Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

So much for fear. I've invested $80 in a 5830 and $40 in an Antec VP450 and used some of my spare parts with a motherboard box as a case with holes cut for venting. Accumulated ~30BTC and recently spent most of it on a pre-order with BFL. Started playing around with p2pool. But over 24-hours later my "Payout if a block were found NOW:" is only 0.17BTC. I expected less but I can make 0.4-0.45BTC with a centralized pool...

With any available graphics card today, how far ahead of power costs can you be? My ATI 4870 pulls about 100W, costing roughly twice in power what it mines.

p2pool seems to be having problems and regularly performing far under par what "standard" pools pull.

Depends on the card and the cost of your electricity.

The 4xxx series is the oldest series to have OpenCL support... and the least efficient. That said, it all depends. In Ontario, electricity rates average <0.09$ (we have different rates for different times of the day, as low as 0.06$ at night). If I were paying electricity, I would still break even.
