I'm thinking about setting up a windows 2000 mining rig with a radeon 6870. Can I mine with this? Will my hash rates be lower than Linux and Windows 7 users?

Can I also still overclock the card with windows 2000?

I can not get a miner to work with windows 2000 it needs windows xp and higher and windows 2000 and xp are quite close to one another,

So just run windows xp, and install a light antivirus and your good to go

I don't think the 6xxx drives will even work with Windows 2000. Why not try Ubuntu if you don't have XP,Vista,7?

I run an ancient truck with win 2000 as my daily driver. Nothing bitcoin related works on it.

If I were you I'd set up a linuxcoin bootable USB stick, assuming your mob can boot to usb.

Feel like investing in a Miner?:

I wish I could travel back to 2000 and go bitcoining.  If that makes any sense.
