Just wondering how many actual miners there are in the newbie community...

I've been mining for about a month

Mining at 290MHash/s here. Starting in early April at 2BTC/day, and stopped because the price was only $1/BTC (I actually sold 23BTC@1USB ea). Not my best decision ever.

If I've helped you out, donations appreciated - 1G5NuGN9D6Vax6pGfqQJqPvww1CCJQPjhe

Started about a week ago, which I would have started sooner.  Mining about a BTC a day at 650Mhash/s. 

I drink it up!

Have had the GUI GPU Miner up runing at about 10.8 max Mhash/s for over a day now.
Gonna get a CPU miner going if I can, and it gets at least 3Mhash/s.
Within a month I hope to buy a rig for about 300$ that will get ~250Mhash/s.

I started back on 2/16/2011, been adding ahrdware slowly since then.

up to about 1.6GH/sec right now, with 5x 6870's, 1x 5830 and the leftover cpu power for the 3 boxes those cards are in.

that depends on your cost of electricity, and how many hashs you can crank out.
it costs me about USD$ 0.30/hr or USD$7.25 per day, so as long as I make at least 1 BTC I'm coming out ahead.

At 1.6GH/sec, I can make at least 2.5BTC, so it is possible to make money

Depending on your electricity cost. Where I am, I get free electricity (and the PC is on 24/7 anyway, so the difference from idling to mining isn't that big).

Unfortunately I'm only mining at around 4mhash/s. Kind of useless, so I guess I'll stop when I hit 0.001 BTC. Yay, a tenth of a cent!

The first thing I did was figure out mining and get a miner and connect to a pool, took me a bit to figure it all out, but now I'm working on downloading the bittyblocky stuff so my wallet works


Oh great... now I can only post once a minute, except when I get the error saying I posted less than 60 seconds ago, that counts towards a post... so I have to wait another full 60 seconds before trying again, hope I don't wait 59.8 seconds... *breaks out the egg timer*

Sorry, don't mean to complain, the trolls were bad, but I think this might be worse, all the /smart/ people knew how to ignore the trolls

I'm assuming you are using only CPU mining.  you might try the ufasoft miner.  
easiest way to use it is to download the latest guiminer,  https://github.com/downloads/Kiv/poclbm/guiminer-20110609.exe
just ignore the errors about no openCL drivers not found, you dont need it for CPU mining.

No, I'm apparently using my NVIDIA GT 320M with RPCminer CUDA. Not very good speeds were posted on the wiki, so I'm assuming it's going at the max speed. Kind of funny how bad a 6 month laptop is.

on my old 8800gt.. cuda really sucked compared to the default miner. you may want to stop it and just try the
default which is pcolbm or whatever.

A laptop will never be a good miner, you know how laptops are generally shitty for playing games, it's the same limitation, you got a crappy video card compared to what you could get on a desktop computer


Also, do rpcminer-cpu as well, compare speeds, it's possible that it might be a little faster, on my Mac Mini it was... well, compared to 4way, not really sure what 4way is though...

CPU miner (i5 core 2.26GHz) is doing 1800khash/s, not experiencing any slowdown like the CUDA one did. I'm just thinking that laptops arn't as powerful.  Sad

OK, this is weird. I'm apparently getting 5.8mh/s on CPU, only 4.1mh/s on the NVIDIA, for a total of 10mh/s. I'll play around with it. Also no lag! o-o

.
Are you a newbie starting to mine?
Are you a newbie looking to build a trusted reputation?

I'll offer to buy some of your mining output.
And, together, we can start building reputations of trust.

I'm a newbie, too, but not a miner.
And I'm willing to take a bit of risk with other newbies who are mining and who want to sell Bitcoins.

I've given lots of thought to how to build trust, when starting from zero.
I'm willing to put money into testing those methods.

Send a private message to discuss details.
Or let's discuss in the open Newbie section of this forum.

not mining... I thought I read mining takes quite a bit of electricity costs that prohibit any real gain???    Huh

Get yourself a kill-a-watt and see for yourself. With a few calculations you can determine profitability as well as learn some new things in the process.

