This is the prime reason I stay away from altcoins till the reach a certain critical mass. I'm okay with risks, just not the kind where an entire coin can be invalidated overnight by a one-man attack.

+1, also some coins are apparently profitable but when you go to dump your mined coins price doesn't saty put very long and you end up getting less than you projected.
Why I suggest to mine big coins like FTC, WDC, DGC, LTC, MNC or MEC and only when each is more profitable or lower fdifficulty than the rest.

Now - I have a 280x on the way for my main rig to replace the 7950 (currently just on a laptop). But with this extra $925 (after fees and shipping), would it be reasonable to buy some parts and put together a mining rig? I was planning on getting 4 R9 270s (not x) since they just require a single 6-pin power connector. Electricity cost is not a problem for me, electricity in Lubbock is dirt cheap. And when I say dirt cheap, I mean it. Currently something like $0.0214 per kWh. My last month's power bill was $22 (not a typo). Lack of central heating/air as well as no dishwasher is a large reason for this (Gas powered heater - gas is part of water bill, paid by landlord).

270s (reportedly) get about 450KH/s each, so a 4x 270 rig would be getting probably around 1.5 - 1.75MH/s. If I were to do this, what kind of power would that use? I would be using a cheap dual-core processor, so really the only power would be used by the cards. And scrypt mining is affected purely by the graphics cards, correct? RAM doesn't really play into it much at all?

Regular 270 non x won't get 450, ever...it's a slower clocked 270x (or a 7870 basically).
I wouldn't get those cards, I'm sure you can do better with 5870,5850,6950 that unlocks or a 6970. If possible aim for 7950s or a 280X.

If you get a connecting message the pool you chose is not working currently. I heard the EU ip wasnt working anymore for beeeeer. Which one are you using?

Good enough for me, get ready to dump.

I just got offered a ~$375 for my 7950 on craigslist. Should I sell it for that price or should I keep it and mine myself?

I heard that custom ASICs for LTC and scrypt based coins are coming. Is it a good idea.to sell? I seem to not be able to not be able to get a sustainable hash rate over 450 on my card and it doesn't OC well at sll either so it actually is underperforming

That's a good sell for a 7950

The ASIC for scrypt won't be here anytime soon.

You can always mine Alt-Coins like FTC and make a lot more profit.

450 is pretty low, what settings are you using?
