haha yes you can mine them at the same time but the GPU speeds or CPU speed (depends which you mine with) will be up and down alot best if you have 2 or more GPUS then you can mine 1 on 1 GPU and the other on the 2nd GPU

Thanks for the reply man. I have a Sony Vaio laptop do you think I could mine litecoin with that or would it not be worth the electricity costs?

You can't, you can only mine BTC and NMC. LTC has a completely different cryptographic algorithm.

Right, Litecoin (LTC) uses Scrypt instead of SHA-256... It uses more memory, and is thus supposed to be more FPGA and ASIC-resistant... So far LTC is one of the most dynamic (and highly volatile) altcoins.

I have an i7 2600k (8 core) which goes through LTC like butter but coughs at BTC, so I mine LTC on it and BTC on the GPU.  It all depends on what hardware you have available and usually laptops are not worth using to mine because although they may give you a return, the mining will surely destroy the life expectancy of the laptop (not enough cooling, continual use, will destroy everything, and the battery... fry the hdd oh the humanity...)

however if you use cgminer and put the aggression down it wont do it much harm Wink

Thanks muubam. TBH the fan on the laptop I have goes nuclear even for light browsing so I'm not going to risk it. I'll have to stick to mining BTC on my desktop and maybe switch to LTC if and when the ASICs show up.

On a sidenote I would never buy another sony computer again. They should stick to TV's
