I'll take care of this when I move over the GT 240 to my main rig while the 285 is getting RMA'd.
Just considering the wattage delta from idle to load, this card gets about 100 PPD per Watt. What are other people's cards doing?
This is important as I have several PCI-E slots I could throw a few cards in. Gimme data everyone!
As exmple, I can get 3 GT 240s for $240. They would be worth 11,000 to 12,000 PPD and pull around 120 Watts.
Really I think I need to swap out the 780G board for something with more PCI-E slots. That would give me 2 or 3 more cards to fold with.
This guy here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186149 could hold 4 GT240s
