I just started this today, and to be honest I have no idea how this really works. I have been mining since around 1 pm (almost 6 hours). I have a NVIDIA card (4 gig) gtx 680 FTW, which shows to be getting between 114-117.6 Mhash, however my account info only shows 80Mhash. I also notice the more shares (currently 420) I have the lower my estimated reward drops.

 80MH/s sounds about right for a high end Nvidia, hope you got free electricity or you will be paying a lot for the bit dust you mine. good luck  Grin and welcome to the pool.

Hopefully it won't up my bill much, but if so I guess this will just be an occasional thing.

Hello everyone!

I am mining for some weeks now as a Hobby, and i am really hooked right now with the whole matter.

My 7.6GH Mining Rig right now are 4 Block Eruptors and 3 BitFury Devices, hooked to an old HP Laptop that i stripped of the HDD(Boots from SD-Card), the second RAM module and underclocked from 1.6 to 1GHz. I Installed a Bare Debian Wheezy on it and i am using cgminer 3.8.4 on it.

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of you here. I read the forum everytime the pool acts a little strange and so far all my questions have been answered before i could even ask them.

so, happy mining guys!

Might be worth you looking at a RaspberryPi with MinePeon as your miner. I will use less power than an HP laptop and will be quieter.

Found this useful? Want to tip me?

You should consider at least just starting with a USB block erupter. For $30 you can get 300mh/s and don't need to worry about burning out the GPU. Back in early November a USB erupter was $10, either way it's better than beating on the GPU, assuming the computer has some alternate uses other than mining...

I would say getting an ANT Miner is a better option, they don't cost a great deal more but they have a much better hashing power.

one card wont up it much, maybe 3 to 5 bucks per month to earn the 30 cents a month in BTC. those other posts above got the right idea, you want cheapest, low power consuming devices. the most hash power for the lowest electricity.

I just bought the blade eruptor, but you feel the ant minter is better?? Can I run one of each at a time?

If you get the bug, like i did, it starts with the on hand GPU's and goes up from there. But if you want to make any real progress you will have to be talking in at least Gh/s not Mh/s. I agree with the USB approach. Great way to get started. Welcome to the pool!

I won't ask for donations but I will ask for help. And I won't give donations but I will help if I can.

Yeah they are, they aren't too much more cost wise, but run at 1.6 ghash/sec by defaul but can be over clocked, I have mine running at 2ghash/sec each.

You can run them side by side yeah. I use minepeon on a raspberry pi and the cgminer and bfminer in peon doesn't support the ants out the box so you have to re-compile it to include the driver but its easy enough.

sorry to be a killjoy for you, but occasional mining at 80-100MH/s X 300watts isn't doing you, or the network, or the environment, any favours at todays hashrate.

I got the bug, like you did, and it happened just like you said, but I started with the cpu's just as the gpu's got going.

Yeah, we'll be going the usb route, I'm thinking 2 ant miners and 2 erupters (for starters) in the next week or two and hopefully work our way up a bit more as we go, and just occasionally use the gpus for a little boost from time to time.

Run the GPUs if ya want. It is an easy way to decide if ya like what you are doing. Even USBs can be a losing proposition, but it is a foot in the door. There is more to life than just profits. Have fun and enjoy what you are doing. There is enjoyment to be found by some in just seeing their hashrate grow from adding new equipment over time. And then, there is the race to increase your hashrate faster than the difficulty rises. This is a losing game but it can be addicting.

That's the plan Smiley We'll start somewhat small and I'm hopeful work our way up, we just need to get our feet wet before diving in.

Yes. The fun part is very important. After all, 80-100MH/s X 300watts isn't doing you, or the network, or the environment, any harm either. :-)

hi newbie to the slush pool and bitcoin mining for that matter

i started mining using guiminer cos i am no good with the command prompt stuff.
if i get some usb erupter would that work with guiminer?

My first software used was GUI miner, and I'm not a techie either. Just jump into bfgminer and figure it out, a living brain is a learning brain. You will get good at everything through failing fast and getting mistakes out of the way early; GUI miner is a mistake, learn and move on, faster the better.

I think I put in the wrong password in Multiminer as I have been mining for 2 days and have nothing to show for it in Slush's pool.

It asks for my miner name then password. I used the password for the site, but am thinking I was supposed to use my password for my worker.

Does anyone know which one I am supposed to use?

Thanks
