Hi all, im new here, and i'm glad to participate on this program. I not sure about the computer usage. So the BOINC uses the CPU, and when is busy, uses the GPU ? or how it's works ??( I'm running the SETI@home .)Thanks

If you have the hardware and enable it in your preferences, Seti will use both cpu and gpu equally. You can set the preferences to suspend Seti computing when the computer is in use separately for the cpu and gpu.

It is all up to you how to configure the client for your computer and usage.
