Default Prifinitty 2 Advice

Hey all. In prifinitty 2, what do i set for my GPUs?

Im running 2 x 260s right now. and an i7 with HT off, so 4 cores.

Do i set them to normal? Do i set both cores to use all 4 cores of the CPU?

Well you want the gpu to have higher priority then cpu folding. So i put the cpu folding to low, and gpu to below normal. Set the gpu clients to use all cores, and make sure you check "do not lock cores to a specific cpu" So they can pick up cpu time from wherever they need it.

My System Specs


I agree with everything odis172 has said above, except that at the very least I would leave the gpu to "normal". I always run my GPU clients at "above" and it did me fine in the 4 hours of borderlands I played last night.

Normally this machine will get about 11K just sitting here. While playing borderlands I still get 6K

Anyway, everyone says that the VM should be low, and the controversy is on what to set the GPU client.... I've tried all the settings and "above" gave me a bit more PPD than "normal" but anything higher than "above" didn't do a thing.
