Still a bit confused about the differences between litecoin and bitcoin as far as how the mining process works. Litecoins is better with faster memory from gpus I get that, but is it to the difficulty point yet to even be worth while with just two 6870s for starting out? As it is right now according to calculators, with BTC I would be making about .03 a day or something like that... would litecoin yield a substantially better income?
No way in hell you'll be making 0.03btc a day with dual 6870s...those are way slower than my setup. I could get 980kh/s with both a 6950 and a 7950 and I was getting that amount roughly mining btc. ( http://bitclockers.com/forums/index.php?topic=6.0
You should definitely mine LTC or at multipool.in, just make sure to download all the wallets for the auto mined coins, and exchange them for btc at www.cryptsy.com
(Always make sure to trade them at the place with the highest buy prices for any given coin...they are not linked)

Yep, it's there when you use the mining gpu to render...when using logmein you aren't actually using it per se.
And, maybe you get no errors but you will see a decrease in wu/m for sure. Check the top results with 7970s at github, and you'll see...there's an 800kh/s 7970, intensity 13 and 2 threads...high clocks on water though. On air these cards don't cooperate despite how much voltage you throw at them.
