They are a bit hard to calculate with. I know my hash rate will be 2184 for LC Difficulty I kept as standard import no clue what Pool Fee is.

The mining pools charge a fee to run the servers and take some of the risk. It's usually 2%.

At that point I will be making $420 a month with a elec bill of $75 so 320 a month Seems quite good. That is with 3 x 7970's with 5k should I get 2 rigs both with 3 x 7970's. So many things to think about.

But that's at the current difficulty. It is going to go up. It's was at 200 only two weeks ago. Make sure you factor in the decreasing returns.

It depends on the relative price and difficulty of BTC and LTC. I haven't mined LTC yet so I don't know if the mining rate corresponds to the difference in market value. I'm planning to try it and see if it's worth mining LTC or mine BTC and sell for LTC.

If mining really becomes unprofitable, perhaps move to folding.

When my friend told me about folding I felt guilty for using hardware to mine coins that could be used to cure disease. Definitely interesting though. :/

it would have been nice if there was some way to combine the two

Folding with a BTC payout? Tongue

We can make a new altcoin called science coin!

I quite like that idea. We're gonna go far!
