    I'd suggest that you mine something which is actually profitable.

    Sadly, I've no clue on the CUDA side of things.

    What error messages do you get? It may be something simple to solve.

      sorry for the late reply...
      after a lot of playing about to get it going, everything looks fine other than the Booooooos,
      have seen a step by step guide on setting up Ether...... (whatever its called) although it looks complicated im gonna try setting it up.

      what coins are worth mining?

        Ether is currently in a very unstable state due to the hack (Google search Ethereum and you'll soon see!) that took place.

        I'm currently not mining anything due to the cost fluctuating too much and the proposed fix coming soon. I've actually had my rigs running in idle for as much as 15 hours a day due to the pool going offline, presumably whilst they try to update it.

        For now, the rigs are staying off.

            I was using weipool.org, but I think they're in the middle of getting ready for the hardfork which is meant to be on Monday if I remember rightly. We shall see what happens to the coin when they put the plan into action. It may die completely, or it may revive.
