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.My System Information
