    Probably a noobish question but can I use a secondary GPU (Nvidia 8600gs) for folding without using my primary GPU (ATI 5870)? I ask this because if I do it this way I can keep folding even if I'm using my primary GPU for gaming etc.

    Yes. You'll want the console GPU2 client & you'll need a shortcut with the '-gpu 1' flag and a separate machine ID :)
