I started mining for the first time exactly a week or so ago. I have the following hardware:

CPU's
FX-8350 (8 Cores)
4x Xeon L5520 (16 Cores total, with hyperthreading so 32 "cores")
2x Dual Core Systems
i5 Notebook

GPU's
GeForce 660 GTX
Radeon 5570 (I think)
Radeon 5420 (I think)

I have the 660 GTX and 5570 both mining DogeCoin at a rate of around 240 hash total, with around 178 of that being from the 660 GTX alone. I have nearly all of the CPU's mining DimeCoin.

I am not sure of the future of DimeCoin at this time and it isn't very popular and I really don't have anyway to compare it's mining profitability to any other coin. Any suggestions on what I should mine as far as CPU's go? Also, what is the best way to sell/trade these coins for USD?

I'm sorry for all the n00b questions. Thanks in advance

A GTX 660 should be good for >180 kHash with the new cudaminer: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=167229.0
See the Google doc linked in that post for some custom tweaking settings.

I think you already have the CPU mining thing figured out - use your CPUs on coins that GPU, FPGA, and ASIC are not good at. No one knows which one of the CPU only coins will survive, and just like Scrypt coins I'm sure the most profitable coin bounces around every hour. (I'm sure a bunch of people are running scripts that change what their CPU is pointed at depending on profit calculators, similar to the auto-switch scrypt pools.)

I'm personally using my CPUs on World Community Grid for the Ripple Labs XRP giveaway - probably not as profitable as CPU coins but more useful use of compute in my mind + the BOINC client is more reliable than any miner out there.

I think it's still good cpu mining possiblilities with primecoin. Make sure to join pool.

You can convert those coins to btc and sell it at many places including this forum.
