Within the last 5 minutes i have learned about Bitcoin, skimmed through some threads and have a very rough idea of how it all works but before i look further into this i would like to know if my Rig is good enough to Mine... Still not quite sure what "Mining" means but ill soon find out.
My Rig was built just after the new year and it was my first custom computer. I was on a budget of £500 and i feel that i made a fairly decent gaming rig for the computer, still waiting to have any problems. Anyway the spec's.
Mobo - ASUS M4A79XTD EVO
CPU - AMD Athlon II x4 640
GPU - Sapphire HD 6850 1GB
RAM - Corsair 4GB
PSU - Corsair 500w
HDD - 500GB
Any suggestions on how i should get start would be much appreciated! Look forward to your answers.
mining.bitcoin.cz has some information, any PC is good enough to mine, though obviously not every PC is worth buying specifically for mining
With that card you should get some reasonable income
