I don't understand 2 points

1 - I try to restart crunching with my little gpu (r7 260x), 'cause in the past
i crunched separation (modified_fit) with good results.
So, i create an app_info.xml file:

<app_info>
<app>
<name>milkyway</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>milkyway_1.36_windows_x86_64__opencl_ati_101.exe</name>
<executable />
</file_info>
<app_version>
<app_name>milkyway</app_name>
<version_num>136</version_num>
<avg_ncpus>1</avg_ncpus>
<max_ncpus>1</max_ncpus>
<plan_class>opencl_ati_101</plan_class>
<file_ref>
<file_name>milkyway_1.36_windows_x86_64__opencl_ati_101.exe</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>
<coproc>
<type>ATI</type>
<count>1.0000</count>
</coproc>
</app_info>


and copy "milkyway_1.36_windows_x86_64__opencl_ati_101.exe" in project's folder.
In my profile i select only "Use Ati Gpu" and only "Milkyway@Home" app, restart the boinc client and i have something like this: "You have selected not to receive work. Please change your preferences". So, i add "Use Cpu" to my profile and start to download wus.
In other gpu projects (seti, poem, einstein, etc) i see "Running (1 cpus+ 1 Ati gpu)", instead in MW i see "Local:open_cl" and i have to manualy free 1 cpu core to start the crunching. With gpu-z i see that gpu is at 100%, the wus finish after 57 seconds and in my profile i see "MilkyWay@Home Anonimous Platform (CPU)".
So, i'm crunching correctly with gpu?

2 - A some of this gpu(?) wus are "validation inconclusive"

It's too little my gpu?
