If I add a GTX260 for PhysX (hd5870+gtx260) I will notice any difference in the Boinc ppd's?

you'll notice some, not a huge difference. You might get the most points doing gpugrid.

will an overclocked video card finish work units faster then a stock clocked video card?

case in point:
DNETC finishes a work unit in about 30 min on stock clocks, if i OC the card would it in theory finish em faster?

i basically setup my Hawk, installed it with some extra cooling and within a day was running Collatz. so i never OC'd it..

Adding to DarkRyder's post, when you overclock the video card, make sure that the speeds that you have set are stable for the card.

normally with boinc you can push cards farther than you could playing some games. with 1 for sure exception. DnetC on ati cards push the VRMs to near melting point. so watch the temps close for the first hour or so to see what they max at.

ok, sounds good. this weekend i will be working on another rig getting the water loop ready. so this weekend i will overclock the card some and i will be sure to watch the temps, although to this point i haven't seen over 50c on stock clocks.

thanks for the input...

sounds good man. if you wanna push it harder on dnet you'll most likely need some sort of aftermarket cooling.
