Psychologically, I'm finding it easier to stop mining at this difficulty level just for some fan noise free time, for the health of my card and to spack around playing games.

Anyone else having the same feeling. Days of fan noise just for a few frikking dollars?

I buy a new 6970 (plus additional parts when needed) every 2 weeks.

I am not in it for the money, so I don't mind spending a couple grand every months to keep up/overcome difficulty rises every so often.

Help Bitcoins by buying clothes, technology, books, etc. through people/stores that accept BTC. This will increase overall value of BTC as well as mitigate unnecessary bank transaction fees.

Regardless of current difficulty I do stop mining every now and then when I just want some peace and quiet from the fans.

(Some things Bitcoin just can't buy...)

I sold my 5970 a couple weeks ago and I regret it. Should have let it ran for 3 more months. I was expecting difficulty to keep on sky rocketing. At least I made $200 profit off it though. The way I see it I can now buy about 5 months worth of bitcoins and not worry about the noise, heat and electricity or tying up my computer. The card was probably going to die anyway.

As with most electronics.
They don't 'wear out' noticeably faster with normal use, unless you over-volt or -heat them they will live a long life.

I don't mine because I don't want to wear my card out for Battlefield 3.

I'm hoping to make enough from Bitcoin to be able to have a dedicated rig with a 6990 ready for when BF3 comes out. The games going to be kickass IMO.

As for not mining, I can't stop - I'm well addicted now.  Tongue

Or under clock your cards and turn down the fans:

> aticonfig --odsc 650,200
> aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 35"

then you get quiet, AND still have some mining going on

I think so it's a good idea, everybody should stop mining for a few hours each day to get some peaceful and quiet time. Wink

Unfortunately I am having hearing difficulties so am unable to join everybody else in this excellent rest time. Cheesy

And thus is born a free market. Some people give up and make it more profitable for everyone else.

no.

It's better to be pissed off, than to be pissed on.
