Hello,
I would like to incorporate FPGAs/ASICS into future computers I build as the bitcoin world has a market that I could use once I can get my computer building business off the ground.What FPGAs/ASICs are most straightforward to the end user as I wish to sell pre made rigs to miners as well while selling non mining pcs for the general public (those who wish to just use the web as well as those who play games)

I will have to get a loan at some point so I could order the parts should my customers (who don't have access to the internet now) decide that they wish to get into mining or just to buy a premade computer from me.

I hear that the devices made by butteryfly labs are good.What can you tell me about them? I cant post anywhere yet due to my status on here.

Looks like the bitforce units are the best to buy for my customers.Highest performance for good balance of power use and cost per unit.Time to secure funding for the pre ordering for a few customers of my business.I plan to start selling to people who tend to be offline most of the time (not internet savvy) as I want to try out something where I get as many customers as possible to mine off their down payments for the computers they purchase.Plan goes something like this
customer buys a computer with the bitforce unit and can't pay full price now.They pay a 30% deposit then pay later.
Customer then plugs their 'loan purchased computer' at their home
The mining program is set to auto start on their computer which will then 'mine off' the payment price bit by bit so that I can get money while the customer has little pressure.A contract for the customer will be signed meaning they have to run their computer for 400 hours a month and not to tamper with the bitforce miner and mining app until the 'debt' is paid off.

This is an very experimental payment option in addition to those who want to pay normally (USD,EUR etc)

I could use a few people to invest in my idea if they find it interesting so I can get this off the ground for my new company.Sent bitcoins to my address in sig if you wish.

This would be a better service if you used GPUs, because they are actually used by the computer for things other than mining...

Of course GPUs have to be there.Every computer needs to display what it's doing like web surfing/encoding media files/gaming etc.

Just stumbled across this thread and so far the information on FPGAs looks interesting.I do wonder if my colleagues at the office who are into 'mining' bitcoins could benefit from this as the utility bill seems to have gone up a lot recently in the office I manage.It's not banned to mine since I'm still getting to grips with the bitcoin concept myself so it wouldn't be fair to ban those who wish to mine bitcoins just because the concept is new to me.

We could have teams where different offices in the workplace (my workplace) would mine and the team who mines most would win a prize as well as being the most efficient.

Hell yeah it does lol

If I was an IT Manager again (GOD I miss those days) I would do something like that hahahaha

To OP ...

MINE man!  It is SO fun!  We need more miners to keep BTC alive!
