    I read that Snow Leopard will introduce new technologies that will allow the GPU to be used for general processing. I was wondering if that will cause the computer to graphically lag during times of high CPU usage.

    I'm going to go ahead and say that that won't happen.

    If that did happen, would that stress my 8600M GT? I'm a bit cautious now considering I dropped my notebook essentially voiding any warranty.

    It will certainly make use of the GPU from what I have read regarding this. Whether it stresses it or not is entirely dependent on what you use your computer for.

    Although I don't see why stressing it is such an issue.
