its exactly on par with the 4870x2 when it comes to gaming.. folding.. its a whole different story.. but mostly because of the way the point system is setup between ATI and nvidia..

BTW, why the Gateway and not any other 30"? Value for the number of features?

it seemed to fall within about the right price range and i had previous good experience with there 24" model so i figured why not.

I considered the Gateway but chose the Dell when I decided my 2407 was too small. :)

Lemme know how your PPD look on the i720 if you run the SMP client. I'm currently getting 2000-2500 depending on the WU. The i720 is OCd to 3.2. It doesn't seem to be doing much better than my 9450@3.2...I just recently started running the SMP Windows clients.

getting the i7 really is gonna force me to try VM because the linux options are so much greater for smp then windows from what i can tell but i'll deff keep you up to date.

That is definitely true. The LinSMP client will give much more PPD, even when running in VMs. The problem is that you're limited to 2 cores per VM for the free version of VMWare, so you'll have to set up multiple VMs to really take advantage of your CPU's folding capabilities.

really that sucks:( i was thinking it would be awesome to get all the cores chugging along on 1 unit:D

You can, but you need to pay for a better version of the software. In any case, you'll probably get equivalent point output from multiple VMs. The only real downside is that it's more maintenance.
