I have read that the new 196 WHQL drivers are quite good for folding, but I'm a if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it kinda guy.
The 196 drivers might be good for folding, but they broke a lot of the OC programs.

Switch to the later 190+ drivers and you won't turn back. You'll free up 2 CPU cores on your 2 9800GTX+ letting you run 4 core VMware folding with the linuxrouter image. That's a huge boost in PPD.

I think you are confusing me with sswilson, right now they only use 3-5% of the cpu I'm not sure how that would free up 2 cores.

Right now the Win SMP it's running across 4 cores makes it easier to switch over to Boinc when I want to, it'll be switched over to a VM once I reach certain milestones I'm after in various projects...
