Shayan's New To Folding Thread
 
Hey folks,

These days, Iv been browsing around HWC's Folding section and I think I'm ready to give folding a shot, now that the weather is cooler, and I am done finishing up my system.

I absolutely have NO idea on how to fold, which is why I am doing this thread.
Also, I will be folding the the rig in my sig, and it isnt quite the powerful rig so could someone tell me how many PPd I could get with it, and if it would really make any significant difference whether I fold or not, to the team.

Thanks in advance.

Bud you have a very good cpu and a good folding gpu. You'll do good for sure.

i think you should be able to get over 6000 PPD with your graphics card; i have a GTX 280 OC,and it does an avg of around 6500-7000 PPD.

others will be able to answer the rest much better than me.

You'll probably get around 5000-6000PPD for your GPU alone (i have mine with slightly higher shaders clocked at 1525MHz and i get 6000-8000PPD depending on the work unit)

Start by installing the GPU systray client and Fahmon.

So when you're folding away, you'll want to keep an eye on your progress. See how many PPD you're getting in real-time. This you can do by downloading either one of the following two clients:

FahMon (Latest Version 2.3.99.1)

woah cool, 6000 PPD sounds good. I would like to fold with my gpu and cpu if that is possible? lol... Il download that, 3.0 Thanks for your responds, guys.

so whats the diff between vmware and fahmon? I installed both, and that system tray thing. Help pl0x.

BT! September 5, 2009 07:23 PM

use this guide to get your 9550 folding 2 instances of vmware, you'll probably see 4000ish ppd give or take a few hundred. :)

BT! September 5, 2009 07:24 PM

fahmon is a monitoring program to see your PC's ppd on everything your running.
