1  Bitcoin / Pools / Which pool could give me the best return bitparking merged mining or Multipool? on: December 06, 2013, 04:44:46 AM
I'm asking this because is hard to calculate future profits.  If I mine in bitparking I can trade all merged coins for bitcoins in the market, well except for groupcoins, can't find a market for it.  Multipool doesn't have merged mining, but it always mines the most profitable sha256 coin.  Anyone that mines in these pools can give me an opinion about which one could give me the best profit?

This applies to any cryptocurrency, let's say I build my machines and start mining.  and I built up to about 1000 coins.  Decided it is a good time or I need to sell  my coins.  Where is the right and best place where I can go and sell those coins? you can specify the kind of coins if necessary.

I found this add on craigslist selling this servers for about $125 with 2 intel xeon 2.8 ghz, 2 36gb ultra 320 15k hard drive, and 4gb ram.  There are little more expensive ones if more ram and hard drive space needed.
So my questions are if is it possible to add two 7950 radeon cards to these servers? and is it worth it to even try?

Thanks to everyone that has helped me. I decided to go with the radeon 7950 cards instead of the 7970.  It saves me $200 and with a difference of  0.02Mh/s/$ lower. I made my calculations with the 7970's I can hash up to 1400Mh/s if oc, with the whole system price of $1100 gives me 1.29Mh/s/$ spent. With the 7950's I can hash up to 1200Mh/s oc, with a price of about $930 for the whole system it gives me  1.27Mh/s/$ spent. So it's not a big difference it saves about $200 dollar.  I will use ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a 16 GB thumb drive I already own.

I changed my mind, I will use milk crates, it looks pretty easy to do after reading some guides. Also swiched from msi 970 mobo, to asrock 970 and switched saphire vapor x to xfx.

Hello, I'm fairly new mining, I've been mining for about a week with my laptop that does 24Mh/s, and it feels that it's going no where so I found this two gaming rigs on Craigslist that looks very promising for mining, I hope someone with moreknowledge on hardware can give me better advice, I feel like the first one can do better for mining but I could be wrong. Thanks ahead of time.
