Can you change gpu voltage using afterburner? If you can't increase it then you'll be limited oc wise.

Try these cgminer settings please, before jumping to conclusions: --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 18 -g 1 -w 256 -v 1 --gpu-memclock 1250 --gpu-engine 850

Also uninstall those drivers and install catalyst 12.8 and sdk 2.8...your card isn't a newer gen card, those drivers slow it down.

I uninstalled and went down to Catalyst 12.8 and SDK 2.8 - now CGminer crashes every time I try to start it.

EDIT: I've had to undo both Catalyst 12.8 AND SDK 2.8 to get CGminer working again. With just 12.8 and no SDK it will load CGminer but won't recognize the graphics card because of missing OpenGL files.

In short, your config suggestion was great, and your software recommendations were rubbish. I still +REP'd you for the config suggestion.

Does everyone think the ASICs for Scrypt are going to be that much more efficient per dollar than a GPU setup right now? I've heard these great target hash rates, but most working prototypes I've read about have hash rates pretty much at the same level as GPUs per cost. So yea, they'll have massive hash rates... for massive costs.

What I'm getting at it is, is it really worth it right now to be worried about ASICs? Really until I see some that are half the price and double the power, they're not going to kill the mining market (yet). I think this is due to the way that (if I understand correctly) the SHA-256 algorithms didn't need any memory, really. But scrypt depends heavily on memory, which adds cost and size to the chips that ASICs will have (and thus less efficient than SHA-256 ASICs).

The new config settings have boosted the card up to ~416 Kh/sec, but it renders the computer pretty much unusable for web browsing while its mining (I could barely type this message up on it due to the input lag on everything i typed).

What does SDK 2.8 provide?

I've had a 6950 myself mate...you clearly didn't uninstall AMD drivers properly, only thing I can think of.

Nah, I won't worry about that just now...just mine and enjoy, ROI doesn't take too long and gpus can be reutilized, say password cracking or render farm.

The cost will follow with the hashrates, it takes around 40(ish) days give or take to pay off your GPU hardware, then it is pure profit after electricity. With ASICS getting the same hashrate/$ they will be paid for in 40 or so days even with the cost of 10k or w/e they will be. After this initial period HUGE profits will be realized by the owners.

I haven't switched over to the middlecoin eu server yet but do people encounter middlecoin sitting idle for long periods of time? It says something about connection being interrupted.. It was doing that alot last night but it would always be followed by that gpu "requesting work" then "resuming work" and finally accepted work. But this time it was just sitting there saying connection interrupted with gpu fans at idle. Any insight? To use the eu version if middlecoin do i just put "eu.middlecoin.com" instead with same user and password?

The best way to uninstall Catalyst is to use ATIman uninstaller.

I ran xptProxy program, and in the terminal it mentioned a port. So i put that port into the Miner port field.
In Host field i entered "Ypool.net"
For my worker, i entered my Ypool account username then my workers name. So
Accountname.WorkerName

When i clicked start it says "No servers could be used! Exiting".

I had the exact same issue as you with CGMiner constantly crashing. I used GUIMiner instead eventually and it seemed to work, I was never able to figure out why CGMiner didn't work straight out of the box, bit GUIMiner did. I had a similar setup as you too, just a single 6950 flashed to 6970.

Guys, if you had an opportunity to sell a Gigabyte WF3 for $375, would you do it?

I'm in this position, sell, or keep mining with it. If I sold it, I'd be down to just a 7850 mining at around 370KH/s, so about a third of my current total power.
