Can I mine with this card? I don't think it's got OpenCL Support.

Its on the mining hardware comparison list though, as 9800GT and 9800GTX?

Does this mean I can mine with this card?

I've been working on a project that lets everybody generate free bitcoins just for playing games. It's similar to the "" method of making bitcoins!
still got a few bugs and tweaks here and there. I'm asking the BTC Forum community, can you help me work these bugs and problems out?

4  Bitcoin / Hardware / FPGA Miners? on: February 05, 2012, 01:51:36 PM
Hi Bitcoin Folks!

I've got a few questions about FPGA Mining

What exactly is an FPGA Miner? I've seen links to buy FPGA Board/Cards, but how do they work?
Are they PCI type cards for a PC? If not, how do you configure one to Mine / Pool Mine? (Can they pool mine at all?)

What's the profitability of one too? I'm guessing one running at about 250MH will use the same power as something like a Sky box, which is normally switched on in a house 24/7 so electricity usage wouldnt change much!
How many BTC/Month would this bring @ 250MH?

I'm thinking of buying one. But I want to know everything about how they work first.

I've seen them with ports such as audio and usb etc, but just how would I configure and use it if I Bought one??
I want to buy one, but only after knowing all the ins and outs of it. Electricity costs, cooling, how to configure. Etc

Can anyone shed some light on them?
5  Economy / Gambling / Newbie Lottery - 0.005BTC / Ticket on: February 01, 2012, 02:12:30 PM
Try your luck at a cheap lottery game!

I'm pretty new to BitCoins. I started a few days ago and mined like 0.04BTC from a pool!
I decided to invest 0.01 BTC and create a basic BTC Lottery. I've built the website from scratch by myself.

I have personally put 0.01 BTC into the prizedraw. I will look at the Lottery Wallet a few times every day and update the website accordingly (in & out & jackpot value)

Please tell me what you think?

I figured I don't have any reputation on this forum, so I'll sell the tickets for cheap to get a bit of reputation and trust in the community.
I just hope people will take the leap of faith (with 0.005 BTC + 0.0005 BTC Transaction Fee) and put their trust in me.
If it catches on, I'll purchase a domain and move it to a .com site!

Hey guys!
I'm making a newbie Lottery, with costs of just 0.005 BTC per ticket
This makes it so anyone can buy a ticket, even if low on BTC, to try their luck.

I've built the website from scratch in a few days, and just got a tweaks and it'll be ready to roll.

My question is, Would you play it?
Also, how do you make a poll on this thing? Am I restricted??
7  Other / Beginners & Help / Backup and Restore of a Wallet on: January 31, 2012, 07:49:18 PM

I wish to know the restore procedure of a wallet. I'm backing up wallet.dat on a daily basis.
I'm not sure (due to security of bitcoin) if I can simply use the wallet.dat on a new PC

If I get a new PC, Install bitcoin, let it update the block index, then overwrite the wallet.dat it creates with my backup, will it work? Or do i need to backup other things aswell?
8  Other / Beginners & Help / GPU Mining on stock/onboard. Also NVidia FX3000 on: January 30, 2012, 01:51:17 PM

I have a 'HP Compaq 6000 Pro SFF PC', with an 'Intel Q45/Q43 Express Chipset'
I can't GPU mine, because OpenCL.dll is missing. I cannot find a download page for OpenCL and i've also upgraded my driver to the latest Intel Version. Is there any possible way to GPU mine on this PC?
CPU mining is slow, 6.25Mhash/s

Also, I have an 'IBM Itellistation 6230-39G' with a 'NVidia Quadro FX 3000' Graphics Card. I get the same problem and can't get GPU mining to work! Sad

Hello Everybody at BitCoinTalk,
I just thought I'd introduce myself.
20 Year old IT Technician, living in the UK

Pretty good at HTML, CSS ETC Programming, just not good at the design side. Meaning I can create an epic website in HTML and CSS, but only if you plonk a design infront of me to follow!
Also have lots of experience in AutoHotKey, an open source programming application.

Just found out about bitcoins a few days ago and started mining. I really like the idea of a secure & anonymous new currency. In my possession is 0.01 BTC Cheesy

With my skills, I thought "Why don't I make something that contributes to my wallet and Lucky people's wallets, that people won't be afraid of trying out because its so cheap!"
So I made a Lottery with a very fair payout scheme: 70% goes to the current jackpot, 25% goes to next jackpot, and 5% goes to expenses (expenses are fee's to send and the rest goes to me). Tickets are 0.005 BTC each to encourage newbies without many BTC (like me) to try their luck.
It's up and running on a free web host, but I won't release it for a few days (till I get a bit of reputation) otherwise I'll just be called a scammer xD

My mining progress is VERY slow. That's why I made the lottery.

I will take jobs to build basic websites / basic applications in AHK for cheap, just to fill my wallet, if there's anyone interested?
