    I have now been trying to convert one of my folders to Linux (dual boot) but one of the things that kept me from during it was that I couldn't make an instant switch between folding and crunching, or so I thought.

    Running it through VM will be resource heavy on the CPU, which might not go too well with high end graphics cards and GPU3.

    If you have that combo you might want to look into running GPU3 through Wine in linux. That way you might get better results for crunching/folding on same rig in linux.

    I just bought a 2600K! I'll be moving my Q9550 to replace one of my E8400 rigs. I'll probably give either my p35 /w WIFI or my p45 MB to my brother and the E8400 cpu will either go to him or my nephew. :toast: Now all i need is a MB!... hehehe

    About the question will linux crunch.. hehehe hell yea :toast:

    You would know! :) Yeah, when I have the budget to build crunchers, I'll definitely use Linux. More crunching and I can spend that extra $100 (Win7 Home Premium x64 OEM) on a beefier CPU!
    Thanks for the info guys, that's quite useful. :toast:

    It should still be there. It's in the main Win7 versions. (Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise)
    Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Snipping Tool

    Quick question fellow crunchers. What PSU would you recommend for my Intel Rig to replace my HX1000? Im asking cause I would like to carry over my Corsair to my Bulldozer build in the summer. For the forseeable future the rig will continue to house both 4850s but will be relagted to wife and/or kid usage (FB and internet). im thinking something in the 650-850 watt range should do the trick and i dont want to spend more than $100-130 on it.

    Im in Canada so Newegg.ca prices or links plz. Any and all advice/suggestions are welcome.
