Default "Less expensive" cards for folding

Hey guys. What would be better for strickly folding ?

1x XFX GeForce 9800GTX+ Video Card - 512MB DDR3 $199-$25 rebate = $175

XFX GeForce 9800 GTX + Video Card - 512MB DDR3, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, VGA Support PVT98WYDFH in Canada at

2x XFX GeForce 9600GSO Video Card - 768MB DDR2 = $89.99 x 2 = $180

XFX GeForce 9600 GSO Video Card - 768MB DDR2, PCI Express 2.0, Dual Link DVI, SLI Ready PVT96OSDFH in Canada at

The 9600GSO has DDR2 memory but there's no worrying about sending rebate. I know the 9800GTX+ is a better card but like I said it will be used for just folding, no gaming. What do you think?

BTW, I usually never buy from Tiger Direct but that seems like good prices.
