$350 can put together a machine that does ~400MHash/s and consumes ~200W

This will only be profitable over a long time frame, so you have to ask yourself: how do I feel about bitcoin's long term prospects?

If you like bitcoin's prospects long-term, then this could work out for you.

Details of the $350 machine:

E35M1-M Pro
1GB DDR3 1066
2GB USB Flash drive
Basic mid-ATX tower w/ 500W PS
PCIe x1 to x16 riser
2 x HD6770

EDIT: Obviously, without a hard drve, you need to use something like linuxcoin on the USB drive

It isn't, but just try to find anything smaller.

Besides, $8.99 is pretty cheap.

Interesting article! I am wondering how much the guys are making who are taking the mining seriously. And how much they have invested on it. If someone wants to share his story, I'd be happy to listen!

Zakcy,

No.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

Having a hard time finding the 5830 for ~$100, but the 6770 is looking like a good alternative for that price point.

I'm kinda in the same boat, just getting started and wondering how much to actually invest in all this. Since I don't pay for electric, it's a little easier, but I don't want to spent a fortune for a little experiment if it's not going to pan out.
