    4xxx and older cards won't fold anymore either. As Ion mentioned, GTX 460s are a good bang for the buck card for folding. :)

    Thanks for reporting in each time they come through, then I can suspend FAH for their duration! :toast:

    What cards do you have running them? And how fast can they complete the WUs?

    I have HD6950 and HD6570 running betas. The WU's are completed in the same time - 0.03.

    They take two minutes each on a HD6570?? :confused:
    They take ~3 times that long on a GTX460, which I would consider to be a far faster card...:wtf:

    I am surprised too.
    I have not yet today's uploaded results from HD6570, but here is the picture of betas 3 days ago. 22-PC has 6570, algis-pc - 6950.

    Ahem! I don't really need 4 GPUs and three i7s just for WCG/FAH. I'll just suffer with my nV cards, between the three it should be ~40k PPD if there are consistent WUs for them to crunch :)
    Rather remarkable! :respect:

    At least for now. Maybe I'll get a GPU for the i7-920 rig alter on, but for now I think I'll run it with an 8400GS :)

    EDIT: And they're gone :(

    Check on it again in a little bit- I got a small batch first and now they are coming in 4 at a time like last time ;)

    ** EDIT- another short run... only had 10 wu's come through :( **

    Oh well, maybe I'll get some more later on. At least I'm now back up to ~35k PPD in FAH :)

    I have some coming in too- WCG is feeding them in 4 at a time on my main rig... too bad I can only run one at a time.

    If they're going to be coming in this regular I may have to consider reinstalling the 6850 and 6870 Hawk for awhile :D

    Awesome! I just suspended FAH and pulled down some on all three of the cards. Now to see how the GTX470 does with them :)

    EDIT: They're taking just over 3.5 minutes each, vs ~6 on the GTX460s. Sweet :D