Time is money. This means that if you have spare time, you can use it to make money.

Yea, I've been wanting a kill-a-watt for a while now, they're just so darn cool.... and I know it's only like 16 bucks, maybe once I get a REAL miner going I'll grab one with some extra funds...

I am mining on two computers since 10 days. I was lucky to bought a 5770 for each for gaming before, so i could start without any cost.

For now, i am on the side of that people who say, buying mining hardware doesnt pay off.

I must say that, cause i want a low difficult, you know Wink

I've known about bitcoin for a while now, but after i saw it hit 2$ i HAD to get involved. I ordered a 5970 off Ebay and built a dedicated miner strait away. Haven't really had much of a grip on the workings of the economy until more recently, now i try to both day trade and mine, failing pretty hard as a trader though.  Undecided

If anyone needs help setting up a headless miner with Debian 6 let me know.

i have been mining since the 7th of june, started on my laptops cpu, moved to my friends gaming rig he built last month, now i went and got a 6870 for 200 and a 700 watt psu for 50. put it into an old desktop i wasnt using now im getting 300mhash/s. my friends computers getting 211 mhash/s. i set up both the computers on deepbit.net. i wish i had been more active on the forum instead of reading mostly. i was a lurker, now im considered a troll. it kind of sucks but oh well.

you know, a teamspeak or ventrillo server might be a good idea.

HI - been lurking in the shadows for a month or so, but this is my first post  Wink

I've been mining for two weeks on a couple of CPU's and a laptop GPU but was only collecting about 0.02btc per day (maxing out at 7 mhash/sec).

My old 2006 Mac Pro really needed a bit of an upgrade so amongst a few other bits I found a XFX HD5870 for 120 (UK).
Tested that on and off for a day or two, but was disappointed to only get about 114 mhash/sec in OS X. Since then have discovered that Apples open CL implementation isn't the most efficient out there.

I've now installed Ubunutu on a partition, and overclocked / underclocked the 5870 to core 950 Mhz / Memory 300 Mhz.
I use Phoenix with the phatk kernal and now pull in a respectable and stable 420 Mhash/sec at 75C.

I've been running with that setup for around 24hrs now and mined just under 1BTC on Slush's pool. I think this will drop dramatically in a day or two when the difficulty rises... although I still don't really understand what drives that.

I'm sceptical by nature and to be honest I really don't know how bitcoins will go in the future, especially after the past few days, but one can hope. My main target at the moment is to cover the cost of GPU and electricity whilst slowing padding out my wallet with a few BTCs.

So far I've really enjoyed the learning process and tinkering to get to where I am.
I now know a little about bitcoin, overclocking, and Linux where previously I knew zilch, so for me its already worth it. Plus my Mac has a shiny new upgrade and is now a semi decent graphics machine too (I spend half my day in photoshop, so the GPU really helps)  Wink

Cheers all  Wink

My regular desktop CPU does about 2.5 Mh/s, so after an hour to see if it would get any faster I turned it off as a waste of time.

But it would be nice to see a how-to for noobs who aren't computer whizzes, which says how to do it. All the explanations I've seen go over my head.

I've been mining for a month now and reading here the whole time about mining and BTC in general.

I'm stuck with an Nvidia GTX 470 for the time being...maybe in another month that will change, depending on what things look like.

Mining at 60Mhash/s with a GTX460, just for fun really, I love the idea and could be very disruptive and exciting in the future.

If you have a gaming rig anyway, you've got nothing to lose really, electricity is cheap. It's a bit disconcerting to see the pool performance rising from 1500Gh/s to 1850Gh/s though.  What will it be tomorrow?

