    I love Oily's screenshot, it looks like my computer builds.

    Gaming rig "9600GSO"
    Folding rig "GTX 260"

    Very nice guys, keep adding cards!

    Ok here is the deal with me:

    I am at college, no way to maintain my main rig back home! When I go back during November I will have it folding 24/7. When I left initially for college the power was out 1 day after, so I did not even finish a WU!

    My 4850 is not alot, I really need to get an NVIDIA card, but I really don't have the time or money to get one, drive home for a weekend and install it.

    Adding you up right now.

    You won't see too much difference, the GPUs and SMPs all still run fine. If you were setting your process priority before using Prifinity, you'll notice that it doesn't play too well with Windows 7 (could just be x64 Win7 though, not sure). As a result I'm going to recommend going with Process Lasso. Its actually proven to be a better program over Prifinity in general (for my tastes) and it works flawlessly in Win7 x64 which is what really matters.

    Other than that, everything is essentially the same. I believe you will no longer need to use dummy plugs on multiple GPU systems (if you have one) because the nVidia driver set 190.xx is supposed to allow for folding on all cards without the dummy plug installed.|


    OH! You will need to get the 6.24 drop in binary file (http://folding.stanford.edu/English/DownloadWinOther) and drop it in your SMP folder if you use the regular SMP client. This will extend the expiration date of the client to July 4, 2010 and allow the client to actually do work units. Otherwise you'll get an 'out of date' type message.

    Welp, my father just bitched at me for having my computer on "for no reason."
    So again, my computer will be on whenever I can get it on and keep it on.
    Sorry mates :(

    OK 2 9800 GTX+ running now. Takes me so long to set up these multi card setups. Forgot to extend the desktop:banghead::banghead::banghead: After reading about theonedubs heat problems with his 9800 GTX I was a little worried but got these from Boggy and they humming along at 68c. Falmon says another 13000 ppd but we will see.:toast:

    Yup, never had any heat issues with those. I even cranked the clocks on those and the temps stayed at about the same as stock:D

    Yeah, my Galaxy has a non-reference cooler. I am not sure what cooler those 9800GTXs have, but if they are the reference dual slot, rear exhaust coolers that the GT2xx series has heat will never be a problem. My GTX 260 216 runs @ 75% fan speed in 100F+ ambient and usually only hits 69-70 (72 on rare esp hot days).

    As for my Folding- I have a GTX 275 coming my way that should be up by Wednesday to replace my 260. My 9800GT in WCG1 will go offline, but will be upgraded with my GTX 260 and Rosewill 600w PSU.

    Expect me to make the full switch over in December. I will be F@H with an HD5850, HD2600XT (if I haven't sold it). My HD4850 is being decomissioned as a backup card as soon as the HD5850 dishes out. Its rare you get a 750Mhz stable HD4850 w/o any Software/Hard Mods Who knows, maybe if I RMA the card a few weeks b4 the warranty runs out... I will get an HD5850 in return... hehehe

    I feel your pain brother. These things run so hot that I have to place them on the outside of my rigs so they can intake cooler air. Obviously, Galaxy saved alot of money on the cooler.:shadedshu I really shouldn't complain since I got these for $70.00/ea shipped.

    Hey El Fiendo... you could change my status to something along the lines of occasionally poking you in the eye on the pie chart.
