Whats better for bitcoin mining?

Hi guys I'm new to SCRYPT mining, and I was wondering out of these 3 miners what to use on a daily basis for some kind of net profit (more on a month to month). I don't plan on making big money, but just something here and there to get me into cryptcurrency.. again! I also found cloud mining or "multi-coin" pools, I couldnt find much information about them.

This is the software im talking about, ive used all three below. Ive realized that the bfg and cg miners work well, but a lot of power is needed. the CPU miner works well too... but you would need a farm of 10,000 computers to make money lol..

1) CG-miner v4.9 (win32)
2) BFGminer
3) Pooler's CPU-miner v2.4.1 (mirror)

Thank you in advance for all your help!

Don't you want to use a GPU-based miner?

Bitcoin mining isn't profitable (so the answer is none), and if you are asking this on a trading forum, the obvious answer is, you should trade it, not mine it.
