    could't get system tray gpu2 client to get to work with my 5850 card,did some searching and found a thread concerning this problem but could not find one on techpowerup, if there is one plz link it! there is a way to trick the client into thinking that u got 4000 series card, here is the solution from the user Sickened1
    "First of all of course install it.
    Try to run it, BUT DON'T CLICK OK ON THE ERROR BOX
    Go to the tray icon, right click and configure it
    Go to the advanced Tab
    Bottom box will say "Additional Client Parameters"
    In that box put "-forcegpu ati_r700" without the quotes
    Restart the client and kabam folding away."
