Sorry, I've been quite busy with work, moving around, etc. I stopped folding because F@H was doubling my power bill among other things.
So now I think I've settled down I can resume folding. I have a gaming laptop that doesn't really get any use, so I will probably start with that. I had a decent GPU as well, so I can probably use that as well. Next, when I return to the US, I will start my Mac Pro back up for folding. It should have no issues doing bigadv units and had been doing in the past. Alternatively I may built another dedicated folder using AMD processors since the Opterons seem quite cheap these days.
I have not really kept up with parts these days as I use mostly Macs now (except my gaming and work laptop).
What's the performance delta between AMD [Opteron] and Intel [Xeon] processors these days in multi-socket configurations? I'm eyeing the Ivy Bridge EP processors and numbers looks really good on them, but they are also very expensive.
Anyways I look forward to contributing again and hopefully we can get back to overtaking folks.
