Well, I pulled the trigger on a EVGA GTX 980 Ti, it will go in 1 of my 4P's. As 1080's become more plentiful, I'll get 1 for my Win 10 PC. That should do it for me, I'm not going to try and out do anyone, just be in the top 20 :thup:

Good job. I pulled the trigger too early and sold my 980 a few weeks ago. I assumed prices would plummet and that 1080s and 1070s would be plentiful. Wrong on both accounts. So while I got a good price for my 980 I'm now sitting here with a lone 970, waiting for availability. Kind of irks me that Nvidia isn't doing a better job on supply. Not sure if they can't get yield on the processors or if there's another supply problem. Waiting to see what the new AMD cards do. I doubt they'll be competitive on price to points or power/heat to points, but we'll see.

Now for the $60,000 dollar question: When I get the card (this fri or sat) do I need to install any other software to fold with V7 7.4.4 Ubuntu, or just drop it in and setup slot for it?

if you have a very late driver you should be plug and play, with a system reboot to let it pick up the card, that depends on what you had in the rig before.

I have NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.96.run & NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-367.27.run but can't install it, what drivers are on the 4P now, are the default drivers that linux installed.



edit: NM, I found out how to install 340.96 so now my 980 should just drop in and off I go :thup: <-scratch that, it does not complete the install and it's stuck on X.org for the GPU driver :bang head

Change of plan, the 980 will be going in my Win 10 PC and the 4P will stay as is, can't get that big grASS card to fit :rofl:

Awesome. I am loving how my MSI 980ti GE is running. Although the 1070 usually beats the 980ti in games, It looks like the 980ti has a slight edge in folding.
Excited to join the top 20 as well, but starting tomorrow, I will be shutting down for 2 weeks or so. I am doing a big move and taking vacation en route.

I got the 980 going in my Win 10 PC and getting about 500k ppd on it with TPF of 40 sec +/- 2 sec. I did have to install 7.4.4 to get it going, I was using 7.1.52 but it don't support the 980 :thup:

now them's some numbers......

And it's not even OC'ed, it's as is from the box, installed the drivers, 7.4.4 and Precision X was already installed :)
Can't wait to get a GTX 1080 SC and see what it does :comp:

p.s. don't forget I have 1 4P still running doing 105k ppd +/- 1k.

It's amazing how this 980 card gets almost as many points as my 2 4P's did before they changed the points for A5 WU's, sad that after all that $$$ spent, those 4P's are now nothing but a boat anchor :rofl:

If it had more useful PCIe slots than the one, I'd snagged it in an instant when you were trying to sell it. There's plenty of awesome things a 4P machine can do.
