    You need to come over to the dark side.

    Most current AMD chipsets have PCIe lanes aplenty. And what with Intel lacking always puzzled me.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - G.Skill RAM Configurator for your boardSamsung Memory for your boardLatest AMD Chipset Drivers/WindowsLatest AMD Graphics Drivers/WindowsLatest Intel Drivers

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    ... parsec, I am your father... Nooooooo!!

    I thought Intel was the dark side

    That is a good point that you don't hear many complaints about, not sure why, but then I'm not a big gamer... gasp!!

    Might be that PCIe 3.0 makes up for that, which AMD will have soon. There's also a new AMD board in the works with that PLX chip with 48 PCIe 2.0 lanes. The configuration remains to be seen.

    I thought that nvidia cards can be used solely for folding at home.... eg: onboard is primary and nvidia is secondary. Technically i suppose the videocard would still be an "output" but idle. don't connect a monitor and i believe windows wont go into "multi" mode.

    I haven't tried it here, but i'm totally sure I read somewhere people doing just that.

    Onboard probably wont work for folding as onboard does not contain the the right hardware accelerators and/or the code api to take advantage for speed ups.
    not like the add-in high end cards, that is.

    I would assume the same would be true for AMD.. but i'm soooo not an AMD guy and wouldn't have a clue if it would work or not for folding.
