Here is a link to the card in question: http://imgur.com/gallery/5DikS15 I built a PC specifically for mining bitcoin with nicehash, it has an AMD phenom II processor and an ATI Radeon graphics card, but it also has an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 280, and I was wondering if the GTX 280 is supported by nicehash. If it isn't, can there be a version that can be released that supports the GPU in question? Thanks! UPDATE: I said in this post that I have an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 280. NOT an AMD video card or anything like that (that I plan on mining with). So PLEASE STOP ASKING! Also the point of this thread was to ask if it was compatible. I don't care if the card isn't profitable anymore. I just want to know if it is compatible. I did not know that there was so much unneeded controversy over a person just wanting to bitcoin mine with older hardware. Please stop commenting about it not being profitable anymore. That's all. Have a nice day.
Why Am I making less that before-Market Trends Explained!!
Hi folks recently I had been following reditt and it's pretty funny to see people jumping into crypto currency mining without understanding the basics and how markets in general work.I would like to answer some of these questions here Q1.Why is Nicehash payment soo low compaired to couple of months back.Even after bit coins has recoverd in value since A- 4 Reasons 1.Sudden Influx of new miners into nicehash and into the mining game in general due to the bull run (up market) in crypto currencies that we say in the past couple of months .On the day A Video on NH by Youtuber austin Evans was relseased we recorded a sudden increase in the global hashing power,which was never seen before .AFTER EVERY SUDDEN RISE THERE IS A SUDDEN FALL.-economics 101 2.Remeber NH doesn't mine a single coin it mines algorithim that can be shared by multiple coins and you are generally paid based on several factors like Btc/$ rates,current rates of other mined currencies like ZCASH (equihash),ETH (daggerhashimoto),etc and most importantly the SUPPLY (no.of gpus pointed at HN) Vs. DEMAND (No.Of buyers buying the hashing power coming out of the gpus).Since more people discoverying about the eazy 1 click "Sell hashing power" feature on NH and have no idea about the complicated "buying hashing power" section leads to more SUPPLY less DEMAND = LOW PAYOUTS 3.On NH You are only decrypting a gpu supported algorithm which is shared by many coins,all of these coins also known as alt coins are pegged against Bitcoins which is inturn by most people pegged against the dollar.So the change in the value of any one of these factors ie.Hashing PoweAlt coin demand and difficulty/Bitcoins value/Dollar fiat currency value can change your daily payout. 4.zcash,eth and other gpu mined coins still didnot fully recover to the value it had a couple of monts ago its recovering very slowly 4.Low Demand from buyer of hashing power due to uncertanity in the mining world due to Changes been made into the bitcoin system on August 1 August 1 Uncertanity = Scared Market = Low demand =Bear Run (down market).Read more only about that Note- Nicehash payouts has increased around 30% as bitcoin rates to dollar rate had also shown a similar up trend,since you are paid in mBtc or bitcoins in general never compare your NH Bitcoin payments with fiat currency ($€£¥,etc) because that $10 that you hold in btc now can be $30 in the future if bitcoin rates rises in the future.Happened in the past with my friends who sold a lot of mined bit coins in 2013 for mere dollars ,the value of those bit coins are now in millions.Then again if Btc crashes your held $10 in bitcoins can fall to mere 0. Since sometimes history repeats holding mined or bought btc for some time is more profitable than selling now.The price of btc will standardise one day if more and more people start adopting btc payments and there will be marginal profits to be made then by trading or mining coins (eg .modern fiat currency trading or gold trading).Again it's just a speculation based on historical analysis. Q2.When will my GPU's become FREE A1.NOW,ie.if you scored your cards before gpu prices skyrocketed if you sell them now the money you made till now by mining will be free+extra premium for the cards.Mosr cards come with 3yrs warrenty so that helps with the sale Your GPU ROI is paid the day you make 40% of what you paid for your gpu by mining ,the other 60% of the ROI can comes from selling your cards.These days even used cards are sold for 110% the price of the Box price as new cards are sold for 150-200% the original price. Price of mining/gaming grade GPU is at all time high now even though Gtx 1070/1080 and Amd RX cards are nearing the 2nd half of there life cycle .We see new faster and cheaper cards every 2 years or so.so the price of your mining cards will keep going down from now on as new surplus stock of these cards will be out in August-September and New mining cards are coming out around September aswell.Better invest in new cards to stay ahead in the mining game. Q3.They why dont You sell your cards You are Mining right? A1.Im under the assumption that Bitcoins will one day touch $5000 mark one day.so