I'm new to the topic of crypto-currencies and I've been reading quite a bit over the last few days and several questions came up of which the most important is the aforementioned one: What is possible with an Asrock G31m-gs, a Intel E5200 Dual Core, running at 2.3 Ghz, and a Geforce 9400gt.
- Is the geforce 9400gt capable of mining (ANYTHING)?
- --> mainly for learning, I'm planning to update after Christmas( I thought one or two geforce 750ti would be a good idea) (they cost ~130€ in germany)
- As The MoBo does not do any work, I'd first upgrade the Graphics Card (and add another one) and change the MoBo later on, correct?
- I won't have to pay for Electricity
I'm a student and not one of those whose parents are super rich, so I'm on a budget.
I'm not hoping to become rich via mining (why would I be so naive?), certainly not, with what is affordable for me, but I like the conept of decentralization and anonymity. (banks are not generally bad, but I've learned that people who want my money are not of the good kind! :-D)
My Machine is:
Linux Mageia 5 (should be nearly up-to-date, haven't worked on it for a few days ...)
--> I'm open for alternatives, as long as it's not Windows --> sadly enoguh, I have Windows on my Laptop for games etc.
Thanks in Advance,
I hope these questions are not too naive/dumb and I'll receive answers :-D
