Heh... I can't really justify it with my 22" monitor, and the amount/type of gaming I do. I'm not going to go out and buy a vid card just for the sake of getting a few more PPD.

OTOH..... I've got a couple of parts coming up for trade in the near future.... maybe somebody will trade with me for an older 8800 or something similar.

My System Specs

Default

As the sig says I have an E8400 OC to 3.6 GHz but I am folding on the GTX 295 right now with the setting at about 80% GPU usage. I followed the directions on the F@H website, created the second folder and then disabled the SLI in the NVidia control panel after I hooked up a second monitor. I am using the beta 185.65 drivers in Windows Vista x64 and FAHSpy says I should be getting 13000 ppd with just the GPUs folding. I set up some fan profiles in RivaTuner and right now the cores are 70/73 with the fan cycling between 70% and 80% as core 1 hits 71C. A tad annoying to say the least!

I get some lag while browsing the net using Firefox but I plan on leaving it folding overnight to see how it goes... the temps are pretty solid at 70/73 though as I have been folding for an hour or so now.

It is a pain in the arse disabling SLI, setting up a second monitor and all the rig-a-marole to get this going, but I have to see what I can crank out :)

Great to see you back Folding Dwayne.

Those 295's are PPD monsters, up the charts you go...

Thanks! I have a feeling that after the 2 GPU experiment I will go back to SLI and 1 GPU folding as the 2nd monitor takes up a lot of space on my desk. I may look into the idea of making the dongle though, but I guess any folding helps.

Definitely go for the dongle - dummy plug. I have done 2, takes 30 seconds to do.

I am going to see if my local The Source still has any actual electronic components left. If so, I hope they have the resistors and I will make one and then let the machine fold overnight and work days and back to SLI for evening gaming. It will not be a real pain if it works out!
