Any help will be appreciated. For the pro who can guide me through my setup, I will be more than happy to donate some BTC to you or some USD to you for your time and help.
What I am looking for.
I am building atleast 5 2x 6990 riggs so mining power will be atleast 6.5ghash/s . If things work out that will be doubled to 10 riggs with a total of 13ghash/s.
I want to know what is the best way to set this up so all my riggs dont compete with each other on blocks, and mine to 1 global wallet, or what ever way is the most efficient to do so.
Also, I would like to know if it is better to go with ubuntu or windows?
Lastly, I would like to set up a mining pool for the future. Any help will be appreciated thanks!
Each card gets their own work, and work toward getting an answer to generate a block, they do not compete with each other.
The best way would probably to set up bitcoin on 1 computer and set up the bitcoin.conf to accept connections from clients on the network then connect all clients on the network to it. This is quite easy to do.
OS is a personal preference. 1 benefit that linux has under windows is not having to have a monitor or dummy plug plugged into every card, if you're not using crossfire, like windows needs to be able to mine on it. Crossfire doesn't give the best performance you can get.
This is your own pool. If you're talking about setting up a pool so other people can connect to it, that's a totally different topic.
