Why would one card be better if running F@H then the other card?
Modern ATI and nVidia GPUs can be used for running Folding@Home, however different cards are able to process work at different speeds. Although the 5770 is a faster card than the 9800GTX+ when it comes to gaming, as far as folding goes, the 9800GTX+ is actually considerably better.

Well, Tom's Hardware hasn't been a credible website for 7 years or so. I wouldn't bother with them or anyone who visits their forums.
