    can 7800GTX do F@H? i'll put my q6600 on it and my 7800GTX, and what about internet bandwidth, i'm downloading a large file right now, do i need things like that turned off or just lessen the bandwidth settings for it?

    okay, now what about proxy, does it speed it up or anything?

    forget about proxies. and F@H uses like 110% of your GPU, and some memory and cpu.

    F@H uses almost no internet bandwidth and when it does it's only for a few seconds. Don't bother setting up a proxy unless you're terrified of Stanford and don't want them knowing your IP address.

    The Geforce 7 series (your card) isn't supported by the GPU client, so use the SMP client for your CPU.

    well SOB, haha i just opened the application and i guess it was still running, task manger shows 2 F@H processes, didn't know it still ran when i exited the app. but it said error reading or loading data and said it deleted everything and was requesting a new WU. bummer

    65th now?!?! How'd that happen? I've been folding on my 4850s, but are they that powerful? I always thought that they folding client for 4XXX GPUs was crap and didn't work properly.
