Hi,
I've heard from some people that you can make your own FPGAs even without buying Spartan or whatever development kits. My question is: can you really do it? If so, how? (links to guides appreciated) I really like Bitcoin in general and want to mine a bit better than with my GPUs.
And maybe a little extra question - is it worth?

Good fun (if you are into that sort of thing), but no longer profitable to mine on development boards (unless you've already got one lying around at unused home/work/school, but don't buy one just for mining).

Wow, $600 seems a bit high to me. If I get that much sometime, I'll definitely try to do something because I really love doing these things and a few bitcoins extra wouldn't be unusable. Thanx for your reply Wink
