  1. Well as the title states, the Nvidia client for Folding @ Home is finally available. To be able to fold on your Nvivia GPU you must have a CUDA capapble GPU (8 series, 9 series and the new GTX 260's or GTX 280's) I just downloaded it about 10 minutes ago and am Running it on my 8800GTS (640MB) it seems like it will be folding a lot faster than my Core 2 (E6300 @ 2.4GHz)

    Anyone interested in it can download it from here

    And anyone that needs a team to fold for can fold for my team (The Skitzo_Zac Corporation) :p Team Number: 114151

    Cheers Larryiam. The more the merrier, The team will be in the no.1 spot one day, at the moment i think its in the 18 thousandth spot or so.

    I see acording to your system specs here on TS that you aren't running an Nvidia GPU, so you just going for CPU folding then?
