HI OCN!

So I leave my Alienware M15x running 24/7 doing nothing and I thought about how wasteful it is having it just sitting there and not helping out our team, so I've decided to change that!

I've never folded before nor do I know much about how it works, but I'm willing to learn and help!

Anyways, I have an i7-840QM, a GTX 260m, 8 gigs of DDR3 @ 1066 and some other irrelevant stuff. My question is, how can I maximize the folding performance of this rig? I have heard of a certain client called bigadv made for 8 thread CPU's (like my hyperthreaded i7). But....

1. Should I set up this bigadv thing? How do I do that?
2. How do I bring my GPU into the mix? Is there some way to fold on both CPU and GPU at the same time?
3. Is there anything else I need to know? Helpful threads maybe?

Thanks! I look forward to helping the team.
