Yeah been looking 250s it just that I'm trying for two GPUs(if I can get the #@*%# XFX 750a SLI to work) not in SLI but for folding. Shooting for 100 - 150 max for both so have been doing the ebay thing. Would like 2 x 8800GTS 512s for shaders, size, and rear exhaust coolers.
Why F@H?? Click me! As of 07/28/11 Oz1a v2.0 >> XFX MDA72P7509 750a, PI X2 8870BE, 2 x XFX GTS250, WD 250GB, F2-8500CL5D-2GBPK, Tt TR2 600W, XP Pro SP3
I don't think you 'll be needing 1GB for GPU-Folding soon. I 've not seen any warnings for people with cards with lower amounts of memory and it 's not as if you can run more than 1 Client on a GPU card (like in the multi-core CPU systems)
Another bonus point of the GTS250 against 2x 8800GTS is the power consumption; the later the chip family, the lower the power consumption per point and a lot less heat to be disposed off !
