No dummy plug needed

Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone who was looking into folding on multiple GPUs on the same computer. You don't need a dummy plug, at least I didn't using Windows 7. I did hook up a second monitor to each video card when I started the clients. Unplugged the monitor. Every client starts with no problem. Even switches to SLI and back for gaming. I don't know if this has been posted yet.


End of line

v258.xx drivers seem to resolve the dummy plug issue for all OSes, as reported on the folding forum by Leonardo.

That's good to know... I just updated some drivers last weekend and I just stuck with my dummy plugs, etc. Will have to try without them.

Thanks Twig!!!
