Hello everyone how many bitcoins do you think you could mine if you joined a pool on just a normal computer let's just say the computers price range was $300-$500
I know it ways on allot of variables like what pool and the computers components but i am only asking for a typical guestimate Smiley

Dust or nothing. Well, for a computer that is between $300 - $500 (assuming USD), you dont stand a chance of mining anything. Joining a valid pool might give you some satoshi but when compared to the cost of electricity and the price of the computer, you are not making a profit. I'd suggest you to buy a mining hardware between $300 - $500 instead, it could bring you some profit. If you really want to mind using computer - because you dont like mining hardware or whatsoever - you can try mining Altcoin. One tip, there is some profit-switching altcoin mining pool. Smiley.

Have fun mining (if you really intended to)! Smiley.

Nearly none, even the days of GPU mining are gone. Think of it as burning down your computer bit by bit, if you even try it. Only ones that are profitable are mining specific hardware such as S X series, Antminer series, and even a small profitability is not guaranteed unless you have very ow or free electricity , cooling and or place to keep the hardware, and lastly the amount of miners you have.

tl;dr , any attempt at mining at the moment is useless.

I did it last year with a really good pc just for trying. I think I got an average of a few thousands satoshi everyday, so it's really dust of nothing xD

Wow! This is really something. Just that? A thousand satoshis. Was tempted to work out this my own. Anyway, thanks for the note.

You will likely never find a block especially if you are on a laptop or something, the chances probably a bit less than winning the Powerball.

You've been here a month and haven't bothered to read about dedicated miners?  Click on Mining, then Mining Hardware and read one of Dogie's threads Tongue

TO answer you Q, you get essentially nothing from a PC/Mac at present.

if you have a good gpu you can point at ethereum, and have more profit than an asic mining bitcoin, but this is for altcoin section

Don't bother trying to mine Bitcoin with anything but an ASIC. "Normal" computers have been outdated for Bitcoin mining for years, you'll just spend money on electric for pretty close to ZERO bitcoins mined.
 You'll barely even manage to mine dust.


 Scrypt is almost as bad, the last 2+ years.

 non-SHA256 non-Scrypt coins can be profitable with some computer setups, depending on the cost of your electric, but RoI is still iffy due to low returns.

Don't even think that you can mine using computers these days, at least not Bitcoins...
You will end up making only a few satoshis, that too if you are lucky and get some shares based on the power you will provide through your mining...
Price of computer doesn't matter at all as they are no more efficient in mining BTC anymore...

Minning with a cheap computer isn't a good think, you can broke your computer. For mining there are the Asics, that are designed to do this computational work. But if you want to try it, i think that you will receive from nothing to few satoshis or if you have more luck few bits. Also you will waste more electricity than money you will receive from your work.

I'd say that you could mine some dust that would range from 1 satoshi to 100 satoshis per day. Obviously, the electricity cost would be a lot higher than this Wink !

If he goes for a usb stick miner go with gekkoscience compac.  It's about same or less then ebay U2's and you can order direct from Sidehack.  And instead of 2 GH you will get 8 pretty easy.  If you have good hub and y cable you are talking about 16 GH+.   

And be away usb sticks are more for fun/lotto mining.  So ROI is unlikely.   But if you go that route for sure get the compac.  As far as regular computers mining GPU/CPU on btc those day's are dead.

I have bought it expensive...just for the fun...
I was not interested in a risky seconde hand.
Now i get it...I keep it.

if someone is interested to comine with me...i will sent him the satoshi back

Not sure what you mean.  The one I recommended was going with the Compac right now, best usb stick for the money.   You can order direct from sidehack.

If your talking about U2's there is a reason you cant get direct anymore... they are obsolete unless using for learning.  Most lotto miners it makes more sense sell U2's and buy Compacs 2 GH vs possibly 16+ GH is just a huge difference in speed.

you are right...
but If I sell it because it is obselete...why should someone buy it if it is obselete? (lol)
And so far i'm not interested in an other usb stick.
