Yup. From what I'm reading, you can't run the GPU and SMP clients together on a dual-core cpu. The GPU client will use pretty much all of one core, and the SMP has to have both to function.

However, there are workarounds being invented to help users run this combination on Quads. For now, the clients don't use all of the CPU as yet on their own, so it can be done. That being said, it won't last forever, so when they release another client that scales better you will have to adjust/abandon your scheme.

This is the thread you need to do your homework, y'all, so check it out:
