    I am giving my uncle the 9600gso I won, and he said he'd give running F@H on it a shot. If he sticks with it, expect another ~2000-2500PPD from me (it's not on 24/7)

    We all have to start somewhere. My setup for WCG is more like a window planter :roll:
    A garden is 4-10 rigs, a farm is 10-30, and a plantation is 30+ :cool:

    if you only count my 24/7 crunchers i will have 5(when i get main rig running and the E7200)

    now does F@H go by rigs or amount of hardware folding?

    dont worry you will have a farm someday

    there is nothing wrong with a window planter. Everyone started off small at first.
    ATM i have a window planter but after i get my package from CP i will have a garden again that was bigger then before :cool: and trying to get more things together for another rig... I can't just have a CPU lay around without being used...(have a X2 4200+ not being used so need to get a board for it)

    I have a PSU
    GPU
    CPU
    RAM

    all i need is a HDD and mobo. They way i see it.. If you have extra parts laying around try and get some parts on the forum for cheap and build another cruncher/folder

    Absolutely, if you don't count the rigs I have at friend's houses and other places all I have is a window planter ;)

    Yeah, Badatcards seems to like a little controversy now and then. I just try to ignore him as much as possible.

    No, just a big window planter for my 2x GTX 275's and 5x GTX 260 216's. Maybe I should try Miracle Grow.:laugh:

    5 x GTX 260 216's IS miracle grow. Besides, you just got a miracle. You won the contest. :toast:

    He is just really enthusiastic. Most of the folders at HWC see you guys as folding brothers :toast:

    Now that I've got the SMP client up and running, my F@H pot plant is chugging away at a nice ~5k PPD. I might be able to convince my parents to let it run 24/7!
    HWC seems to have dropped a slight amount in production, we've got 1.9 instead of 1.7 weeks until they overtake us...
    I really need to convince my friend with his two 9800 GX2s to run GPU folding, that'd bring in about 20k PPD!

    Awesome! I'm currently running at ~5k PPD (8800GT) almost 24/7, but I'm likely going to be down all of my production starting Thursday morning (leaving for vacation).

    Those GX2s would be awesome, if you can convince him to let you fold on them and OC them a bit, they should pump out ~25k between the two on 353pt WUs, less on 787s and 1888s
