File a claim with your bank immediately for a refund of the fraudulent charges. You will fill out affidavit's. I got taken for $1200.00+ about 2 yrs ago on my debit card and got a full refund within a week. I remember that some of the transactions had still not cleared, so I had transferred everything into savings. My bank then tells me to transfer back to checking to let the charges clear. I asked if they were insane:laugh: and followed their instructions against my better judgment.

    Decision time-

    [​IMG]

    Don't really want to cut up the stock cooler on this one, so its this card as is or my GTX 470 w/ the AXP. Folding performance is paramount, noise and temps next.

    IMO the 570 doesn't have the same overclocking headroom as the 470, mine are doing 16.5k + PPD with almost no voltage bump, and under 60c on air.

    Same here...mine gives anywhere between 16-17k PPD, OC'ed to 850Mhz and never crosses 70degrees (although I do use a aftermarket cooler). But 470s are getting really cheap these days.

    EDIT

    Just throwing it out there: my folding rig that runs 24x7 has a free PCI-E slot in case anyone has a spare GPU that they would like to get folding.

    I put both the 570 and 470 up for sale, but I will only sell one of them. Ill let the money make the decision since its a toss up between the two cards so far to me.

    I think performance Folding will eventually favor the 570 since 800-900 seems to be the norm for OCing. Im also thinking that come summer I will be missing the cooling power of the AXP.

    I don't get bonus any longer so back to ordinary smp for a day or two and low output.

    Does the client have the passkey entered? Sometimes I get crashes and it wipes the config file.

    I did a configonly and the key was there in both rigs and it says that too when I start up the client. I had another crash today and that was the drop I think. Have to remember to up the voltage - 1.25 V is NOT enough for 4.1 GHz ;)

    Edit: strange - I get bonus for my smp WUs. Back to -bigadv once they are completed.
