I don't have the kind of computer with 4 top-of-the-line GPUs to solo mine. I have just an average computer. My question is can I make a significant amount of Bitcoins if I join a pool?

Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

Significant is a subjective term.


But most likely... no. CPU mining is near useless unless your power is free.

If you have an ATI/AMD card 5000-6000 series (some 4000) it might be worth it.
