Thanks again - and sorry for the extra reading assignment!   Wink

Don't use windows, use linux.
You only need max 1gb ram.
Depends how many GPU's your going to be running, but that PSU should be fine.

Only things you need for a mining rig:

Motherboard.
Decent GPU(s)
RAM (1gb for windows, 512mb for linux).
CPU (amd, not a fancy i series).

Looks like this has been created using WPF, which is a bad idea. WPF uses directx9 to render its contents, and everytime you update your screen (external redraw event, or updating the counter to display the mhash) opencl is suspended.

There are ways to fix this though, although you will never get a really optimal solution using .net (or windows for that matter).

No, it's windows forms, and that is somewhat true.

Yes, i know i have a shitty gpu:

Running poclbm from cmd gets me: ~15850kh/s
Running poclbm from BitMiner gets me: ~15800kh/s

As you can see there is very little difference (remember thats in kh/s, not even mh/s) between running it from the command line, or from the gui.

I think you think it's WPF because it's using aero, you will be able to disable that in the next version (not that it make much difference now), but if you want to disable it at the moment, go into properties (BitMiner.exe) and disable visual themes (under compatibility).

Is this any more or less efficient than just using Ubuntu to mine?

I forgot to mention, it's C#, and i've only tested on windows at the moment, on windows it might be SLIGHTLY less effecient, as there is a little overhead from .NET, but barely enough to be noticeably. If enough people donate, i'll get it to work with Mono/Wine.

It's .NET, shouldn't be too hard to get.

          There a bit of debugging code i've left in (such as writing all of the output from the miner to log.log), but this shouldn't affect use.

          It has taken me a while a long time, to write this up and stuff, so if you use it and like it, please donate Smiley
          On the other hand, if you have a great idea that I think is worth something, I might send you some bitcents Cheesy

          1026  Economy / Digital goods / Re: Selling ANY Steam Games for BTC -PORTALS 2, Team Fortress 2, Call of Duy, & MORE on: June 05, 2011, 12:42:29 AM
          I am new and looking for an easier way to get a hold of BTC. I retail on eBay therefore most of my funds are in Paypal. Since no one wants to take Paypal (and simply asking will instantly result in accusations of scamming from morons who believe they have psychic powers), I am hoping to pay for Steam gift games by Paypal in exchange for BTC. If you play TF2 I also have lots of hats and other items I will sell for BTC.

          Steam games can not be charged back. If you want to make a deal PM me with your Steam ID and a list of the games you want with prices. I will buy you any game you want AT COST (based on 1 to 1 trade @ lowest mtgox price). I have about $200 to spend so first come first serve until I'm broke. PM me to set up a deal. First person to trade me gets a 10% discount for helping me establish a trade record here (you must post about it tho).  I expect 50% payment before I send and the other half after you have received the game. So who is first?


          I'll go first if you gift the game upfront, then I pay, because tbh you do only have 3 posts...

          I will try to catch this guy and have him ticketed if I get 10 BTC in pledges for doing so.

          Seriously though, I know it's just a sticker, but it's an eyesore and it's totally self-centered.

          What would you offer for 5850s?

          21btc for 2 including shipping
          1032  Other / Obsolete (selling) / Re: BitPorium - BTC to PayPal - Custom mining rigs - Components on: June 04, 2011, 08:01:53 AM
          hmmm, that sounds very wrong. I will look into it and let you know, there is no way that can be right.

          I see it was an international shipment.  UPS is notorious for being expensive when going international. Send me an email at sales@bitporium.com so I can give you the price for shipping.

          Also, it says "You may want to add some instructions for using the shopping cart here. (defined in includes/languages/english/shopping_cart.php)" on the cart page Tongue

          So yeah, i've got 20btc to spend. What' i'd like is probably 2 5830's, for around 9btc each. And possibly 2-3btc more for shipping to Australia.

          If you have other gpus for sale post here aswell because im not totally sure i want 5830's Smiley (might want 1x 6990 or something).

          PM me or reply here.

          Went to buy 2 of your 5830's, said it would cost 15btc to ship internationally? that's bullshit if it's right..

          Newbie question (I couldn't find the answer): Is it possible to use two different wallets with the same client (one for frequent transactions, the other to store savings)?  Huh

          Thanks in advance.

          Yep, start the client with -datadir savings/ or -datadir current/  or something like that, then it will create a new profile for each of them

          If you want to mine with your gpu, delete the --device 0 and change -d1 to -d0. If you want to mine with your CPU, delete --device 0.
          1037  Bitcoin / Technical Support / Re: (noob) Batch File Not Working: "Wrong login or pw" on: June 04, 2011, 05:45:41 AM
          Hello all,

          I am very new to this, but I have read all of the appropriate tutorials I could find.

          I have created a batch file for the poclbm miner that looks like this:

          start /DC:\bitcoin\poclbm_py2exe_20110428 poclbm.exe -d1 --host=pit.deepbit.net --port=8332 --user=<myusername> --pass=<mypassword> --device=0 -w64 -f0 -v

          (I've taken out my username and password).

          When I run this batch file, the cmd prompt says, "wrong login or password" but neither is incorrect. I have quadruple checked them and even logged in successfully on the deepbit website.

          Am I missing something in this batch file?

          Thank you in advance!

          Well for one, you've specified 2 devices (-d and --device), and you need a space between -w and 64, and -f and 0.
