Default Folding@home with WHS

Does any know if its possible/safe to run a GPU folding@home on a WHS? I am thinking about selling off my second rig to help pay for a couple of new Fermi's (whenever they are finally ready) and sticking my 9800GX2 in my WHS to folding with. Any thoughts?

Yeah I was running my overclocked 9800 Gx2 on my WHS. Sadly, my POS PSU crapped on me :) I was asking for it running it on an antec earthwatt.....

So has long has you have a good enough psu, go for it

Ps. Whs works on xp Nvidia drivers...

don't run anything but WHS and tested plug-ins on your WHS. It can cause your boot drive to think it's faulty and the only way to fix it is a reformat.

Trust me. I've done it like 3x before I found out about the bug.

I was running the DivX connected server and F@H at the time.

I run F@H cpu on my WHS. It's terrible because it's only 32 bit (with a dual core cpu.. )
I never tried installing a GPU client and putting a video card in - I figured it would break when you tried to load other drivers.
