I've been lurking the forums, watching people post hashrates of 300+ and such. Then I look at my GUIMiner and see it's pulling about 5.8Mhashes/s.

I'm currently running one 9500Gt, A dual Core AMD 5800+ at 3.0ghz, and Windows 7.
I'd do it on my Linux but I honestly dont think it'd make a difference.
So what am I missing, is my card just not up to stock? I mean I know it's -old- but where are all these high speeds comming from that everyone else talks about?

Nope, not worth it (over costs of electricity)

If you have free electricity, than well, every hash you can throw is a net gain  Wink

I have one of those cards -- it's how I started out last month Smiley

NVidia doesn't do NEARLY as well as ATI. It has to do with how the cards are designed, and what Bitcoin mining requires of a graphics card.

And yes, that card is a bit old on top of it. I bought mine 2 or 3 years ago for $70 I think.

Everyone here has basically the "cream of the crop" when it comes to mining-friendly graphics cards. Many of those cards are out of stock to 95% of the population -- everyone's been buying them up!

Hm, I was wondering I left the thing on all night and barely pulled .005 btc from btc guild..
Thanks for the info guys.
I guess it wasnt worth the 14 hours I left it going. Then again my computer is on 24x7 anyways? Does that make a difference?

According to my calculations, you could make up to 9 cents a day with that card, assuming electricity is 11 cents per KwH and the card & PC only draw 76 watts.

Once again, thank you all for the information.
I'll just hold my accounts and wait till I have money to kill on a good ATI card. The Bitcoin wiki has answers that that though, unless you'd like to throw in personal suggestions folks?
