k4m1k4z3 That works perfect.

After the [email protected] foldathon is over, I will switch most of my GPUs over. Now all I need to do is figure how to get my stats all back on the same CPID

DarkRyder yeah, so boinc is seeing the gtx295 cores. you need to put in a script to use the other 2 gpus.
Create a cc_config.xml file in notepad. The contents should be


The 1 = true, 0=false in the statement above. It does not mean the number of GPUs you have

Place that file in your BOINC data folder. In windows XP
"C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\Application Data\\BOINC"

in windows 7 it will be in the "c:\\program data\\boinc" folder

DarkRyder since the 295's are 2 gpus, but still one pcb i think that they will split a single work unit. not for certain on that. the last 2gpu card i had was a 7950gx2 and boinc didnt support cuda then. in the messages tab does it see both cards?

I have 2 nvidia cards in my system(total of 4 GPUs), but it will only use 1 card at a time... is it able to use all 4?
I tried putting dummy plugs in and extending the desktop too.
I have 4 CPU cores, so its no big deal if they are CPU hungry

DarkRyder as far as the preferences go. if you already have nvidia wu's it will process them normally. when you turn it off it wont download anymore but it will still process the ones you have.
