Perhaps it is a dumb question but... can I use the actual video card for mining? I mean, if the mining card can be used at the same time as the running video card.

TIA

You may have to tune the miner frame-lag setting "up" to allow more processing for video, if you're doing things like watching movies or playing games while mining. This setting would vary depending on what miner software you're using.

On momchil's miner this would be set with "-f 90" or so.

OK, thanks.

Sure I'll come back to the forums when I purchase a GPU.
