Can my System 2.0 Rig mine or should I wait until I can buy dedicated hardware?

Can I mine with my current rig when I'm not using it? (System 2.0 below) Or should I wait until I can afford to buy some dedicated hardware?

It's a bit late to buy PC hardware (GPUs) for mining, as the difficulty of mining the various currencies has gone up. ASICs are a different story...

I'm not sure how well a 580 mines, but it should get you something.

If you mine with your current system or buy new hardware you will be making almost nothing with the current price of things. Even if you have a 1000kh/s system you will still be making under $1 a day running 24/7.

If you want to make money then you have to trade.
