Hiya Fellas. I hope you all are having a nice weekend. I'm thinking about tossing the 4870X2 (That I got from Cv) into my bone stock AMD Quad HP desktop at home. It has 1 open PCIE slot on the motherboard. I would imagine that a single slot SHOULD run at 16X. At a quick glance, it looks like it should fit. Do you think it's worth it? I don't game. This would be for extra folding power only. I'd have to change out the PSU for sure, so I'll be posting a WTB topic over the weekend, IF I find out that that monster X2 will fit.

Thanks!!

Mark
I forget what's in this thing, but it runs perfect!!

Probably not worth the effort Mark. The 4870's are not supported anymore. There are no wu's available for them. I have 2 4870x2's collecting dust because they wont fold anymore.

Nah. Even if they were still supported, you would have gotten quite low PPD per watt out of it.

For GPU folding you should go with AMD 7000-series and higher, Nvidia 600-series and higher if you want to get decent PPD per watt.
