I really want to get into using FPGA boards for mining. but not many places sell them ? before I spend between 100Euro - 300Euro can anybody confirm these work for Mhashing ?

^Although I will agree with the above about basic, this was their first post, and butterflylabs has yet to prove they have any product.

@OP

No idea if it's feasible to mine that way or not, but check out https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=76.0

That section of the forums should have the info you're looking for.

This model wouldn't be a good choice for mining. I'm not even sure their is mining software for it.

This is supported :

But I wouldn't buy them at this price. At the current BTC price and difficult these quad SLX150 would make ~100€/month and it will probably decrease in the following months (at least you can't bet that it will remain at this level).

I wouldn't buy 4x SLX150 FPGAs boards at more than 400-500€ and 2x SLX150 boards at more than 200-250€.

Trade BTC for €/$ at bitcoin.de (referral), it's cheaper and faster (acts as escrow and lets the buyers do bank transfers).

Unfortunately I can't post in any other area yet !

As for the Software I have it ready to go already via this topic.  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137934.0
And as it will use my Raspberry Pi to run up to 4 FPGA boards I think it could be cost effective on the electricity usage anyway.

I just need to find some well priced and proven FPGA boards.

The asics are yet to be proven or shipped as far as i can find out. !