I started two days ago, I have pretty much every machine and spare part running for a total of 1Ghash/s.  I'm not looking to make a "quick buck" more than I think it is interesting that I can make my existing hardware pay for itself and enjoy the process.  (I've rebuilt all my machines so far, cleaned up their cables for airflow, etc.  It's been a blast)

I have been mining for almost a month now. But I only have one ATI Radeon HD 5750 and it sits in my iMac.
This only gives me ~ 74 MH/s. I figure if I had it running under Arch Linux instead of OS X I could get twice as much.  Undecided

Unfortunately I'm only mining at around 4mhash/s. Kind of useless, so I guess I'll stop when I hit 0.001 BTC. Yay, a tenth of a cent!

Actually at the current price it'd be $.02. That's my two cents on this issue... hah see what I did there...

I'll leave now.

Been following Bitcoin for a while now, but decided to jump in.  Doing mining, testing things out, and really happy with the results, but I'm running a laptop, so no real expectations.  Hoping to buy a mining rig in the coming months and see if I can really make anything happen with this.

Been mining for a month....looks like the large increase in mining is going to cause a pretty severe difficulty correction soon.

Not just an increase in mining, but an increase in the quality of mining hardware. Currently about 9.71 blocks are being solved every hour, and the system is supposed to keep it around 6, so I think we'll see a pretty big increase in difficulty, but with the volatility of the market on Mt. Gox right now, we don't know if the value of mining will go up or down.

I started mining yesterday, the same day I discovered Bitcoin. Not sure how profitable it will be, but I thought it would be fun to try. Personally, I think the heyday of mining is long gone, but there still is money to be made from it. The people who really profited were those who mined in the early days and kept their Bitcoins.

Been mining since Wednesday.  Grin

I love it. I've learned so much in so short a time. Decided to get in when it was at $8.50 so running to $30 was exciting. The fall means nothing to me really.

Being involved in this in what I feel is still near the very beginning is fascinating. It's like wildcatting for oil and gold!!!

No way. Imo, we are still near the beginning. What if BTC goes to $500 and you saved your BTC. What if you saved 1200 in a year?

If you had $600K in BTC would you feel the same way?

I started out mining, few day trials on each pool. After that I did some calculations and found for me at least and the equipment that I own that it just simply isn't practical.

I found out about BitCoin 2 weeks ago.

The day after I found out about it I was already mining.

I am a programmer but learning about Gaming Hardware.

Seems those with a background in building Gaming Hardware
have the edge, so not exactly a level playing field, but all the
info it out there for those who look.  It would be more difficult
for a hardware head to learn programming

Pretty straightforward stuff, but want to get into liquid cooling to
increase overclocking

I am pushing 660Mhash/s with my two cards now, but will probably only be mining for 1 more difficulty increase.  With the bitcoin market as volatile as it is right now, there is so much more profit to be made buying low and selling high.  And I expect the difficulty increases to be MASSIVE, so that basically only the people who went all out are making any money off of it.

I drink it up!

well i just discovered bitcoin and mining about 12 hours ago. So after a few hours getting my hardware happy I started mining. A long time ago i was a pro gamer and have always used laptops. Most people have this thing that laptops are crappy and etc. I would have to agree that Most laptops are. My laptop isnt included among the crappy. Currently mining at about 210mh/s which from what i have read isnt too bad with a single 5870. The only thing i havent figured out quite yet is how to get the coins i have earned into my account on mtgox

Been mining since Wednesday on my core 2 duo at a whopping 6MH/s  Cheesy I started with minerd but that only gave me about 990kH/s. Changed over to ufasoft and now get just over 3MH/s per core. Five days of testing and messing around has gotten me 5 bitcents  Grin When I get time this week I hope to be up to 200MH/s gpu mining after I rebuild my other system.

Probably costed more than they where worth in electricity.

So don't start out with 6990's. Start out with a couple 5830's and move up from there. Not many are starting with 6990's.

I'm a newbie, started out about two weeks ago and finally registered for this forum.

