Major pump and dumps today for TRC and NMC. I figure it's due to the market being relatively boring the last two days.

Just back it up, in case the site goes down or whatever. You can always restore the backup yourself using the bitcoin client

How important is RAM and CPU compared to a GPU for litecoin mining operations?

I'm able to pick up an old computer with a Q6600 but only 2GB of RAM for dirt cheap (100 AUD). If I pick up say a 6950 and stick it in would that be good enough or would it have serious bottlenecking issues?

LTC mining is heavily RAM dependent, but if you are mining with a GPU, it's the GPU RAM that matters.

I have seen people write otherwise, but I don't think it is true. I have never seen the client use much system ram at all, and I have 32GB in my system.

I made moved my 7870 to a Sempron 3000+ with 4GB RAM, and I achieve the same numbers compared to being installed with an i5 2500k with 8GB RAM.

just saw this on Reddit:

Remember guys - ANY currency can be volatile, especially with cryptocurrencies that don't really "come" from anywhere. Play it safe and don't dump everything into it!

Starting with almost nothing, I made almost $500,000 gambling with Bitcoin. I then lost it all in about 60 seconds. I am now $50k in debt and will most likely lose my job, my visa status, my fiancee. AMA. : IAmA

I was going to say exactly what the top post said - this is an AMA about gambling addiction, not bitcoin.

But yes, putting money into bitcoin or any investment is like gambling. So don't gamble more than you can afford to lose. Don't try to use it to get out of debt, for instance.

nvidia cards are bad at mining i hear. Wait for your 7970?

But if you should be getting higher, I usually just restart my video card and that fixes most problems

alright so I'll be picking up at XFX 7950 tomorrow for $200, along with an old PC with a 700w PSU and some ram for $150.
(keep in mind that I don't need to worry about power consumption since... I get it for free haha)

can i expect this setup to maybe pump up 500 or so khash?
is that number realistic? if it is how many coins can I expect to pump out a week?
(Computer has 2GB DDR2, Athlon X2 CPU of sorts, and currently running a 8600GT)
