    I've decided it was time I helped the guru3d folding team... my computer spends so much time just on downloading I figured I would put it to some use.

    I'm using the geforce folding client however I can't help but feel that my output is very low for my system between 260/290 NS / Day. Ive been looking around and I noticed that 8800MGTS and 9600GT's were putting in a better effort that my GTX 260. Any ideas or am I just talking turkeys?

    Grab FahMon and find out your PPD rather than using the client to tell you.

    I've got Fahmon but I'm having trouble getting it to work. What do I do?

    Point it toward you FAH client folder.

    (Right click in the empty white area and click on 'add client').

    Nah, that takes a while to update. FahMon shows your current performance which is likely what the user is concerned about.

    Yeh, I just see screenshots with people who have GTX series cards who are pushing 600 ns / day yet I'm barely breaking 300.

    It can depend on work unit I suppose, tried other drivers?

    You still havent talked about your PPD..

    I can't get that program FAHMon to do anything. It just sits at 0%.

    Fahmon estimates your current performance, the extreme overclocking site uses real data from the Folding@Home website which is updated every 3 hours

    So? The user is talking about their current performance. Which micketh wants to use to work out if its folding at a suitable rate.
