Hello I am just getting into Bitcoin mining(wish i would have done it a couple years ago when first heard of it) and I am using GUI miner with a GTX680 and it starts up and runs fine, updates to the pool and everything but when i hit stop mining it freezes my computer completely. Any ideas?

I would suggest getting a more powerful ATI Radeon GPU, but that really won't be worth the effort now that the BTC reward has been sliced in half.  You'd be better off investing in an FPGA miner or one of the upcoming ASIC mining devices.  You can connect these to your computer and mine much more efficiently than with a GPU.  I'm currently mining with four GPU rigs and the payout is miniscule.  Before "halving day" (November 28), I was earning about 0.3 BTC every 24 hours, but now I don't generate more than .13 BTC in the same period. 

I have pre-ordered a Butterfly Labs Jalapeno ASIC miner that I hope will arrive in January 2013, but until then, I have to be content with very small payouts and am looking to sell my graphics cards when the Jalapeno finally arrives (if it ever does).

Good luck and good mining!
