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
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 ?
