You most definitely can, in fact I do that when gaming...leave my 6950 chugging along in the back while my 7950 runs the games.
Just remember to asign one core to the mining program (core affinity in task manager)

If you have cheap power bills, yeah, for sure...if you have one already. If not get 7950s, or cheap used 6950s and flash to 6970. Those are the best value atm.
I'd wait to see what the 8970 and 8950 have to offer though.

FTC has been like that for a while now, like two months...I'd pass on it and just focus on other alts with a brighter future. (digital coin, litecoin, world coin, mincoin maybe?, franko, hyper coin)

For me, multipool.in decided to mine it one last time or something. So I'm trying to get the coins mined and sell it as soon as I can. Now it's in a limbo. mad.gif

Seems to be good, but you're drawing ****loads of power with such core voltage and seriously hampering the cards life expectancy. You're better off trying to find the highest core speed you can run at 1.1v and tweaking thread concurrency, intensity and number of threads to compensate. I've seen people get the same hash rate with a 7950 btw, with less core and mem speed.

What driver are you using? What sdk version?
You need to do a clean driver install (use amd clean utility, reboot in safe mode, repeat, reboot and install 12.8 or 13.5 with SDK 2.7). SDK 2.8 breaks mining performance and I suspect that's the case with your setup. With those clocks and properly tweaked you should be way over 700kh/s with a 7970.

Basically yeah, you help sustain a "banking" worlwide network so to speak, helping validate transactions and getting people's money from one wallet to another.

Nice little tidbit from mcxnow chat:

"realsolid: jeronimus: 30K + orders i think, who knows how many 50GH
jeronimus: realsolid wow... you know what that means if they really delivered all that?
jeronimus: let's say just 10k 50gh/s units. The network hashrate would quadruple
realsolid: yep
jeronimus: add to that the knc asics and you wuold have another 2x
realsolid: unless someone comes out with even faster and cheaper asics, once this BFL batch is out i cant see why many would buy them
jeronimus: so yep, by oct we would be looking at 10x difficulty
realsolid: if btc price rises significantly, it could balance it out
jeronimus: my unit will be profitable still, but nothing special. If the price drops it might even have been a bad investment
jeronimus: that along with the risk of never getting it... makes it quite a risky investment
realsolid: yep, the risk to play was earlier this year
jeronimus: i really thought there are already many asics out there
realsolid: right now its pretty insane to buy in
ivanlagru: definitely"

So, even Hokies order from Feb might have been a bad investment by then.

Litecoin or digitalcoin?

Thinking about picking up some 7790s or whatever 8/9k series card in the same performance/power envelope. I'm finding if I can maximize the hash rate while staying within the consumption of a single 7970 I'd incur a very minor increase in my power bill and make a pretty decent profit even with the high electricity costs
