It's the wu, those don't seem to heat up the card much. Your temps are excellent, but when you get a 511 point wu, you'll see those temps go up. I'm in the mid 50's most of the time with my 260.

Well, i have a GTX260 in my rig. I fold most of the time with that. Then i have an 8800GTS 320MB in a spare rig (Going to be sold on Tuesday). Took the 8800GTS out and put it in my rig as a dedicated folder. Everything worked fine, had it hooked up to my Asus by DVI, and my GTX260 by HDMI. Booted to windows and it recognized the 8800GTS. Went to display options and the desktop had been extended. Looked at setting up the GPU-1 client... it looked abit confusing, so i PMed Bogmali, and he told me you can fold on a GTX260 and 8800GTS in the same machine... *sadface* ...

All that work, even had to cut part of my desk for the 8800GTS to fit... lol.

So now i've just set it to do PhysX, haha, may aswell make use of it

I just bought myself a MSI K9A2 Platinum off of eBay.

I haven't been able to decide what processor to buy. Should I buy a X2, X3 or X4? Get the cheapest or invest up to $150?

For my initial set up all I need is the motherboard and processor. When it's running I'll probably get several of those Galaxy GTS250s.

CPU is up to you. I run cheapo Athlon X2's and use them to crunch. I guess it depends on your ambitions for the rig. The GTS 250 run very hot. I have applied AS5, but the temps are still around 80C. 4 of those packed tight on that K9A2 Platinum might be a nuclear meltdown.

Athlon x2 isnt cheap in Canada, in fact almost non-exsistant. I'm scrounging up for a p45 mobo and e8500 now, and not sure if I can get those, and if I do, it'll cost me. Used to be nice to fold!

@msgclb-You can get a cheap Phenom so you have the luxury of a quad for crunching. Those 4 GTS250 will fit right in there without blocking your SATA and I/O panel connectors.

Anyone having issues with F@H with the 9.5's?

Locks my system up every time within 30 seconds, yes even at stock clocks.

Ya, granted I was trying the graphical one, but it shouldn't be locking up...

I was more or less seeing if the new drivers have made ati significantly better at folding yet, figured if they did I would start running it on my machine again.

It's been an extreme pleasure serving TPU and adding to the cause. I realize now that I can't afford to do this, if I had money I sure would! I have to save my equipment for now, and fyi now everything is working again. If I am in a position where I can do it again, I will fold! Fold On!

Anyone Folding a GTX275? What are its PPD's and power usage? With news that ATI may be dropping prices by $50 on their HD48xx line in Q3, maybe the GTX275 will drop down too.

Had one and wasn't pleased with it (at least the one that I have) at all. I would go back to a 260_216 if I get a chance. PPD was like 5-6K depending on what driver you use:rolleyes:
