Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Are you folding with the CPU and GPU? Do you have a passkey?  Any flags set? What client?

It really depends on the work units you get, the CPU and GPU speeds you run and how long you leave your computer on.

I'm running version 7.2.9 running cpu and gpu at the same time. I'm running my own team with no passkey

Get the passkey. I found version 7 slowed down my wife's rig tremendously when folding with that client. I'm still running the 6 series CPU and GPU client getting between 38 and 48K a day from a Core i7 920 @ 3.6Ghz and a GTX 560Ti.

If there a way to prioritize bigger better workloads?

You can run high performance clients and beta clients, which are compensated by higher PPD.

But they require a lot more maintenance to keep the client running, for ATI try V6 GPU2 Ver.6.23 and for SMP/CPU try V6 Beta Ver.6.34

And get a passkey for bonus points. in advanced settings & client files, I use V6, advmethods - forceasm, verbosity 9 

 

It's best to visit F@H forms site, and look at setting up high performance clients, and how to use flags, client performance tweaks, and which settings are best for your hardware to get the highest PPD.

Thanks dude! I figured out that a lot of my performance was being lost to the fact that I installed it to a ram drive. I think ram i/o was getting in the way of some of the work. I signed up for a key and that helped too, later on today Ill try a quicker client.
