To add to what cw823 has said, I leave the SMP client running constantly in the background whether gaming or not with no problems, but normally will shut down the GPU client when gaming. I have noticed some minor stuttering on games with it running. Your kids may not notice it, but you would if it happens.

The priority=96 argument that cw is referring to is invoked at the client start automatically if you set up the GPU client to use "slightly higher" core priority. It isn't as difficult as it sounds. You just tick the option on the Advanced page in the client control panel. You do not want to do this if you aren't running a CPU client, though.
