Does a 7350 LE count as "half decent"?

Well, now I got my 4870 in there, and I was just wondering.. Does the F@H GPU client use much of my CPU resources? Because it seems to lag a lot now, with BIONC running too.

Don't know alot about the Ati side but from what I've read the Ati client does need most of a core to itself, especially if you're using XP. The new v1.22 core is supposed to lessen the CPU usage when combined with the 6.23 client. Make sure the GPU's priority is set slightly higher than the Boinc client's.
You might have been unlucky enough to get one of the 511pt WU's which can produce some lag, the other WU's shouldn't have any effect. Maybe drop the % CPU usage of the Boinc client a bit to free up a few cycle's...

It should be fine, since this is a 24/7 folding rig, I won't be using it.
Oh, and opening up the display would give me the VPU recovery message, which just means that the driver crashed, so I can't watch the thing..

The display is known to be buggy, so it's recommended not to use it. Even if it dosn't cause a crash it usually slows the system down. Every time they get around to fixing it, the drivers get changed or they issue a new core etc...
