I've been reading and trying to understand this but i'm just not finding the answers.

I have many computers in my home and want to set them all to mining. When installing bitcoin on each one they each get their own address. How do I have the work done by all these machines consolidated under one account?
I have various windows machines and an imac.

I'd like to run my own pool but i'm getting the impression that it may just not be worth it and joining a pool would be best? I'd still like to put all my computers to work on this.  My imac is a 2011 with the AMD 6970m,  my main PC has a 460GTX.  I have two other machines with a Radeon 3350 and 5570.  And another with a Nvidia 8800GT.  The a few other computers with onboard video(Intel G45).
If it's financially viable I can swap out the 460GTX for 3 AMD cards as that motherboard supports it.

I think it'd be better for you to mine at bigger pool.

You can run bitcoin app as server from one of your machines and then point the other miners to it.
You'll need mining software like GUI miner (http://forum.bitcoin.org/?topic=3878.0), python, pheonix, etc. for each machine.

Haven't tried mining on a mac yet, I dare not try especially on iMacs as they tend to run very hot even on normal use.

Create a worker account at a pool of your choice, you can use that account to run multiple miners.

With the GPUs that you listed, you won't be hashing too much and they will cost quite a bit to run. If you have access to free electricity, then by all means...

Electricity here is cheap so i'm not too worried about that but if i'm not going to get much from the other machines I won't bother with them.
The imac can run hot while gaming but I can also manually crank the fan up to keep it within reason.

I do have a bitcoin client and server running now on my main PC.  Just can't figure out how to connect other miners on other machines to it.  I'll have to look into this more later as i'm heading out the door now.

Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated!
