The torrents don't affect folding, they only affect how quickly the screen transfers when using VNC. I googled remote desktop apps earlier, and apparently VNC is known for lagging :) The PC I am folding on is currently the only PCI-E 3 capable board, and the only system currently running (until next month, hopefully) that supports 4TB drives without extra drivers :)

Things will change next month, when I will have a good AM3 system and an Ivy Bridge system. Waiting for a 1090T for the AM3 system (and it seems I have 5 AM3 boards to test it in), and I haven't bought an Ivy yet, so hope I can find a 3770K cheap :) Might have to save for a Ryzen system next year :)

Newegg has the EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti SC ULTRA GAMING for $240 after promo code and MIR. Any idea how well it will F@H?

@thebluebumblebee
I have a GTX1660 that I bought for my future main PC rebuild. Running in my now partially crippled main PC with the exactly the same settings in MSI Afterburner, the 1660 very slightly outperforms my 1070. I also just checked the power usage. In addition, according to HWINFO the 1660 is using 20 fewer watts. I might actually do better once I put it into what will be a faster PC. I'll report back then.

I've paused f@h for a while (probably 4 weeks) due to overspending on a couple of second hand upgrades and not having surplus for the electric.

Switching from FM1 to AM3 (with an FX 6300, as they are not too expensive, have 6 cores and are unlocked). Also building less powerful Z97 and Z270 systems, purely for GPU folding (until I can afford 4c8t or better CPUs for them). Z170 + i7 6700K will become my everyday PC and video reencoder (most videos I download have file sizes way too large for the format and resolution). I hope to be back folding before the new year, if I can resist overdoing the amount of DDR4 I buy for the Z270 board :).

Take your time and don't worry about it :D You're contributing a load to the team which we are massively grateful for :D :D

As for DDR4, I'd suggest getting as much as you can.. I'm generally thinking with the prices being lower, 32Gb might be a feasible option :) I'm thinking towards the 3200 to 4000 if the price is right :)

I had bought 2 x 4GB 2400MHz to get up and running. The package arrived today - seller sent 1 x 16GB DDR4 2666 and 1 x 8GB DDR3 1600. The DDR3 I have no use for, but the DDR4 2666MHz will be useful when I can afford another (in the new year, probably). I informed him of his mistake - the 2666 is worth almost double what I paid, so I'm hoping he doesn't send what I bought and want a return :) Not sure I want that much at below 3000MHz though :)

Well that sucks but I hope that things get sorted out easily for you :) Sometimes some sellers can be real pains... Others can't seem to do enough for you... Its strange how that works... :(
