Except that they have to buy from the eVGA store and thus get ripped off. I have never seen the prices at their store go below MSRP, and you can always find incredible deals at Micro Center or Newegg.

The problem with that is every point we add to their team will make it harder for us to plan a comeback to overtake them again. Plus as I posted in response to W, we would be getting ripped off.

It is ok. The reverse also happens.

I folded 6 WUs for EVGA, now I fold for [H], over 500 WUs and over 500K points.

Good one Shane_D.

My 24-core Opteron box is coming back to compliment the SR-2 for further [h]orde domination.

Two boxes, 120 - 190K PPD with BigAdv.

Giggidy.

Sweet! I love that dual G34 system of yours. It is my dream system. Out of curiosity, what did you eventually end up going with to cool it? Last I heard, you were using those big copper heat sinks with custom mounted fans and you were having trouble with the cpus throttling due to heat.

I also think that you are right that Shane is playing mind games with us as I seriously doubt anyone here has been folding for eVGA. Except for Parja that is.

That's about 8,400 PPD to get the full 120 Evga bucks in a year!
There are a few members who have folded on both teams.

I dunno, a GTX 460 768mb for $169.99($160 after MIR) doesn't seem so bad to me. Especially considering I have $150 EVGA bucks saved up. That's 1000+PPD per dollar. But maybe when I buy it I'll be getting ripped off. :p But I am going to wait until after AMD launches 6xxx to see if prices drop more.

Cheers everybody! :)

LOL, they actually believe that other teams are the primary reason for our hard earned ramp up. That thread is exactly the reason I only read their forum when needs beckon it. Little are they aware of our history if they relegate this setback solely to contributions, however noble and esteemed, to external sources. A decade of folding behind our donations to the project has been reduced to "collusion" and secret pacts. Give me a break. :rolleyes:

Folding to earn EVGA bucks is not a worthwhile investment, as so many eVGA members are so quick to point out. It's only an incentive to gain new members to their team and retain old ones.

The dollars that you would spend folding to earn EVGA bucks would be better spent buying a GTX460 for $150.

So they can blame our ramp (which started weeks before we asked MPC to (VOLUNTEER) play along by the way...) to contributions from another forum.... But when anyone points out they are backed with 10s of thousands of dollars each year from a huge company.....

Hello Pot, this is the Kettle calling... got some news for you.. you might wanna sit down...

Unless you actually care about the science. You fold, helping the project, and then use the bucks you get to buy hardware to fold more. Win/win. :)

To me, folding is folding. I used to fold for another team (142600 IIRC, username Dewality). I was the only dedicated folder for a while, and eventually the website for that team practically died out. So when I heard about the bucks program I switched teams and haven't looked back. It'll be nice being able to double my PPD for just about nothing(I would be spending money on electricity folding either way, so that is a moot point). Maybe if I was a member of a team with other dedicated members I wouldn't have switched. Who knows. But either way, I'm folding to hopefully help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. :)

Vaulter, You're supposed to invoke the "Subliminal" button before posting stuff like this! Get it right next time, okay...? :D

lol who cares (disclaimer I do not collect evga bucks). In the end it spurs more competition and more hardware is added. If a Hard folder is collecting evga bucks too then it's their decision. We should just be happy they're folding for us too.

Sad thing is we can't do anything about it. I can't wait for the ads to start...
