  1. Hello,

    It would be plenty fine. I wouldn't bother buying anything else for it if all your doing is using F@H with it.

    One thing, f@h does heat things up. Take a few mins to blow the dust off the CPU heatsink. Download an use a tool like HWMONITOR from CPUID (makers of cpuz) to record current and max temps.

    You video card support openCL so it will proably run a folding client. See if you can fold on both the CPU and GPU. (ditto temp thoughts)
  3. Hey,

    Thanks for the tips, when it's all up and running i will try that.


    Thanks
