    But would this interfere with my cruncher at work since its CPU only?

    You can have multiple profiles.

    My home profile is GPU only, while default is everything.

    Hey guys, how to set the GPU percentage on BOINC? Right now, I have my GPU running at 100%, and I do not want :/

    Unfortunately you can't do that. Either the GPU runs at 100% for WCG or it doesn't run. My suggestion is to check the box allowing the GPU to crunch only while the computer isn't in use :toast:

    EDIT @ Brandon: You do that under Device Manager; click on the device and then you can apply it to a specific profile

    Brandon on Wcg site under device manager you can set your rigs to the profile you want.



    The points are rolling in. If they keep the gpu unit up I might switch this rig to only them. LOL

    Yeah as I was looking at WCG, and saying GPu to use only that %, but on BOINc it's either you use the GPu or not.. I gues I'll have to do that.






    maybe it needs the card to be not on Crossfire?

    Yes that is a 1G :)

    Nope it will use one card at a time alternating after one is finished.

    well, I think BOINC will work only when computer is not working, but for me it doesn'T seems to work.. I'll have to stop GPU usage, as my window are soo slow when I moved them with GPU running at 100% :/

    In your client under advance/perferences uncheck the box for use gpu while computer is in use. Then you can set a time for when it will start after idle.

    That's just for gpu. You can set your processor usage with the "While processor usage is less then" box. Also if you don't have to many queued up you will run through the gpu units quick. I am banging through them at about 4 mins each. I have cracked through 40 of them so far.

    Right around 54 points per unit. :toast: Very high yield on these compared to the other wu we do.

    Pretty much exactly 56 points on my GTX460s and GTX470. Not bad, that's about 27k PPD from the GTX470 alone :toast:

    Your AMD cards should do amazingly as well :toast:

    so calculated like this would be 27K*2/7 = Total Bionc PPD of 7714.3?
