Hi all,

New to Bitcoins and all that malarkey, however I'm easing in nicely.

Really fascinates me! Struggling with UK restrictions on getting hold of them easily, but sure I'll manage.

Hello. I have been playing around with bitcoins for a while now but have not really been involved with the community.

I have a bitcoin related project I am working on and figured I had better get involved in the community sooner rather than later.

Ok, intro time. I call myself the worlds oldest programmer. I started programming in FORTRAN when you wrote a program on punch cards waited a whole day to see if your program ran got it back found bugs and repeat. There was only one computer in all of Flagstaff, AZ at the time at NAU. I am now writing apps for the Android phones.

What a lovely story nice to meet you I hope we become good friends x

Thank you, Chang. So nice to get a warm welcome.

Hmmm. It looks like mining goes a little faster at night than during the day.

Hi, I'm Niki from Bulgaria... mining since May.2011 started with 6670 just for a try and several weeks later had 2 rigs with 3 5830s each. Funny or not the most profit I made was in November/December (when the price and diff were low) mining with my tops 3GH/s and enjoying the heat in the winter Smiley

Now I'm with the same 6670 + one half dead 5850 and a total of ~300MH/s waiting for the ASICs to arrive (eventualy).

I'm a member of this forum more than a year, and still in the Newbie prison.. anyway time to escape it Wink

Max Keiser mentioned it on the Alex Jones Show two days ago. I then searched out several YouTube videos on the subject and promptly signed up.

Well hello Smiley

I'm Andrea*, nice to meet you all ^_^

I've been lurking for a while and have been a rather "small" and occasional bitcoin user/miner for some time now, but It's getting more and more interesting.

*I'd like to specify I'm a man... Italian, you see Smiley

Howdy! Friend made me aware of BTC last night, and I am utterly fascinated by this concept!

Bought a couple BTC to get seeded, and then started pool mining using my laptop GPU...pathetic 8.6Mhash.  I expect I'll get a little better out of the ATI 6770 in my gaming rig, but still nothing to write home about.

I recently got my hands on an HP DL785 G5 server that has 11 PCIe slots...assuming I can power the thing without blowing circuit breakers in my apartment (thank god all my utilities are included), what'd produce higher Mhash: 11 x Nvidia 8400 GS 1GB cards, or 5 x ATI 5750 1Gb cards, which will (after shipping) end up costing about the same...

Anyhow, happy to be part of something so cool and innovative!

Using your laptop to mine is a really good way to shorten it's life.

As for the server.  Most (if not all) GPU cards that support OpenCL will require an x16 slot - so i would first check how many of those that are in the server.  Then of course, most server power supplies are not big enough to support that one CPU anyway.  For example an AMD 7970 GPU requires a 2 pcie power adapters, 1 is 75Watts, one is 150 Watts.  So without any overclocking - you are looking a about 225 watt draw per card.  So you will need to look at that.

Also, good mining gpu's will take 2 slots of space so at best you can get in 5 physically if all slots were x16.  and that would be with no air gap to speak of between them - watercooling would be a solution in this case.  And then without hacked drivers, 4 GPU's would be the most.

So given all requirements met - 4 GPU's.  This is kind of an overkill machine for this purpose. 

Also, don't mine with NVidia cards - use AMD - that hash rate on NVidia is horrible compared to the AMD Radeon's. 

Here is a good general card comparison guide (a little dated) but really good starting point:
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison

Check out this thread for a good discussion on building a mining rig:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=9036.0

Hope this helps...
