I have installed a Geforce GTX 750 OC on my Windows 10 PC and it works both in SETI@home and Einstein@home. An attempt to install a HD 7770 on my SuSE Linux Leap 42.1 box ended in disaster. It was not able to boot, after carefully following instructions. I had to change the disk, which luckily was an old 160 GB Hitachi disk and I installed a modern WD 1 TB disk, loading the OS from a DVD. This PC is an old SUN workstation of 2008 vintage, and probably its BIOS is too old. But I am running mostly CERN projects with Virtual Box on it, and I don't need a GPU.

A second search in a pile of papers on my desk found a good review article, always on "Nature" magazine:
"Fire in the hole" by Zeeya Merali in Vol.496, 4 April 2013.
One is always dubious about linking "Nature" articles on line, so I prefer to print those which interest me, but this increases the volume of paper on my desk. I have two printers, a Canon MX390 and a HP Envy 4500. This second is a networked printer, so I can print on it from all my PCs, also networked. Things have progressed since using dot-matrix printers to print UNIX manuals.

The Hawking radiation can escape a black hole, even in a time longer than the life of the Universe. Now Hawking says that a computer simulation by Israeli scientists has proven him right and is waiting for a Nobel prize.

A small mammal, a beech marten, has disabled the LHC by biting through a power cable, killing itself. The LHC cooling system was disabled and will be restarted in mid May.

Not every radioastronomer in the world is interested in SETI. This apart from funding problems in SETI@home.

Parkes in Australia is giving data to Einstein@home, and I am crunching its data in GPU tasks.

Finally 2 Guppi vlar ended in reasonable times on my Opteron 1210 Linux box and are waiting for validation. Maybe it was only teething trouble. like that for LHCb on vLHCathome-dev.

I have installed a Geforce GTX 750 OC in this Windows PC and it runs both SETI@home and Einstein@home GPU tasks, getting 4400 credits each Einstein tasks on Parkes XMT data. But CERN programs don't use GPUs and use instead VirtualBox on CPUs. I am running 6 of them, including beta projects on this Windows 10 PC and 2 Linux boxes. Green Bank data so far suck on all 3 of them.

I remember reading that Green Bank will scan the local group of galaxies, including the Maffei galaxies.
