As a tipp:

Read the wiki pages first, there are comparisons of GPUs (how much hashing power they deliver) and also some backgrounds about bitcoin (or: why every ~10 days (currently) you will get ~40% less income (currently)).

https://www.coinlend.org <-- automated lending at various exchanges. No fees(!).
