From what I've heard, it seems like you can't just start mining with one computer. You literally have to have a decently-sized cluster of them in order to do any significant mining.

I think that at this point is better to wait for some ASIC product to hit the market. Investing into graphic boards or FPGA is a risk.

This is INCORRECT. Nvidia card performance is a third to a quarter of ATI's.

Look on Ebay for a Radeon HD 5970. People are dumping them right now because ASICs are hitting the market as we speak.
