I have always had multiple monitors, so I generally would set up my folding client the same way that Erik Silver folded with multi-GPUs and multi-monitors.
If you only have one monitor, I would do the following to fold on one GPU full-time and the second GPU part-time.
- Use the part-time folder as your main GPU, by installing it in the first PCIe slot.
- Plug your monitor into the GPU in the 1st PCIe slot
- Install your full-time folder in the 3rd PCIe slot
- Disable x-fire
- Install F@H
- Use the "Advanced Control" to configure your slots
- Set your CPU to 6 cores, or remove the CPU slot if you do not want to fold on the CPU
- Set the "Folding Power" slider to Full, so that all slots will fold full-time whether or not you are using the computer
- When you are going to play a game, or do anything else that is GPU intensive, right click on your primary GPU slot and select "Pause".
- To start folding on the GPU again, when you are finished using your computer, right-click on the GPU slot and select "Fold"
That seems like a bit of a hassle, but I do not think there is any automated way to configure the client so that it will fold full-time on one GPU and part-time on the second GPU.
