I can easily find 5-6 used 780s ranging from $420-450

Its a pain in the ass to find used AMD cards, and new ones are overpriced as hell frown.gif

Its risky to invest into nv cards because there are not that many options if this falls through.
dont know what to doooooo


PS: tip for your guide, plug your monitor into integrated gpu to avoid lag while browsing. Also, hows the CPU mining guide coming along?

Thank you I will add that tip to the OP. I made a video last night for the CPU mining guide which is in the OP as well...would you like a written guide too?

oh, I missed it.
The video does very good job explaining things.

THank you

forgot to ask, how do you determine 1024 or 512 ram?

say I have 16gb ram, should I use 512 or 1024

http://www.overclock.net/t/1464024/guide-mine-on-amd-nv-gpu-in-same-pc/0_40

Hey guys

I made a quick guide on how to run amd and nvidia gou in the same pc for mining if anyone is interested its here.

Ok, just for the heck of it I overclocked higher, from 1150 to 1250, and picked up 300 cpm. Looks like arCUDA is more sensitive to GPU clocks than PTSGpuZ was, at least on my 780 Ti setup.

So AMD is in the game now, hopefully the difficulty level doesn't increase.... Now I gotta pick up a few more 780s cuz of them....

its same for ptsgpuz, for me the GPU clock made a big difference

Bummer about the amd card thing. I agree mining is a hard investment right now. Nvidia is a big question mark and amd is way over priced

did some testing on CPU miner.

4770k @ 4.7ghz
16gb ram @ 2400hz

all cores/ 512 ram = ~300 cpm
all cores/1024 ram= 290 cpm
6 cores/512 ram= 270 cpm
6 cores/1024=220 cpm

Has anybody done testing on different driver versions and how they perform? I'm wondering if it's similar to F@H where any driver version past 327.23 would result in garbage performance. It would make sense because they both utilize CUDA, right?
