So I'm fairly new to the BitCoin community.

I recently set up my miner and I was just wondering why I can't seem to get my MH/s above 25.  It's really frustrating.  I am using my GPU, and I'm using GUI Miner.  My video card is a nVidia Geforce 240 GT with 1GB onboard memory. 

I haven't been able to find any topics about this specific problem, and I haven't been able to find any "extra flags" for my specific card series, either.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Agreed. That's why I have NVIDIA in the gaming rig and ATI in the mining rig. Grin

And really the performance of ATI in gaming isn't that bad - they do make their cards for gaming afterall Wink

First benchmark I looked at:

http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2011-gaming-graphics-charts/3DMark11-Enthusiast,2660.html

They're looking pretty much neck and neck to me. Perhaps 5-10% performance difference at certain price points. Where is the evidence that they "game better"?

Overall there appears to be very little difference, with the exception of certain GPGPU applications, some of which favour certain cards (bitcoin mining being an obvious example).

My 5850 (paid for by bitcoins) is a fantastic gaming card.  No reason to go NVIDIA IMO.
