    Thumbs up Graphics Card On Sale!

    You could pick up one of these for a modest points boost of about 5k a day.

    Can you run the GPU client at the same time with the SMP client on Windowx XP x64?

    I'm thinking about picking up a 9800GTS. Thanks.

    Yes. But in windows xp the gpu client will use most of one core. I found that the smp client slowed the gpu client to the point it was not worth running smp. This was my experience even after setting smp core priority to low instead of idle.

    Hmm. So it sounds like the GPU client should probably be run on a system with minor resources, like a single core Athlon 64.

    Rats. I was thinking about upgrading the video card on my 8 core Xeon box and running both SMP and GPU clients for maximum results.

    You could run 1 gpu client and one smp client on that box, and still run 3 standard clients. Count on the gpu for somewhere in the neighborhood of 5k per day, the smp does what 1500 per day? And about another 1500 for the 3 standard clients? That is 8k per day from one box. Not too shabby.
