Thanks everyone. I'm just gonna have to get more fpga's I guess.
I would love one of those avalons. They only accept bit coin. But I live a half hour away
From their mailing address in Albany NY.
Wish I could just knock on the door and give them cash. So for now each miner is 439MH/s


For a price, I can build ya a wicked GPU miner bumping out over 2GH/s...   Wink
yes I'm interested but I just spent 1000 on these puppies and bought http://bit.ly/17zInxx
So  have to wait a couple weeks.. Sad

Wait what did you spend $1,000 on? The 2 FPGAs running at 439MH/s?  Geez... For less than $1000 you can build a machine with 2 7870xt's (each put out > 500MH/s) and have room to expand!  

That gaming rig has a nice MoBo, but that GTX570 isn't too hot for mining (plus it takes up 3 slots!! WTF Asus?). I'd swap that out for a couple 7870xt (each card = $260 @ 500+ MH/s)
Link: http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graphics-11199-20-20G/dp/B00AWKYB1M/ref=sr_sp-btf_title_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1372263403&sr=8-6&keywords=7870+GHz

or just a couple of Sapphire 7870 GHz editions (each card = $215 each @ 410-425 MH/s)
Link: http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-DL-DVI-I-SL-DVI-D-PCI-Express-100354OC-2L/dp/B00A2J4ROE/ref=sr_sp-atf_title_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372263403&sr=8-1&keywords=7870+GHz

just a waste of money not going to the 7870xt for 100mh/s+ each. I have 2 doing 530 and 2 doing 520mh/s where my 7870's are 425 410/410 400. took me 4 loser 7870's to realize the 7870xt was better money! grrr....
I got all the $15 rebate cards and all the game cards for the 7870xt so 250-$15 selling game cards -$15 cyrsis3 -$40 for bioshock/tomb raiders/farcry3 so paid basically $180 for each card.
I'm so hungry for them xt's I'm getting them now on amazon.

um... just so you know, GPU mining is on its way out except for altcoins. their power consumption is just too high compared to fpga's and asic's.  right now, everything is considered over priced because of the rapidly increasing difficulty. if you are trying to make money, look for the most cost effective means, not the quickest to accomplish. you do realize that getting new video cards entails getting/building a new computer.

Well right now you have the option of FPGA (high $ per MH/s), usb block erupters (same as FPGA), or GPU.  ASICs have a significant lead time to acquire so they are not viable for someone just getting into mining. You can still make BTC with GPU's right now, but you are right in the fact that they are nearing the end of their mining value.  The biggest thing is that TODAY the most cost effective and quickest way to start mining is with GPUs.
And if you go back and read his post, you'll notice he has already purchased a machine that will be more than capable of pushing out 1.5GH\s to 2GH\s when he adds the correct GPU's.

Yes I did its on its way. I am really new and hungry to learn. Asics would be great but i don't have BTC to buy them off avalon.  I mean 1500$ for 65GH/s is Almost free, I think batch 3 is much more. $ tho. I want to learn and make a few bucks..even if its a shot for the long run.... What happens when u get everything you ever wanted.....,"you live happily ever after"

You can buy BTC with plain old dollars, then you can buy anywhere that asks for BTC.    In theory a person can meet up with you to sell the BTC in person even and take cash.  The main problem with ASIC BTC miner is the waiting time, its a theoretical product because by the time they deliver it could be pointless  (probably not but nobody can tell when it'll arrive and we don't know the BTC price a year from now)

Stick with what you got, at least a gpu can be used for other things.   Once you have some experience then decide on big bucks.
  If BTC price rises enough then even awfully high difficulty and terrible luck on the pool wont stop GPU being worth it and vice versa of course -
I agree in general the trend is away from amateur operations if/when BTC matures further

Hmmm.  I'm only getting 350 - 380 out of mine.  Though I haven't tried all those scary options in the BIOS -- sending extra power to the cards and stuff like that.

Cool ---> Who will mine the next 777 Block??? Place your bets at block777.com!!!

I am getting 415 Mhash/s @ 1150 core, 625 RAM, @ 65 on mine running GUIminer, Afterburner and Win 7. GUIminer flags are -v -w256 -f10

YMMV

Adding "-k poclbm" takes me up to 390 Mh/s.  Can anyone explain what that flag does?  I've researched a bit but couldn't figure it out.

It changes what kernel the app mines with. Which app are you using?

I am surprised how little this is discussed in the forums. I was mining without flags for awhile, then about shit when I figured out what a few little "flags" could do.
-k poclbm gave me error as no such option.

Good ole'   https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison   is the only central resource I have found for flags.

 Every mining app ive used has a readme or some documentation that lays out the switches\flags available to use with the app.

what's wrong with a higher hash rate? don't you get less of a payout, but more frequent?
no u get lower payout same frequency. it isnt enough of an increase.
but then again this is that question where u r going to get the ones trying to increase their post count to push a pointless point of it is when it isnt.

I wish you lower payout same frequency really applied to you, when you believe in it. And that we others who don't and who have to read this nonsense again and again, got the difference... :-)

I wonder who gets the reward or how will it be calculated if no one can connect?  Huh I'm a bit confused...

In short, when no one can connect, there's no reward, as there are no blocks...

But,  what looks a bit strange to me, that you care about the reward, when the pool is down. I'd care more why it was down, what happened, and when it would be back again... Well, it's on everyones' nature...
