No, the 450 used a 10632 (611 point) WU. The results SKYMTL just posted a screen cap for are for what used to be a -advmethods WU (I get 14.5 - 15.3K PPD for that range of WUs with my oc'd 450).

Honestly, I wouldn't buy this card, but I wouldn't buy a 5550 or 5570 either. The fact that the 5550 (which costs $45-48 A0R) puts up a commendable fight with this is card is a tad disappointing.........It seems to do good in folding though.
What's the lowest level or grade DDR5 card? Is it the HD 5670? There are HD5570 DDR5 cards but not released in North America yet?

GT 430 blows. I don't want to pay 80 for card not being able to play any games........only for HD decoding/ bitstream

Better get a second hand 9800GT/ HD 4850 if you have tight budget

MSI 450 on sale for 109.99 is a much better buy then all of those imo. But I'm a nVidia Fanboi, so I'm overly biased.

All your reviews aren't displaying correctly on my iPhone touch. It only shows a paragraph of text.
I don't think your reviews have flash in them so it should be able to display everything.
