Default GPU folding

since i see no one has looked at the folding thread.

I'll ask here. And im not sure if this is for Hardware or Software section..

but anyways..


is it possible to run GPU folding on my 4850 like i HAVE been doing.
and also on a separate PCI GPU?

or since its on a regular PCI bus type GPU, would it really even ad much more GPU folding performance?

I dont think that a PCI Card can run CUDA/OpenCL

Full acceleration, and compliance with powerful and demanding Direct3D games and OpenGLŪ games and applications.
my crappy 10 yr old GPU supports Open GL lol
so probably not CL

anyone know of a good/cheep PCI card that would work well?

This is the fastest:

But PCI cards will be bottlenecked...they can't do the full capacity AGP or PCI-E can do.
