I followed a setup guide that included running bitcoin.exe -server, then sending any GPU bitcoins found to said bitcoin wallet.  My question is, is running bitcoin.exe necessary at all if I am using pooled mining (deepbit), and connecting directly to deepbit's servers?

No, it's not necessary.
And don't enable it's "Generate coins" option - it's useless.

Not necessary to keep it running at all (my mining machine doesnt even have the client installed). I just sync the wallet once a week from any mining payouts I've gotten. Then rinse/repeat

So it's only purpose to me, as a GPU miner, would be to track my wallet.dat?  And that's only if I'm actually USING said wallet?  Interesting... thanks!
