News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Hi, my name is Joseph.

I want to invest in a powerful graphic card for mining bitcoins, because i think it is too dangerous to invest buying bitcoins (if, for example, I loose my wallet); however, a powerful card can be sold again in the worst cases.

Of course, my budget is smaller than 200 dollars, but I think it is enough for a good and modern ATI card for mining.

My motherboard is a little "basic", but it is relatively modern: it have two PCI slots, one PCI-e x16 slot, and a PCI-e x1 slot as well.

However, I don't want to buy powerful card, if it can't fully work with my motherboard. That's what I fear.

Please help me to choose the most powerful and best video card for my system. If you choose well, I'll give you some coins; if everything goes ok.

This is the technical information of my system:

Motherboard: ASRock N68-S UCC
Processor: AMD Sempron 140, 2700 MHz (13.5 x 200)
RAM memory: 1.5 GB
Operating systems: Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04

If another technical details are needed, please ask me for them.

Cool, but i ask if any can fully work or could be limited by the mother board / slot speed.

I know a little of assemble hardware and software, but not about some technical details like this, and i wantto be trust in my invest.

But thank you.

As I understand it, hashing is not limited by PCIE in any way shape or form. There is no card that can max out even a PCI-E x1 slot.

Just make sure you have 2 spaces between the two slots, or else if you use a different card in conjunction with the mining card you won't be able to fit them. If it will be just that card in the machine then it will be fine. I will point out though that it will be very unprofitable to mine a single card on a machine.
