Default Folding hardware question

Hello HWC,

I just have a quick question about folding. A friend of mine as 2 GTX 460's that he is looking to sell me cheap. I run my server all the time but it current is using onboard graphics and a G530. Would it be worth it to pick up the GTX 460s and fold with them on the side?

Thanks
Tech

I've got a couple of MSI GTX460 Cyclones running at 900Mhz folding 24/7 (or trying to!), and I estimate that I get 35k - 45k ppd combined out of them, depending on the WU of course. However, I will say this; according to me, any contribution to science is worth it.

Yes, they are great little folders, especially if you can get them cheap.
