Maybe is better to tell us what coin are you looking for to mine, so we can recommend you a GPU miner.

P.S. I hope you are not looking to mine Bitcoin.

Thanks for a reply back with the help first of all. I am looking for anything, let it be Lite coin or any of the other types of the cryptocurrency. Im new to this world and journey so, I really don't know where to start. I don't have a group of people that are involved with this type of stuff. What is your best advice? I currently have EasyMiner running on my computer. But this is the result for running it for a few 2 days!

I have: 0.000019324381 LTC

I really don't know, but I am willing to try. But with the calculations that I did already that it would take me 6000 days to generate one LTC. But if you think that you have a better idea please tell me. Because I was looking at a mining pool group that could/hopefully increase my chances. Since the one that I use know like EasyMiner

First of all tell us what your rig (dedicated multi GPUs PC) is, if you have a rig, if not what mining equipment you have so we can give you the best advice.
I am not a professional miner, since I mine here and there mostly for fun, but I know for sure mining BTC, LTC, DASH with a GPU is not worth the pain, you won't be able to pay your electricity with the mined coins.
Anyway there are few coins that are still profitable to mine with a GPU, even a CPU out there, even tho you won't make a lot of money. You'll get some experience, you'll learn a lot of things and you probably make some friends around the space.
