The network tries to produce one block per 10 minutes. It does this by automatically adjusting how difficult it is to produce blocks.

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://bitfinex.com <-- leveraged trading of BTCUSD, LTCUSD and LTCBTC (long and short) - 10% discount on fees for the first 30 days with this refcode: x5K9YtL3Zb

yes i agree to this, but you should still invest in btc like $200 to $500 if you can afford it.
