That seems really great, but then I started looking at costs:2 780 ti Asus Dcuii , Win 7 64 Ultimate
1100 clock, stock mem
Speed ranges between 9,886khs and 12,200khs
55c on card 1
59/61c on card 2
Software = ccminer beta 1.0 x86 ccminer35.exe using stock settings
This is my workstation and its still very usable for daily surfing and video streaming while the miner is active.
Short answer, buy yourself a masternode's worth of darkcoin and the electricity is negligible and you're ASIC/GPU upgrade proof to bootThat seems really great, but then I started looking at costs:
Hash Rate (KH/s): ~avg 10,000
Power(Watts Rec for 780 ti 250Wat per card): ~600 Watt PSU
Power Cost ($/kWh): 0.15
Current Difficulty: 2765.38251685
Block Reward: 5.57
Pool Fees %: Lets say 2% or .02
DRK to BTC Conversion rate: 0.00960020
BTC to USD Conversion rate: $221.43
Annually @ 24/7
Power Cost: $788.40
So you pay ~$475 a year to mine? It's much worse for us casuals too. I'm curious as to what would be needed in order to reduce power per kilowatt hour and increase KH/s to the point where it could possibly be profitable.
try sgminer 4.2 with wolf0's bin files renamed to bin files created by sgminer, you should be hitting over 7 meg I would think. Use xintensity to the maximum its quicker,powertune=20 and overclock a little with GPU memory speed using afterburner.GPU R9 280x
Sphminer @ 6.3 Mhs with intensity 18
Use Cgwatcher by Justine Milone, set it to reset on dead/low hashing and possibly every 4-24 hrs for good measure whatever.GeForce GTX 750 1GB, ~2660 kH/s
GPU: 1396 Memory: 2504
ccMiner release 1.5.3-tpruvot on Arch Linux x86_64
I'm new to this. The video card seems stable but yet something usually flakes out while I'm asleep,
That looks really nice, but I'm using linux. I figured, ccminer should be able to run as a daemon, right?

Get me a 6950; I'll get it over 2MH/sSome upto date hashing speeds,
R9 290 tri X OC = 7.45 megahash (with Wolf0's bins and sgminer 5.0)
Amd 6950 = 1.9 megahash (pre-release version sgminer 5.0 and x11mod kernel for added stability)
Amd 5850 = 1.45 megahash (pre-release version sgminer 5.0 and x11mod kernel for added stability)
Remember that Wolf0's .bin optimizations do NOT work on earlier chipsets than the HD 7000 series such as the 6950, btw I have managed to get a 6950 over 2 meg but they were usually unstable, I challange anyone to do it and not get a blue screen of death ?!
Tip : if you getting repeated crashing of old GPU's, try underclocking the core clock but keeping the memory clock same or over.
There's also a Fury, which is to a Fury X as a 290 is to a 290X.Has anyone been able to mine with the new R9 390's or Fury X yet? Curious about hash speeds on these new cards.
Wolf0 is moving to Thailand.. I'm wondering what's the power cost there, do you know?Only half joking, I would send it if you wanted, think of all them 6950's you could save from landfills!
Good luck with your moving, try to make sure you move into a strong internet connection area
