If anything is pushing non professional miners out it is heat (and to a lesser extent noise), not profit. Most are using existing hardware, and some have their PC running 24/7 anyway thus the only cost is the difference in power usage between idle and full load.

I think a lot of people don't realize how it adds up over time either...

With the recent difficulty increase, some people who just started mining on their home computers might've been seeing $4 worth or so of BTC come in per day, and just think it's not worth it.  But $4/day is $120/month.  When you're on as tight a budget as I am, then $120 is a LOT of money!

Hey, That's TWO "free" Video games a month. I think that's freaking GREAT for dealing with a little noise and warmth.
