I have a AMD 3.0Ghz Quad core processor, GeForce 8500GT, and 4 gigs of ddr2 RAM. I am using GUIMiner and deepbit as my pool. The max I am seeing is 2.2Mhash/s using my GeForce as the device.

This seems really low to me, even though it's an old card. Is this what I should expect? Any suggestions to increase this and get more bang out of what I have?

Thanks!

That's just about right for a CPU.  You can't mine on a GeForce 8500GT, I tried that one also.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

8500GT isn't listed but an 8600GT gets 5.5 Mhash/s

so sounds like it could be right.

You should be able to get 4MH's out of the amd.  Try using Ufasoft's miner.

The 8500GT barely does CUDA.. may not even at all.
