I dunno lol. Oil is cheap there dude, so maybe oil-driven electricity is as well.

EDIT: This page suggests the opposite, though:
http://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/country_result.jsp?country=Saudi+Arabia
250 SAR/mo daw for an 85sqm apartment, so it might not be as cheap as your source suggests.

You probably know better lol.

yup, majority oil driven mga power plants dito.

sa flat namin, our bill last month was 80sr, 4 rooms, isang kusina, 2 CR. pero tag lamig pa last month, sa summer(june-sept) full blast na ang aircon.

if tama ang values... i can get $500 worth of bitcoin every 3 months?  >:D

which is better, bitcoin or litecoin? Parang similar sa Folding @ Home, yun nga lang may payout. Sounds good.

Bitcoin is money. You can trade bitcoins for $ using bitcoin exchanges, or you can spend bitcoins directly for stuff (pretty rare to find anyone accepting direct bitcoin though).

The trade-off, of course is that it costs your electricity money to mine bitcoins, and if you live in a place where electricity is expensive you might end up spending more on your bills than you get in bitcoins (hence the profitability calculator above).

Popular in the states because of cheap rate electricity and sticking it to the man.

But that's just a rebound, and it didnt even climb to its previous high value before the crash. Prior to that, bitcoins crashed so hard so if you had 20 million or so when bitcoins started, you would have had less than 1 million during 2011. Fact is bitcoin is a new and unstable currency where you can gain big, or lose big.

That's the point behind these feasibility calculators, dude! Bitcoins cost electricity to mine, and if your electricity cost is high enough, there's a chance you might end up losing money no matter what. My calculation for philippines is that you'll lose money if you mine with anything less than a 7970, and even with a 7970 you'll just be slightly above break even.



GPU-Z can log activity on your GPU.
I think the CPU temp monitoring apps like Coretemp and Realtemp can log for your CPU.
Everest can log for both.
