Could it be possible that from other projects, such as GPU-Grid i will get significantly more points in reward than i do at SETI ?

You see, calculating with my GPU cost as much energy as calculating with all CPU-cores at max. charge. (Maybe this depends on actual graphic-card)

Yes, different projects offer different value of credits per workunit completed in an attempt to attract more crunchers.
