Just discovered the bitcoin, and mining two days ago. Ever since I've been researching, and calculating, and calculating, and calculating. I'm trying to actually crunch numbers until I find out, without a doubt, that this mining business is profitable. I currently have an NVIDIA 9800GTX+, not running a CUDA miner, just normal phoenix. Only getting 35mhash/s
It's quite sad. But this is just a test to see if I'll actually get my predicted numbers.
At my rate, selling the bitcoin at it's current value... I predicted I'd make $10 USD a month with my current setup. No way I'd ever possibly break even, ever. The electric bill is obviously much higher than $10 with this setup.
So I came here to get some technical expertise, along with some wise advice. Should I jump in? I would probably be able to afford 1 rig, with 1 card at the moment and increase from there once I actually see some income. Will I see any income? Or will I need 3 rigs with 4 cards each before this game is profitable.