I have 2-5830s (an xfx and a sapphire) , and 2-5570s

I can't get the 5830's over 255mh/s, but I've been using the AMD overclocking built in to Catalyst.  I'll have to follow everyone else's lead on underclocking the memory to get it higher.

The 5770's are doing 195mh/s each

I won't be overclocking too much, and I don't plan on over-volting.  I don't want to burn the chips up or get gatewear, so I will overclock but only a little bit, maybe 5-10%

Stock my 5830's did 230 on guiminer

It seems to me like mining is worthless unless you have a large rig or set of rigs already established to beat the electricity-bitcoin worth spread. You must be scaled. Seems like too much risk at this point. You might as well just trade if you think the BTC will increase in value. With all the GPUs sold out online, seems like mining is not worth all the trouble. Or, you could join a pool. Don't know much about mining cost-effectiveness right now though, maybe someone here can educate me. Would love to learn the history of mining competition.

I have been mining on a 5850, getting around 285MHps, just added a 6990 for $730AUD (~$770USD), so now im over or around 1GHps.

When this card pays itself off I'll buy another, and continue to reinvest all profits into mining, until either:
A. its no longer profitable, in which case I can sell the hardware at a profit on ebay (except for keeping a kick-ass gaming rig for me);
B. I make enough per day to live confortably off of mining

We shall see...

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

Don't quit your day job. This sucker has an expiration date on mining. Or hold your coins and pray for $1,500 BTC. Congrats on getting the 6990, seem to be hiding under very large rocks state side.

Only Dual GTX 460 1GB's at home sadly, pushing around 158Mhash/s combined.
But have about 17 computers with GTX 570's to use for a few hours some days, so will definitely be seeing how much I can pump out with that XD

Hey Hey I'm fresh off the boat. Still pretty clueless about everything except some basics that I've picked up yesterday. First I need to read a lot more on the subject, because I see there is tons of people already saying to be careful.


Right now I have 2 questions if anyone could point me to the right direction

who/what determines difficulty and is there an approximate rate I could calculate it for the near term to run the numbers for my farm.

since I'm in Europe prices on 6690 and 5850 are a lot higher than in USA I figured out that I get the most M-hash/sec vs Watt vs price from Sapphire HD 6790, for 130 euros a pop. Thing is I didn't see anyone using this card on a massive scale so I'm not sure if there are any other difficulties with this option.

Is my info for 6790 correct :(at stock)

Approx 220 M-hash/sec
Approx 0.39 ฿/day
150 Watt



Thank you

I am playing with it. I am doing pooled cpu mining with mining.bitcoin.cz. I am only getting like 2.5 Mh/s from both machines combined. I changed the CPUMiner 1.0.1 algorithm slighty to test something, seemed to get results more often, but I can't really tell. I like the idea behind the crypto and computing power. Mostly the computer science behind it as opposed to actually using it. If I could get the equipment to mine faster, I would try it. After about 16 hours of pooled cpu mining, I have 0.00124921 BTC. About $0.03 cents on the current market. It's fun to play with anyway.

If the exchange rate rises with difficulty you may not be late.

Started about a week ago, almost exclusively CPU mining since I'm running mostly low-end nVidia and a get more from the CPUs than the GPUs.  That said, I'm just setting up a couple 6970 rigs and am in the process of optimizing.  I've got a few questions but haven't hit the newbie threshold to post any questions in the relevant mining threads.  Only a couple more to go!  Currently mining at 500-800 MH/s.

Are any of you Miners doing this as a Solo miner?

I was wondering this as well. It'd be nice for some more info on what pools people are using, if at all, with their rigs.

I'm personally thinking of getting a 5850 for an old tower and starting mining. Is it worth solo mining with about 320Mh/s? On the off-chance that you do mine a block solely, that's paid off the card and left you with quite a nice amount more.

I pool with mining.bitcoin.cz as it's not practical for hobby miners to mine solo.

My setup is a single GTX460 that mines when im not playing vidya games Smiley

I have spare boards and psu's, as well as a 8800gtx and a hd3850 from older computers that I have started to rebuild to mine.

