Default Question on BOINC - Rosetta at home


Just started folding and I want to tune the preferences.

First thing, I have a 3870X2 and a E8400 CPU at 3.825 MHZ, vista64.

When I set up the FAH preferences to 50 % I cant watch an AVI files without the video stopping and starting many times. When I suspend the folding and watch the movie there is no stop/start and the cpu does not show any usage over 10-11 %.

Was wondering if there was something I could do to still fold while watching a DVIX or 2 ?


Sold hardware again.....
Currently using WHS hardware....
