I am trying to set up my 8600GT to be used to mine solo, but, unfortunately, I am an idiot and don't know much about this kind of stuff.  I'd find it pretty helpful.

I just released a GUI that tries to make GPU mining easier, maybe you would find it helpful? Here is the thread link:

http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3878.0

Give it a try and I can help you out if you get stuck.

I had a hell of a time getting a GPU miner to run on Windows until I switched to PuddinPop's miners.  Only gotchas, make sure you have the NVidia CUDA driver installed, and on XP, you'll need the MSVC80 runtime environment (free from Microsoft, requires no configuration, and you have a good chance of already having it installed from something else).

I don't beg - If I do something to deserve your BTC, you can find my address on the invoice.  Wink

Please, no more tutorial videos. Text with screenshots is usually much better as you can skip and search at will. With video, you're stuck watching the whole thing until you find the info you were actually looking for.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.
