Somehow I missed that information. I won't worry then. Thank you for your help.

10.6.8 / MacPro / NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT (512) / Seti@home only

As I understand it, a single Boinc project will either run on the GPU or the CPU but not both. As stated above, I am only running Seti but it seems that both are in use.

Prefs are set to use 100% of all the CPUs (which it is) but the WUs are completing MUCH faster than before I upgraded to the CUDA card. BOINC recognizes the GPUs and when I view properties for Seti in the manager, it states that GPU work is deferred for various hours but not for CPU work.

The NVIDIA card heats up during crunching, which makes me wonder if I am using both or is the GPU even in use at all?

Thanks for the help.
