FWIW yall, it's for a good cause. If you leave your puter on when you're not using it why not lend it to medical research by folding? It won't hurt anything but will help in some way shape form or fashion, ESPECIALLY those high end GPU's.

If you don't have what you'd consider a powerful puter, that's ok, you can still do it.

Think about it like this, those who's lives were touched by the loss of a friend or loved one to some disease, cancer, you name it, by participating in folding, you'll be helping out w/ research towards finding a cure and it doesn't cost you a thing.

Was part of the maximum PC team. We should prolly make a DFWS team. To me this is more inline with humanity than [email protected] As it can help with immediate results to save lives.

Absolutely! I honestly have no clue about how to make a team but if you're interested in joining the pcpitstop team, come on! We'll take all teh help we can get. Right now were ranked #90 out of 1mill. I believe.

To add some sweetener to this, PNY is putting on a contest for [email protected](Folding @ Home) w/ 2 first place prizes, 2 second place....

Here's the details.

http://portal.xlr8gaming.net/forum/v...340345a5d22068

Hi Guys,

Here is the prize list for the [email protected] contest:

Winners for running the program the longest will receive:
1st place = 9800GTX+ 512mb
2nd place = 9800GT 1GB

Winners for the highest point count will get:
1st place = 9800GTX+ 512mb
2nd place = 9800GT 1GB

There will be prizes given out daily which includes PNY video cards, memory kits and USB storage drives. So even if you aren't the top dog in each category there is still other great prizes to be won.

It's something to consider, I have 2-3 spare machines to run it on. None of them are high horsepower, but not too terrible old either.

Come on over, the more the merrier! If you haven't ever been on forums.pcpitstop.com, they're prolly the nicest group of ppl I've met forum wise. I have to remind myself that it's not DFW when I'm over there.

FWIW, there's quite a few extremely knowledgeable folks over there as well.

I did not realize they had GPU clients out, gonna figure that out soon and see how it works.
