Default Newbie Folding question

Hello i just started folding and i setup my FAH client using "SugarJ's SMP install guide for Folding @ Home" guide.

i setup everything according to the smp section and am currently folding.

just wondering what i should expect, as it is currently finishing 1%(25000) steps every 20 minutes.

System Specs:
i5 2500k
8gb ram (6gb for folding)
gtx 460 hawk

also when im running FAH my cpu and gpu usage remain the same.

Thanks

What WU do you have? If it doesn't look like it's a SMP WU, stop the client. Go into where the client is located and delete the following then restart the client:

Work folder
MyFolding
Queue
Unitinfo

You can use HFM or FahMon to check your WU if you do not know how to read the FAHlog.

That is a beta SMP WU. Based on my calculations, you are currently getting 6200ppd.
