    Yep :) And the good thing is, since the stuff I use to make my MMORPG's isn't on this system, and on a server, it won't use my CPU power :)

    And I have another 2 systems folding using regular CPU client. As soon as the 3xx0 client comes out, I'll have my GPU folding too.

    Don't waste your time GPU folding in a dual-core rig. To make the GPU client efficient you have to take CPU time away from the SMP client, and it doesn't balance out. You end up loosing more points from the SMP client than you gain via the GPU client. The GPU client is really only useful in single core rigs that can't run the SMP client.

    I just found the SMP client on my server(PD805@3.3Ghz) closed itself some time ago and I never noticed. Its back up folding. I'm still waiting on my E2180's motherboard to return from ASUS, and I am building an E1200 machine to replace an aging Athlon XP machine that will be pumping out SMP WUs here soon too.

    I'm still planning to start some rigs up here.. problem is that the 24/7 ones run passive or near passive, and the other ones arent on that often...

    That said, i have two Q6600's, an E6750 @ 3.2GHz, an FX-62, Presler 3.2 @ 4.0, and a P4 prescott (478) @ 2GHz.

    It makes me sad to know that i COULD be owning, but cant cause of stupid summer temps... (35c ambient at midnight 2 nights ago. fun fun.)

    I took the bulk of my machines off Folding duty. Not because of temperature, but because the electric bill started to get high and cut-backs had to be made.

    My Q6600, E6600, PS3, and Athlon X2 haven't been folding for over a month now.

    I'm backing down to some Single Core clients... I think SMP is making my system crash.

    Back running on my Q6600 for the time being, though it is at stock speeds. I'll probably take it back off in a week or two. My E2180 is back up running, thanks to the P5B coming back from ASUS yesterady.

    I still send a WU through my PS3 every once in a while, I mainly just turn it on and tell it to shut down after the WU ends because it is an easy way to charge the controllers. :)

    If I fold for CustomPC, I'm in with a chance of wining a second HD3850. If I win that, I'll switch back :p
