Bitcoin mining - you doing it?

Recommended Posts

So I did some mining back in 2010 and earned about 5 bitcoin and then got bored and that machine got formatted and disposed of.  My kids came home from college and told me they are no longer playing games and using their gaming rigs to mine bitcoin because the power is free at school...  Gezzz....  I told them I had 5 bitcoin back then and they told me it was worth millions....  Who's the bigger fool now....  Maybe they will be able to pay for school....

Anyway, I've got a spare gaming desktop and I thought I would play with the software.    Are you doing it?  Share your setup and results

  • Alienware 51, the machine is like 5 years old
  • NVIDIA GTX 660, gpu to old to be useful
  • CPU:   i7-3770 @ 3.40GHz
  • Software:  nicehash.com.   Estimate is about $0.37 a day.
  • Power:  my power costs me $0.11kw, at the moment I have no way to estimate the cost of a bitcoin in power.  Anyone?
