Hi BC forum!

A bit about myself:

Been lurking the forums for awhile, mostly to find advice for getting started with bitcoin.  I've tested the few waters with some mining pools and trading.  Still haven't fully decided if I would like to join either "camp"

I figured that I should stop lurking and register an account so when I actually want to post something (like say...right now), I'm not relegated to the newbie area.

Sigh...procrastination is a bitch sometimes.

Anyhow, look forward to continuing to lurk, and only posting when I have something meaningful to say.

Hey guys! I'm d l b 7 6 ! Wink
Mining with GUIMiner v2011-07-01 using rpcminer-cuda.exe
With my GT440 I'm getting 20.1 Mhash/s so far, think thats about it, but should I maybe try any extra flags?


You should probably sell your GT440 and buy a Radeon graphics card(any 5xxx or 6xxx will do better than 20.1 Mhash/s). I have been trying to get a hold of some 5850s and I have only managed to get one out of several attempts...amazon refunded my money Sad   But the one 5850 I do have is mining @ 350 Mhash/s

You can see what card fits your budget here https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison

Thanks jakeonfire! That makes sense.  I had forgotten that it could be referring to a system similar to transactions.

Yeah Sneves, you about right, but mining on that PC is not a top priority, thanks for your comment.

Hi im Hashasim, been lurking forum as guest mostly from googling questions about bitcoin. Have known about bitcoin for 2 to 3 months, since Gavin went on ThisWeekInStartups basically. Decentrallized fixed-growth currency is the way out of the worlds financial mess, total advocate here.

I'm tweakedgeek.... been mining for a few weeks (pool, don't have a huge rig). I'm doing it more for the fun than anything...

I mine with:

   My gaming pc, has two radeon 6970s
   My kids gaming pc, has one radeon 6830
   The wife's pc, has one Radeon 5770

Hopefully at least paying for electricity, but seeing how the market looks over past couple days you never know.

My full time gig is as a High Performance Computing system administrator, which probably explains why this bitcoin idea is so interesting to me. Distributed computing and HPC are similar in some regards. Neat stuff.

Also looking for ideas for BTC related websites... I can write scripts in PERL, PHP and starting to play with Python a little. I was thinking about creating a site to sell web hosting for bitcoins. Anyone think that's a good idea?

Hi all,

Sabi here.  I'm new to BitCoin mining, but since I STILL have 2 5850's I figured it was worth trying.  I'm getting about 340 Mh/s from each card, and electricity is cheap here in the Midwest (about 8 cents a kWh).  It's a pretty interesting hobby.  I'm even thinking of heating my garage this winter with my miner rather than powering up a space heater. Smiley

Anyway, it's nice to "meet" you all.

-Sabi

Got interested on Bitcoins to buy a game  (Portal and Portal 2) ...
... and have both an FPGA board and an ATI Radeon GPU  ...
Could put my greedy hands on a small Nvidia Tesla cluster (16 GPU) but just for small experiments

Hey guys. 2nd day miner here. I deleted all my COD, BFBC2 and WoW and converting my gaming rig for mining. Grin So far mining on Saphire HD5770 (960/300) with guiminer (215Mhash) on Slush's pool. getting 2nd card in mail in a couple of days. I'm getting my feet wet to see if it's worth for me to spend $$$$ to build faster (4xGPU) rig. really want to learn to mine on Ubuntu with more sophisticated miners.

That seems decent Sabi, most people don't hit those numbers with that card. Look here.
