This question already has an answer here:

I have a computer with a Phenom II X6 1090T 3.2 GHz, and a GT430 gfx card. Obviously I know I won't be able to mine lots of bitcoins, but I want to start getting some money for a car and such. Is the only solution to mining by getting a ASIC Machine, or people on other forums run a pool using a huge botnet.

If you guys can give me any tips to start, it would be appreciated.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


So according to this wiki[1] your GT430 can run at 20 MHash/s. And if you plug 20 MHash/s into the mining calculator[2] you're looking at around $0.08 a day in revenue. Your daily power consumption will be larger than that.

Or to think of that another way, the current rates mean $0.41 USD/24h@100MHash/s, and you're one-fifth of that.

8 cents per day. That's a long way to save for a car.
