Sorry took my screen shots but can't figure out how to upload them to the site the image button only does this.

Thanks foader, I figured it out last night. It's weird, the games (I tried both) do seem to affect cudaminer, although I didn't get a drastic increase. Which switches are you using to launch it? It was hard to make it run because it was crashing a lot. But then it went to a bit over 70 MH - before it was a bit over 60 (it's an old 550 Ti). Weird. 140 to 600 is kind of spectacular though. I've noticed the Sony game was installing some additional graphics components, maybe it makes a big difference for newer cards.

Been mining for about a month started with Litecoin and AMD6870, then added and old AMD4770. Then the pool I was in got too many Ghashers so it wasnt good for me and my low setup.
Yesterday got 1 Antminer U1 setup and now working in Bitcoin, probably get more when I can afford.
Now if I can only get the Antminer on my Raspberry PI.

Have been mining for a bit over a month. Mostly prime coin and protoshares on a few VPS's I own. It was fairly successful until the last couple of weeks when the difficulty went up and I was only making half the amount of coins as when I started. Just started setting up my GPU mining. Have a GTX 780 and old GTX 680, GTX 670 and GTX 580 not doing anything most of the time. Don't have much time to play games anymore.

Dont think spending money on mining is any good right at the moment.. There is number of opportunities like cex.io, and investment in mining companies..  Wink

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

I've been mining for about a month


I started mining with a block eruptor a couple months ago.  I wondered if I'd make my money back that day or if it would take a few years.   I had no idea what the difficult was or anything else .... which is why I wanted to start doing it.  Can't figure it out by reading about it, the motivation just isn't there.

Hi! I'm new here and I started mining alt coins, just to have a feeling of how it works.
Now I have a litle bit of DOGE and Primecoin, mined with a i7 laptop.

Only mining for a few days. Mainly Quark in a pool (with limited success) but have tried solo mining Earthcoin from the wallet (with no success as yet).

With DOGE falling back to "sane" profitability levels, those who are mining with CPU will be better off with CPU-only coins.

There are currently Primecoin (XPM), Quark (QRK) and Protoshares (PTS), mostly.

MemoryCoin is not really a CPU coin but it has some special features that makes GPU mining less interesting.

Well I went to that one image site this morning and uploaded the screen shots while getting ready for work. When I got to work I can't find them on the site. So I'll try again when I get back home and see if i can knock it all out at once. Now the 600 isn't the norm i's what it spikes to on occasion. Normally it's running around the 400-480 level. I do have a newr card though it's a evga ftw 780. As for switches I don't have any set as of yet. Most of my friends said that the rates I am getting now are real good for and nvidia card and said they wouldn't mess with it to much. This is on my gaming machine so I don't want to mess up the card. You also said MH and I'm only getting Kh doing scrypt mining so that might be a big difference to.

Same but with 6 x 280x and have 2 more on backorder.

280x are all out of stock it seems. Wonder why?

Been mining on and off since beginning of 2013 when you could still get BTC with GPUs. ASICS took over there.

Then mined LTC but the diff is so high its better to mine alts and exchange for BTC like you're doing.

Happy mining 2014

I've been mining for a few months. Nothing big, just small scale. Started off with a couple dozen USB block erupters. Also have a BFL @ 8GH/s. Currently looking to get new hardware, which kinda sucks since my current hardware has only just paid for itself. My plan is to buy some new gear and then sell my old stuff. This way the "cost" of the old gear is lessended and I would have made a profit from it.

I have been mining Protoshares and Primecoin. Both try to be CPU only. Besides being used as a currency these shares will automatically give you a share in all distributed autonomous comanies who honor Invictus Innovations social contract. All holders of protoshares together get an automatic 10% share in every new company.

I started litecoin mining with my $70 NVIDIA, which made pennies.
I then got a $200 ATI card, and while the online calculators and specs were saying $4.50 a day, I got $1.50 a day, possibly because my power supply was not sufficient.

My most successful mining so far has been through CEX.io website, which allows hosted Bitcoin mining. It's simple and I don't have to worry about setup. Plus I can compound my earnings as often as I want.

I'm now trying the Bitmain AntMiner S1. I hit a few snags and still working to get it started. I'm hoping to get some help here.

Have been reading about bitcoin for a while, but only started mining a month ago.
I was fortunate enough to pick up a KNCMiner Jupiter in the 1st week in December.

It's been mining perfectly since setup. I would have liked it have it set up sooner, but the device has more than paid for itself in a month.

Onward and upward from here! Enjoying all the info on this forum.

Cheers.
