Only using his GPU like I do with mine.
He has a AMD 940 quad core, with a AMD 6870 1GB of video ram.
I should be able to run 2 Seti's or AP on this card correct???
I think the most I have seen mine use was around 700-800 megs, right now I only have it set to do 1.

Or should I run out the que, then set it to do 2 and see how it compares????

You can change anytime to run 2 instances.
But a few guys reported issues already running 2 instances on HD 6xxx cards.

I never found any advantage to running 2 instances of either on my HD6870.
