Is there any reason why that is. Its currently a mid gaming laptop with quad core.
I might need to make another thread but I'm moving into a new place this month and I'm looking to make a mid range mining machine.
If you are making a mining machine, you are going to need ATI-based video cards. Nvidia's strongest factor in graphics is it's floating-point math, where the bitcoin algorithm only uses integer math (ATI's strong suit)
It's all about the architecture of the cards, and I could explain further, but I would get it wrong, and someone else would correct me...
Basically, get an ATI card, throw into desktop, and you are good to go.
