Yes you will get good points with just the GPU. If you want while you sleep you can also fold on your CPU. If you Fold on all 24/7 you will notice an increase of 10-15% in your electric bill. Just a warning.
@OP-your rig is actually pretty good and you can definitely pull some decent ppd out of it. The q6600 gets somewhere around 2000ppd with one instance running, and the 260 gets around 6000ppd on 511's and 8000ppd on 353's.

You can smp fold and game at the same time, actually. I forgot to stop the smp client when I started up cod4, and I didn't notice any lag until I saw that my temps were too high.
