    Folding leans toward the Nvidia, as ATI is still behind in production. The 285 will handle the res no problem, but I think on the cheap the 275 may cover your needs as well. Really depends on how much of a gamer you are.

    For what your OP states, Id nab the 285 stricktly for folding without any other conciderations.
    deathmore says thanks.

    I havent folded my 275, but my GTS250 is worth 4-5K a day and my GTX280 was woth 6-7K if I remember right. Maybe pop this part of the question in our folding at home section of the forums if folding is really going to be it's main task, they could help you tons more than I can with more up to date info. http://forums.techpowerup.com/forumdisplay.php?f=67
