RUM AND CARROTS: A PIRATE LIFE FOR ME


View Profile

I'm considering buying some Video cards just to mine Litecoin.

I know people think my money is better spent just purchasing Litecoin, but I'm a supporter and I want to improve the network and also invest in it.

Is there any consensus about if I am purchasing a new gpu card to mine, what card offers the best performance to cost ratio?

cheers!

maybe you are looking for this list: https://github.com/coblee/litecoin/wiki/Mining-hardware-comparison

Yes, although I was hoping maybe to find some people who have cards other then those listed. For example the place I buy in the Czech Republic carries cards starting with the 6450 models, and some are really affordable. So I was curious   about the following numbers, if anyone personally has experience with them.

Radeon HD6450
Radeon HD6570
Radeon HD6670
Radeon HD6750
Radeon HD6770

more or less retired.

Crazy rabbit,

Really it depends on the amount you want to spend as well as what you are doing with the hardware afterwards. It is good that you are mining to help increase the popularity! The 6xxx series is obviously going to give the best KH overall, but depending on what you can get these for (new or used) and how much hashing power you get per $ + power usage your decision may be swayed. I personally love the 5xxx namely the 5870 cards as Ive used these for a year and I love them and wouldnt change them, resale value is fairly good too. I went to overclockers.com and brought 20 at a discounted price of £115.00 which was £35.00 cheaper than retail when I brought them as I had loads.

The other factors include supplementary hardware. By this I mean having motherboards with multiple pci-e slots, I had to spend over £130 last year on corsair IV extreme boards, I run these with amd processors (namely athlon dual core with core unlock enabled on the boards) as these were some of the cheapest quad enabled boards I could get at the time. Also you will need adequate ram and processor speed to make sure you dont bottleneck and that your cards get work diverted quickly and hassle free. I also had to buy PCI'e extenders from cablesaurus so I could achieve lower temps by hanging my cards. I recommend linux over windows as this saves you on harddrive and also I believe you get a couple extra hash when running without a gui on command line. You will have to get a recompiled version of reaper in order to gpu mine on linux, but thats available via other people who have made changes to it.

The other thing is that theres always more to learn in this game. Ive been doing this for over a year with bitcoin, namecoin and litecoin, and everytime I start mining something new, hardware runs differently with different mining currencies and also tweaks are always about. Just from these two last pages on this forum topic I have upped my speeds from just under 300kh per 5870 to more like 400 kh now (stable). I could get over this but cards always topped out after a few hours Sad

Invest in multiple 120mm fans and a larger oscillating fan in order to create a lower ambient temp.

Cheesy

@Coblee

Ignore the idiots, they will ask questions they know the answer to just to hijack thread and bloat it with BS. Litecoin sounds like a plan.

I am working on some exchanges.

BCX whatever happened to this?

Pools have their own threads on this forum.
The litecoinpool.org thread is here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=50946.0
You could also send me a personal message or contact me on Freenode, if you prefer.

Oh and in case anyone actually cares about their LTC ...

Luke-jr has stated in IRC that he is considering exploiting CVE-2012-2459 on Litecoin after the fix in bitcoind 0.6.2 is public

Speaking of that, what is the recommended transaction fee to be included in a LTC block?

An attacker could isolate a victim's node and cause the creation of blockchain forks.

Someone needs to "patch" the code.

An attacker could isolate a victim's node and cause the creation of blockchain forks.

Someone needs to "patch" the code.

That would only affect the "isolated node". A blockchain fork of litecoin would not affect the real main blockchain from what this sounds like.

As in the past a block chain fork the coins created would not be accepted (i.e. rejected) from the main blockchain.

Hello, so please somebody tell me if I can delete the files in %appdata%\Litecoin\database
Why the heck does it keep growing and occupies 33GB now? I have now 330 log.000000xxxx files each with 100MB size. Is this normal?
