Hi all,

Is there currently a free GPU mining pool I could join?

Thanks!

What do you mean by "free?"  None of them require any payment upfront from you.  Both Slush's and BitPenny's pools only charge a commission once you've contributed some mining effort.  I think this is entirely reasonable.  Slush said he plans to go back to allowing free mining once he gets his bandwidth issues sorted out.

I would say go with Slush. His price is very reasonable and i have had zero issues.

+1 to Slush for me as well. It's the right size and the fees are reasonable.

The larger mining pools are a bit too expensive, and the smaller pools don't find blocks often enough for my liking.

use 5.9.24.81  Grin

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

I like ABC. PPS is definitely the way to go if you like consistency.
