you in Aus aswell ?

I have been trying to figure out how much it would cost...  I just pay the bill when it arrives... i never realy look at the kw costs etc..
how much power would it use and cost to have your pc idling and mining 24/7 ?

thanks

But your PC isn't idling during mining, and that's the problem. Your system needs to exert some serious computing power, and you need some serious cooling to go with it. All up, my PCs draw 3-4 kW for around $16-$22 per day. I haven't actually tried mining with my system, but by my guesstimate it should do about 2Ghash/s, and mine about 1BTC per day. Not even worth trying.

Hi. I'm Snowflower. This is a flower that blooms early in the spring in the mountains and comes up through the snow.

I know nothing about bitcoin and have joined this forum in hopes that it will start making sense to me eventually. Right now my computer is downloading something or other - says it is 78% finished now and it's been a bit more than an hour. The site that started explaining it to me said it might take several hours.  I'm not even sure what it is I'm downloading, but just decided to make a beginning and see if I can make sense of it after awhile.

Yeah I was just curious how much it costs you when it is idling vs how much when its 100% chugging along.

Yes, that does make a bit of a difference. I don't know exactly how much of a difference, but... yeah. Oh, I should also point out that I don't usually run all of my PCs all the time (as is typical for a mining operation), for exactly this reason. A single PC has lower power requirements, but correspondingly lower returns. You can't really do much with just one PC. Generally you want several PCs each with multiple GPUs, or else some kind of specialised hardware. Not to mention some means of powering the whole operation that costs less than the bitcoins you're mining (this is where the whole plan falls apart, at least in Australia).

Hey everyone my name is Eric. I've been using bitcoins for about 5-6 months now and I came across this site and decided to give it a try. I usually do graphic work and website building for bitcoins but I guess you can really sell anything for btc.

Hello, my name's Reece.
I've been here for a while now and deal with a large amount of BTC each day. If you are in the same places as me with the exchanging of BTC you will know my name. You know where I come from. About all I can say about that right now. Expect to see me around as I plan on becoming active here instead of ghosting around reading posts.
