Even with free electricity if you mine with only one GPU on a pool, it will take time before you earn some good profit.

In my opinion, I suggest you GAWminers, they have hashlets, better than any actual cloud mining system here and about the same as LTCgear. Click the link on my signature and make a little tour on the website, youll see its easy to understand and fun to with gawminers.

If you are into gawminers, I suggest to subscribe on hashtalk.org since its the official gawminers forum and you can talk to the founders too.

If you want to mine Bitcoin, you want to buy ASIC hardware.  Don't waste your time thinking about putting together a rig with multiple graphics cards - that ship sailed over a year ago.

Jonny's Pool - Mine with us and help us grow!  Support a pool that supports Bitcoin, not a hardware manufacturer's pockets!  No SPV cheats.  No empty blocks.

okay if you live in a cold place miners run hot.  If you have free power and your place is cold you will get some heat.

So first question is where do you live?

Lets say it is a place that is cold Canada or Michigan, USA  Or Maine, USA

Lets say you want the free heat.  buy some antminer s-1's, one to start they can be found for under 100 usd on ebay

http://www.ebay.com/itm/antminer-s1-/191331866843?pt=US_Virtual_Currency&hash=item2c8c4498db

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bitmain-Antminer-S1-Ships-Smart-Shipping-180-to-200-GHS-Bitcoin-excellent-deal-/261594109045?pt=US_Virtual_Currency&hash=item3ce8395475

I do not know the sellers but the prices are decent if your power is free and you need some heat, buy just 1 to start.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

My country is cold, for sure
i have 6x52" fan with good power that i could use for if its get to hot
my concern is that like some said using or buying alot of graphic cards is quite last years
i have storage rackets that i can build from, alot of DDR chips / could need more powersupplies but thats no problem, if someone is interested to be a part of this he can contact me in message box, could have skype call about it, i think its great oppurtinity as i´m getting free electricty why not mine cryptocurrency

What good are "DDR chips" for mining BTC? You can't build a bitcoin miner from scratch, lol. Well you theoretically can if you have several million dollars to spend.

Just saying what i have for it! Smiley but i guess they are better use to scrap the gold from it?

That's correct bro, scrap it... Gold will be worth more than BTC for a long time to come!
