    I've got an old ass 2006-ish Dell Inspiron with a Centrino CPU crunching on WUs that take about 3 days a pop.  Also have a 2013-ish iMac that MIGHT finish one WU in 24 hours.  Even though my main rig can pump out a few WUs a day, these other two old and busteds are still churning on WUs... solving problems, contributing to the research, and - yeah, gettin' me points.  But, each CPU or GPU cycle is one cycle closer to stomping out diseases.  Don't let it get to you.  Everything helps!  🙂

    Oh, I'm not discouraged. I just wish I could contribute more.

    I am up to 4. I could run this on my server but the Mfer gets loud and it's in the family room. I do have an old Lenovo workstation I could fire up but it might be pointless as it only has a i5 3470

    All my machines are pretty old. A lot of people are getting more points in a day than I get in a week. But every little bit helps.

    Pretty much me, only with an bunch old desktops (AMD A8-5600K, AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition 965 and a Intel i5-2130 and a crappy GT 1030 XD (also tried an old Intel Atom, is not worth the try for this XD ) Could add to the fight maybe a Intel E2160 or a Q6200 (that one is actually only running seti@home for now).

    I got up this morning and, after four days of folding across 5 machines, I've got 109,000 points. I thought that was cool, then I saw some people get twice that in a single WU. Oh well, every little bit helps.

    Some of the larger GPU Work Units (WUs) can use up to 1.5GB RAM. Learned that the hard way and had to upgrade my 6 GPU system from 4 to 8GB.


    For a single CPU and GPU you’ll need 2GB memory and a 1.9 - 2.5MHz CPU at a minimum.


    I ran an RTX 2070A on a Athlon II x2 2.8GHz processor for months with a single 2GB stick of DDR3-1333 with no noticeable drop in performance.


     Well, the T500 currently can't even get through the Windows 10 installation process and it gets really hot. I think it's only got 4gb of ram right now. I should see if I have any more sticks lying around.


     Curiously, I have an old HP Pavilion that's now folding and while it's working the i5 nonstop, the Radeon HD 6450 hasn't been used ever by foldingathome.
