Looks like I'm going to have to get my new folding rig going a little sooner than planned. I did manage to pick up some parts last weekend, now i just need a few technicalities like a MB, PSU, CPU, memory etc...
Hmmm... me smells a few 8800GTs...

A little better than those, but not as good as yours...My bank dosn't have online banking and I don't have a credit card, so did a quick visit to FS...wish I could have afforded the GTX 260's, maybe next time...

Oh. 9800GTs then. Still a very good choice. I'd be interested to know the ppd those 260s can pump though...

Those 5504's are great, worth an easy 200+ PPD over say an 5506, wish we got them more often.

Getting close to 6000 PPD on a 8800gt is awsome, My 9800gtx only does around 6200 PPD even on a 5504...
Time to bump the clocks again I guess...

From what I've read elsewhere GTX260's are good for around 6800-7200 PPD depending on OC...

Went into FS intending on getting a 9800GTX+, and walked out with Twins...
The 179.99 deal was too good to resist, they are BFG's, so lifetime warranty plus step up program and pre-overclocked to 760/1890/2250 from 738/1836/2200...

Now i'll just have to figure out the multi-GPU client...
