As the title says, which of the two offer more profit for myself.

I have a 3 GHash/s rig, and mine at OzCoin. So I can either Bitcoin mine (what I am doing now), or Merge Mine.

Which one offers more profit my end, or are they basically the same, eg some times merged pas more other times it pays less.

Cheers

I thought ozcoin had merged mining?  Anyway merged mining gives you an extra 0.5% abouts so I don't see why you wouldn't do it.

Merged mining is basically a freeroll since it won't need more resource so do it if you like money.

Could I in any way receive less than mining bitcoin itself?

Thanks

1 ghash mining bitcoins and 1ghash merged mining will get the exact same amount of bitcoins. with merge mining you will have the opportunity to get namecoins too, but you have to set up proper namecoin address and client and all that stuff. imo merge mining isnt worth the hastle. last I checked, it was maybe 0.5% extra bitcoins if you exchanged your namecoin for bitcoin

From what I understand, if you mine with slush's pool(mining.bitcoin.cz) and you don't specify a Namecoin address, you still generate them, but your reward goes to the miners that specified a namecoin address. So, with that I made some profit at the beginning of merged mining.
