The only thing I've not tried is re-installing the graphics driver.

The upside is, that I've now got a stable 24/7 CPU fold overclock @4ghz, and all 6gb of RAM on my board is showing (usually 1 channel of 2gb is shown missing) - points are now up to 21k ppd.

Still nothing. Graphics driver re-installed, no change.

How many others are running GTX 295's? If so, which client are you running?

Might hold some answers.

Also, try the latest client (7.2.9) as it now auto-updates it's GPU list (as you'll read in the above link).

Hope it helps you.

I'm going to to try an OS re-install to see if that fixes it. I've been having some issues with Windows updates on this machine for a while too, so I wouldn;t be surprised if somethign in the BASE os is corrupt. Besides, I've got a nice SSD sat going begging, so that would be reason enough for me

I'll be getting a GTX 660 into my rig soon, I shall PM you with an average PPD if you like.

Get that OS onto your SSD! You won't regret it one bit.

If your windows has been playing up then I wouldn't be surprised if that is the cause. I have my settings to inform me but not download or install updates, that way they won't interfere with any running applications (i.e. Folding).

Good luck with getting it working again.

Taffy, get an SSD. You can read all the reviews and numbers about how much better they are, but until you get one you've no idea how much better things are.

The 600 series don't perform as well as they should when folding, until the F@H cores get rewritten for the new architecture. So you could go for a 500 series card with the same budget, and perhaps get better PPD until the update is rolled out. Either of them will outclass your 275s.

SSD doesn't make much difference to folding, but it will make the machine more responsive in day-to-day use.

This doesn't mean they perform badly, my 650Ti is about the same PPD as a 460(768) but uses less power and stays 10degC cooler.
