    I'm back in the team after a short "ppd payment" to hardwarecanucks, as this is where i got my sr-2 setup. :rockout:

    3x gtx 460 folding around 900 core 12-17k ppd each
    gtx 295 (15k ppd coming soon)
    i7 970 4,3 ghz 30-33k
    SR-2 armed with 2x Xeon L5639 (running 206*18 all day long:toast:) 130-150k

    Should be in the 200-250 k ppd zone.

    Man, 12-17k ppd for a 460? I'm going to be waiting a long time for used 5 series cards then..... I would try for used dual 470s or 480s, but I'm not sure my psu can handle those. Heck, brand new 480s are dirt cheap. Think my silverstone could handle 2 of those?
    Edit: if I full time folded 2 285s and an i7, and part time folded 2 480s and an i7, wonder what kind of ppd I could do.....

    It's great to have you back Feanor!:rockout::clap: Now lets see if we can get this PPD up to 1.5 Million for this fine team.

    With my GTX460s at 850MHz core I can get 16.8k PPD on the 5757pt WUs and as low as 11.6k on the 5187pt ones. The GTX470 is doing ~14.3k on a 5187pt one right now...but it's amazingly loud.

    I'd say you can do 2 GTX470s on an 850w PSU, my 650w isn't having any issue running dual GTX460s and an OCed i7-860. Two GTX480s would be a lot, but the GTX470s are ~200w each, so it should be OK.

    Each GTX285 should be ~9k PPD or so. And I'd say ~16-21k perhaps for a GTX480, but I wouldn't swear to it. PPD from the i7s would depend on clocks and if it was running GPUs.

    Yeah, I already found out 285s do 9k or so. The ppd for my i7s seems pretty darn low, which is why I stopped, combined with cards I melted. Used 480s are not much more than 470s, so I might as well go for them, and maybe underclock them or something. Only thing, in gaming performance, I think a 480 is maybe like 20% faster than a 285? Whereas I think the 570s are closer to 30%... Oh well, at least I'd have dx11 I guess.

    I haven't tried SMP in a long time, but I figure that at 4.3GHz my 2700k should do at least in the low 20,000s PPD without running a GPU. Not sure though, as it's staying on WCG.

    Pete, try for GTX560 Ti's. Very efficient cards and 2 of them stomp a 580.

    Yes, but they won't stomp 2 285s.... so I need at least 570s.
    Edit: just so you know, I'm trying to upgrade my main gaming computer at the same time!
    Edit2: the 285s will go to my folding box to full time fold. I do have a third box, but no psu...
    Edit3: I guess if I could find used 480s or 470s real cheap... it's a small upgrade at least.

    2x GTX460 1GB cards will squash 2x GTX285's in folding and gaming.

    Buck, It's good to see you folding again. :)

    In some cases maybe, but I want at least 20-30% increase with sli in all cases. Like I said, I'd go for 2 underclocked 480s, but in the end 570s are a way better choice. 2 470s at least would give me maybe 15% or better in sli... and more cards to add to my farm!

    I know they do nice ppd, but I really want a better gaming machine. It's my birthday, friggin 51... I want to do something nice for myself. I want that 480, well, I'd like better, but I'm going to get it. I already starve myself all the time for this junk, so a little more won't hurt! A 2nd 480 down the line shouldn't be hard to find. Even if I just run the 480 on my main, and use my 260 for physx, and move the 2 285s to my folding box, it might work out for now....

    Echh... I'm going to sell off my last 260, and try to just get 2 of those 480s at once at that price. I'm used to not eating... another month won't kill me! Who needs birthday cake....

    Thanks Mike, It's good to be folding again. It was killing me how quiet it was in this house for the last 3 months:roll:.

    Happy B-Day Pete!

    P.S. Got another P8101 dumping @ 8:30am EST today and tomorrow will be a 700K day.:clap::peace:

    Well, did a bunch more research, and I'm right the sli 285s will outperform a single 480... but not by a huge margin. Sli 480s on the other hand, kill the sli 285s by quite a bit. Not to mention dx11 support. So I may go for a single 480 for now, don't have the funds for 2, but for $179can I don't think I can pass up at least one. Will be looking for a 2nd 480 in a month. Then to test my little silverstone psu to within an inch of it's life!

    Actually, my bday is 28th... probably why it hasn't shown up yet! It's so weird, I thought 50 would bother me, but it didn't... 51 is just bugging the hell out of me! 2nd half century I'm into now I guess.

    you should have just lied now im angry and shit. the one thing i had to look forward to was making it ontime for your bday. and now i dont even have that REDICULOUS. first my coffee was sub par this morning, then my car scratched my toe. and then my room was hot. my sun glasses had a finger print. my leather seats suck ass in florida. and all the gas station had was softpacks SOFT PACKS and finally your birthday which i tried so hard to remember to congratulate you for isnt even yesterday or today or whenever i decide my days should change according to my sleep/wake schedule. IDK what to think i think my world is ending and my finger itches god what did i even do to deserve this? please please tell me.



    TL;DR

    meltdown.
