Is it better to have a higher gpu clock speed or a higher memory clock speed for folding?

If your talking about using cuda with nvidia I think tests show higher core clocks matters little more.

On ATI cards, the core clock seems to make the difference for me. The memory clock makes little or no difference.

No problem.

Oh BTW, Im coming after you and Knox, Im making my final move into a new apartment on saturday, then i can start firing up all my folding rigs again. I should also have my 3rd 4870X2 sometime this week.

Q9650, Q9550, Phenom 9950 all running SMP's

3 x 4870X2 so basically 6 x 4870's running GPU2
2 x 3870's running GPU2
PS3

My estimate is about 1 million Points per month.
