I am well aware that solo mining depends heavily on luck. But if you had a Mhashes/sec that fluctuated between 230-247MHashes/sec, would that be sufficient for solo mining? Or would it be more sensible to just keep in a pool?

Better to stay in a pool with that low of mhash/s.  You would need a few ghash/s for solo mining to be worth it IMO.

Understood. I also game with the computer I mine on, So I wouldn't have it running 24/7. It might not even be worth it to run it at all I suppose, but then again, I don't pay for the electricity

It's pure profit then, might as well run it.

True. The monthy returns wouldn't be fantastic (depending if I am working or not, it is probably on at least 12 hours/day), but they would be returns nonetheless. I didn't go out and buy any hardware, I already had this 5770. So how is solo mining ever feasible? Would one not need 3-4 rigs with decent, high-end cards to reach sufficient GH/s?

oh, and on a slightly unrelated note, any ideas why Sapphire TRIXX will not let me set my GPU voltages to 1.164? When I try, it autocorrects to 1.162. I cannot set my core clock any higher as a result, If I set it higher than 1GHz my monitor goes black and I have to restart

I solo mine, taking my chances at hitting the jackpot. I didn't make a huge investment in hardware, so I don't need to recoup my costs. I think it's best for Bitcoin to have as many small miners as possible.

Still can't figure out why I can't bump my voltage up to 1.164
