Hey guys,
Is it worth mining in a pool or at all if I only get about 20 Mhash/s? I have a nVidia Geforce GTX 460M inside my Asus G73SW gaming laptop.
Thanks

It is only worth it if you mine in a pool. Still, you will not earn much (~0.3 BTC/month). It probably won't cover electricity.

http://bitcoinx.com/profit/ is what i use to get an idea of how much i'm making considering electricity, etc.

Nvidias are quite poor at this from what i understand.  However, i've heard of people getting external graphics cards to mine with their laptops, might be worth checking out.

I answered this question before, here's the quote:

The strait answer is NO!  Even if you mine on a pool it would not be worth it.  You would only get roughly 0.34 BTC per month which is equal to about $3.73.

I've got an 360m and I was getting about 0.008/day.

Even if you were to buy a graphics card externally, heat just kills these overpowered laptops.

Do you mean 360M/hashes?  If so your numbers are waaaay off.
