I personally like Slush's pool (mining.bitcoin.cz) , and BTCguild (BTCGuild.com). Slush has a 2% fee while BTCGuild is free, but I like Slush's pool enough for the fee not to bother me. Deepbit is a good pool too, but has the highest fee at 3%, but Id suggest staying away for the time being, because deepbit has too much marketshare to be healthy for bitcoin as a whole.

So you choose to pay fees while you could pay none just because 1 user writes he likes it? Shocked

Anyways, I recommend Eligius, automatic payouts without having to do anything (if you stop mining after 1 week you receive the remainder) > all.

Btw. it's perfectly possible wo mine in several pools at once to decrease variance.

https://bitfinex.com <-- leveraged trading of BTCUSD, LTCUSD and LTCBTC (long and short) - 10% discount on fees for the first 30 days with this refcode: x5K9YtL3Zb

u mine for money right?! and then u choose a server where u will get less money XD
don't know why there are even some ppl who join pools with fees. but if u compare deepbit.net with 3000gh/s vs eligius.st with 300gh/s the world seems to be full of philanthropists.

anyway i recommend eligius.st too, not because i like it *g, but: no fees, no registration needed, lots of stats, automatic payout, no mining for a week and the remains get paids out!
downside: need 1btc for paidout or wait a week, in the last couple days some blocks were invalid.

also for me, it has the highest sharevalue:
6,984*10^9 BTC average for every share submitted eligius.st
6,465*10^9 BTC average for every share submitted bitcoins.lc
3,862*10^9 BTC average for every share submitted deepbit.net they have pps too @ 5,129..*10^9 BTC (which i should have used *G)
those are the 3 i use. i tested bitcoinpool.com too, but since i lost 1/4 of my earning to fees...

mineco.in is my personal favourite right now. It pays out absolutely everything including transaction fees.

I think for a newbie, a free pool is best to get your feet "wet" lol.

I love puns. But seriously, Mine at a free one first, get your first pay out (0.01 or more in some places) and you can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that everything is working.

Then, join a pool you have researched.  I just learned today that Reddit has a pool. Cool.
