That is some mad hash there!
I mine for lolz since this 780 cant do much, plus there isnt a proper GUI which makes me hate to do this :/

Can someone please help me setup CGminer or BFminer please. I can not get either one to pick up my video cards and I have beta 9.5 install and AMD APP SDK. ANY help would greatly appreciated!

CGminer should be almost a no-brainer. If you've got the drivers and the SDK installed... just drop (unpack) CGMiner somewhere in a folder and make a .bat file with your connection string.

Nothing else should be required - it should detect your GPUs right off.

Are you getting weird errors reported back or something?

For example my batch file for one of my 7970s:
cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://ltc.give-me-coins.com:3333 -u digicidal.2 -p y -I 13 -g 2 -w 256 --shaders 2048

That's it... no extra stuff, one line in a txt file changed to .bat and then double click on that. biggrin.gif Obviously you would have more shaders on your 290x so edit that part accordingly.

Once that is working to your satisfaction - then you can add the two lines for the SDK calls at the top or you can just make a second batch file for them (they only need to be called ONCE - regardless of the number of CGMiner starts/restarts AFAIK).

EDIT:
These are the two lines for the APP SDK (if you didn't know already):
GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1
GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100

As stated, you can put them above your cgminer call in the batch file - or you can make a second one and just run it at the start of each reboot (of the machine) - the setting should hold even if you restart cgminer.

The 7870 and 6870 are my friends who mine for me if I give them small things like a game here and there etc. I recently sold the 7970's and 7950's and replacing them with R9 290's. I bought 2 7970's on eBay last week for $425 for both but at the current prices I will probably turn around and sell them back on eBay for $800 and get 2 more 290's. My goal is to have only 290's mining by January. Hopefully 7 in total.

Nice. Depending on how much I can make/decide to hold on to, I do plan to get another 290. Also, since I'm going to be getting my 290 really soon, can anyone help me with a config or even bat file so that I can mine LTC and FTC at the same time?

Congrats ^ lol


Does system ram matter at all for a gpu mining rig? Assume linux as the OS. I figured 2gb was enough, not sure if it hurts or helps the mining though.

How does a quad 280x mining rig for oh, roughly $1500 sound? Is that a worthwhile investment?

Is it possible to calculate the LTC difficulty rise? Maybe someone knows of a calculator for it, or is it something like this...

Difficulty increases every 3 days, at roughly +300 per rise. Would that be a good rough estimate at all?

So many questions biggrin.gif

I found it didn't really help that much - but it does slightly. Mostly it bogs the desktop down for the sake of a few extra hashes - but if it's a dedicated miner, then I would definitely use it. If you're mining while doing things (browsing, email, etc... - not gaming obviously) then try it without first and with second... you can reduce the intensity a little to help if necessary, but otherwise I can't really tell the difference. I just installed it because it was recommended on most of the optimum setups (the ones with best hashrates for my GPUs). biggrin.gif

Pretty awesome man! In 2 years when I graduate medical school and IFC are 5 cents (crossing fingers) I'll be getting this

I hope you're paying cash for medical school... otherwise you'll need that IFC cashout just to get out of debt. biggrin.gif

(Of course, then you can easily get an R8 in a couple years of residency without concern.)
