Nice one man. Very nice
So yesterday I finally got everything installed and running with the 2x GTX 275. Each one is getting 9,800 PPD which is still slightly less than the GX2's that I had which cranked out 11,000+ PPD each, but oh well. Games on the other hand run much better with these cards than the GX2's mostly because of the heavily increased memory size of 1792 MB, so I think I can take the loss for some gain even though I do fold more often than game. I'm also using ~100 watts less power with this setup!
My GTX275 bounces between 7500PPD and 9500PPD. I just picked up a GT220 to add to the fun....but only because I'm limited by my PSU, which will just barely handle the GTX275 + GT220, as long as I don't OC... Been sitting at about 625watts (total system draw under 100% load), so with the GT220 I should be around roughly 685watts give or take a few watts....hopefully I don't cause a brown out...lord knows the power company here is struggling to keep everyone powered.
Wow, your comp uses a lot of power for what you have! That's about as much as mine did with two GX2's (quad SLI). Currently mine runs at 500W while folding on both GPU's and CPU (2x SMP), with the monitor on. You must have a lot of accessories! I have both my 275's overclocked stably so they RARELY dip to 9,000 PPD, I'm pretty happy with that performance! Christmas is almost here, did you ask for a new PSU?!
