    9600GSO use be PPD champs not the 512MB versions though the 384 or 768MB those with 96SP.

    old 8800gt or 9800gt work well 5000-6000 ppd.

    MikeMK: you may want to reconsider your options base on this:

    GPUs: the new GPU3 BETA Client gives a significant drop in PPD across all boards other then Fermi. This may change in the future but thought that you should know. My GTX 260 SOC took roughly 2K drop with FAHCore_15 WUs. The current FAHCore_11 WUs are the only ones available, there won't be any new ones (except the ones in the pipelines) PG gives a 3-6 months time frame but it ultimately depends on how fast the WUs are being processed. ATI GPUs so far haven't changed PPD wise that is.

    CPU: You may what to read this thread if you want a detailed insight: (http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=14911) a short version is that the current SMP2 WUs are mostly 6701 which reduces your PPD. Now this may change with an updated a3 Core or not, we can only wait and see. (Linux has seen up to 15% increase in PPD with the new a3 Core)

    hi everyone, just thought i'd say g'day.

    i've been running two gts260s on a folding rig, and at the moment i'm running one on gpu2 and the other on gpu3.

    there hasn't been any real drop in points on the one running gpu3.

    the ppds seem to change more based on the wu they're folding.
    at best on the gpu2 client i can get around 6500 ppd, but the wu its folding at the moment (P6600 450 points) it's only getting 5600 ppd, and iv'e seen it as low as 5200 ppd.

    and the one running the gpu3 client has so far constantly returned 5860 ppd.

    hope this helps.

    jack.

    Hi Jacko32, Currently you are number one on the top 20 Guru3D Team with an Average of 30000 PPD :supercool What Clients are you running? Also have you considered OC the GPU because I too have GTX 260 SOC and OC the Shader to 1508MHz which for P 6600 = Avg. Time / Frame : 00:00:55 - 7,069.09 PPD. GPU3 (FAHCore_15 WUs only) cause me a loss of roughly 1500 - 3000 PPD. Here is the results from HFM.NET:

    oops sorry, my mistake, i'm running gts250s

    i was really scratching my head trying to work out why you were getting such a high return.

    this is what i'm currently running
    pc 1 - 2 gpu clients on hd5870s + 1 smp client on i7-950 with '-smp 6' switch
    pc 2 - 2 gpu clients on gts250s ( thats 250:) ) + 1 smp client on e3200
    pc 3 - 1 gpu client on hd4890 + 1 smp client on e3300


    here's the stats on the gpu3 client

    hi k3v

    at the moment one is..

    Min. Time / Frame : 00:01:38 - 4,505 PPD
    Avg. Time / Frame : 00:01:39 - 4,460 PPD

    and the other is..

    Min. Time / Frame : 00:01:04 - 5,184 PPD
    Avg. Time / Frame : 00:01:05 - 5,104 PPD

    but these are on my main pc so they vary quite a bit and also get shutdown when i enable crossfire.

    basically very dissapointing.

    I have read that the latest Clients don't have problems with SLI or CrossfireX. You can leave them enabled but they won't use this feature.

    What’s going on? I was looking up video card reviews and found the F@H team. Sounds like a good idea for my home machine. So I need to get a stable rig going because I found out my laptop will not stay stable. It keeps terminating the jobs.

    welcome JarithOne your laptop probably does not like the heat any question you have ask away

    Welcome to the F@H Guru3D Team JarithOne,
    From what I have read, many people who choose to run F@H Clients on the laptop prefer to run the Classic Client and also invest in additional cooling.

    EDIT - running a GPU Client on a laptop GPU isn't really a good idea as they are slow and won't give you much points. It will also heat up your laptop much faster then running a Classic Client which relies on the CPU (it uses one core only). If you could give details on what type of system(s) you plan to run the F@H Clients, we can give you better advice.

    I gave up running any thing on my laptop. just too many issues.
    So I got the GPU2 client running on my wifes NVidia 260GTX (the over clocked one)

    so what would be better 2 GPU clients on my two 9800gt
    or
    SMP client running on my quad core 955intel?

    You can run the F@H GPU2 Client on your 9800 GT and also run the F@H SMP2 Client on your Quad Core. It depends on you. If you run the SMP2 Client, you might have to keep the system running 24/7 for you to finish before the Preferred deadline in order to get bonus points. If you use your system for CPU intensive applications, then you are better off running 4 instances of the Classic Client.

    I think that your CPU can run SMP2 WUs so you may want to try it. If you can finish the WU before the Preferred Deadline, it is perfect, however if you miss it, then you may want to consider using 3 instances of Classic Client.
    My Gigabyte GTX 260 Super Overclocked @ C = 702; M = 1053; S = 1512 give me:
    Min. Time / Frame : 00:00:58 - 8,744.28 PPD
    Avg. Time / Frame : 00:01:01 - 8,314.23 PPD

    Ok per PantherX i got the SMP2 up and processing. we will see if i can hit the dead lines for the WUs
    now should i continue to run the GPU client along with the SMP client?
    I read up on the forums and DownLoaded FHM.NET I can give you some stats in a hour or so. I hope you guys can help me tweak the system with some fresh data.
    I can tell I will need to put the two fans in her mid tower I was holding on to (read lazy here) but I can tell there is a bit more heat coming off the case now
