Just started today, wish I knew about this months ago. Running 5870(OC @ 950/1250) @ 390MHash/s.  Plan on using earned BTC to purchase a 2nd 5870(and another Artic Cooling Accelero Xtreme Cooler) to improve mining, haha ^_^

630mhash on a 5970.

With the increasing difficulty, I'm kinda glad I chose to buy bitcoin instead of adding a second, third and fourth 5970.

I'm just doing a bit of casual mining on my 6850 crossfire gaming rig.
Started a week ago, only just now have I got 1 BTC Sad
I'm slow, although I am only running it for two - three hours a day Smiley

looks like with  difficulty rising it may soon become unprofitable to mine in some countries with high electricity costs. (until BTC value rises as well)

better to relocate your rigs to india  Cheesy

I just started less than a week ago. I'm getting about 180-185 Mhash/s with my slightly overclocked 5770.

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

You may just want to buy BTC as you would invest in ounces of silver (I own both now).

I'm mining for about a week now, just testing how erverything works

currently running 1 5850 but there will be another Card in there soon

But due to the big difficulty increasement I am not so exited anymore as I was when i started Cheesy...

P.S.: where can i get an invitation for Bitcoinmarket.com
And is it possible that the Total Network Hashes just increased to ~13.000THash/s ? just after difficulty increasemend?

I started earlier this week on my Q6600 with a 295GTX. Needless to say I had Amazon overnight me a 6870 to replace the nVidia card Wink

I'm trying to get ufasoft running on my 24-core Xeon server, but it's giving me issues  Tongue

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 just plunked down the cash for 2x 5830. Hopefully Purolator Express gets them here by the weekend. Then I can join your esteemed ranks!

 I wish I had started a year and a half ago when I first heard of BTC mining. Oh well...split milk and all that.

I don't give a shit.

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.

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