A GTS 8400 is not capable of running GPUGrid tasks as it's a Compute Capable 1.1 card.
CC1.3 or better is required to crunch here.

Excluding aforementioned observations,

Q6600 - probably a DDR2 system (10 to 20% difference)?

Might be worth a gawk - NVidia GPU Card comparisons in GFLOPS peak

Temps might be high - FAQ - Useful Tools - suggest MSI Afterburner if not already in use.

760 has different architecture to 650Ti - think it's 2048 IIRC (it's not all about the bus)?

GL,

Matt, the harsh reality is that GPU WU's use the CPU and the more you use the CPU for other work the more it impacts upon GPU work.
Your app is fine for systems without an NVidia GPU. Otherwise its a bang your head of a wall exercise!

It's not recomended to use the GPU on laptops, but it's yours, its a low power Kepler and you can use or break it whatever way you like :)

However, I strongly suggest that you don't use the CPU and GPU at the same time.

Set and use GPU fan settings in NVIDIA X Server, if possible.
It would require more recent drivers to enable the performance level editing (downclock the GPU or GPU Memory).

Downclocking the CPU (Bios) can reduce temps, but take a note or runtimes and actual temps to see if its worth it for you.

If the system is plugged in all the time, take the battery out!

I use to leave my laptop on its side to increase airflow and reduce heat but I also cooled the base of several laptops with a cooling pad/stand,

The app_config probably won't take effect immediately (even if you read the config files from Boinc) as work units occupy slots and cores are already allocated to started work. So it should kick in after a WU finishes. The trouble with this is that the WU's are long (just like the GPU work units).
