    have 3 6970's comming in this week so that will boost up my hasrate nicely...
    its a nice -16 deg C outside... and i still havn't turned on the furnace this year
    I plan to mine all winter then see where bitcoins are doing come spring.

    [edit]
    i use OZCoin for a backup pool.

    im mining at arsbitcoin for now. I love the SMPPS method and the ability to take a manual payout!

    need to wait and see what happens there as the pool may be going away soon.
    Try my multi-threaded prime benchmark!

    BTCGuild has manual payout as well as automatic payouts
    i usualy do manual payout every monday morning.

    OZCoin has both but manual payout has 2% transaction fee
    i never use it... i get a bitcoin from them every week or so...

    Your power bills must be insane Downside of not paying for my power bill is that I've capped myself at 2 kW for fear of pulling too much power. Would love to pick up some of these relatively cheap 5970s. Hope the HD 7K series is more energy efficient.

    well i heard rumor... as rumors are aleays created.
    that ATI will be going more towards implmentation simular like Nividia, so u will get has hash speeds simular to their cards.
    i'm not going to pretend i understand all of how it works...
    it was just something i read... take it with a grain of salt... or rock salt...

    Ya power bills are best not spoken of Though we have a crummy heat pump so mining will curb it's usage.
    Holding off on more cards until 7 series and as Mad said the new high end cards are expected to be more like Nvidia's arch.
    Though it's rumored the 6970/50 will get a shrink and be using ~100 watts for the mid range 7 series. Those are what I'm holding out for.

    Super jealous. Gave up searching for workshops to run my growing farm out of. Just too expensive to rent a place for power. I think with maybe 15 GH/s I could pay for rent/power and cut a small profit but I just don't want to buy that many 5970s So I'm stuck at ~4.5 GH/s until I move to another apartment.

    wow, that is a lot of power.

    i am maxed out at my apartment with 1.8GH/s.

    That still makes me enough to pay the entire electricity bill with each month.

    Found a guy willing to rent out his barn to me. 70 amps of 240v and a massive barn with windows waiting for exhaust fans Bought up a bunch of GPUs and looking at installing around 11 GH/s in a week or so. Going to expand out to around 18-20 GH/s before transitioning to FPGAs

    So why are you guys still mining again?
    I can barely mine worth the cost of electricity, so I quit a long time ago. I cashed out when the market was still around $18/bitcoin and I was happy with my $100 profit.

    I pay $0.11/kWh and achieve around 2.4 MH/W averaged across my farm. It is profitable for me to mine down to around $3 after which the profits would be so low I'd consider selling everything off. The goal is to transition to FPGAs that, once paid off, would let me mine down to fractions of a dollar and cut a profit.

    It is very important with GPUs to NOT air condition them. Paying to cool them ruins your MH/W ratios and destroys your chances at profits.

    Anybody on here heard of P2pool? It's the pool I mine my 1.3ghash with. The variance is a bit of a pain since the pool is ~ 350ghash, and the payout method is PPLNS, but when the going is good, I make 200%+ of what my actual mhash would achieve on any other payout method pool.

    Yup, distributed pooling software. Pretty slick and in line with the concept of bitcoin. I myself am still on btcguild, patiently waiting to get in to GPUMAX for my primary pool.
