I’m not sure of the exact number but I know it’ll be so many and use so much electricity as to be totally uneconomical. I’d estimate 20,000 minimum but probably more. Of course, running so many machines would cost you more electricity than you’d earn from the bitcoins.
If you want to mine Bitcoin, the only viable route nowadays is via ASIC miners. ASIC miners mine about 1 million times faster than a CPU. From our tab menu up top, check out the Mining Guides > Bitcoin Mining > Is Bitcoin Mining Worth It? article for more detail.
