GAH. Is the GPU supposed to make that noise? ;_;
I don't exist yet on the page. :<
3 WU's done today so far though.
With that said, I've never actually run the folding@home, just joined (Yes, you were correct Wries) Sweclockers.
I know that they've made Radeon-cards work with this now.
But how competetive have they become? Ie, I have my old thickly-overclocked GTX460 1GiB and my new modestly overclocked HD6970. Which would be most effective for computing in this? I'm actually assuming CUDA.
I will answer, don't worry :P Tried it myself when I was setting up the clients, AMD 6000 series isn't supported (yet), up untill 5000 series is however, but your GTX460 will be better in folding than any AMD GPU.
You can also use your PS3 for folding, there should be something on your menu called "Life with playstation"
Nice to see that Folding at Home has made it here.
I highly encourage people to participate in volunteer computing programs such as this.
I am a research student at working with the University of Delaware to create a game environment and community for Docking at Home, another volunteer computer program, out of a molecule visualization program called VMD. Our hope is to create an environment that will reach out and expand the diversity of our volunteers, as well as being adding human intuition to the parameters used in the simulations.
So I ask those of you who volunteer to Folding at Home, or are thinking about it: What about the concept of volunteer computing interests you? What more could be done to improve your experience? Do you have any suggestions or comments about the topic?
Note: Guess I'm not allowed to use the at sign yet, post count and all.
I mean, all I play atm is wow (and needforspeed-games) and all I ever do is arenas. Might as well save some electricity! (And on that note, an obvious step is folding, right? ;D)
I've joined teh team! Using GPU3 Systray client or something.
Have now setup two clients, one for each GTX 460. Pewpew! Gonna melt!
Though the "display" option seem very confusing to me. Only capable of showing progress of one of the GPU's work (regardless of which systray icon I choose display from) while I need to look in the log files in order to confirm that the other GPU isn't just chewing rubbish.

as much as I would love to I have to live on 60/gb a month and always cut it close every month
