1  Bitcoin / Mining / OC in windows, use settings in Linux? on: June 10, 2011, 07:14:11 PM
Hello all,

I'm totally new to the linux scene and recently installed Ubuntu 11.04. I have Win7 64-bit on the same machine as well.

My question is, if I overclocked my GPU via windows 7 since there are so many applications to do that there, will the settings remain the same when restarting and booting into Ubuntu? If that's possible, will it be alright to switch the GPU to a totally separate machine with a different motherboard?
2  Bitcoin / Mining / Post your hash rate, mining pool & daily generated BTC on: June 08, 2011, 01:34:45 PM
Since a lot have been complaining about deepbit's user base being too large, I'm interested to know about the general experience of people with different hash rates and pools, maybe that'll encourage people to look at other options.

So, please post your:

- Hash rate (mhashes/s)
- Mining pool you're using
- Net BTC generated per day on average.

3  Bitcoin / Mining / About the difficulty increase rate on: June 06, 2011, 01:19:47 PM
If the load on the network remains the same (Thashes/s), will the difficulty continue to grow at the same rate or will it be slower?

Because for example the next difficulty will hit in around a week with an approximate increase of another 200,000. At this rate the difficulty would hit 3,000,000 in like 3 months or less.

So:

1- Will it increase at this rate or will the next difficulty come around slower if the thashes/s remain around the same.
2- Is it possible for the difficulty to Decrease? if so, how?


Would appreciate any help.


4  Bitcoin / Mining / Will a weak CPU bottleneck GPU's mining process? on: June 05, 2011, 08:32:26 AM
Hi all,

Just a quick question, when it comes to gaming, if a CPU isn't powerful enough, you won't be able to use your GPU's full potential. Is that the case with BTC mining as well?

Lets say that you have enough PCI-E slots and enough power coming from a quality PSU. If you have these 2 setups:

1- Low end Intel Core 2 duo processor (or AMD Athlon x2/x4) + AMD 5870
2- Core i7 930 + AMD 5870

Will you get a hash rate of 400mhash/s with both setups or will it only be possible with the i7 930?
5  Bitcoin / Mining / How much luck is involved ? on: June 04, 2011, 04:51:43 PM
Hello all,

I just heard about Bitcoin recently and wanted to get an idea about how it works. Lets say that you have a machine that's capable of outputting 800mhash/sec, based on a calculator I checked using a difficulty of 434882.7217497 (I'm assuming that's today's rate), it says that such machine can generate around 1.85 BTC per day.

Now my questions are:

1- Is this amount accurate?
2- If yes, Is this based on Solo or Pool effort?
3- How much luck is involved to get that amount on daily basis? For example is it possible that you spend days earning nothing or do you approximately get that amount or close to it (more or less) per day? I'm just talking about the current difficulty level, I know in the future it might be much harder.

Any help would be appreciated.
