My System Specs

Default So what's a good bang for the buck folding GPU now?

I feel the need to fold more. I've got an X8 and an X4 PCI-E slot available. It(they) MUST play nice with Win7 and my HD 5850. Oh, and I've got only 1 6 pin and one 8 pin native PCI-E pwr connectors available (and a bazzzilion 4 pin molexes) I'm thinking GTX 460 768MB? But it needs 2x 6pin alone. $150 or less.

oh crap, I need single slot cooling for 2...
All's well that's Haswell

The GTX 460 you mentioned is a good one. Pretty sure the ones I bought came with molex->pci-e adapters.
