Hi, i'm a bit confused and been trying a few pools to see what the differences are.

Can anyone enlighten me what pool or what should i be looking for with 450Mh/s? I believe that there are a few others with the same doubts.
I mean, should i be looking for a big pool with lots of hashing power, or a small pool with users in the same power range? and why?

Thanks

No, in most cases your hashrate is not important.
Things that matter:
  • How frequently do you want to get your rewards ?
  • Is reward variation caused by luck ok for you or you would prefer fixed payment per share (this almost means fixed reward per hour) ?
  • Do you care mostly about getting more bitcoins or helping to decentralize the network ?

Give the mt. red pool a shot. It's true pay per share (absolutely no variance) and 0% fee. I -just- started on it, and I have high hopes for it. It's been around for over a year.

Hi, i'm on maxbtc.com, right now. Been on mining.bitcoin.cz, btcguild, eclipseemc... What i realize in some big pools is that the hash power is so much i don't have time to hash... specially in score based pools, i get almost nothing.

Of course i'm in this for some money, but i like the idea of bitcoin, and like the idea that it's not centralized. That's what i don't think it happens in those huge pools. I would solo mine if i hadn't so low hash power. I know all about the pool comparison, but that doesn't answer the question or doubt that i have.

A constant or reliable payment for my shares, on a weekly or monthly basis, the most profitable of course. At the moment i aim at 1 BTC every 4 or 5 days. 4.1235 days to be exact, with 0% fee. I want to make the most BTC with my current equipment. I'm not into trading, i want the actual bitcoins and want to trade with them.

Ozcoin is a good choice for a primary pool.  I would then use Deepbit and/or BTC Guild as a backup pool and then another small pool and solo miner as the next two backup's.

I have a similar has rate as you and get a BTC every 3 or 4 days, maybe 4 to 5 now with the higher difficulty.  Sounds like your in line with your hash rate.
Happy hashing,
Sam
