hi I know this is probably already answered but I cant seem to find it.

I guess because I have a 1.7 gig video card that seti bionic has detected it and is using that for the processing power? is this correct?

if this is true, does it also use my dual core processor at all? this computer runs 24/7 and I would like to donate as much cpu and gpu power as possible.

can someone point out some articles or tutorial? I already have the power setting to no sleep and no hibernate.

BOINC detected your video card because it supports either AMD/ATi's CAL or OpenCL (or both). It has nothing to do with your GPU's speed or RAM.

The default BOINC setting is to use all cores on the CPU and the GPU. It has been noted that this default configuration can cause issues when trying to feed the GPU work and/or saving the results. It is recommended to free up one core for this purpose.

Other than that, I see nothing else to modify or change.
