Some of you may already know the specs of my rig... long story short, I have a Core i7 and a GTX295.

Can I run the GPU client and the SMP(multi-core) Client at the same time???

This is the first time i'll have done any folding in years... so consider me a newb to this :-P

Tell me what to do and I will do it! :-) I've gotta a whole lot of power that I need to put to good use :-D

Check out this site. Download the GPU system tray client for the video card and also the mpich smp client. If you need anymore help setting it up just send let me know. Oh yea team number is 32407. Also for the video card just go download the new cuda drivers for it before you start the gpu client.

Download the Windows XP/2003/Vista GPU System tray client with special viewer for NVIDIA GPU's (installer msi) and Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008 SMP client console version here http://folding.stanford.edu/English/DownloadWinOther. Best guides around are here http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1339662. Remember to set your GPu client to slightly higher priority or the CPU client will take all the cycles and the GPU is were the points are at.

You can find are team stats here http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/team_summary.php?s=&t=32407 and your name will pop up in there after you start finishing work units. And I know I havent finished a unit in 2 weeks. I am slacking.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

edit: Beat me to it Trans
