I forgot to test gpu folding before I swapped out the ST60F.
(mainly because I don't gpu fold anymore as the ATI is so poor at it.)
Would have been nice to see those numbers though.

You could still get a good 3000-4000PPD out of your 5850. I would consider that to be worth it.

I found that if I was gpu folding with the ATI and I was running SMP clients on all cores, the ATI would only net 1000-1500ppd. If I left a core free, then the ATI would get ~ 3000, but the SMP would get more than the difference if I was using it for folding on that core too (not to mention less power required).
When I had a GTX 275 @ > 9000 ppd, now that was worth it.
anyway, that was my experince with an i5 750 as well as the 860.

If you follow the instructions in this post, that problem would be taken care of: A little assistance for a semi-noob, please!