I did do something with questionable ethics and i honestly don't care, but i'll do anything in the name of "science" and experimentation Smiley

Go to Frys Electronics, buy the equipment you need to mine for some serous time, mine for 28 days and return your equipment for full price, minus the intrest you accrued on your CC.

BOOM instant profit, no investment other than elec and intrest.  That'll get you your first high end video card...

at least that's how i did it...

but i already had an amazing mobo and 1200 W psu sitting around....

First found out about this like first week of June.

Wish I had known about it earlier, but I've been running my 6970 since about the 8th when I figured out pool mining.

Sucks that the difficulty went up, I went from 2/3's of a coin just under 1/2 a coin a day, running about 380 Mhash/sec.

Even coming in at this late stage in the game should let you recoup at hardware investment costs. I'm building a new Crosshair V system with three 6970's (maybe 1.2 Ghash/sec) and I'm fairly certain that I'll break even on it and have a nice gaming system all paid for in the end if the market doesn't totally collapse between now and the end of the summer.

I was debating solo mining but I think I'm going to stick to pooled mining after the difficulty increase. And it's going to increase every two weeks, they say? The party is not yet over, but we're definitely late. Enjoy it while it lasts. Smiley

I am the proud miner of 20 BTC since June 9/2011!

I first found out about Bitcoin sometime during early winter, back in 2010. A friend at my university told me about it, and managed to get me interested. I put my server computer to work and mined for a while before I got too lazy about it, thinking it wasn't really worthwhile. Now I regret that decision.

Since then, I 'rediscovered' Bitcoin early this month, as the value had increased by quite a bit. I set two computers to mine, one with a 5870 and another with a 5850, but I was in a bit of a hurry to go visit my parents and attend a funeral, so I was unable to optimize the setup properly before I left town. Regardless, I can reach roughly 600 - 700 (5870 at 310 - 360, 5850 at 290 - 340) megahashes per second without a lot of optimizations, so there's that. Tomorrow I'll finally be returning to my own apartment, though, and I can start fiddling around.

I managed to set this up on 11.06.11, but there has been some downtime every now and then. Regardless, I've managed to acquire 2.5 bitcoins since then.

I'm not, don't have the proper hardware. Maybe I will in the future if I ever upgrade to a nice gaming rig.

I am mining.  Got two 5870s running 24/7 using free electricity! 

I just started mining too (with two 5830s), but have to pay for electricity :-(

Even so, imho it's still worth mining - at least for me I can always use the equipment for actual graphics work.

I've also ascribed to having multiple sources of income. At one point, all my little streams of income amounted to a decent monthly income. It's surprising how $100-450/month on multiple monthly incomes really add up.

I opted out of corp/mainstream work and lifestyle a while ago and have never regretted it. Bitcoin mining is just another (little) stream for now.

I have been mining about 40%? of the time for 11 days. Received .76 bitcoins so far.
I pool with mining.bitcoin.cz as it's not practical for hobby miners to mine solo.

My setup is a single GTX460 that mines when im not playing vidya games Smiley

I have spare boards and psu's, as well as a 8800gtx and a hd3850 from older computers that I have started to rebuild to mine.

http://i55.tinypic.com/fc430z.jpg

Also, I mine (process transactions) to contribute to the bitcoin community. It's a win/win Cheesy



What is that compared to an ATI Radeon 4200? My window shows the same amount of blocks as yours but only 8 connections and nothing in the display. Mine just looks..well..blank. I have a feeling that I may have set mine up incorrectly.

I'll do a booty wiggle for a free Satoshi   ( (( (( )))) (((( )) )) )

If you really are paranoid about those transactions, you should blur the dates and times as well. They could be used to track down these transactions on blockexplorer. It wouldn't be easy, of course, but it's doable. Still, if you want to remain safe. You know. You can never know who could be out to get you.

