I may not be the best qualified to answer this but I'll have a go and if not, Dark or Tex or another senior member will be able to advise you better. With dual GPU's, I think a project will automatically use both and it's best to set aside 1 x CPU core per GPU.
I'm running DistrRTgen (GPU only) and also a CPU project. In order to get only two CPU work units to run on my quad core - switch the Boinc client to the 'advanced view', click on 'Tools', then on 'computing preferences'. A box should open like this:
Dropping that to 50% should mean that only 2 CPU cores are used. Don't ask me why but It needs setting to 75% for me to get 2 x CPU tasks going, lol.
