Those puppies were built for clocking - mine is an OC2 variant from BFG.

Nvidia cards seem to do better at folding because of CUDA.

I might fire up an SMP client as well. I have a Q6600 overclocked @ 3.4Ghz.
It's a blast-from-the-past.... CLI config etc but a cinch to install thanks to the clear guide available on the F@H site. Be aware though that it uses "big" WUs as the default and mine is currently churning through 500k steps!