I've occasionally read about Bitcoin over the past couple months on Slashdot, so yesterday I figured I'd start playing around with it.  Conveniently, I have a Radeon HD 5850 that usually sits idle.  I have just over 0.1 BTC from slush's pool after mining most of today (with another 0.1 in estimated + unconfirmed), and nearly 0.03 from being on deepbit's pool for a while last night.  Not getting rich any time soon, but I'm curious to see how this all pans out.

I'm curious how many of the hardcore miners over the past several months have blown out their video cards.  I went with the suggestion of underclocking, dropping my memory speed from 1000 Mhz to 500 Mhz and the core from 725 Mhz to 550 Mhz.  Dropping the core speed gives me a performance hit, but is that worthwhile to further keep temperatures down?  I know that excessive heat is often what kills hardware that's pushed for performance.

I'm planning to start mining this weekend.. I have a lot of computer parts laying around but I unfortunatly always favored Nvidia cards.. I've an ATX card and some fans coming from Newegg this friday so I'm going to try mining out.  Its too bad all the good cards are so hard to get.  Tongue

Been mining for a few days only, since the recent media articles on bitcoin.
My Nvidia 8800GTX was the shit 4 years ago, at $500-600, but it mines at only 26 MH/s, miner software are optimized only for Radeon's stream processors, not Nvidia CUDA.

I was planning to build a new PC later this year, might as well do it now, using Radeon cards this time.
I'd love to use 2-3 6990s but they are out of stock, so I'll aim for 1 GH/s instead of 2.

I know.. every card I look for is sold out everywhere.  I hope its not all bitcoin miners buying them all because the difficulty is going to go through the roof.

I'm building a mining rig now.. I already had a pretty decent gaming PC but with an Nvidia card so I am not even going to try mining with that.  Plus its got way too much CPU and hard drives I don't want to burn up.  It seems like purpose built miners where you downclock everything but the GPU to save watts is the way to go.

Started this week - at 2.7GHash/sec.
But heat problems and power overload of whole building (3 times since I started - I added like 3KW of consumption with 24/7 conditioner) makes me regret my decision a little.


Not to burst your bubble but you're probably going to regret it even more when difficulty increases today.

Nah, this is expected :-)

just bought 3 x 6990's(2000 MH/s) to start mining(haven't set it up yet), I think im too late tho' I just calculated with the difficulty increase it is going to take awhile to break even on the 3 cards .... Sad plus of cause electricity costs. I would suggest to buy bitcoins instead of buying equipment for mining...

It seems like there would be an incentive for current miners to discourage new miners in order to slow down difficulty increases so I take all the doom and gloom predictions with a grain of salt

Actually if you take it as a "Fact" you will be a lot better off... doesn't take much to find these stats out your self....

as a matter of fact you stated a "Fact" your self with the difficulty increasing, Saying that it is still making a profit for those who have already broke even with there equipment investment, but new people buying equipment... well its a fact that it wont make you quick money and should pray that the value doesn't drop. Also it has been noted many times this spike is just a bubble... at the end of the day there wont be less miners so the difficulty will stay the same or increase, but it will never drop, I don't see why current miners who have paid there investment would want to stop(decrease the difficulty) while they are still making a slight profit after power expenses. As for buying bit coins.. If your a gambler and feel lucky then go ahead and buy them, it will make your more money than mining..

Currently mining at 56Mh Sad(

I hear you there man. I have a GTX 460 that I am getting 80Mh/s out of and a 8800 GTX that is only getting about 29Mh/s.

I ordered a 6950 for $209.99, but it wouldn't boot into Windows or Linux, I RMA'd that and it should arrive back to Newegg.com tomorrow so I am looking to get my replacement by Wednesday next week.
I also ordered a 5830 for $109.99 from Newegg.com when they were in stock, I got lucky. That one will arrive today! I am so excited. This one will replace the 8800 GTX.
I'm getting a used computer for free tomorrow from a friend that runs a computer shop which is where the 6950 will go.
I won't be replacing the GTX 460 because it is my main computer which I also use for gaming.

