Usually, you run multiple instances of the client that have been installed to different directories. It's a fairly interesting, yet somewhat complicated, install process.

How much power from the rest of the system is required for GPU folding?

Say, I wanted to run four 8800 GTS's (i don't, this is just theoretical), would a single core sempron 140 be enough with 1GB DDR3? or would I need more RAM, or the second core enabled?

Is it folding on the CPU as well, or just the GPU?

Looks like I will have to try to unlock that core.

It'll run on just about anything...

This guy is using the Athlon 64 5000+ in some of his machines:

Not the slowest cpu ever I know, but if his rig will run on that, your sempron should be ok.

Trying to get 430 FSB stable with my Q9550 is a PITA.

Folding away on my netbook....



What I meant was will the single core Sempron bottleneck the cards badly?

Well, I plan to eventually get four better folding cards, but for now, say four 8800 GTSs because I don't forsee myself having any more than that.

EDIT: How do I make the F@H client stay in terminal? I want to watch the progress.
