    Hello, been a while since I folded for various reasons. My GTX970 died last week, so in the market for a new card (awaiting AMD news next week), but was wondering where the sweetspot for crunching cards is these days, in terms of units per £? I used to run folding@home and am on a win 10 rig. Not tied to red or green offerings, although power draw may be a factor :)

    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    Green for folding these days, a 2060 or 2070 should give good bang for buck and be fairly power efficient
