Back in the day when mining was worth it. I ran 3 accounts on one pc.

I've managed to have 4 instances of Eve and one WoW instance running at the same tome without many problems. If you're serious about dual accounting, invest ing a good pair of monitors and graphics card to run your desktop in dualview mode and enjoy the show.

i run 3 accounts constanly on mine. with all three open and visibal on screen my processor sits at about 55% usage on both cores. running a C2D 6300. i did run it at 2.9 gig but theres no need at the moment. i run agent missions on 2 and salvage on another. mucho fun.

Its possible, I often run 3 accounts.
Keep them all in windowed mode, big enough so they can fit your monitor... and you can see them all (if they're undocked). On a 21'' inch monitor and high res, they all fit nicely.
Get rid of audio of course, and the eye candy depending on your computer.

55% cpu? In your dreams! ( i bet eve is not a active window)
the key is to have a ****load of cpu power!
the current eve client is not optomized for dx9 cards, so the client eats every cpu it can get and uses about max 300meg ram per client (high reso)

On this very computer. A five year old dell monster which I brought on a sale and spent 150 upgrading I used to:

Run 5 Accounts on the one computer.

I had 4 screens mining in apocs.
I had 1 screen as a dedicated hauler.

With the roids popping having to target new roids and cycle the rocks to the can and set miner II to shoot again, on 4 screens, then having to contantly navagate a hauler. Took some serious concentration, to make life worse I only had 3 or 4 fps to work with.

After a couple hours my virutal memory went bust and I had to reboot.

However this was pre-RMR when the game was smoother. Not sure if 5 on 1 PC will work now.
