So the lames are nice 5 which means they should receive 75% of the cpu that
nice 0 tasks receive so they should get 43% of the cpu...

Just a couple of questions;

The X/Gforce case; do they alternate cpu between them? By that I mean when
they're the only thing running does the cpu load summate to 1 or does it
summate to 2?

Gforce presumably is a 3d visualisation? Do you use one of the graphics card
drivers listed that uses yield?
