I might have to snag a few myself xD
Mining is still really profitable here...

Say if i mined Litecoin or Bitcoin (whatever was stable and profitable), and i had a 0,06 kWh
And total power use of 400W
How much profit would i be making each month?

You'd make a decent amount...

any idea why a card (5870) would register as sick or dead in cgminer after 15 or so min but pass every benchmark and stress test in another pc?

also setting up mining on the pc i tested the card in will still result in a sick or dead gpu so its not the board(s)

Mining is more stressful than most stress tests.

Could be many reasons why that would happen.
What temp is the card hitting before it dies?

running in the low 70s at 75% fan speed for a few days (temp fluxiations never broke 75c) before i started having this problem. I plugged it into another computer and ran a 20 min furmark test along with back to back 3dmark vantage and Heaven benches and all was fine its just mining that it has a problem with

Their chart shows a 290X is about 10% faster than a 7970
Power consumption varies depending on settings, they showed it can draw anywhere from 225W to 295W+. Their 7970 power draw was 268W

That's mining SHA-256 not Scrypt. But they tend to scale together I believe.

They had this to say on the matter of power consumption/gpgpu performance:
So according to them, this card might have issues preventing it from being a good mining card. Though I don't know how much time they spent trying to tune it for mining, or how the results would change if they were mining Scrypt.
But it overall looks to be roughly on par with a 7970 in terms of hashes/watt. And only slightly faster overall. Which means it's not going to change anything in the bitmining arena.
There's also the potential that scrypt hasn't been optimized for a 290X yet either. The guy who wrote CGMiner was talking about how he'd only program for the 290X if someone donated one to him.

We need to wait for software support before mining with them.

As for the sick gpu, those are symptoms of an about to die card if it was mining fine and you didn't fiddle with settings lately.
If you never mined for long periods of time it means your configuration is wrong.

I refer you to this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=117221.0

It hadnt been for but a few days and this was my first go at mining it was in a rig with 3 other 5870s those all still run ok (no sick gpus) just that one.

Ill give that link you gave me a read thanks
