We are all folding for the same cause, what team you are on makes no difference other than for bragging rights.
Absolutely, sorry if I offended you or anyone with that remark, sometimes my sense of humour gets the best of me...

9800 GX2 is the best PPD per dollar, so consider that as well.

No, dont consider that. People need to stop buying GX2's, the market is flooded with folders willing to pay too much for them. I got 1 for $150 but cant find any deals worth while buying to fill my other 4 PCI-E slots.... So everyone stop buying them until I can get a few. :bleh:

What sort of farm are you planing there anyway, and how soon do I need to start thinking about an upgrade to stay ahead of you...:blarg:

I got a gx2 for the file server which was previously running on an old 7300 pci video card, didnt get it setup before I left town for work. Current ppd from this box wich is on all the time anyways serving media/storage for the whole house is 145ppd, so a gx2 would be better use then the cpu client on it (P4d [email protected])

Have everything but the gpu's ready for my 4x9800gx2 rig, I just cant bring myself to spend upwards of 250us per card. Had a line on brand new old stock (the BFG Black edition) for $262us/ea but they only accept wire transfer "ding ding" "red flag"

Best case scenario in a few months I could be doing 80k ppd

Well that should make things a little more entertaining, the PPD will give the Team a nice boost. That's a nice step-up program for your server, can't wait to see it going, ...:thumb:
