Questions on: hardware

Now that I think of it, since Quarkcoin applies several different hash functions in series, and one of them is precisely good-old SHA-256, you could theoretically use that box to speed-up quarkcoin mining by changing the miner software to take advant
Technocat on Bitcoin Mining: Hardware Requirements - CPU & GPU and Mining Pools. See for more info. Part 1: Hardware Requirements Mining rigs come in all shapes and sizes
If I am using MSMQ over the web, what happens if the network connection is lost between client and server? So can you still add messages to the Queue, and if so where are they stored? In the client app, or in the clients OS etc? For instance if I hav
Ram can important when mining Litecoin/Scrypt based coins. If you don't at least match the total ram to the total memory the gpu's offer, you may run into a bottleneck trying to get the most out of your cards. (doesn't happen often but with certain c
You can use any computer that fulfils the minimal requirements: Most important is sufficient storage for the blockchain (currently ~9. 5GB), you probably want a multiple of that for some peace of mind. The computing power necessary to just run a (non
The best Bitcoin mining hardware has evolved dramatically since 2009 At first, miners used their central processing unit (CPU) to mine, but soon this wasn't fast enough and it bogged down the system resources of the host computer. Miners quickly move
