good day and thank you for taking the time to read and try to help my situation.

i have a pair of gtx-580 gpus that i preffer to do the crunching, rather than the cpu. and it does seem to be doing what its supposed to. but since i restarted doing this a month or so ago ive played w a lot of projests, 1 at a time even and it seems as tho im only getting a tenth of the credit that the other projects show me (on stats tab).

is it just me or should ther be somthing i can do to better help this project, rather than let me resources go to other projects i would very much like to be a better cruncher for setti.

other project tend to be overly generous with the credits when it comes to crunching numbers. Also the Seti@home WU's are a bit more complex than most other projects.

S@H does give credits for exactly how much work is done. Others typically just hand out credit without regard to the amount of work done. This keeps people crunching for them when otherwise people would just abandon them
