I am new to bitcoin.
I've installed the bitcoin client 0.3.24-beta. I have an SSD for OS so I made a junction Instructions found here
for it to use my HDD.
Now the Bitcoin client is eating the crap out of my HDD, my internet and nearly an entire core of my processor out of 4 cores.
I've taken a look at the client and seeing Block Counts climbing. Whats going on, why is it going crazy on my hardware and internet?
Mining, I tried posting at the proper thread but I guess nimrods ruined it for new members like myself. So From here
I ran the guiminer for my cypress card but I don't see my gfx card utilizing at all. I've got OpenCL installed, 5800 series card. I've created an account, inserted my info into the miner etc.
What should I do?
