I have a crossfire 5850 system, and this is the way I have been mining:

On a mining pool, create two workers. One for GPU1, one for GPU2. In poclbm, designate one GPU per worker. And...mine for 24 hours.

I have both GPUs mining on the same pool.

Is that a bad idea? I always see people with multigpu miners have one GPU on say deepbit, and the second GPU on slush. Why is this a better idea? Or is it just preference?

What is the ideal way to mine with 630MH/s?

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

Hi,

i think it is just preference in which pool you want to anticipate. For the rest: test it: If you get over your 630MHash / sec, then do it, else stay with 630.


If you like my advise, i would be thankful getting a small donation at:

Just today I've been tinkering with a two GPU system for the first time. I guess it could have been bad luck/timing, but I was trying to get both GPUs running on BTCguild with phoenix on high aggression and had a lot of network troubles/idling workers. Once I switched one GPU to slush's and the other to BTCguild (also worked when I tested Eligius) all of the network/idling problems went away. Also I suspect I have worse latency to the US than a lot of people.

So basically - this is completely anecdotal advice and I really don't know how the system is "supposed" to work, but after a couple hours of testing my conclusion was: mine in two different pools for best results Smiley
