I have dual 5770's, a 8800gs, and a 8600GTS. The 5770's run boinc nice, with 90%+ load. My problem is with the 2 nvidia GPUs they seam to share the load, only having between 40% and 50% load. Any tricks to getting a full load out of them? The BOINC client only is running 1 Nvidia Task, and that task eats up a whole core or cpu as well.

Any way to force a project to only use GPU?

I shall elaborate on this one
You need to do it for you online preferences for that specific project.
-In BOINC, make sure you are in the advanced view.
-On the left side, there is a button for that projects web site. Click it, and log into your account.
-go to account settings
-click on "preferences for this project"
-click to edit those preferences
-change it to not use the CPU.

-back in your BOINC client, you will need to hit the update button to get the new preferences file.
