I dunno if the 'very' was necessary but after searching again I see prices have gone down a smidge since I searched last. Plus I'll admit that I got frustrated searching for 5870s and kinda gave up. My efforts have been renewed...ty ty! Wink

But again...thank you very much for the info. I'm SOO glad to hear there there ARE (still) other options available besides ASICs that people seem to be going gah gah over lately and other than BFLs 'rumored' new chips I haven't really seen the real advantages unless you can afford well...a butt load of em...

yes I was hesitant to use 'very' almost left it out Wink

oh yeah. GPU's are still the most affordable available right now. ASiC's are in infancy. FPGA's are only a good option if you have high power costs.

I thought prices were going up recently, shortly before i bought 5970's they were about $300/each, then bitcoin price steadily going up, i saw them rise to $320 or so when i bought and now i think $340 I'm guessing

other ones i dont know, probably less inflation because 5970's are the hot sell for bitcoin mining. maybe people that sold them off when bitcoin was $2 or $3 bought some back when bitcoin is $8 and $9

HAHA...I wasn't really worried about the 'very'...just wanted to point it out cuz this IS the newbies area ya? (Sorry...been a forum moderator in the past and sometimes my bumhole tendencies show...oops Tongue ...ya know...keepin people in check subtle style HAHA)

No but really, I talk big but I've really only discovered BitCoins within the last 2 months or so. In my searching, mostly because it is a 'hot topic' right now, I kept seeing ASICs as 'omg amazing' and what you 'need now' or get buried by the competition...yadda yadda. As such I had kinda swept GPUs under the rug as not worth the cost but you have shown me the error of my ways Wink

oh, and off topic (sorta) but whoever joined my minipool recently...yay thank you! Cheesy Triplemining really is a GREAT pool...I hope you have as much luck with them as I have! ( http://gektek.triplemining.com )

Hello bitcoiners!

I am from Czech Republic (that small country in the heart of Europe). I have been using Bitcoin from the beginig of 2012 but lurking around a little longer. Finally I have decided to jump to this (hardcore) forum. I am obsessed with Bitcoin and other disrupting technologies.

Long live Satoshi spirit!

Gods sent us a powerful tool - cryptography - to fight with those who are trying to exploit us. USE IT!!

Hey all been lurking these forums for about a year or so, decided I'd finally register. Lately I've been trying to figure out how feasible it would be to accept bitcoins as payment in addition to paypal for a new business I will be starting in the next month. With the huge variance in the price of BTC is there a way to tie a price to dollars pinged to the exchange rate? Also how long would it take me to convert from bitcoin to $ (say with paypal). The reason I ask is because my margins are going to be pretty low, and as of now my costs will be fixed, so if I receive payment in bitcoins and it takes me a day or two to sell them and assuming the value of bitcoin has dropped then I would be losing money. I think bitcoin is a great new technology and I look forward to being a member of this community.

Hi!

I'm Gerco, I've been lurking on these forums for a year or so now and got involved in Bitcoin just before the $30 point (and subsequent crash). I trade mostly on GLBSE while I'm looking for some venture to earn bitcoins with in earnest. I believe in Bitcoin and am looking forward to the days that I can pay my rent in BTC.

The US banking system is so old fashioned, expensive and slow that I find it almost impossible for something that is better in almost every way to fail Smiley

Been lurking for a few days and decided to setup an account early on.  Been doing what mining I can (maxed out at 14.0 Mh/s, booya!) on a laptop and just sort of edging my way into the community.

please do so! and get a post Smiley
don't be so negative, the 5-post-4-hour-rule is there for a reason: to get rid of the trolls. NOT to piss newcomers off.

relax take it easy and smile. Cheesy

Hi, I'm new to this and like everyone else would like some bitcoins here is a referral link to minefield. You've probably all played before but I figure this is worth a try. https://bitcointalk.org/annoyance.php or http://minefield.bitcoinlab.org/?r=eOILlYnAWx0DWKtx Here's my address if anyone's feeling generous. 1LnkzKuJDCRyYjZQCjmgeYaSNDBeLdC7hj

Hi. :-)

First ran across this site a couple of weeks ago...some CPU mining on my VPS paid off a while back. I'm only managing about 25 MH/s between a Core 2 Quad Q6600, a couple of GeForce 9500GTs, and whichever Xeons my VPS is running on, but I'm considering stepping up to something more powerful.

Lurker who has been mining for eight months.  Did the GPU mining for a while and still do but that has been crap compared to BFL setup.  I am a BFL fan so boo to you if you don't like them.  Also my name represents that I am using solar to power my mine so ha to you all who buy your power for the man, just kidding around.

I want to be able to post more so that is why I am introducing myself otherwise I am very low key and like to watch, don't get into drama and just trying to be real and make some money.
