Aside from the standard 6.03 Win Intel X86 app, in the details, the Anonymous Platform, CPU is listed, but no GPU app appears to be there.

Don't take life too seriously, as you'll never come out of it alive!

I don't seem to be getting any GPU work on my nvidia 8400GS (I know...not a workhorse). I don't get any acknowledgement in my log file that I am requesting any even though I have GPU turned on in the Boinc manager. Yet, one of my 4 cores is idle when I set GPU to yes. My GPU meet minimum rquirements and I have the right driver.

So, would I be better off, turning GPU to no?

You installed an anonymous version of the CPU app, did you also install a GPU app?
Shut down BOINC and re-install the apps, and make sure you select GPU to get the app.
