Mining profitability is largely dependent on the electricity cost. It is not a get rich quick deal ( unless the coins that you are mining moon in the next few months ). If you are methodical about what you are doing, patient and in for the long term. it will eventually be profitable ( might take months or years depending on the market and your set-up ). Yes I do agree that mining smaller altcoins is a better strategy if you are trying to venture into mining at this point.
