Nice deals, I've regretted thinking "I won't need more then 1 PCIE-16 slots" when I originally bought my MB. On a side note, how well does mixing same gen. diff cards work for folding, i.e. gtx 260 + gt 240?

Also, you got an extra http:// in there for the bottom link.

I do not think there is an issue, if you have dummy plugs you can use nearly any combination of cards for folding past 8800 series.

Just came here to post this. Good cards. XFX looks like a deal with transferable lifetime warranty, would be good folding card to sell for $40 in a year or two. Watch out though cause it's wider than a single slot.

forgot to add, stick with xp for folding :)

Is the difference that big when folding in xp vs win 7? I'd consider doing a duel boot if it was in the multiple hundreds range.

I dunno, I am folding in both (too cheap to upgrade my gpu folding box) and they both seem fine.

Nice little cards. They mix perfectly with just about any combination.
I've got a GT240 running side by side with my GTX275. No issues whatsoever.

What kind of numbers do these produce? I can probably fit 2 in addition to my 5850. (although one will only be x4)
