Awesome! I'd love to see if these beat out the 260 I'm folding with in my wife's PC. Might switch to an SLi folding setup.

I can't wait. Of course now I'm wondering if I should have waited for my 460. I mean it is great, but considering possible price drops and then these? I could have maybe gotten two for SLI.

edit: Just remembered my board doesn't support SLI. So hopefully will be good with the 460.

you did try the driver thing right? :) you got nothing to lose. watch out under everest or nv control panel for 'supported' that's the first sign you are on the right path.

My GTS 260 216 died right after I finished the Folding test so it isn't in the game charts unfortunately.

Damn SKYMTL.... you've got absolutely no luck when it comes to GPU folding.... seems to me this isn't the first card of yours that's packed it in where the blame could reasonably be laid at the feet of the folding load.......

without going too much into off topic, for whatever reason sky here has terrible luck with cards in general, 5970 comes to mind as a prime exemple.

i hope the 450's did make it thru the tests :)

Dangit... if you were local I'd give you one to test with so I could see a comparison. Meh, should get a good idea anyway.

Just as well... the way I hear it, you'd have mine folded to death in the first couple hours anyway...
