I think I might try to set up VMware and Linux folding with my i7.

Supposedly you can get up to 9k out of an i7 by running 4 VMs! More to come when I figure this out!

I'm staying far away from Vmware. Too many issues last time I folded using it, and dual Linux instances.

Really? I tried to set it up when I had a Q6600 and it was a bit of a PITA, that's for sure.

Well, I'll give it a go and see what happens. If it fails, I'll move back to setting up double SMP (and I'm sure I'll be asking you for tips!)

Darnit I lost the link for the instruction to get 2 cards folding on the same machine. Could someone be so kind to link it. Much appreciated.

lol why can't I ever find a folding instructional how-to that shows what I see. I like pictures and none of this looks anywhere near like vista 64bit I have. I'll muddle through I guess. I may be stumped tho as I have no 2nd monitor or a "dummy" cord to work with here. plus I see problems with getting this 9800 gt jiving with my 260s 64bit drivers.. gahh I wish I could talk to someone on ventrillo or even irc would be a help. maybe I can use my laptop monitor as a 2nd monitor to help. *shrug

Thanks LCB for the link. :thumb:

I'm going to swing by The Source this afternoon to pick up some resistors.

Then soon I'll have all four GPUs folding :biggrin:
