Hello!

I have and i5 cpu (3.3ghz) and my graphics card is an nvidia gt640. using Which would give better performance for Bionic? Or does bionic utilize both by default?


I have been on the fence for a really long time about this SETI thing. As much as I would LOVE to see some results from the project, I have my doubts. Since there is nothing else on this planet that I can do to help humans find other life I have decided to offer up my computer.

Anyways, thanks in advance for your responses.

SETI@Home will use both. However the GT640 will be much faster than the I5, both in terms of time/work unit and work units per hour.
