Obviously most people fall into several categories, so what do you generate the most coins with?

You seem to be missing a category for "I convert other currency into bitcoins through an exchange".

I both mine and speculate. But since my card isn't the best (ATI Radeon HD 5750) I want to focus more on the speculating from now on.

I'd say that equals 100% to 'playing the market', no?

Currently it's mining with my 4870-equipped Desktop and Alienware M17x R3 with a 6970M graphics card. I'm planning on making a trading bot to invest some of these mined coins, but I'm holding on to them for now.

No, playing the market implies trying to make money on the price fluctuations by buying and selling.  That is very different from buying a stash of BTC for later use (although I admit that if you do it hoping that the price goes up in the long run, you *are* playing the market - as opposed to if you plan on *spending* you BTC).

I think so, too. Just started by converting a bit of money into BTC and plan on investing it on one of the exchanges, through which I hope I will participate in a successful mining operation.

I'm casually mining with 2 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480's and 1 GTS 450 at 280 Mhash/s.  I'm currently getting 95% revenue plus Namecoins... if anyone has a better recommendation than btcguild.com, then please do share!
