My System Specs

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.
Yeah I know, I run VMWare Workstation on my desktop for virtualization stuff that I need to do from time to time. I guess I'll throw the 2GB in it then, since it's also collecting dust...

I was just going to set VMWare to lowest priority in task manager, but that's good to know that I can just edit the vmx accordingly instead.
