This started out as a "Right Now" project. Meaning, no ebay, no newegg... Sorry for the cheesy music. It was either that or silence... lol
So this meant getting up and going to local store. Which happened to be Frys & Microcenter. If you do not have one near you, maybe look for a CompUSA? BestBuy? It didn't come out as cheap as I would like it to, but it does second as a good computer for gaming, I guess. lol

Installed Newest Drivers From: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
Installed GUIminer from: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=150331.0
System is currently running 370khash/sec on GUI miner with the settings in the video.
I just selected my card from the drop down GPU Defaults...
If I use the 7850 (High Usage) setting:
PC is not really useable, pretty slow, plus loading things may crash the card, stopping mining. But no biggie, it recovers instantly, you just have to stop then start miner again. The good part is it will max at 370 and stay there constant.
So at Hashrate: 370.659 KH/s It Estimates: 0.766 LTC /day
Currently LTC is $4.09 so it makes about $3.13 a day...
If I use the 7850 (Low Usage) settings:
PC is still usable, probably not for hd videos or games, but web and most programs work, slower but still useable. Haven't crashed it yet, so thats good. Except in this setting it mines at about 221.095 KH/s which Estimates: 0.461 LTC /day making $1.89 a day...
Umm... Thats it... Ill keep mine running at high usage and see what I get. Hope LTC price goes up, making this worth it more. lol
Thanks for watching.
Donate LTC If I Helped! lol
