Which doing so will create a very tight race for the #1 spot...

Well guys , you race for now.
I had plans to turn my Main into a Monster this Tax season....

But well, I have plans for it now.
Charlie, months back you were right.
Folding is addictive.


Should be getting back $2200 if I did my math right from last year (I get a lot of Extra taken off from both jobs).

So,
Genuine GeForce 9800 GX2 Video Card - 1GB DDR3, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDMI 900107900000001H in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

I was thinking of mating that with a Asus AM2+ Board, and AMD Phenom II 940.

Might take me a while, but I'd love to contest that #1 spot :)

Ugh!

Don't pay that kind of money for that card! You'd be better off spending a bit more and grabbing a 295!

The best thing is to find a used one, I think.

ST, I learned the hard way... and I must concur and second Jack's recommendation: go for the 295.

Ahhhh okay.
I was only using that Picture for a Referance (I really need to state that when I make posts).

This is the best Computer Game ever.
All I have to make sure of is I have reliable Hardware, and my computer does the rest.
:)

Dammit...now I'm hooked.
And all I see is PPD graphs bouncing in my head.

295 it is....Single or Dual Config?

The 295 is a duel config card, should be good for more than 15,000 ppd depending on WU's. Not to mention it will run cooler and quieter than the GX2. Just make sure you get a beefy PSU, that way if you need another fix you can add another one...

Sure there is LCB,

Step:

1) Log onto HWC
2) Post Idea in New Builds
3) Search For Parts Online
4) Re-design Original Build Idea
5) Drink Some Coffee
6) Order Parts
7) Wait Paitently for Part to Arrive
8) Put Rig Together
9) Benchmark Rig and Test all Parts
10) Post Sexy Rig Pictures in HWC Gallery
11) Load Folding Programs
12) FOLD !!!! FOLD!!!!!! FOOOOOOOOOOOLDDDDDDDD!!!!!

Oh wait... you ment to stop Folding....why would anyone want to do that!

PS. Was just checking out the Decathlon Series from SS , might give my Ultra X3 a run for its money.
Decisions....
