Maximum CPU % for graphics

I have never understood this setting in MilkyWay@Home preferences.

What the heck does it do? Should I change it? Is it starving my GPU of cpu-time if I run multiple WU on my gpu?

I believe this is for how much gpu percentage it uses to show the screensaver, I leave mine at the default setting since I don't use the screensaver as it slows down the crunching.

Ahh ok. I do not use the screensaver either. I will just leave it alone then. Thanks!
