DUAL 333PII for folding?


Do you guys think it is worth it for me to setup up my spare Dual 333 PII for folding, or do you think it will be too slow?

It'll be slow, but it will fold fine. I ran a dual PII 350 for a while until upgrading it to PIII 500s.

Really your call.

Hehe, funny you should mention that....

I nabbed a dual PII board off eBay last week for $11 (one of those times where I bid before really thinking about what I was doing) and Mr. B is sending me a pair of PII 300's for it. Mine will be folding...

My general thought is that a single PII 300 would probably be too slow to fold considering the power costs, but a dual system would do twice the points with a negligible difference in power consumption.

Mine will also be going out in my living room where it'll be noticeably quieter than my TBird system.
