Ive been trying different miners, but damn there's alot of difference.

BitMinter = 650 Mhash/s
phoenix-1.7.2 = 640 Mhash/s (-k phatk2 DEVICE=0 VECTORS BFI_INT AGGRESSION=7)
guiminer = 500 Mhash/s


I cant really get guiminer to work properly - im getting alot of unexpected errors, and the GPU load is like a sawtooth.
And phoenix gives me quite a few "work queue empty, miner is idle" :/

Which miner and settings would you guys recommend for a HD5970 ?

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

It depends somewhat on the card. With 58x0 cards Ive found bitminter to be among the fastest, but cgminer is still a hair faster, and has some nifty features like pool management, fanspeed, clockspeed etc tweaking. It is a bit a of a pita to configure, and its also not been too stable for me lately although that might be fixed now in the git tree.

ATI is better for mining, but for nVidia cards, create a new CUDA miner within the file menu of GUIMiner and try tuning the aggression, gputhreads, and gpugrid parameters.

On Windows, every miner is a little crap - it must be the contagious crappiness of Redmond-based software that's causing that Smiley

I recommend running the text-mode miners on a separate virtual desktop do they don't get in your way.
The problem is, Windows isn't quite up to speed on multiple desktops, to say the very least.
You can grab a free utility by Sysinternals Microsoft here:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc817881(1)
Run it, move all the miners, putty, vnc and what-not windows out of your main desktop and you're good to go!

Notes:
(1)   While you're there, do notice that the desktops utility requires no fancy installer and is just 60 kilobytes in size. That's how coding is done! Microsoft eventually purchased Sysinternals to obtain all their utilities.

running on my 6300m i find guiminer is the best (according to its own stats...) giving me 10.8
next in line is bitminter with a steady 10.4
after i played with cgminer for an hour and couldn't scrape more than 10 out of it, i decided to give it a miss.

think it really depends on your card, however you should get alot better from guiminer than you are!

try flags -v -w256 (also -f0 from max speed but major desktop lag)
another thing to check is: guiminer only works on 1 GPU - you might need to launch it twice to activate both cores (anyone confirm that?)
