What's the current $/Mhash - Bitcoin Stack Exchange

To the moon! Dogemining with BFGMiner, Debian, and ATI.

Visitor from the future! Hello. I'm a newbie digger and recently setup my first dedicated mining box in Debian. I'm not the most experienced Linux user, but the machine had started with Debian Squeeze and I couldn't find its old Windows key. (Also please forgive formatting errors, I'm new to this whole "Reddit" thing as well.)
I found a number of guides to misdirect me on my way, so I decided to write up a sort-of (or at least hopefully up-to-date) guide to create a Dogecoin miner on Debian with AMD cards, using BFGMiner to mine coins.
Expert digging shibes: I would certainly appreciate feedback to improve this guide.
This is not a headless mining guide. I have not reached that level of mastery yet, though I believe it is well within reach.
HOWTO
You can refer to this wiki source to understand the output from BFGMiner 3.10.0. The one gotcha I've observed is that BFGMiner will happily start off showing hash rates in KHash/sec, and after the first accepted block it will jump to MHashes/sec. When I first saw my hash speed appear to drop from "250" to "0.2", I panicked a little before seeing it had changed its orders of magnitude.
If you think you're still mining slowly, you might need to bump up the intensity for BFGMiner. Higher intensity means more work, and it's possible to create hardware failures if you set it too high. For my HD 5870s, I use an intensity of 12. You can either set the intensity by adding "-I 12" to the ./bfgminer line of doge_dig.sh, or you can adjust the value by pressing M in BFGMiner and working through the menu system from there.
Bonus: Multiple cards
What happens if I have multiple ATI cards on one rig, you ask? I had the same problem, and OpenCL would only recognize one of them! It turns out that there's an easy solution, but it costs $1.25 in resistors from your local radio shack: http://www.overclock.net/t/384733/the-30-second-dummy-plug
Plug the finished product from there into your second card. If you have more than two cards, you'll need to make one for every card you want to recognize without a monitor attached to it. Reboot and restart your mining, BFGMiner should recognize all of your cards now.
In theory, the above technique should allow you to run completely headless, as long as you also install SSH and be sure to have your script export DISPLAY=:0 before running BFGMiner. I haven't tried this, though.
Happy mining and welcome to the Moon! I hope this is helpful to someone.

Questions about mining

Hello everyone. I have been doing a bit of research on hardware that does well with this type of thing and I came across this site when reading through forums on configs and hardware setups: https://products.butterflylabs.com/
To my understanding most of the GPU setups are in kHash which is (1 mHash / .1 gHash). Am I correct on this or off on my reading? Also, are those ASIC's set up specifically for Bitcoin mining ONLY and not Litecoin mining (as of right now)? Just seems like those will make any GPU setup completely obsolete. I was looking at some hardware setups to build some towers that would get about 500 kHash a piece (assuming I set them up right) according to this site: https://github.com/litecoin-project/litecoin/wiki/Mining-hardware-comparison#wiki-Nvidia_GPUs
So first off I will be testing this out with my normal PC to see if I can get it working and then if it goes smoothly look into getting some dedicated rigs. So my question is, where should I put my money in terms of hardware? Will GPU mining be the most efficient for the time being with Litecoin mining or will holding out to get one of the ASIC setups?
Sorry if I have a lot of noobie questions, just trying to make sure I understand this correctly before making any decisions.
Thanks!
