If you've set everything up right, then yes... you'd better have a ridiculously powerful ATI gpu though, if you're solo mining...  From what I've heard, multi-GPU setups are best.

with 900MH/s, you don't even expect a block every month at current difficulty.  You could potentially go months without ever finding a single block while difficulty continually increases.

You are much better off in a pool with only 900-1300MH/s

There is a calculator somewhere for that, you input your hashrate and the current difficulty and it tells you when you will get block for sure, when you got 50% chance of winning and i think a few other points.

I'm not sure where, perhaps you can find it on the wiki? If not, try Google

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

Wanna gimme some BTC for any or no reason? 1FmvtS66LFh6ycrXDwKRQTexGJw4UWiqDX Smiley

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!
