GIGABYTE GeForce 9600 GT DirectX 10 GV-NX96T1GHP 1GB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • 1GB 256-Bit GDDR3
  • Core Clock 720MHz (Std 650)
  • 2 x DVI
  • 64 CUDA Cores
  • PCI Express 2.0 x16

Pros:

I bought this to run folding@home full time & quietly. It does better PPD than my 3870.

Cons:

Of course I put a fan on it. SCYTHE SY1425SL12L(140mm, 29CFM, 10.8dbA). But in the end I got a quiet folding setup.

Other Thoughts:

I strapped a 140MM fan to the side with fishing string. I had to leave the side of my case open, because it is old & does not have any case fans, just the power supply fan. When folding@home I get 52C & it loads my 6400+ @ ~60%(on 1 core). It produces ~3800PPD, which is better than my other PC(9950BE @ 3.1Ghz, 3870x2 @ 850 GPU & 950 MEM producing ~2500PPD @ 100% CPU).

3dmark06: SM2.0 = 4895 SM3.0 = 4633

None of my GPUs are OCed for the above results, only the OCing that the factory did. I don't believe in OCing GPUs for folding, because GPUs will continue to run even though it is producing errors(unlike CPUs, they lockup or reboot) & errors are not good for finding the cure for cancer or other diseases.
