I'm completely new to Bitcoin but finding it all very interesting so far! My Bitcoin-qt wallet has been synchronising for literally days now (2 days actually) but it is getting closer, on 91% now. My question is, if I was to buy a Bitcoin from MtGox or somewhere, would I have to wait for the synchronisation to complete before I could see my coins? My transfer would have to be confirmed on the block chain through mining and would be the latest on the chain meaning I'd have to wait until it came through right? Would you wait it out?
