post #6701 of 22321
Bad news for me. I was trying to max out my hash rates, by running Protoshares miners on CPU (@4.6Ghz), and CUDAminer on GPU (with -H 2 in GPU mode only), Well it seems my motherboard didnt like that so it gave out on me. Being and ROG board, I would have thought it would have held up alot better, seeing as I was only on 1 GPU. Well that haults my mining untill I get my board back from RMA. Well, with nothing invested, this puts me back $15 for shipping/handling, so with the coins I have currently, im coming out about even. Well ill still be watching the markets. Now with my system down, might invest in a 280X, and put in second, when i get my ROI from the first.

FYI, Fry's is not price gouging their 280X. its only $320 there compared to $400 everywhere else.

Word to the wise...be cautious. Run you system safely and efficiently to protect your investment. If you blow up your computer trying to max it out and it blows up...you lost it all.

Does anyone know if there is a BAMT build with the 290 drivers already? I know you can install them via SSH, but I am trying to avoid that.

BitCoin Miner

Is this something that is somewhat profitable?

Also, is this something that counts as a income to the federal and state governments?

How are the funds typically transferred? I saw that you can have the funds transferred to a bank account. What about to other forms? Say Direct Deposit to like Paypal?

And based on my current hardware, (GTX560SE), would it be something that would be worth mining with?

I was running my Gtx 660 just to learn how to run the miners and my hash rate was pitiful @ like 77Mh/s. So unfortunately no, as much as I love my 660, Nvidia is not for mining. Also, so many people have special equipment to mine that far out ways GPU mining that even if you didn't pay for electricity you would grow old before seeing a profit. However you can still make some coins on fairly inexpensive Radeon cards. Hope you get up and going on the correct path smile.gif
Google mining hardware comparison and take a look at the wiki page on it.

That sucks, although mining is pretty stressful on components. One of my 1-2 week old 280x already has a nasty fan rattle at high rpm. But I doubt I could RMA it, newegg would probably just want to refund me, even though their worth $100 more now... so I'll just keep it going until it doesn't, and hopefully ASUS will get some stock built up and I can RMA it through them later on.

Nice find on Fry's though, until everyone finds out and they get sold out too biggrin.gif

Latest version of BAMT has updated drivers, it recognizes 200 series cards. The guy who made it updated it like a week ago, and its brilliant now. That's what I've been using.

This is about 5-6xxx series Nvidia mind you, if you spend the cash then heck ya 680-780 would be great.

Comparatively, for the same price as one 780ti (two 280x's) yeilds ~1500khash. So no, nvidia is still garbage for mining.

I don't know what you people are doing that yeilds such terrible hashrates for your cards, but they are waaaaay low. A gtx660 non ti should be yeilding around 210-250 khash. 660ti should be up to 280-290 khash.
