I have a 9800GTX+ running 5900ppd on the new massive wu's....

Also ATI cards dont fold anywhere near as good as Nvids, Ive got a couple 4870's Ive been playing with and 3500ppd is about right.
If you get an Nvid card youll see they get different work unit numbers.
What core number are you running?

Did say about 3k per gpu for a 4870.
Still a great contribution dude

you're right I was looking at the total.
On the other note:
I have 8800GTX where something went wrong with Printed circuit board after my working bench collapsed, it's booting up showing everything and works even in games but picture is corrupted. I'll try it in my second PC if I can get F@H running on it it could be additional contribution, is 8800GTX any good? I know I can overclock it's core stable to 780, does overclocking have positive impact on folding?

Give it a bash tho cos the card may be damaged on the video signal side which shouldn't affect Folding.
If you find that the WU's fail all the time then the card is bu**ered.
Overclocking definitely helps with Folding, especially if you can overclock the shaders.

Ive personaly found the ammount of lanes that a card has available makes a big impact too matey.

EDIT: - damn! TIM pads are on pre-order, no way to run 8800GTX without contact of RAM with heat-sink

I'm not sure why, but my GPU utilization dropped to 65% and my PPD to 3500
Any idea what could have caused this? I'd like to utilize it 100% = both cores fully as before
settings are the same, drivers are the same

Had a look about and not seen anything else similar.

BTW saying that when I mounted back original default heatsink onto my 8800GTX it fixed the problem with PCB and all the "touch sensitivity" is gone and WU's are OK so am happy *******. I'll keep using 8800GTX for folding the only problem is that it run atm in my HTPC rig on fanless PSU Fortron ZEN 300W and that poor PSU started to make very disturbing high pitch sound I'm affraid of it's life

Folding relys on shaders matey, thats why the Nvids rule for folding, its also why the ati gpu client utilises the cpu aswell.
