again to be sure, so 9gb is needed for folding + ramdrive?

but i can still do bigadv without ramdrive right?

quesque je ferai sen charlie pour réponde a tout mes question stupide sur le folding
No, you need a minimum of 6gb per rig for folding the bigadv + ramdrive. You sure can fold without ramdrive too.
Et tu reussirais quand meme, sans moi.

My System Specs


If you decide against the bigadv, and decide to do vmware cpu folding.......

What I do with a quad (I prefer leaving 1 core open, even with nvidia cards.... I've seen as high as 15% with 4 cards, and it leaves some room for other PC functions) is fold a 2 core vmware smp, and then dedicate the 3'rd core to rosetta with boinc.

2. Vmware Notfred can fold on 2 cores, or 4 cores if I'm not mistaken.
1. Using the environment variables outlined here will significantly reduce the CPU usage of the ATI GPU client allowing CPU folding to be run across all cores: Folding Forum • View topic - Environmental Variables for the developing drivers

2. notfred's can run on up to 8 cores (a limitation of VMWare), including three. All that you need to do is edit the numvcpus variable in the .vmx file using a plain-text editor like Notepad.
