Hi.

I've just started out mining, and I'm having a hard time deciding between solo and pool mining. I've started out with pool mining, at deepbit. I get 4-5% stales, which I understand is a lot.

I have one computer with an ATI Radeon 5870M, one with an ATI Radeon 5850 and one with an ATI Radeon 5770. I only have the first computer mining so far, but I plan to get the others up and running as well. This will lead to a total hashrate of about 600 Mhash/s.

So, with about 600 Mhash/s of processing power, is it worth it to switch over to solo mining? Or should I stick to pool mining?

You should probably stick with a pool with under 10 Ghash (or more), in my opinion.

Evens out the luck.
