Nice find cechk01! Anything can help. There are BOINC projects that will suck on the CPU resources will crunching on the GPUs, but we can recommend those members folding on their CPUs to run the projects that don't really affect the CPU too much (collatz conjecture is one that comes to mind).
Let me see what can be done. For the time being, can you send me a link to one of these post/threads where they are recommending to not use the lower end GPU?
