    Yeh it will help!! :)

    I'm also in the process of getting another folding rig together, bought a second hand 8800GT for folding only. Only need a cheap 775 motherboard now. Got everything else.
    Reason is because the ppd on my current rig is not good at all... :biggun:

    Why not run smp on your cpu and GPU3 on your GTX285, should give you 20,000ppd easy..

    i tried folding at office laptop and it reduced my system performance and system crashes occurred..not sure but probably i setup something wrong that time..at home iam afrading the same thing..but this thing(FOLDING) works when u r not using ur PC right?
    well i may give it a try again

    The thing is Using PS3 is just easy..plug and play...

    Well, you can trust me when I say that the SMP2 v6.30 Client is now very easy to configure and will work flawlessly (for 99.99% of the time) ;) As long as you follow this very easy guide, you should be up and running in <5 minutes. Of course, I am assuming that your home PC doesn't do any CPU intensive tasks like encoding, heavy gaming, etc. If that's the case, you will want to install 4 Classic Clients by following this guide. Do remember that the PPD for SMP2 will be significantly higher than 4 Classic Clients.

    For your GPU, I recommend that you either use the GPU2 Client OR the GPU3 BETA Client with -advmethods flag. I have written a guide that you can read to have a better understanding.

    Also if you have any questions/problems, feel free to ask us and hopefully, we can help you :nerd:

    ps3 = 1000ppd
    285 = 9000ppd - 10000ppd
    and a C2Q Q9650 should be around = 5500 if you overclcok to 4Ghz like me it can do around 11000ppd
