i just got started wcg is reading at 50% and the gpu grid is also at 50% in projects is this normal or do i need to add something to preference i would like to see wcg back to 100%. or is it a 24 hour thing to see both clients at 100%.:shrug:

Check your preferences>processor usage tab. I think it needs to be moved to 100%. IIRC, the default is like 60%. Going from memory here....:up:

Also, be sure to check " Use GPU while computer is in use".......specially if you have more than 1 gpu...

that's normal, if you added another project it would go to 33%. if you had 4 it would be 25%.
since wcg is on the cpu and gpugrid is on gpu, they're separate system resources anyway.
now if they were both cpu projects, you'd actually be gioving 50/50 to each one. but since they are separate resources, then thye get 100% of each resource. almost. each gpu client takes about 2% cpu to run.

How long should an average WU take on a GTX280? Boinc only shows my 8600GT, yet it crunches on my GTX280. 7 hours just seems 'long' right now, but I can also remember units taking up to 30 hours on my FX570.

yeah, they take a long time. my 260 takes about 2-12 hrs depending on the wu.
