Default Best video card for gpu folding

Just wondering what the best card for folding is. Is it the gtx 280 or 9800gx2? I would say the 4870x2 but ati seems to get crappy numbers. I want a new card for my folder ( p5nsli, e6600, 8600gt) but im not sure which i should get.

My System Specs

Default

My 8800GTS 320Mb did 4700ppd, oc'ed.
My GTX280 does 7975ppd, oc'ed.
A 9800GX2 can do ~10000ppd.
ATI? My 4870 can do ~2500ppd...

I have a second GTX280 for sale, if you're interesred.

If your looking for a card that produces the most PPD then the 9800GX2 is the card for you.
