so i would really like to get into this. i could pick up a couple of 7000 series AMD GPU's and be good to go? i curently have a core i7 as well. could you do cpu and gpu mining at the same time on the same system?

would it be worth buying just 2 cards or would i need to shell out for something like this? im sure its been asked before but any answers would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Profitability scales linearly with cards added...only thing to keep in mind is amount of cards per psu/board/cpu. That does impact profitability in larger scales.

You can do the CPU and GPU mining at the same time, I just have yet to figure out how to use only specified cores.

i understand. i have a board that will run 2 cards i see that AMD cards work the best i would like to just run a single computer and make some profit, but i understand this is getting harder to do. what would be a decent investment for something like this? would i be waisting my time with a single, dual GPU system?

that means your intensity is too high.

lol ya i know it sucks, but before investing in a card i wanted to go through the whole process from mine to paper money in my wallet.

i underclocked my card and set intensity to its lowest. also installed the cuda kit or something. still crashes.

So, how much does mining affect doing other things on your computer?

I've recently become unable to fold while doing other things on my computer due to how laggy it makes everything, so i'd like to see how mining works out while I'm doing things, and folding when not.

Also, i've been reading the guide in the OP for mining Litecoins, but I can't seen to download cgminer from the site, it always gives me a network error.
