Hey guys,

I'm a newbie (obviously) and I was wondering about these two Bitcoin mining pools. With both my rigs I can generate up to 800Mh/s. I used a bitcoin mining calculator and it told me I could make 3.75 USD. Now, I know this means via Pay-per-share or something like that but... what I want to know is, even though Deepbit has a higher Mh/s rate, will I make more or less if I switch to it?

Would I make the same amount with either of them?

They should pay roughly the same. Deepbit is generally favored as paying slightly more last I checked (this was mostly due to a higher stale rate on Slush's pool, which is no longer a factor [AFAIK] after a significant infrastructure overhaul), and it is theoretically possible for "pool hoppers" to exploit Slush's pool (however, that information is months old -- I am not certain if it's still true).

You may also want to consider Mt. Red @ which does PPS but doesn't charge a fee, as well as Eclipse Mining Pool @ (no fee) if you don't mind short-term variability in how much you're paid. They maintain operation based on donations - so whatever you feel they deserve, they get. It's also generally considered "community service" to mine on pools which are not particularly large, for if a pool were able to secure roughly the majority or more of hashing power, the pool operator would be able to perform what's called a "51% attack" (see for what it is and how the devs are working to prevent this situation).

Cheers & happy mining!

ETA: I left out Graet's OzCoin @ - which is funny, because I mine there. They share similarities with EMC, but OzCoin better-supports (AFAIK) FPGAs, which I'm guessing isn't really a concern for you.

I would suggest neither
Deepbit has the highest fees on PPS
both Slush and Deepbits propotional are hopped - thus reducing regular miners income
there are various PPS pools with lower fees for those that don't like variance
for those that don't mind some variance 0fee DGM is a fair (unhoppable) payout method
