Hello.

Yesterday I learned about Bitcoin from my friend. I'd read lot of information about it right now, so I decided to buy a computer for mining. I'm just interesting about it and I don't think to make a big money by this. My old desktop is old and now I using notebook, but I think new desktop with high performance would be cool for me even I would drop mining.

So, I want to ask you about simple configuration for desktop for mining Bitcoin now and for just using it in work and gaming later. Thanks.

I just made a thread about a similar question that might be able to help you

http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=12442.0

from what I hear the 5830 is the best card for the money, if you're trying to spend more obviously you can, or you can scale that build down to one card for now until you decide you want more

Just for Mining:

AMD Sempron 140
ASRock 880G Extreme3
2 GIGs of DDR3 Ram
A Case
a 4 GB USB Stick or the Ubuntu Operating System
up to Three ATI Radeon HD5850 Graphic Cards (the more Cards, the More Hashingpower you have)

And a Power Supply with at least 80+ silver Certificate (gold is better) with around ((Number of Graphic cards*150 Watts)+250W). So für One Card, a 400W power supply is sufficient


For other uses (Gaming) too: Replace the Processor with a AM3 Quadcore processor, Add 2, or better 6 GIGS of Ram and buy a harddrive and a DVD RAM Drive and you are fine.



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