Default 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.

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.

Folding Tools - All you need is here

High Performance Clients - Windows XP/2003/Vista/W7 GPU System tray client.

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)

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