Also, you only want to run one SMP client, not two. The single clients are fine running multiple on multiple cores. But the SMP client will launch 4 cores in the background for a single SMP client. SMP is designed for quad cores, but it runs fine on many faster dual cores. But if you try to run 2 SMP clients on your system, you will most likely not hit any deadlines and all your WUs will be deleted before completetion.
Based on your CPU, you may get better results running 2 single console clients rather than an SMP client. If you do choose to run SMP, monitor your times closely. A good rule of thumb to follow, is if it takes longer than about 30 min per percent, you will likely not hit deadlines and actually net less points than running 2 single clients.
