The most basic configuration needed in cgminer's cgminer.conf is as follows:

The following config is for scrypt based cryptocoin mining, such as Litecoin or MinCoin:

{
"pools" : [
	{
		"url" : "stratum+tcp://usa-1.liteguardian.com:3333",
		"user" : "lurkmore.e",
		"pass" : "1"
	},
	{
		"url" : "stratum+tcp://usa-1b.liteguardian.com:3333",
		"user" : "lurkmore.e",
		"pass" : "1"
	}
],

"intensity" : "20",
"scrypt" : true,
"thread-concurrency" : "24000",
"worksize" : "256",

"kernel-path" : "/usr/local/bin"
}

Tweaking the thread-concurrency flag will help you tune the maximum hashrate. Some GPUs, such as HD 7970s, would use an intensity of 13.

For mining SHA-256d coins, such as Bitcoin, you could just remove all flags other than intensity; cgminer will usually select the best configuration.


Slightly more advanced options to add to the above config:

"api-allow" : "192.168.1.120",
"api-listen" : true,
"auto-fan" : true,
"gpu-engine" : "1000",
"gpu-memclock" : "1250",
"gpu-powertune" : "0",
"gpu-vddc" : "1.125",
"temp-target" : "70",
"queue" : "0",

Of course, all of the above settings would require modification to match your own hardware and needs.
