Don't forget to put a good fan everyplace the case allows. If it doesn't have one blowing in on the GPU, mod one in.

Seven, you're out of luck on the 9800. It isn't going to be supported.

An X1900XT card uses about 120 watts at full load in 3D mode, so it's a little more than an AMD CPU and a little less than an Intel CPU.

ChasR: Damn. Time to buy a new rig, muahaha.

I really do like Nikh's rig, although I do have an idea of my own for a gigantic Lian-Li or Silverstone tower case.

I just need to get my funds together and build a monster.

Talking about a fair investment in vid cards. Think I will hang out, watch, listen and learn. Then decide what I shall do.

So what's the absolute dirt-cheapest card I can get for gpu folding? Many months ago I was hoping to fold on my 7600gt but since that's not going to happen, this is a great excuse for an upgrade. But if I can find some cards for cheap enough, I'll just farm the hell out of 'em
