So according to my tracking information, my Diamond 5830 card should be delivered today, this isnt going in a "mining rig", but my everyday used custom build pc. The computer is running 24/7 anyways, so i figured i might as well make some bitcoin while its running. Its a AMD 2.5Ghz Quad-core w/ 4GB 800Mhz DDR2 and Win7 - it currently has a NVidia GT 220 that gets 10mhash/s. Im using deepbits pool with proportional payments and guiminer.

What i need to know is, should i change my miner, or my payments setting to get an increase in bitcoin? What threads/articles should i read before getting started? Is there anything else i should know?

I just want to be as prepared as i can be to try to maximize my coins.

I use and love cgminer, consistently faster and less stales than guiminer.

Make sure you fully remove ALL nvidia drivers before installing ATI card
then all you should need to do is install ATI drivers and start mining Smiley

"payments setting to get an increase in bitcoin?" mm unless you mean move to a different payout scheme payment settings make no difference to Bitcoin mining output. also look around at other pools. "biggest" doesn't always = best Wink

good luck with it, hope card arrives soon for you Smiley
