Thanks! Mine is a Seasonic, well I suppose I'll find out in a week lol.

Hey.  I can speculate based on my knowledge of windows, but I haven't tried first hand.  I boycott nvidia because of a stunt they pulled years ago when Vista came out, and I haven't gotten over it yet.

1 - Should able to use both without a problem.
2 - Probably.  You won't want to bother with the 560 though once you see what the 5970 does for you. Smiley
3 - I would think this would be the ideal use of your nvidia card.
4 - Make sure you have the power supply for it.  The 5970 is a beast of a card and is power hungry.


Thank you! About the power supply: I never even thought about that... I have an 850W, do you think that will cover it? If not, do you think taking out the 560 Ti will cover it? If the 2nd option does I would just sell my 560 Ti, no biggie.

About #2: Yeah, figured the 5970's going to be amazing at mining, but ehh, Got my 560 TI to run at 105 MH/s, suppose every bit (no pun intended) counts.

Hello, sorry if this is a noobish question, I looked around and didn't find much of a definitive answer for this:

Here is the lowdown... Back in Nov. 2011, I decided to build a gaming computer. Soon after, I got into bitcoin mining, and have mined a bit with my 560 Ti that I bought. Here are my complete system specs:

Intel i5-2500k
Asus P8-Z68 v-Pro MOBO
Asus 21" monitor
NVidia GTX 560 Ti

I, just a few minutes ago, bought an ATI Radeon 5970 HD on ebay (for around $375, seemed like a good price).

I have a few questions revolving around this:
1.) Can I have both a NVidia card and an ATI card installed with NVidia drivers and ATI drivers running at the same time?
2.) Can I use both cards for mining at the same time? (if 1 is yes, I'd image yes for 2?)
3.) Can I run my 5970 mining and game on my 560 Ti (1) is it possible (2) would it be laggy?
4.) Anything else I need to be aware of for this kind of setup?

Thank you guys so much Smiley

Oh, electricity usage has never been a problem for me, I get free electricity. Totally forgot to factor that in >.<

Hello Smiley

I understand that a NVidia card is of course not optimal for mining due to it's inherent lower MHhash/s speed, but if you are stuck mining with a 560 Ti (bought it for gaming, then decided to go mining later, whatever), here is how I increased my hash rate from 90MH/s to 108.2 MH/s:

In NVIDIA Inspector (, click "Show Overclocking" then confirm that you understand the risks.
After this, set your:
Memory Clock: 1382 MHz (could go lower if you want)
Shader Clock: 2053 MHz (much above this and it is unstable)
Voltage: 1.050 V

Click "Apply Clocks & Voltage" and start up your miner and see if it is stable. If not, adjust the shader clock down a tad until it becomes stable for more than a minute or two.

Don't have much time right now, but later I'll go through and see if I can't push it to ~110 MH/s, I'll update this post if I am able to.

P.S.: At this clock my GPU stays at around 70C, so I think I have still a fair amount of headroom for chaining settings.

Hey, been trying out the site, quite fun Smiley.

Just one thing I've noticed aside from what people have been saying lately, earlier you said, Nachtwind, you have a fully-working shop, but it doesn't seem to be working for me Sad When I try to buy an upgrade with any type of coin... it says "Button Here" instead of having a clickable button. Is there something I'm doing wrong, or are we just waiting on an update for this?

Again, awesome project Smiley

Pla: thank you Smiley Not sure exactly how to implement this, but that logic will help alot Smiley

markm: I haven't really seen litecoins used for virtually any gaming aside from 1 or 2 sites, bit coins seem of course more frequent, but still not "common". Yea, I see what you mean, litecoins would be more for products not currency in a virtual game?
1688  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Litecoins--Dead or Alive? on: May 10, 2012, 03:18:09 AM
@Rothgar: you are talking about the text-based RPG? Thanks Smiley Do you know any kind of thing to link an amount received in LTC to a wallet to a certain address to writing a file? This is the one major roadblock I see in the way of the project...
1689  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Litecoin - a lite version of Bitcoin. Launched! on: May 10, 2012, 12:28:13 AM
Quick question, could someone help me set up solomining? I have litecoin downloaded and working (with around a 47 LTC balance I got from pool mining). I have had no trouble pool mining, but I set the litecoin.conf just like this:




#Change this if you want to use a different rpc port for mining

#Only uncomment this if you are running litecoind (not Litecoin QT)

and I am using the following settings in ScryptMiner (with a GUI frontend):

Threads: 4 (I have a i5-2500k) Scantime: 5
RPG Server: 1 (also tried server and localhost)
Username: miner
Password: litecoin
Port: 9332
<No additional parameters>

Could someone point out if I am doing something wrong? thanks!
1690  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Litecoins--Dead or Alive? on: May 10, 2012, 12:22:52 AM
To get a few things straight (although I don't think this will help anything):
1.) I am not coinhunter, I don't support solidcoin, I have never even used solidcoin.
2.) I am also not never2sleep, I lent him bitcoins and he returned them quite quickly. After that whole issue, I moved on to investing in more ensured things (relatively speaking), at the momeny hash king's bitcoin deposits.

