Advantages of multiple clients?

Has any one seen any advantage to running more than one client on your machine?

I am currently doing some research into that very question.

I am running 2 clients currently to see if I get any more folding done than if I were to just run one.

AMD Athlon XP 1700+(1.47)@2200+(1.75)
MSI K7T266 Pro v2.0 - RU
512Mb Kingston PC2100 DDR
MSI GeForce 2 GTS Pro 64Mb
SoundBlaster Live Value
Acer 10x8x32 CD/RW
Pioneer 10x DVD
Watercooled 226Watt TEC cooling Processor.

According to Stanford, the algorithm they are currently using is optimized for a single process running on a single CPU.

So basically only run two processes if your machine has two CPUs.

BTW- only the non-graphical client will allow you to run two processes. For those of you who didn't know that.
