1  Other / Beginners & Help / The 1 thing we NEED to do in order to make Bitcoin more popular on: June 16, 2011, 11:05:37 PM
"Bitcoin is the future of currency."
"Bitcoin will skyrocket in price."
"1BTC will be worth $3000 in 2014."

These are things I've been reading on the forums these past few days and I go  Roll Eyes

I do believe that Bitcoin has the potential to change the global market forever, but I think in order for this to happen we need the general public to start using Bitcoin. More people using BTC = higher likelihood of BTC sustainability

The biggest challenge I see for Bitcoin to start getting used by the general public is: usability
Your average person is not technologically savvy enough to understand Bitcoin enough to put his faith and hard-earned USD into it.
I'm not very technologically savvy and it took me hours of reading the wiki and this forum to actually get a somewhat good grasp of how to exchange USD for BTC.

So I think the solution to this is to make software that is user-friendly enough for your average person to set-up a wallet and exchange BTC.

If this doesn't happen BTC will never expand past the techno-geeks and we will all watch as our BTC value plummets...
2  Other / Beginners & Help / Is this a good setup for a new rig? on: June 14, 2011, 05:45:38 PM
Hi I'm new here

I just found out about the bitcoin craze (when i heard that LulzSec got a 7000BTC donation lol) and want to try making a rig and creating some bitcoins. I'm not a fool and know I'm not gonna get rich; I just want to do this as a hobby and learn some more about computer hardware.
But I would like my setup to break even, at the very least.

I'm about to buy this setup:

530 watt power supply (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182199)
Foxconn motherboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186189)
2 ati 5830
2 gb RAM
80gb hard drive

what do you guys think? is the power wattage enough to support the 2 x 5830s?
