My System Specs

Default Forceware 180.70 + SMP = Win

The new Forceware 180.70 does NOT require lots of CPU usage to fold anymore. I have my CPU usage set to 100% for GPU folding, and FahCore_11.exe uses around 5% of my CPU. This lets me run SMP on a dual core machine! Now as others said, the reason to make the switch to Vista is now gone.

It took a while to get SMP right, but I got it set up. It's running as a service as well, which is a major plus for me. FahMon says I should get 5300PPD if I fold 24/7. SMP takes just under 15 min to complete one percent.

Thought I'd pass this information to all other folders.
