If you go C2Q, you can fold with the SMP client.

It's a high performance folding client, favoring multi-core processors, such as the quad cores:
Folding@Home SMP Client FAQ

It also works on dual cores, but it works more effectively on quad cores.

That's why I suggested the Q6600 afterwards, if you didn't read through the whole thread. He could probably go for a P35 chipset, instead.

Folding@Home Distributed Computing

Quote:
What is protein folding and how is folding linked to disease? Proteins are biology's workhorses -- its "nanomachines." Before proteins can carry out these important functions, they assemble themselves, or "fold." The process of protein folding, while critical and fundamental to virtually all of biology, in many ways remains a mystery.

Moreover, when proteins do not fold correctly (i.e. "misfold"), there can be serious consequences, including many well known diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes.

You can help by simply running a piece of software. Folding@Home is a distributed computing project -- people from through out the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer makes the project closer to our goals.

Folding@Home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed computing, to simulate problems thousands to millions of times more challenging than previously achieved.
