My system currently is a Q9450 with a GTX260. My question is this. To maximize credit from this machine, should I suspend one of the CPU cores from crunching to let cuda run off of it? Would this make much of a difference?

That depends on what you normally do with your CPU cores.

And where do you plan to suspend the core? In BOINC? Setting it up to use 75% of cores only? That would not appoint that core to CUDA, but instead it would be available for other non-BOINC things.

That makes a bit more sense. I figured out what I am going to do.
