    Lightbulb Cheap RAM (fold faster ??)

    Don' know if you guys have noticed, but the price of good quality RAM is falling faster than the NASDAQ.

    I just picked up 256 MB of RAM from Crucial for $90 delivered (133, CAS=2)

    go to crucial and take a look.

    the question is, will this help me fold faster ?? if nothing else at least i can leave the folding program running while I play Unreal...before adding the RAM it would slow down the game too much.

    Not sure if the ramwill helpmuch, the program takes zero priority asfar as i can tell so it lets everything else go first. Processor speed seems to be the biggy.
    Ive got a 450PIII 384 megs
    475 amdlaptop96 megs
    500 cel 128 megs
    500 cel 96 megs
    350 PII 128 megs.
    the lap is producing better now i formatted and put ME on, got rid of all the Compaq S**t. the 450 is a workhorse, doin a tonn of stuff as it folds, the 500 cels seem to do pretty good, but the 350 PII does not run all the time, i really notice a difference in my WU's when i remember to go up and turn it on when he is at school.
    But even with all this I do see the guys with the 800's and up really seem to bang out the numbers.

    Martiangod how long does it take your PII 350 to do a betahairpin? My PII 233 @300 does them in about 1h 26m. It only has 64mb of RAM.

    I dont pay that close attention to individual boxes,guess if i registered them all under different names i could keep track, but i do notice on the totals when its runnin. Always did like that PII. I really think intel got the math right in the 350 PII.
    And everyone i know who had a 350 seems to feel the same way, that it was kind of a milestone proccessor. Dont think i will get rid of that one for awhile yet.
