I can't tell if you're making a terminator reference here or you've persuaded someone who has the username skynet to fold for TPU...

Well, I'm not sure what you're on about. I don't know if I like his attitude, said it wouldn't matter for us soon anyways but if he's willing to help then good. Right?

By next week some time ill have a dedicated rig up and running - it'll only be crunching at first (X2 4200+) but ill add a 9600GSO or two to it and get it cranking out some PPD!

Expect me to be on here asking lots of questions soon! :D
Ready and waiting to help.:rockout:


I've enlisted the help of this guy I met on the web called Skynet. Say's he's got a bunch of machines. Should be alot of folding power for us.
He said "it wouldn't matter soon"?????????????

Yea, well technically he said it wouldn't matter for "us" soon, I wasn't really paying attention at that point. Something about cleansing disease from the Earth. I figured he'd be a good candidate for Folding and told him it'd do exactly that.

Said something about being interlinked to all computers world wide! I was pretty amazed. Might be a hacker though. Not sure of our stance here.

Oh and Kyle, yes he did as that's why I'm now here talking to you guys instead of him.

Just be wary of accepting any files from him. As far as F@H is concerned, he cannot do any damage to the likes of Stanford. Maybe he can haxor disease. :laugh: Seriously, we would love to have him on the team.

Need help choosing a card lads!

Right. Heres what ive come across so far:

8800GS (384mb DDR3)

8800GTS (whatever memory size I can snag off the bay)

Or, my personal first choice, a 9600GSO (DDR3).

I wanted to build my entire folder for £100 or less, so far im looking at £30 for a mobo / cpu / ram / generic PSU combo (friends server hes ridding himself of) but Im looking to buy a half decent PSU, HSF (both CPU + GPU) and GFX - all that on £70 or so seems nigh on impossible.

Any thoughts?

Kyle-I have both 8800GS and GTS 320MB and they're solid folders. You can crank the shaders on those between 1700-1800 and get a fairly decent PPD. I get 13K-14K PPD from all four them. I am running all four cards on a Corsair TX650W PSU.

Im considering upgrading my HX520W to a 700W Corsair unit (or similar) and using my HX in the folder. If it can handle my system specs it will destroy an X2 athlon and an 8800GS :laugh:

If i wasn't so low on spending money, i'd build a 24/7 rig for TPU. Found out yesterday that we pay a set amount on our electricity bill and were nowhere near the limit. So i've been folding 24/7 with the GTX260. Got:

2496 points today
19057 points this week

I'm trying to get a hold of a mates 9400GT or 9500GT (i forget) and bang it in my comp to fold 24/7.

And Kyle, you know your only building this rig to have a chance at catching me ;)

Be careful with the 9600GSO's. Make sure that it's the 96 shader version. An 8800GTS 512MB would be on the top of my list here for its PPD and efficiency. Next would be a 9800GT, 8800GT, 9600GSO(96sp's) and then the rest of the G80 variants. The 8800GTS 512MB will get you from 4125(511) - 6350(353) PPD depending on the WU, based on my experience with mine with the shaders clocked at 1890. But, with only £70, after you get done buying a decent PSU, you won't have any money left.:eek:
Here's what Buck said back on 2/16: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=1215924&postcount=4266
To the team: We have 16 people over 10k PPD right now. :D That's great!:toast: So, who's going to be first to get over 100K per day????? (it's not going to be me)

So, the folder to be is being set up as we speak! Some good news too!

My friend didnt specify what was in it, all he said was that it had an X2 4200 in it, a low profile GFX and 2GB of ram. Boy was I in for a surprise!

This thing has a 4600 in it, not a 4200, running on an MSI K9N4 SLI* with 2GB of DDR2 (533Mhz) with a Hiper 450W PSU! Also had a 160GB Segate Barracuda, a half decent IDE DVD drive and an Nvidia ASUS card (unknown as of yet, installing GPU-Z in a second).

So, for £30, ive got an absolute steal! Ill be crunching on it from tonight, however it wont be ran over night just yet, Im wanting to get an AC Freezer Pro installed (running stock block as it stands) and folding as soon as I get a card in :D

* Yes, its a mother freaking SLI board. SLI!! So I might buy 2 cards for it and fold on both :D

Oh, I have a few pictures to upload of it, ill post them up in a bit.
