Hi! I'd like to get started with mining, but since nvidia cards suck at it I need to know how much I can make (in dollars please, dont understand the whole concept of BTC yet) with my current rig (the one with the Titan) per month or per day.

Also, is it possible to mine with an AMD card installed in the Titan rig and still get the benefits of an AMD card during mining?

Also, why is it that nvidia cards cant mine at the same level as AMD cards?

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate the help! smile.gif

I'm going to starting mining as soon as I build my new rig next month. I will buy a 7950 and put it in my current rig and leave it at my job mining 24/7 tongue.gif. Then i'll buy another 7950 and new mobo after I've made enough. I'll be mining also on my main rig which probably will be using the 8000 series gpu when i'm away. So I hope i'll make some extra cash to help fund my weed and help pay my bills thumb.gif. I'm so excited to start, you guys are awesome. I think I'll most likely use Multipool too.

But I have a few questions.

I've read a lot about ACSI mining making GPU mining obsolete on some coins like Bitcoin is that going to happen to the other coins ? sad-smiley-002.gif . I've also heard about wallets being hacked into, so some people have off line wallets ? Are those reliable ?

I just hope HD8000 is not a re fresh and in feb march something 40% faster comes out at the same price.

not really.. scrypt will require board with a lot of DDR memory on it and a lot of programming will be needed and won't be near 6ghs.

You can install an amd card there and mine, but drivers are really picky. I'd reccomend using a pendrive with BAMT linux for scrypt mining and don't install mixed drivers on Windows.
Mine when not gaming, when gaming reboot into Windows.

You can head to yacointalk.org and start mining YAC with your card and cpu (it's a cpu optimized coin exchangeable for btc at bter.com and cryptsy.com)

You can make an fpga easily, you just need people to program it for you...that demands some $$$ to mass-produce but it's perfectly doable, only that the market wasn't big enough to warrant such attention.

I noticed Amazon has some powered PCI-E risers for sale. Anyone have any experience with these?

I'd suggest www.buyahash.com for that...all risers come from China and if not tested previously they can be DOA. (lots are)

Risers are a must have, they make cards run way cooler and let you use whatever board you want for mining. Powered ones are great when you run out of 16x slots.
Some tips:

-1x to 1x works on any kind of slot
-1x to 16x also works on 16x slots
-Powered only matters when you use 1x slots for gpus

yes but for scrypt you need loads of memory bandwidth which typically FPGA's do not have..and could be too expensive to even bother vs buying a video card

Ive bought through http://www.amazon.com/Micro-SATA-Cables-Express-Flexible/dp/B0057M16Q8/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1371849911&sr=1-2&keywords=PCie+riser they are US based so they arrive much sooner, like other guy said you only really need powered cables for the 1x pcie to x16 cables

Thanks for the link! I know the general consensus is that powered risers are only need for x1 slots, but I went ahead and ordered 3 PCI-E x16 powered risers from them. Just four bucks extra each seemed worth it, if only for the peace of mind. Figured they wouldn't hurt, anyway.

Any idea how long they typically take to ship things out?
