Welcome to our BOINC team!

There are a good number of projects that have work units that should finish within 8 hours on the rig.

CAS@Home - This is one of our Projects of the Month for June. We could use some crunching power on this.
Primaboinca
Rosetta@Home - You will have to set the run time within "Your Account" for it to run the way you want it to.
FightMalaria@Home

For the graphics card, you could try Collatz Conjecture. You will have to go to Your Account and set the preferences to be only use ATI GPU and mini_collatz units.

Those are just some of projects that have work units that finish in under 8 hours. Hope that helps smile.gif
