Let's post some tips that all newbs should know before wasting money.

1. Using your CPU uses at least 10 times more energy than a GPU for the same amount of hashes.

2. With the current difficulty level you will actually loose money instead of earn if you try to calculate hashes using only the CPU.

My CPU gives me a speed of ~3 mhash/sec whereas my GPU gives me ~45 mhash/sec.

If I helped, tip me! Smiley http://btc.to/a7

So these are tips for newbies attempting running bitcoin mining rigs? Here's a tip: If you're a newbie fresh out the gate, learn more about bitcoin and the bitcoin economy before attempting to mine. Mining requires a major capital investment, not to mention, major ongoing expenses.

is this mining tips for newbs or just random tips for ppl new to bitcoin?    the first tip i would give is that even GPU mining is no longer profitible to invest in.   And also the first tip noobs should know is to keep your wallet.dat backed up, encrypted and off your virus plagued windows box or all other tips don't really matter when your security is comprimised.
