The real trick behind my layout is the GPU client. I have: an ATI 3850, Nvidia 8800GTS, and two nvidia 9800GTX cards, all running the Folding@home client. I still need to go and install the CPU client in each of my systems though...


I think that this contest is rather cool, it gets people to Fold, and there is some rather nice ram involved as well ^_^

Fox, just fold with whatever you can, You should be able to make the limit. Every little bit helps.

And as usual, don't worry about me, I'm folding for other reasons so I won't be entering the contest. Wink
