because its cheap. Because its my system and I can build and rebuild it any dang way I wish. And because I really hate having open slots with nothing in them.
And I probably am going to get the extra memory just to have it. I have not a clue what I can do to use 16GB but its there if necessary, right?
16GB is good for stuff like virtual machines and stuff that eat RAM, I don't know if you use VMs or not though? Anyway, it's there if you need it as you said.
And I will probably do a VM of React OS and A few Linuxes to see what I can find to Play nice with AMD cards and finish updating the guide. So at most maybe 8GB of RAM to that, leaving 12 for other things.
Yeah if you wanna do virtual machines, 16GB is the way forward. I have 16GB of RAM for that reason.
CAN IT WITH THE CHEESE.
And it is not just you. I have about had it with the stupid questions and bad advice around here. Its getting real dang old real dang quick.
If you are trying to help, then try actually saying something helpful instead of asking questions that were already answered on page 1.
As said FAH is folding at Home. Not using it for bitcoins, mining is useless if you want to do it yourself. CF6990s would own everything and still net you very little yourself.
the 480 is 38% better at Memory bandwidth and 28% better at pixel rate (resolution filling basically) the 560ti is 47% less power hungry and 38% better at texture filtering. I am mainly looking to fold on it, so none of this helps me. I think the 480 would be stronger at that because of more cores. But just guessing.anandtech is down right now so i can't get numbers for the gpus, but i'd think a 560ti wouldn't be far behind a 480 since the 560 beats the 470, and a 560ti would be easier to get a second of in a year or so to sli with, which is why i'd think about taking it, but the higher vram and better performance i think the 480 would have would make me want it. tough choice but i think 480 might be the better.
OK then well grab a 460 or a 470 for folding on the FAH machine and then a 480 for your CM build.wolfeking said:If I get a card in July, it will be for folding only. I do not think it is worth it to stay on the low end if I can get something bigger.
