I never tried a quad slot PCI-e board. I don't really know how's gonna be the ATI Catalyst reaction for that.

My guess is no problems. Should work.

PS. At least for now, folding with 4 ATI cards is not that big deal. With two 88hundred you'll get better results. I'm saying that just in case you decide to buy ATI cards instead of nVidia for folding.

I use my maching for gaming and folding on the side. Thats really the reason I have sorta held back folding with 2 cards, I like the sli boost for gaming.

But If I could do both using a motherboard like that ( sli 2 cards for gaming and fold with 2 cards at the same times ) then I am going to get one.

Hello Sir. atnevon!

You need to config -GPU 0 and -GPU 1. Where Zero is your primary PCI-e slot.

For multi GPU folding, just follow the link:

http://folding.stanford.edu/English/WinGPUGuide#ntoc4

Is not complicated at ALL. Basically you'll need to create a new folder and config 2 shortcuts - for GPU 0 and GPU 1.

Good luck :rolleyes:
Thanks mmaakk, I'm a little confised by the configuration. Is this something I need a BIOS config, Device Manager, ATiTool, ect? I assume this is how I can control 2 fanspeeds for my card.

Also, I'm reading overt the Duel GPU guide now. If this isn;t folding as well as it should, I may just send it back to the Egg, and trade for a 8600 or so. Either way, I got this primaraly as a PhysX card. But if the 8600 work puts out the right numbers, I'll see.

Thanks agian,
-Andrew

PS - I like the "Sir Atnevon". May be a new tag for something someday. Like a badass knight or something.

Hello Sir, again! :roll:

All you need to control fan speed is RivaTuner:

http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=163

Very easy to use, and you can control multiple cards fan speed, OC'ing, etc...

http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=6369&start=45&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

If you have an ATI card and want to upgrade the core:

1 - Close F@H app.

2 - Go to:

XP : C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Folding@Home-gpu

Vista: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Folding@Home-gpu

3 - Rename or delete "FahCore_11.exe" - Rename for backup.

4 - Restart F@H app.

The new core will be automatically downloaded to your PC.

You can check if you got the latest core opening the log file: Right click Status/Log file.

9600 GSO 384mb back in stock @ Newegg for 49.00 after MIR w/free shipping

The venerable 9600 GSO Dual Slot is back in stock @ Newegg for $49.00 after rebate w/free shipping. Great deal on a 5200+ PPD card that only draws 80 watts overclocked. You know you have open PCI-E slots and most 400+ watt PSU's can handle 2X GS/GSO cards folding. C'mon Guy's , pick up one and fold the $%@# out of it for TPU! :rockout:

I think my 8800gt's are better?
But the cost of the 8800GT is $110.00 with no rebate available. Therefore the 9600 GSO pwns the 8800GT @ PPD per dollar.

Try to find out first if you can find an old F@H gpu client. The latest one is compatible only with the Radeon 2K and up. For ATI cards of course.
F@H no longer supports the GPU1 client(i.e. no servers or work units available). See below quote:

May 23rd, 2008
We are nearing the end for the GPU1 project. Our plan is to deactivate the GPU1 client on June 2, 2008.

:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::roll:

How about the HD 2600XT? How much PPD would I get out of that? I saw one for sale £55 yesterday, that seemed quite expensive to me. and the 3850 AGP is selling for around that price on ebay.
