    When running the GPU client, some CPU is used to tell the GPU what to do, but this is only a few percent. If you have a dual core CPU you can run both, if you have a triple or quad then you can run the GPU client and the SMP client. For single cores just the GPU client as if a CPU client runs aswell it will detriment the GPU client.

    Cheers.
    As I'm running a dual core I guess I'll download the standard single core client and run both then :)

    You'll need to download another GPU client for your 8800 GTS. As setting up additional clients is pretty complicated, I'd suggest picking up the latest issue of the mag which has a 17 page guide or heading over to the folding forum.

    At the end of the program pointer add "-gpu N" Where N is the GPU number, the GTX is probably 0, so try 1, you can also run it on both cards by running two instances with the "-gpu N" flag.

    This is unlikely I'm afraid, there are a number of fundamental differences between the two architectures which can't easily be resolved. It was attempted a few years back, and failed.

    I need to read 17 pages in order just to change which card F@H runs on ?!!!! :jawdrop:


    I see, hmm tried playing with that before, made no difference what so ever.
    And I gave up with trying to run multiple instances yonks ago.

    Oh well screw it, ive already part of the team from years back, and have a bunch of machines at work where ive installed it as a service (much to my boss's dislike) since way back, that do run 24/7.
