It is better to run that card on any other Project. MW is an "ATI" prefered Project. I looked @ your Answer in another thread here, with 17mins of completion per WU. My old 3850 AGP! (power of ~ a 8800GT) only needs 7 minutes. I have a 560TI too (run it with my standart BOINC proofed old 260.xx driver), and its better on any other projects like Einstein, seti, GPUGrid (>100k RAC but not opimal used, cos its a CC 2.1 Card) when you like science. The same problem with GPUGrid, never use a ATI card there, unless it is a absolut top card, but then i would use it better on MW for >300k RAC ^^ To use a 560TI with 180W powerusage for only ~12k RAC here is not that good ;) Then i would buy a cheap 5850 as second card or something for much lesser powerconsumation but much more RAC (i think 100k? i read somewhere).

There is something odd going on with our 560Ti. As I wrote on the other thread, mine takes about 5 to 6 minutes to finish a wu.

I took a screenshot:

P.S I am using the latest beta drivers 290.53.
