My PC:
AMD Phenom II 965 BE 3.4 GHz (SMP 4 threads)
16 GB DDR3 1333 MHz
Geforce GTX 260 (GPU client)
Windows 7 Professional x64
(folds only during weekends / holidays)

Server 1:
Intel Atom D510 1.66 GHz (SMP 4 threads)
2 GB DDR2 800 MHz
Ubuntu Server x64
(runs 24/7)

Server 2:
Dual Xeon 3.2 GHz (SMP 4 threads)

I have several as well. These are all the PCs I have that have at least one client on them. All of them run 24/7.

My main PC (custom built, 2009):
  • Phenom II X4 940 3.0GHz (SMP client running on all 4 cores)
  • 3GB RAM
  • nVidia GTS450 (GPU client running)
  • Windows XP SP3

Server #1 (an old Gateway PC from 2002):
  • Pentium 4 2.0GHz, non-hyperthreading (uniprocessor client running)
  • 1GB RAM
  • Windows Server 2003 Enterprise
  • File server

Server #2 (an eMachines PC from 2006):
  • Athlon 64 3.0GHz, single core (uniprocessor client running)
  • 2GB RAM
  • Windows Home Server (a prettified Windows Server 2003)
  • DHCP, DNS, and PXE server, plus system backup server

Extra PC (a Dell Dimension E520):
  • Pentium D dual-core, 2.8GHz (SMP client running)
  • 1GB RAM
  • Windows XP SP3

Server #1 and the extra PC both have wimpy Intel video cards, and Server #2 is headless.

I should be receiving a second Dell E520 in the near future. Owner said it "didn't work" ::) and is throwing it away. I'll probably run SMP on it assuming it has the Pentium D processor and isn't actually broken (which is typical for scrap PCs in my area).

So let's put some light on those WUs I started contribute with ;)
I never participated before on any distributed computing project, but as I am virtually surrounded by computers, I was able to offer lot of CPU time from the moment I noticed the existence of FAH and LN team.

AMD FX-60 @ 2.8GHz
My oldest machine (in terms of both folding time and age) is good old dualcore Athlon64 representing socket939 in the best possible way. This little beast is dedicated to FAH, running SMP 24/7 and being like a living museum of computer history.

Intel i7-860 @ 3,4GHz, Radeon 5770
This machine is dedicated mostly to video recording and processing, it is scheduled to wake/sleep often thus I can let it fold only few days per week, but with full power of 8thread SMP + GPU. Also it serves to me as a gateway to Pandora and entire world of Na’vi.

Intel i7-2600K @ 4GHz, GeForce GTX560ti
Most powerful machine I have, whose awesome CPU I use often but only in short spikes, otherwise it happily folds 8thread SMP + GPU, almost 24/7. Although I am not a gamer, I bought that powerful Fermi GPU with FAH on my mind, like a some sort of "virtual gift" to the Stanford.

Intel C2D-E8400 @ 3,6GHz, GeForce 8800GTX
Last but not least, as a backup/occasional-gaming/data-recovery/anything-you-throw-on-it box, otherwise it folds SMP + GPU.

All those beasts are loaded with fastest RAM that I could find for the appropriate platform, running Windows XP 32bit (stuck with them for compatibility and many other reasons), air-cooled, with high efficiency PSUs, thus giving me the best combination of reliability and performace I can have.

I'm in the same boat with this. I have too much stuff that doesn't work right in 7...I'd be spending much of my time in a VM if I upgraded.

Well, this list is short...

Main folding PC:
HP Elite 7100 Microtower Intel i7-860 @ 2.93GHz, nVIDIA GT230, Win7-64bit
Used for database management in a very short spike once per day only and can fold 24/7.
SMP client running on all cores (8 threads) as solid as a rock.
(until now: no GPU client running)

several very wimpy Network Clients:
wimpy AMD Sempron 2600+, wimpy Graphics onboard, WinXP-32bit
one of them is folding 24/7, the others from time to time during office hours

And my internet is way to bad atm.... Hoping my dad switches to the all-in-one deal with 125 Mb/s soon. My dad also wants 125 Mb/s, because were all fed up with the slow internet or not working correctly.

Currently I have only one machine folding:

Server:
Intel Core i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz (SMP 8 Threads), runs normally 24/7 (there were big WUs, but since a few weeks they're gone)
RAM: 24 GB (possibly DDR3)
OS: Debian 6

There are other 3 PCs, that could fold:

PC1:
Macbook Pro 5,3
Intel Core 2 Duo P8800 @ 2,66 GHz
RAM: 4GB DDR3 @ 1067 GHz
OS: Mac OS X 10.7.2

PC2:
Macbook Pro 8,2
Intel Core i7-2720QM @ 2,2 GHz (SMP 8 Threads)
RAM: 8 GB DDR3 @ 1333 GHz
OS: Mac OS X 10.7.2

PC3:
AMD Phenom II 940 BE @ 3,00 GHz (Overclockable up to 3,4 GHz)
RAM: 6 GB DDR2 @ 800 MHz
GPU: Asus EAH3780 (ATI Radeon HD 3870, 512 MB GDDR4 or GDDR5, not sure)
OS: currently none

PC 1 is a discarded working unit, PC2 is used instead of this. PC3 was my first working pc, but I cleaned all the HDDs to renew the OS, what I didn't do until now. At this age, it needs a hardware upgrade. I'm not sure if this could help folding at all now  :-\.

Well, the CPU can do SMP but don't expect any wonders from it (quite similar to my 965 BE). If you get a good GPU, if possible from Nvidia cause they perform much better at folding, you can still get some decent output from that machine.

PC3 should have some life left in it. I have a Phenom II 940 (non-BE) myself, and it does everything I need it to. SMP performance isn't stellar, but it gets 2000 pts every 27 hours.

I'd put a video card in it and a new PSU if the existing one is underrated. I run a GTS 450 and it produces 8000 ppd. The 5xx series nvidia stuff is even better but absurdly expensive.

At the risk of necroposting, I add to the [email protected] pool:

#1: 24" iMac (iMac 9,1); 2.93GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 8gb DDR3 RAM @ 1067 MHz, NVIDIA GeForce GT120 256MB
#2: Mac mini (Macmini 4,1); 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4gb DDR3 RAM @ 1067 MHz, NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB
#3: Gateway NV59-series laptop; 2.27Ghz Intel Core i5 M430; 8gb RAM, Intel integrated graphics (boo, hiss)

Looking forward to seeing some initial statistics from the bunch :)

Got a new GPU! It's a beast ;D

My updated PC:
AMD Phenom II 965 BE 3.4 GHz (SMP 4 threads)
16 GB DDR3 1333 MHz
Geforce GTX 580 1536 MB (GPU client)
Windows 7 Professional x64

I don't know yet if I will install my old GTX 260 as a secondary GPU. Technically it would be possible but I'm currently thinking about using it for another PC...

Right now I'm only using a PS3 for this (which I have just fired up again).
However, if I find a way of setting up my server for this, I'm going to implant a client there as well...
