    All joined up I think I'm doing this right, running on my new 3570k, I set it to use the gpu but it doesn't appear to be doing so for some reason (7950)

    Did you enable GPU processing at the WCG site?

    Make sure "If my computer can process work on my graphics card, then please send me work to run on my graphics card for the projects that I have selected above." is checked off.

    Otherwise, make sure you have the latest BOINC client installed.

    Yup, that's right. What an amazing GPU--just over a minute/WU :eek:

    I'd suggest that you up the CPU usage to 100% (Tools -> Computing Preferences -> Max CPU usage: 100%)..that way you'll get a bit more work otu of it. But do make sure the CPU temps are OK :toast:

    I had it at 70% but I can put it to 100%. Think I will still be able to browse the web with it at 100%? It is working fine atm lol. Glad to hear that its doing well lol. I noticed that the demand on the gpu seems to come and go I don't know if that is the norm or not? (you can see it in the screenshot). Really doesn't eat much ram, shame cause I have so much of it free to use.

    Yeah, you can still do lots of things with it set to 100%.

    You'll be fine. I run all of my systems at 100%, even while gaming.

    That is how the GPU applications work--it does some work on the CPU & some on the GPU, so there are times when the GPU is idle. You can run two tasks at once on the GPU, but that takes some work to get working right.

    Thanks for all the help, hope my input actually means something lol. At 100% even while gaming? How is performance? Does it throttle the crunching or something?

    Probably.
    I can play RaiderZ with CPU at 100%. GPU's off when I game though.

    BOINC auto-throttles based on what you're doing. If you're basically not using the CPU, BOINC will use nearly the entire thing (whatever's left). If you're putting a higher load on it, BOINC still uses whatever is left--just a lot less.

    While gaming I suggest suspending the GPU part (right-click on the system tray icon and click Snooze GPU)--the GPU app can make things slower, but the CPU part doesn't :toast:
