    It should not be a prob as the SMP and GPU clients are different and use a dfferent Folder.

    Make sure you choose a different Machine ID for each client. Default for the console GPU is 2...so if you already installed that just install the SMP and make it 1 or 3 or any number that your GPU(s) are not assigned.

    What OS you running...I dont know about F@H, but for GPUGRID. I use Vista x64 ultimate & with boinc I run 4 WCG wu's & 1 Gpugrid wu. Xp wouldnt work that way, it would only let me run 3 WCG wu's & 1 gpugrid wu.

    im not running F@H at all.

    i installed gpugrid and it seems as though it just updated my BOINC and im back to running 4 threads on the CPU again.

    it shows the gtx295 as detected but its not using it.

    Your using the advanced view in boinc? You did attach to another project?(gpugrid) & does it show that you have WU's for Gpugrid? Do you like cotton or polyester? :p

    No completely seperate. It will show 2 lines on the boinc client. one for gpugrid & one for WCG.

    You can check your stats for both over @ freedc.

    Two totally separate projects. They share the same BOINC client but the GPUGrid points go to your team there, and WCG points go to WCG.

    That's what I was referring to when I was mentioning that WCG needs to get projects that can use GPU CUDA. Then all the points could go to WCG.

    I figure our XS team will blow right past our rival in the #2 slot if we can get this at WCG. We have lots of really mean graphic cards in our rigs. I will pop for 16 GTX 2XX class cards if this comes about. That would put up some killer points...:eek:

    You're really cranking now!! You've got all that hardware rocking. (Just keep and eye on your CPU and GPU temps until you know how it will react...) Crunch on bro. :rockout:

    i only have one gpu up and running right now.

    i may get the others going soon.

    gpus seem to fold alot faster than cpu but

    cpus crunch faster than gpus.

    odd

    My bad Fits I thought that you were folding lol...I have not tried GPU grid and probbly won't. I like the way my rigs run Folding and Crunching at the same time.

    I found my way here at last; I see some of you are helping out on the TPU WCG team. Just to thank TPU in a small way for giving a home to XS refugees I'd like to join you as well, Rob:toast:

    I said it once, I say it again. I know a lot of the peeps helping me are from XS, but TPU is an awesome place.

    Here you go guys, It was the date that was set up wrong in the BIOS, never paid it any mind since it was my benching rig you know.

    Well off I go two rigs crunching now.

    Lets bring TPU up to the mothafucking top!!!!!! :rockout:
