Is it possible to install my GTX280OCX in my spare PCI-E slot and just have it for folding whilst leaving my 5870 totally independent for general day to day use and gaming.

Thinking just having the 280 as a separate folding unit but don't want it interfering with the 5870 and causing problems.

Will save building a separate folding rig.

Thoughts ladies and gents please.

Ok both cards are in and no conflicts.

Drivers installed. Driver Version 8.17.12.5896 - nVIDIA ForceWare 258.96 Driver Date 09/07/2010

Now going to install the client.

Will let you know how I get on.

Oh... should I stop the folding on the CPU? as that's got all four cores at 100%??

EDIT - well the clients folding now as we speak, just need to know how it will work with the client on the CPU running at full steam.
