    I wish nvidia would get thier cudas drivers out and working so I can use my gpu for folding. I was inclined to go Ati instead of nvidia because this was one of the reasons. I will get screenies when I get home :)

    hang on just a few Q's, firstly, on my QX9650 i only get 28% cpu usage when the client is set to 100% cpu usage, and how do i get it to use my gpu too? or is that automatic?

    If you downloaded the GPU client, then it automatically uses your GPU. It also uses one core of your CPU. You could download the SMP client also and run it on the other three cores, just make sure you set the priority of the GPU client to low, and the CPU client to idle when you configure them.

    When I launched the download it asked for a name and number so I put Shadowfold and the work ID thing on the first post. Its doing these step things like 1000 out of 250000000. Am I doing it right?

    i think i'll join (for reals this time) with the GPU client for Nv once it comes out. the SMP client doesnt like me, and running multiple singles doesnt appeal.
