My System Specs

And does it matter if I grab the one you linked (seems mainly for ATI) compared to the one that says its for NVIDIA?
1GB of system RAM is not enough for folding using a VM, so you should wait until you upgrade to start doing that. If you do get 2GB of RAM in there, you can have the VM automatically run at a low priority by editing the folding.vmx file and changing the lines for "priority.grabbed" and "priority.ungrabbed" to "Idle" like so:
priority.grabbed = "idle"

priority.ungrabbed = "idle"
The GPU client has one installer, and it will set itself up automatically based on what GPU you have installed in your system.
