Is there any way to see if a GPU is use for Seti. Like compare its performance.

Are you asking about your current GPU's or do you have one you'd like to use.

Your current GPU's are ok. the 8800 is fairly old now but can still produce. Though upgrading to a 5XX series would be beneficial

What you guys think of GTX 550Ti vs EVGA GeForce GTX 470 vs Zotac GTX 560 1GB OC.
Thank you

the 560 should be your best bet.

I replaced my Ati gpu with a GIGABYTE GT630/nvidia gt630 gpu and now all my astropulse tasks show GPU missing and dont appear to be running. What did I do wrong? What should I do to correct my problem?

a) Why are you posting that question in this thread? Does it hurt to make your own thread these days, electric shocks, or does it cost a lot?

b) You've changed hardware. Now, while the tasks themselves may not care if they go to a CPU or a GPU, the application that runs the tasks on the GPU does care whether it runs on an AMD, Nvidia or Intel GPU.

In the case of Astropulse, it can run with the 6.04 application for opencl_ati_100 or with the 6.04 application for opencl_nvidia_100. The opencl_nvidia_100 runs only on the Nvidia GPU, it does not run on the ATI/AMD GPU. Similarly the opencl_ati_100 application runs only on the ATI/AMD GPU, not on the Nvidia GPU.

So therefore the options are:
1. Run all work in cache till the end before changing the hardware. Set the project to No New Tasks to accomplish that.
2. Since the project has "resend lost work" on, it's possible that all this work gets resent, but now appointed to the other GPU, with its own application.

It seems that 2. has happened here.
