I know its a shit card - but i dont care - i still need it to work, something is better than nothing. GUIMiner says "NO OpenCL devices found.", i can switch to another miner if needed, but just need the GPU to do the work.

Do you have the latest drivers? I know 8xxx series works, but I don't know if it's 8800 and up or not!

The card has too few CUDA cores to be worthwhile for mining.

It will generate about 2 ½ mhash/s, i.e. you will be spending more on electricity than you will earn mining.
In fact your processor might be faster.

At current difficulty level you will earn 0.09 bitcoins in 1 month or about $1.31 dollars.
At next difficulty (1.25 million) you will earn 1 bitcent per week, or 4 bitcents per month (under 1 dollar).

It's best to leave it as a HTPC card for movies, light gaming etc.. And get a radeon 5-series card for mining.
