Hopefully my 9800 GT from Alwaysrun will be put into the mix next week. I hope I can get it to play nice with my 285s. Otherwise I might have to look at a 260 or something!

Do any of you think that this might have something to do with the new WU's or drivers? (5900, 5902, 5903) I've checked GPU-Z for a bit and the amperage that goes through both the cards fluctuates like nuts! It jumps from 27.0A all the way to 39A and back..... Maybe these dual-cards don't like this??

I'll hope they fix yours quick though!

If you can't get the 9800gt to work nice with the 285's I would go for either a 280 or the new 275 that is coming soon to avoid the shader bug. Both of them have the same number of shaders as the 285/295's and should play nice together...

@B_A_ ; hope they fix that soon, it's gotta hurt...

Has anybody on here got a dual gpu card (GX2, 295) to fold for longer than a week? Starting to think those cards are not such a great idea???

Yeah... I do, a 9800GX2. I think all of us with those cards kinda know that they're like little kids(didn't someone say this already?): they need a lot of love and attention.

Since my re-install on the 3rd of March, they have been folding non-stop without issues. I just received the 5903 actually! Another 1680'er.
