So you can add another card at a later date for more PPD's!
I'm just gonna swap out my 9500GT for a GTX 460 and stick the 9500GT in my second machine.
I'll catch you up!
That's what I was thinking, but I forsee trouble with the second slot running at x4.
LOL, Good luck catching up. I'm running six clients atm, and I still have yet to install it on the HTPC at my dad's house. So that makes another three clients (one on each GPU plus the CPU) and the two I will get from the folding rig whenever that gets done.

Nope. It needs very little for GPU folding, but you will have trouble with the larger CPU work units without lots of RAM.
EDIT: I just bought supplies. I ended up going with the D955XCS, a Pentium 4 HT 521, 2 256MB DDR2 DIMMS, and some chinese 775 cooler. I am going to throw in a 20GB PATA HDD, a bestec PSU, and my old 8800 GS. Not bad for $40.
EDIT2: Just found a 120GB 7200.7. Even better.
