Mainstreamed. It's on every new channels and tv show, so the masses are buying it up.

If you want to get into mining your out of luck. I looked everywhere, even $5000 ASIC miner cards are backordered for a year or more.

Dear lord :O

I do have a capable mining graphics card though, but it's probably already too late to get in on this isn't it?

It depends on what you are wanting to be mining.

Pretty good atm, although your gonna need a bit more gpu power to really make a decent go at it. I've got the same gpu (albeit mine's on the reference 7970 board w/ 6+8 pin pwr.) under a heatkiller block that's turning out 727 kh/s, and it's not at it's max oc yet.


Throw in a 6970 or an unlocked 6950 like I have, and it's good for another 500-535 kh/s, which will net you > $600/mo. taking your power bill into consideration (assuming you're paying less than $.15 per kw/hr, & the current value of Litecoin holds steady).

Would another 270x in Crossfire be worthwhile?

I also have a 7970 PCB 7950 with a pretty big overclock on it (stable at 1200MHz @ 1.131V) and electricity is 'free' at university.

So LiteCoins are still worth it? What about FTC?

You'll be gambling on FTC's price going up when mining it. ATM, LTC > FTC.

Couldn't really answer on the FTC as I'm all new to mining stuff myself, & I can't really claim to have in depth knowledge on the subject. Comparatively speaking, my TF3 is pulling those numbers at 1260 core and 1765 on the memory @ 1.3VDC. I'm still tweaking cgminer settings before I go to max clocks though, and to be fair, there may very well be some more gains to be had from me doing so. thumb.gif

Free electricity is always a bonus where mining is concerned. wink.gif I'm paying $.10 per kw/h up to usage exceeding 1500 kw/hr/mo, so yeah, it's definitely worth it to me. Plus I'm on a co-op power company, I'll see a nice dividend back at the end of the fiscal year too. Lol!

So I am noticing that when I bump my current clocks,  1175 on core and 1500 on memory, higher and higher, I begin to lose kh/s. What is that junk about?