what ever I'm mining now if compared to the my investment and the current market I will be making my ROI in 1year plus or maybe never as difficulty of mining increases every now and then but I think bitcoin is a very functional form to currency it can add a lot of value to our society (FUN FACT-Do you know private bank can print free money,Google it up) bit coins patches all the problems with out current centralised money system making us slave for the govt.Bitcoins is the future of money So if i follow this single idea of bit coins getting to $5000 one day my $100 is btc today will be around $280 approx. Or could be $50 . YOU CAN NEVER ACCURATELY SPECULATE IN AN OPEN MARKET.So Stop fantasizing about getting rich quick by mining if you can do it then so the guy living next door.Have trust on crypto coins use them to buy stuff that helps making the whole currency valuable and your coins as well. Q4.Mining Via NH vs Mining Altcoin directly vs Mining bit coins vs trading coins. A1.Mining Via NH-Hassle free,Paid in btc,auto switching,optimised and stable than all.Saves a lot of time=More hashing time=more earning. You do pay a small % as frees but that's negligible compared to the time it saves. Mining Directly - Hasselous,manual setup,non noob friendly,you get to keep all the profits plus you are mining an alt coin directly so if your cards are good at one or two coins then more profit here plus you are look the market and mine anything that high today Or would increase in a couple of days and sell later for a huge profit.Smart human auto switching makes you more money than NH. It's more fun but takes more time. Mining Bitcoins-No You can't,too difficult to mine btc with gpu the Chinese got a lot of the bitcoin mining mega farms. Trading coins-Always profitable bought bit coins last month,sold yesterday making a sweet $3000 profit in 3 weeks.Buy now and sell later will always make you some profit since bit coins are finite in number like gold,you can't create new bit coins out of thin air.so if bitcoin catches and more people know about it it's value can go though the roof. Q4.Any better way to mine? ASIC vs Bitman miners vs Gpu rigs A4. Now folkes asic miners (bitman miners) eta can mine better than any gpu in the market they are specifically built for mining a certain algorithm(coin) ie.No auto switching .So if the coin falls in value you are left with the most advance and expensive door stopper in the world.No one would touch the hardware and it's value could be zero in a day.Usually these miners loose all it's value in 1 yr or 2 as difficulty increases Not so with GPUs.Say I have 2 gtx1070 and a gtx 970 bought for say $1300 (same price as a asic miner) mining 24/7 and I earn some bit coins (surely a bit less than mining on an asic) but again next year say all my cards become unprofitable by mining then I'm still the owner of with a super advance and a very expensive gaming rig on which I can do multiple display and also multiple instance of gaming. I can sell the 1070 and 970 to a gamer with 2yr warranty on those cards and I can make the reminder as gaming never falls out of favour.Remeber these cards can still decrypt other stuff like Wi-Fi passwords and physical stimulation and calculations in minutes,that's how hard mining has got and difficulty will increase overtime. Q.Any suggestions ? A.I can share my plans Gameplan 1=Buy Newer cards quick in September ,Enjoy higher mining payouts,others will follow,mining hardware increases in price,then market crashes for sometime,you made your money,sell your cards for 100-150% the original value.Live happy every and after Gameplan2-Buy bit coins today,wait till the prices reaches another all time high ,happens every year,Sell and don't forget to live happy every and after, A happy man is some one with no money to worry about. -My Father said to me the day I started mining.
You saw the title! HD6950 - $50 + shipping. Tested, works! Only personally used once in the last two weeks. This card was purchased by a friend of mine during the bitcoin mining craze, but he only used it for a short period of time due to cost issues. It sat in his office until two weeks ago when I bought it. R7 260X - $20 + shipping. Tested & NOT working. Not sure what's wrong with it, but I get no video signal at startup. Was purchased new in October of 2015 and only used until February. I would have RMA'd it but it's XFX and they wanted me to pay ~$60 in shipping to RMA. This could be an interesting project for someone with a soldering kit. GT 545 - $35 + shipping. Came from an Alienware Aurora R2 (I believe) It's kinda dirty, but it works fine. Could maybe use some love and new thermal paste. Your call. Prices are negotiable, especially if I can find a cheaper shipping service. Also willing to consider trades for each or all of the listed cards. I'm specifically looking for a new GPU. I'd be willing to trade all three cards for something along the lines of a R9 280, R9 380, GTX 680, 770, or 960. I'm also considering other trades. Just hit me up and we'll go from there. Timestamps For those who are curious, the 6950 and 260X perform similarly to a 750 ti. The GT 545 is in the same performance bracket as a GT 650 or R7 250. Source E: Sold.
