anyone happen to have any video cards for sale?
Gotta give us more than that. Price range or performance level.
Are you planing to start folding again?
I sold my ATI so i am looking for a decent folding card. looking to spend around 150 or less. Performance of a 5830 or higher.
I will be folding with that and my 8600gt. I would like to fold more but the power bill is telling me not to. And to top it off we have had 5 days that it is over 100f (with heat index)
460 is still the best card PPD/money wise as far as I know.
I have beeen looking to get a 460 or 465. Seems that my choices aren't bad then.
If electricity usage is important to you, don't get the 465. 460, 560 non Ti (just the 5xx version of the 1GB 460) and 560Ti are the way to go in PPD/watt for GPU's with the 560Ti at the top. (I'm intentionally leaving out the 460 2win and the 590 because of their price in PPD/watt)
i should have 2 x 480s up and running by the end of this week for the team
I haven’t been home in Denmark for the past 4 weeks but I can see it has been a cold summer. With these two GPUs you will at least have summer temperature indoor
they have zalman coolers on them but yeah, they are still hot, but for the price , (2200) DKK i couldnt say no
im considering getting another 5870 while i can still get a ref ver from somewhere,or getting a 5850 to go in this sys instead of the gt240 which i cant enable folding anyway, if ref it will get a water block to reach 1 ghz like the one i have the question is does the v7 client use all the shaders anyway?
cheers, tut, ive decided to not bother, ill wait for (7xxx's)
Hey team, hope everyone is having a great summer and staying safe and healthy! Just figured i'd stop by and give a shout out. Working for another 2 weeks then taking some time off to finish school so hopefully i'll have more time to visit then.
Keep on folding for the cause, have missed you guys here greatly. (no homo)
So i ordered a GTX460 1gb and what i got was a GTX560ti 1gb
Should i keep it or should i demand a gtx460?
I have it overclocked to 1ghz/2ghz (core/shader) and it seems to be stable.
What did you pay for?
Edit: You're sure it's a Ti, not a GTX560? GPU-Z shot please
Are you seriously asking this question???? Of course you keep it! Free upgrades rock.
My slumlord landlord informed me a while ago that my rent will be increased, due to higher electrical bills... guess my 3xgtx260s and single 280 running 24/7 makes that much diff? oh well, im not going to stop......
Im sure it is a ti. I paid 119 nib shipped. I will give you a gpu-z when I get home,im at the gym finishing up my cardio.
I paid for a gtx460 1gb btw
I challenge fellow Canadians to add to this folding effort. We have been getting unseasonably cold temps all summer. come on!!!!!!
Send some of that cool weather to your brothers in the lower 48!
You sure it's not a 550ti? 560ti's range between $180-$225 depending on rebates and discounts.
100% positive. I checked it over multiple times,it has 2 6pins also
Im cutting back on Distributed Computing for the month to see how it affects my utility bill.
Whats the website? If that's what they're sending instead of 460FTWs for $120 I would buy at least a pair of cards.
I found it on Ebay. I looked for the link but it doesn't seem they have anymore.
Great find dude and that would be an upgrade from a GTX460
13K PPD vs 10K PPD!
