Im newer to the whole Bitcoin idea. I have looked at some of the GPU lists of how much hashes I should be producing. I'm currently getting around 14.32-20.0 MH/s.

If anyone has a similar graphics card would you please post your stats.

that looks about right for what you should be getting with that card.

As you may already know, nvidia is the pits for mining bitcoins.

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...  Roll Eyes

Basically, get an ATI card, throw into desktop, and you are good to go.

Donations are welcome!

Does it matter if I buy a top of a line graphics card for $1000 or $2 decent ones for like $150 each?

Google "mining hardware comparison." Look at the results and decide for yourself.

As of now, the best Mhs/$ card is the 5830, and the best mhs/watt is either the 5970 or 7970.

Also, it is not economically viable mining with the card you have now. It costs much more in electricity than it brings you in earned Bitcoins.

You can of course mine at a loss just for the hell of it (and helping to protect the network Smiley)
