I will keep using PB Mining as I think there's a 3 month ROI and 4 years and 9 months of profit, even if it decrease each month.
I keep you update about that... wink.gif

I'll keep GPU mining, that's what I really found interesting about this "cryptocoin stuff."

If it is 8% now you will make about 36% back in 8 weeks. Then probably another 20% back for the next 44 weeks. And about 2% back for the next 4 years total adding all profits for the 4 years would not even go over the 2% the original investment.

Here is how you calculate something like this. Every 10 days the difficulty increase 15% So take your 8% and times it by 0.85.

First 10 days - 8%
Next 10 days - 6.8%
next - 5.78%
next - 4.91%
next - 4.17%

The 15% increase is conservative so it is likely even higher. Unless you start out making about 25% or more on the first week you probably never make your money back, (unless you invested USD instead of BTC) If you invested USD then the exchange rate withing 6 months will probably yeild you good results

The way you should look at these investments though is with BTC only. And you would be far better just buying BTC and holding it than mining BTC in just about every case. There is even very few investments historically that have been good for mining BTC vs. just buying the Coins and holding.

I can't think of one miner that has ever been sold that was more profitable to buy with USD than buying coins them selves at the time they went on sell. This is going all the way back to CPU's and GPU's too.

At one point when GPU mining first started you could have bought 1000 BTC or 3 5870's with the same amount of USD.

Hey guys smile.gif

I follow this topic since a moment, i've just acquired GTX 750 ti, to play some games and mine a bit. I will certainly overclock it.

I run currently on Windows XP, but as the support is ending and it's not handling directx11, i will move to either win 7 or win 8.

Which OS you would recommend to me? I seem to remember somewhere in this forum that miners got quite a few kh/s more by switching from 8 to 7, but at the same time, i would like to try the new interface and be ready in case directx12 is supported by win 8, etc.

Additional question: if i choose win 7, which version? Is there a difference of resource consuming between home premium, pro, and ultimate (not necessary processes for gaming & traditional use running in the background?).

Thanks smile.gif

win 7 x64 any versions + cudaminer 32bit + latest drivers
thats the one that gave best hasrate for me

But are we talking about a 5kh/s difference, or quite more? If it's negligible, i would go for win 8 to be more future-proof. If it's substantial, then win 7.

And do we know why it's happening? I mean, perhaps there's an upcoming update that will fix that, don't you think?

Thx for the good info.
Will not put more BTC on that. Will wait some weeks and check the results.

I say, try to trade your way out of those contracts if possible...in cex.io you could, and I managed to succesfully make some profit after mining for a week before difficulty increased and prices dropped.

@Avarclackarz I'd say win 7 64 will be more hassle-free for mining and everything.

But here for example, someone is advising me Win 8. So i need to know concretely why i should prefer one over the other. This topic is 70+pages long, i can't manage to find the difference in kh/s between win7 and win8 that some people have reported. If it's only a few kh/s more then i may choose win8, if we're talking about 30kh/s more then it's different.

A question for those more experienced:

What do you prefer to do with the coins you mine?

- Exchange it for "real currency" (USD or whatever) ASAP.
- Exchange for BTC and keep it.
- Exchange for LTC and keep it.

... or any combination of above.
... or other option I did'nt mention it.

Whats your strategy?

Depends on the coin...some I keep, some I dump.

Ultracoin - dump for slightly more than market price and wait
Yacoin - dump for slightly more than market price and wait
Microcoin - same
Vertcoin - I'd say hold
Fuguecoin - dump tongue.gif
Bitleu - waiting for an exchange (got 750 of em)
Crowncoin - Got like 5 million lol (solo mined on two cards) - waiting for an exchange...fun mining 5 mil coins in less than a day though.
Litecoin - holding some till asics hit scrypt hard
