so what do i need to make my pc faster a larger graphics card

That would certainly give you better performance in a game.  The question is do you want a faster computer, or do you just want to fold faster?

If it's that old then it probably doesn't support a video card capable of running the GPU.

    I can't believe that I went from 32 to 21 in a day.  On my pokey lil ol' laptop.

    Maybe not my place to respond as I'm obviously not unlovedwarrior, but personally I can't think of a better cause than [email protected]  I can't value the energy and monetary costs above the possibility of finding a cure.
    We all have different priorities for different reasons, I personally do what I can, no more and no less.

    There are a lot of inactive folders down at that end of the team.  Movement is quick up to a point, but the top ranks can be difficult to reach.  Hopefully, we'll see you there ;)

    I'm really not too worried about the top ranks, this is more about the project than my own stats, but that certainly explains the jump.

    Good philosophy to have, and one that I usually keep myself.
    The competition introduced by the points does tend to heat things up a little though, some friendly competition doesn't hurt if it increases the production.

    On another note, I've had to stop folding on both of my own systems.  The heatwave here makes my room just about unbearable (it must be the only room in the world that doesn't get a breeze with the window open wide) so I'm trying to eliminate all the heat I can.  That means I'm easy game for anyone willing and able to take the #2 team spot in my absence.

    That's completely understandable, everyone has a different income or other factors affecting how much they can contribute.  I'm able to afford to keep my machines running, but don't have the space to expand yet.  I'm also struggling with the heat which is why I can't fold now.
    Giving what you can, when you can, is what it's all about, and whatever you do helps.

    Well, the heat's magically disappeared, so I started folding again.
    I hoped to light up my afterburners and be off, but my units seem to have dropped down the drain, no credits have shown up whatsoever and I've completed at least 3 units.  other credits have gone on as usual (i.e. I've seen other team members' points and units be awarded) but not mine.
    Will wait and see, if nothing's happening by tomorrow I may have to head over to the support forums and ask.  On the other hand, the units that haven't been credited may be awarded in the next big recredit (we had one a week or so ago, you can see the huge spike on the stats ... all previously missing WUs were credited at once).
