Hey all.

Being now addicted to Bitcoin mining, I want to mine as efficiently as possible. But I have a dilemma: I use my computer most of the day.

So I'm wondering if there's a miner that would detect if my GPU's usage by another program exceeds 10% and pause the mining, so that I may constantly run it in the background automatically, but not have it lag down my gaming, video watching, etc.

It's a bit of a hassle to remember to enable GUIminer whenever I'm not ingame, and to disable it when I use MPC.

GUIMiner uses poclbm and it frees resources as soon as needed, the only problem it doesn't do it fast enough so a game lags. Add -f300 extra flag to reduce lag, more about flags here https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Poclbm

Thanks! I had another response to this that said -f 60, and it seems to work alright.

Would there be any advantages/disadvantages to switching the framerate up to 200?

Greater number means a game would be less laggy , but also less Mheshes with miner. With 300 i have 15 Mhesh drop, but can play WoW with no lag.
