So, let's say I have an account with a mining pool.

I have three computers, and four graphics cards.

Is there any advantage to me, to have a separate worker for each card?
Because if I point them all to the same worker, I get the same total hash speed.
It won't make me mine any faster, right?
Separate workers are just for organization, right?

Donations welcome, not required.
I'll be honest, any donations aren't used for a good cause, they go directly to booze, food, herbal substances Wink, and computer hardware.
I will squander the money, but hell, at least you know one person is having a good time.
