So, how to start. What does it take to make $10 a week or what will your hardware/GPU's accomplish in producing Bitcoin?

What are your cards potential?

2 X 5850

First go here:

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_Hardware_ComparisonThis will give you an idea of what others can do with the card you post.

It looks like your card can produce between 240 MH/s - 431 MH/s, of course we like higher numbers.

The average hashrate for all 5850 listed is 342.58 MH/s.

The average of the top 13 is 400.6 MH/s (This is the number you can hope to achieve with better tuning.)

So we can say 1 card has a potential to produce 400 meghashes per second, how many Bitcoins is that?

Go here:

Then go here:

Weighted Avg:$5.76598

Now, enter the current price in dollars that 1 BTC is trading for into box #3 and press "Calculate".

______Coins Dollars

per Day ฿0.29 $1.68

per Week ฿2.04 $11.76

per Month ฿8.87 $51.06

This means that one 5850 card, at the current difficulty rate, could produce $11.76 US per week. If you have 2 cards than that is twice as good.
