Already thinking about resurrecting my old Athlon X2 purely as a folding rig. We might get a few weeks work out of my 8800GT GPU before it finally croaks (and I can contact BFG about a warranty replacement!)
Haha, nice! I'm actually using a factory overclocked version of the 8800 GTS-512. Nvidia cards seem to do better at folding because of CUDA. That 8800 would be a great addition to the team.

I might fire up an SMP client as well. I have a Q6600 overclocked @ 3.4Ghz.
