I highly recommend you don't use your CPU. With New Zealand expensive electricity bill you won't make a return, but just loses. (Unless you're getting free electricity it's a win)
My GPUs do 1.5 Ghash/s. Today's difficulty and exchange rate its make around NZD$60-64 per day, minus $3.45 for electricity.

Nobz, do you mine solo, or do you belong to a pool?
gjm: my old pc is currently doing 344khash... maybe I should just give up. I have no bitcoins :-(
. If people are making 60 - 70 bucks a day thats about 25k a year...is that right? Are some people really making that?
Yeah it's true that people are making that sorta money. But they spent like 3K on hardware, that gets paid back in the space of a month, and anything else is profit.
As with anything like this, there's always that risk, always people with better hardware, willing to take more risks.
As I look at it, if I get another 2 or 3 HD5850's, if I make the money back, sweet, if I don't, I've got one hell of a gaming computer :P
