    A GTX260 core216 should give around 6000-7000PPD, the number of WU's is dependant on what core is running at the time, some will take a bit over 1hour some more than 5.
    You might get more WU's done with ATI but you get more PPD with NVidia.

    that would mean that ATI cards are being given WU worth less ppd than nVidia cards.....if one is getting more WU and the other more PPD.... it's my understanding that WU are worth various PPD. I've been running Core 11 for the last 4 days on GPU...Core 78 on CPU.

    Yes it does seem that you get better PPD for going with the green team.
    Personaly I would like to see all WU's given the same PPD or no PPD and just have team ranking calculated on the number of WU's completed. (The PPD difference is the main reason for me changing to the GTX275 from my HD4870 1gig + HD4870 512Mb, I now get more PPD with just the one card).

    Well im starting to fold again, stopped for ages. I have installed the CPU client on my work pc which is on 24/7 so should do some good but it seems incredibly slow. It has a Intel e6750 @2.66ghz and has spent the last 12 hours on 1 "core". FAHMON says its got 3days to go as well. Its a "Gromacs 33" if that makes a difference.

    My GTX280 at home is crunching through them at home at 1200ips though.

    Instal FAHMon to get a better idea of speed and Points Per Pay (PPD).
    Welcome back to the Fold..

    Well, the idea of replacing my HD4850 with a GTX260 will have to be put on hold for a while. My HD4850 got flaky lastnight and is in the process of being replaced by a GTS250...which will have to hold me over until GT300 comes out. So, what PPD should a 9800GTX+ get? lol

    About 6000PPD.

    Well, that's better than the 2100PPD that Fahman claimed for my 4850. Even after returning my 4850 to all stock settings...there's intermittent screen tearing and graphical distortions.

    if a GTS250 can get 6000....then 7000 from a GTX280 would be extremely low.....but, it would vary slightly based on processor power...since the processor has to feed the graphics card.

    My GTX275 will show 6000-8000PPD dependant on which WU it is running.
    (8000-375 point wu, 6000-511 wu then in between for most of the rest).
    As the GTX275 and GTX280 both have 240 shadders but different clock speeds the 7000PPD does sound about right.

    My GTS250 was showing roughly 4000 PPD in Fahmon lastnight before Win7 decided to restart itself claiming a "processor error" occurred. I have yet to get F@H GPU to run in Vista since the vid card swap.

    Did you delete the work folder from your old instal in your user account for vista?

    Nope, I had to reinstall Vista....so, once I get everything setup again, I'll get back to folding.

    Hope it all works ok for you in Vista this time.
    (Just added a second GTX275 to my rig so folding is good now approx 12000-16000PPD) :)
    Look out 89Mustang lol.

    Still having some issues. It keeps stalling for some reason. I'm currently looking into that problem. I believe it's a hardware issue, but I'll know more after I get a chance to change a few settings. It only happens when my system is idle so it may be an issue with the power options. Also having issues with my fan profiles. I made a profile to increase the GPU fan to 80% when the GPU exceeds 60C, and reduce back to 50% if the temp drops below 54C. But for some reason it's not working properly. Thinking that may be a power settings issue as well. 72C while folding worries me since I leave my computer on running F@H when I'm not here.

    72C I should be so lucky, my 275,'s run at 85+ when folding. Does not helpthat the cooler on the palit card dumps alot of it's heat into the case and not out the back as with the referance cooler.

    I left it folding all day....appeared to be in the 50's when I got home. Now if I can just get my fan profiles to work.... I had to manually set the fan to 80% using eVGA Precision since I can't get nVProfiles to work at all.
