I would like someone to provide me an hour and a half of their time for 1.5BTC.

I'm new to mining, and would like to talk to someone with experience, preferably with some sort of credential. I have questions about the current profitability of mining, need information on finding the most price efficient hardware, and would like troubleshooting for getting things up and running.

Please list relevant experience/education and I'd like to move forward ASAP. Thanks.

I will also take bids if the price listed is too low.

Meh, I can just help you, if you feel like donating that's up to you.

let's start with some questions, what do you need to know. I see you mention price, we can start if you provide me a budget.

That would be awesome. I will definitely donate for your time. I'm looking to spend somewhere in the range of $600-$800. The computer can be fairly bare bones, but I would like it to have an OS and some functionality. It'll be in a second location from my home where I don't have to pay for power and I'd like to use the computer for web browsing, word processing, and light usage other than solely mining. Second hand parts are fine, assuming I can get better value out of the system by going that route.

Well, for most mh/s v.s. $ the 5830 wins hands down. ( 280-300mh/s)

the real question is to get how many.

the general rule of thumb is that 2gb of RAM, a Sampron 140 CPU is standard business due to the seer price/clock speed ratio it has.
since this is NOT a dedicated mining machine you are welcome to bump it up the ram a bit, but the amd S140 OCs very well and should not be a problem for the light usage you listed.

The real question when comes down to building a Rig is 2x 5830s or 3+ 5830s.
each 5830 uses about 180W of power under full load, but as PSU price doesn't scale as well as slots, the choice is up to you.

for the 2x 5830 set up (one of my mining RIGS)
MB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130290
a 600W PSU of your choice I personally have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028 due to the fact I just don't trust those lesser known names (there's a $20 one with over 300 reviews that's pretty good on newegg, again; this is just me)
2x 5830 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102878&cm_re=5830-_-14-102-878-_-Product

Totaling ~450-500 bucks(shipping included etc), estimated mh/s 560(low), 600(high).

For the 3-4 5830 set up depends how many 5830 you end up putting in your board.
for 4x I recommand AT LEAST 1kw PSU.
MB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130274

4x 5830 will set you back around ~$800 which is your budget

this of course doesn't include things like monitor, keyboard/mouse, dvd drive to install OS, or HDD.

I highly recommand Linux due to the seer Mh/s Hashkill(a linux only miner) produces. but I won't go into detail unless you ask me bit more specific questions.

Cheers.

I've got a used mobo+cpu combo that would more than suit your needs, has room for 2 video cards (1x 16x pcie & 1x 1x pcie, you'd need an extender(.

Or a better mobo with 4 total pcie card slots, 2x 16x and 2x 1x.

PM me for info, I'm looking for ~1 btc for the CPU, 2 btc for the smaller mobo, and 4 btc for the bigger mobo (all including shipping).

-Garrett

EDIT: I've also got two PSUs you may want, and a small SSD and some sata hard drives. And DVD drives.

PSUs are 750w corsair and 430w rosewill, both only with light use. asking 1.5 btc for the 430w and 4 btc for the corsair.

SSD is 32gig Patriot. Asking 3 btc shipped.

hard drives are all laptop sized, 80gig, 160 gig and another 160 gig. Make offers on them, maybe 1btc for the 80, 2 btc for the 160 gigs (each)?

You know YouTube is a really great resource for information of Bitcoin mining.

I have found 6 Bitcoin miners who have videos up and running about it on YouTube.
