There's a game called minethings (http://www.minethings.com/miners/index/+21974). It's awesome.

Ummm, now I'm on step 5 of this, and I made the notepad file with the .bat extension in the C:\bitcoin\poclbm_py2exe_20110222 file and saved it with the stuff it told me to put in it. However, when I did the next part, double clicking it, which should show my hash rate, it just made a command prompt window pop up for about half a second and then close. I was supposed to save this in C:\bitcoin\poclbm_py2exe_20110222, right?

- Open the C:\bitcoin\poclbm_py2exe_20110222 directory in explorer
- Create a short cut to poclbm.exe on your desktop by right clicking on it and dragging it
- Right click on the new desktop icon and click properties
- Add the parameters you need to the exe file
- Save.

I think this method is much easier. The GUI version makes it even easier, though.

Has anyone found a fix for the full CPU usage of poclbm with sdk 2.3 and 6xxx cards?

Note: you HAVE to use sdk 2.3 with the 6xxx cards.

Seeing as somebody just did this a moment ago (oddly enough)...
They posted the output from 'poclbm --help' here.

Right click your new shortcut and add it to the line labeled Target in the Shortcut tab.

You mean there's a Shortcut tab on the right click menu and in the Shortcut tab there's a line called Target? Because when I right clicked, the only thing involving shortcuts was Create Shortcut. Sorry if this is frustrating, I'm only 10 so I don't know a lot on this.

- Right click on the new desktop icon and click properties

Or perhaps you haven't made the shortcut yet? Hold the right button down on the .exe and drag it to your desktop, select create shortcut when you let go.

Oh dang, hold the right button. K thanks, I'll try that. Okay I did that, and now what should I put in the Target part?

Looks like you're not familiar with geeky stuff as black-and-white terminals, command line parameters and Matrix style logging. Then you should definitely try GUI for poclbm ;-).

win 7 64 with 2 6970's and I'm getting 50% usage. 25% for each gpu instance. Was on 2.3 11.2 and was having this prob. Now on 11.4 and 2.4 and still having the same usage prob. Doesn't fix anything.

Same here Litt (but on i7-920 so 4 cores with HT) shows me with 2 of 8 threads at 12.5% each.  It seems having multi gpu's is the problem...

It's the GPU miner with graphic interface. You only need to download EXE file, click it and fill login/password for some pool. That's the simplest setup which I can imagine...

(I expect that you have already installed drivers with OpenCL support, but it is not Bitcoin-related).

Edit: Oh, I see that there is no official EXE version of poclbm GUI. Then you have to install 7zip extractor (let's google it) and unpack 7z file. The executable is inside that.

Uh, I downloaded 7zip before for the regular poclbm, and when I unpacked it using 7z, I double-clicked on the guiminer.exe thing and it said something about some problem with OpenCL support. I can't see exactly what it said right now because I'm 10 and before I can download anything I have to ask my mom/dad to type in the admin password (which I don't know) and they'll check to make sure it's "appropriate" before they type it in and I didn't think they'd think bitcoin was so I secretly installed it on my dad's computer but now my dad's computer is password protected and i don't know his password.

10? fatcom4, you better ask your DAD to read about bitcoin in www.bitcoin.org.
If he reads he will know its benefit & then their won't be any problem both for you & him.
Actually you need to install ati stream sdk 2.1 or 2.2, if you have 5000 series card or AMD APP 2.3, if 6000 series card.
You better ask your dad to read about bitcoins & don't give unnecessary fears or problems to your dad.

Why i always got "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC"?, my ip is on dmz on my router+ bitcoin & pocldbm already on my firewall exclusion list, i have no problem with another p2p app.

Please  donate me : 1Cxa2JZ1CE4DUSLtg3j7xaNBNiqjbjQtcG

Die hard x-files fans should use bitcoin, like mulder's says "Bitcoin is out there!".

May be the port 8332 blocked in your router.
allow transmission incoming & outgoing in router configuration page.
port forwarding google for your router model.
