NV 580 boxen.
Quick question .

I have a tertiary folding rig ;

AMD Athlon 64 (Family 15,Model 47 , stepping 0) 2.0 Ghz on an Asus A8N-e mobo , 1 GB ram.(win XP)

It is currently running my 8800GTX for folding 24/7.

As a pure folding box , can I just drop a 580 in there ?......Its cpu bottleneck I'm thinking of , but I assume it's not an issue with folding ?

I don't see a problem with it. I don't think PCIe bandwidth is going to be a concern. Nor should the CPU bottleneck be either.

I say do it.

It wouldn't be an A8NSLI-E Deluxe would it? I miss those boards...

Onto the question , you will be just fine.

Even if all you had was that and a 4X slot you would lose at most 1% or so. So do it.

Awesome , I just wanted to triple check , it's a 'pci-e was new' mobo etc , ...

I think I'll just giver.


edit ; It might be ST , I can't see the full lable.I'll look when I redo it.

if the board shows video at boot youre most probably ok afterwards.

anyone asked about the psu? *points finger at st :D

BrainEater August 1, 2011 12:41 PM

PSU is fine.


So in recognition of our team's 1 billion points , I pulled the trigger on the 580 , I'll be setting it up later today.

What's the best folding drivers for the 580 ?
