Any idea how many work units can be completed in a day with the above specs?
Thanks!

That depends A LOT on what project you want work from. Some projects have more than one type of tasks (CPU, GPU... etc).

Example PrimeGrid currently has 25 different types of tasks. MOST are CPU ONLY. Some will run on EITHER the CPU or the GPU. Some have very short (minutes/hours) run times. Some have very long (days/weeks) run times.