As well, even if I was either of these people, I am only trying to ask whether Litecoins are a viable currency and whether people accept them, and I got my answer, thank you Smiley. Do you think there would be any demand for a text-based RPG that uses litecoins as an internal currency? Litecoins seem like a perfect choice because of their relative ease of mining/producing, and since they are cheap, they'd be an interesting currency for truly micro-transactions, and could be used as the true or secondary internal currency that players trade in. Just an idea that I've had rolling around for a bit of time now.

And BitcoinEXpress: why would I be a scammer? I have never scammed anyone... as well @BitcoinEXpress, not sure if your response was sarcastic, but LTC at the moment seem much more useful than Solidcoins.
1691  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Litecoins--Dead or Alive? on: May 08, 2012, 09:30:23 PM
Guys I don't support SolidCoin, doesn't seem like the people behind it have any interest in anything but profit, and the latest MicroCash whatever seems more than a tad fishy with statements like "Sell your bit coins while you can!", etc. I was simply wondering what you guys thought about Litecoin as I've had some fun mining them lately and have around 45 and was wondering if the project was dead or not.

At any rate, does anyone know of any retailers that actually do accept LTC for one thing or another? I'd simply like to know if I have any options for spending them.
1692  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoins--Dead or Alive? on: May 08, 2012, 01:53:02 AM
Hello Smiley I have recently become interested in LTC and have mined 7-8 of them (mostly on GPU, ~75khash/s).

I was curious what you guys thought... is litecoin dead? Are there any known merchants that accept LTC? I poked around on the internet and couldn't find any merchants accepting them, did I miss something? I understand the exchange rate is orders of magnitude lower than BTC (1BTC is worth thousands of LTC).

Read through about 10 pages of this thread so far, and was just wondering, how's the current shipping lengths these days? Thinking of getting a single.

Sorry I'm a bit confused, how/where do I deposit bitcoins into? (Sorry I'm really new to all of this...).
1695  Economy / Lending / Re: Looking for a Loan, + build my credibility on: April 24, 2012, 03:29:47 AM
@Tomatocage: I honestly just got tired of this thread and didn't find much else of interest on the forums in the lending section. BTW, is a 7970 worth it for mining, or would I be better getting something like say a 5850?
1696  Economy / Lending / Re: Looking for a Loan, + build my credibility on: April 21, 2012, 05:58:50 AM
If you guys want some more information about who I am, I am Vorksholk and I run a minecraft server ( participate in a YouTube channel (omicroncrew) and more with this same username. No one named never2sleep has any correlation to any of those. Food for thought, I suppose.
1697  Economy / Lending / Re: Looking for a Loan, + build my credibility on: April 21, 2012, 05:56:27 AM
Guys, here is some food for thought. I have a fairly large online presence between all the sites I've used the same username (Vorksholk) on, just google "Vorksholk" or here is a google link (which goes to page 19 auto):,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=11e991441f3e1091 .

Look up never2sleep, it is very different. We had registration dates similar, and similar numbers of posts, and I lent bitcoins to him and was payed back a lot faster than I anticipated, not solid evidence we are the same people, although I can see where you are coming from. I'm not just lending to this guy and leaving, I'm going to lend to others and probably invest in hashking's deposit. I'm surprised on all the negative attention I've received here with lending someone with a similar number of posts and a similar join date some bitcoins.

What kind of proof are you guys looking for to prove we are not the same people anyhow? Are you looking for something like ID, etc. because IP address/geolocation/information on profile/posting history doesn't seem to be good enough (which I can totally understand). At any rate, what kind of evidence are you guys truly looking for here? Being that bitcoin is based around the ability to be anonymous, it's pretty hard to track anything like an address I understand, so transaction records are practically worthless.
1698  Economy / Lending / Re: Looking for a Loan, + build my credibility on: April 21, 2012, 01:01:29 AM
@bo2573: why is that?
1699  Economy / Lending / Re: Looking for a Loan, + build my credibility on: April 20, 2012, 11:54:46 PM
Bitcoin loan repaid far before due date, and with an extra +4% to interest rate!

Not sure if this is common convention, but need2sleep: you may want to post the transaction, not sure if this is something people regularly do, I'm very new to this.
1700  Economy / Lending / Re: Looking for a Loan, + build my credibility on: April 20, 2012, 04:14:58 AM
Yeah, I'm planning to moving over to investing in hashking's deposits perhaps once I build my rep up just a tiny bit. Anyone here had any direct experience with hashking's deposit service? Looks pretty credible due to what I've seen so far.