Then I will go from 110Mh/s combined to about 650-700Mh/s combined.

No luck with 4-pin molex -> 6-pin PCIe adapters? That sucks, I feel for you man. There's very little worse-feeling than coming to the end of a project and getting waylaid by some small, seemingly meaningless detail that was nevertheless overlooked.

I was mining for about a week on an older nvidia card and a core 2 duo. Just got my new video card and it's going 5 times as fast and that's without trying any tweaks.

the electricity prices are high, btc prices kinda crashed, i have only geforce graphic cards, difficulty is rising so its not looking that bright. and getting a new pc(my old one is still quite good except at mining) will cost at least 500, so it's quite an expensive gamble i'm not willing to take.

I need an new box...

June 16, 2011, 07:24:34 PM

No luck with 4-pin molex -> 6-pin PCIe adapters? That sucks, I feel for you man. There's very little worse-feeling than coming to the end of a project and getting waylaid by some small, seemingly meaningless detail that was nevertheless overlooked.

It's an Optiplex 745 so it only has SATA connectors, no molex connectors. It's always that last little detail that gets you  Undecided The spare psu I have laying around does have a PCIe connector, but it's only 250w. Trying to mine with that and any (semi) serious card and the computer would likely burn down, fall over, and sink into the swamp  Grin

Just wondering how many actual miners there are in the newbie community...

I've been mining for about a month


Getting about 0.02 BTC a day at 16,400 Khash/s.

I'm more of a services-sector kind of guy, so I don't really have plans to enhance my rig.

I started mining about 2 weeks ago.  I got a radeon 6850 and I get ~200M#'s.  Its okay I guess.  I make about 1btc every 3 to 4 days on Deepbit.  almost at 6 now.  I don't run it 24/7 though.  I tend to mess with settings.  I got it up to 235M# with overclocking but I had to keep the fan at 100% to keep the temp stable.  It ran hot (about 70 degrees) so I turned off the OC.  I'd rather not burn out the card.

I'm mining second week now. Didin't go crazy and buy highend mining rig for this, just using the spare clock cycles of my gaming pc. It gets ~400 Mhash/s with oc'd 6950@6970 radeon. The market is too risky for me to invest a dime for except electricity, but I made about 100 usd at first week while mining BTC. Now the system is pointed towards namecoins, those seems to give better returns with current trading rates.

Based on the exponential growth in difficulty, one would have to assume that quite a lot of newbies are mining.

Yes certainly a lot of new folks have gotten in the game, likely without considering the costs, difficulty increases, and volatility in exchanges, looking to make quick $.
 I'm doing it for fun with very little startup costs (had a bunch of spare parts/ old gaming rigs) and if there is some money in it down the road that will be a nice bonus.

That and existing miners adding to their rigs. Getting into mining is like trying to open up a burger joint with your friends next to a McDonald's. Better have the goods. And that includes iron guts. But don't immediately move to discouragement. Look at namecoin mining as well.

Remember though that higher prices brings more miners which leads to greater difficulty yielding less BTC which means you make less..........     Undecided

I don't think there's any "real" newbie community.
We are all part of the larger bitcoin community, with the only difference being that we have to wait for our n00b status to be lost before we can post in the other sections.  Cool

Having said that, I've been mining long before I even created an account on the Bitcoin forums.  Grin

i'm uber new to mining.

started less than a week ago with a 4870 i already had.
that went away and helped buy a 6970.
it's doing the average for a 6970.  just underclocked the memory.

have tried 3 pools and the first 2 were fine, the one i'm on now, i'll hold on untill the round is over then i'm pretty sure i'll head back to one of the first two Smiley

interesting.

I managed to get one of my friends to start mining as well. His 4870 isn't getting him all that much though.

As far as my mining goes, I've been trying to push my 5770's overclock. At 960 MHz on the core, I can get a bit over 200 Mhash/s if I use the -f1 flag or similar in addition to -v and -w128.
