ATI + NVIDIA help
 
Just got my 8800GS in, and of course I bought it for folding. Now, how the hell am I supposed to get it to fold on the NVIDIA card? What I've done so far is:
-Installed 191.07's, plugged my 17" LCD into the 8800GS
-Ran the PhysX hack, Windows and GPU see it, Batman: AA lets me use it for PhysX (quite nicely as well)
-Downloaded GPU2 client, installed
-Set up username, team, blah blah
-Set advanced parameters on client to "-gpu 2" since 0 and 1 are my 4870x2 cores
-Trying to launch the F@H client gives me the "At present your GPU is not supported or you need a current driver...etc etc blah blah"

Any help is appreciated, as I want to get some points back into the team since I've been out of the fold for a while.:thumb:

There's 2? :shok:
Are you talking about the systray and console versions? Or is there something different than GPU2?

-gpu 2 -forcegpu nvidia_g80

No, there is only GPU2. And there is no functional difference between the console and tray clients.

This is what you should try:

It's a G92 core according to GPU-z, but uhm, I'm an idiot and forgot I had a second PCIe slot in the S939 rig, which is currently running an NVIDIA card. I'm sure that would be MUCH easier. :ph34r:

Lp you confused me with you Encorp type Avatar, I tought he was quoting himself.

_dangtx_ February 26, 2010 12:05 PM
