Hello folding gurus. The purpose of this thread would be to share knowledge of your current setup, what went well and what could be improved. Something like simple "guru3d folding database". I lurked some other forums to find answer on most efficient folding rig, however I ended up reading 2+ year old posts with older specs. Here I'd love to share my machine specs and what direction I'd love to go. And based on your shared knowledge, I'd love to improve my current folding rigs. Here's my specs: 1. gaming / folding rig - smp4 (specs under my avatar) (avg 14000 ppd) 2. dedicated folding machine - smp2 : core2duo 7200 @ 3.15Ghz (avg 2850ppd) 3. dedicated folding machine - smp2 : core2duo 8400 @ 3Ghz (avg 2800ppd) folding progress: http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_summary.php?s=&u=543476 Problem I see with mine system, is that I use 2 old CPUs with bad cost performance. I look into changing that. The question I face is, would it be better to go for GPU or CPU direction? Amd or Intel? Desktop or Server system? Right now I aim for around 50K ppd. Please share your specs, knowledge or any tips related to folding hardware. Looking forward for input. Thanks!
