I noticed my disk usage is only abour 44mb, inspite of about 45gb being free and available to BOINC. Is my hardware limiting computing or would you recommend any changes in my preferences or anything else. Apologies if I'm missing something here.

That sounds normal. The cpu app doesn't use a large amount of RAM. This is actually a good thing, as it allows the data to stay in cache on the processor, which makes it run faster.

Yes, a more powerful GPU would make a big difference.
