    Q9400@3.2ghz stable
    750i ftw mobo
    2x2gb ram
    560ti 1gb
    9800gt 512mb
    Like the title says If the above was your computer how would you set it up for the most ppd possible
    so far running GPU Tracker, atm it reports
    smp@3,400 ppd use all CPU cores
    Gpu0,GPU3 client fermi (560ti)12,000 ppd
    GPU1 g80 (9800gt)3,950 ppd
    I clicked the autodetect and left it alone
    should I use Add -advmethods on the 560ti and/or the 9800gt?
    would I get more TOTAL ppd if I used 3 cores for the smp leaving one core for the two gpu clients?

    First of all that setup looks correct. You might be able to improve your SMP PPD by running on 3 cores instead of 4. (since the GPUs will use about 1 core)

    -advmethods doesn't improve PPD usually, but it's worth experimenting with if you have the time. Most of the WUs that are released to -advmethods are stable enough to use for 24/7 folding.
