Should I drop $5k on a GPU mining rig right now? How long should it take to pay for itself? Is it even worth it? At $0.10/kWh

nigger it's not rocket science, whattomine.com

Is that Hackerman's battle-station?

>> No.2466169

If you do don't buy RX 4xxs or 5xxs they are overpriced rn most components are cause everyone is trying to build a rig

How loud are GPU mining rigs? It's hard to tell from videos

If you live in a studio apartment is it impractical to have a 6x GPU rig? Would 1 or 2 be okay?

>> No.2466756

Loud. Some people even use box fans.

Enjoy your house fire.

Good luck finding GPU's that get a decent hash rate for a decent price. Everyone already beat you to this punch and everything under the sun is sold out or marked up 2-3x msrp.

They're like $415 on newegg and Amazon for gtx 1070...?

27Mh/s for $415
rx 470 is 22Mh/s msrp $180

rx 460 with bios to unlock dormant cores is 13Mh/s (11Mh/s stock) @ msrp $100

The dollars per Mh suck with the green team, even counting the insane markup on some of this shit.

And that's not even counting the watt per Mh, where green sucks even more.

>> No.2467435

There's so much BS on the internet I don't know what to do

Some people are saying they're getting $100-$180/month with a GTX 1070. Some people say it's literally impossible to profit once you take into account electricity.

WHICH IS IT? I don't want to buy it unless it will pay for itself in 3-4 months

There's calculators for this shit, google it. If you already have a quarter decent card made in the past couple years at current ETH rates you'd need like $0.90/kwh to not be profitable on a gpu, (cpu on the other hand is always shit). Now if you have to go and buy cards things get a lot more risky.

>> No.2467483

I would have to buy GTX 1070's for like $500 each with tax and shipping. I have a long investment horizon. I'm asking for verification of these calculations, for instance is this site reliable?


It says a GTX 1070 makes $135/month in the past month

Is this legit or are there other factors?

It's assuming $0.10/kwh, and is not counting increases in things like air conditioning, faulty cards buying the rest of your computer, internet bills, that time you trip and dump a pint of diet coke on your rig ect. Knowing all that yes it's relitivly accurate.

>> No.2467563

Thanks my fellow anon, I don't drink coke so no risk

Going to buy TY

How much internet does mining use? I've seen lots of info about rigs etc but what kind of upload/download speeds do I need to do this?

>> No.2467603

Depends on the coin, many are almost none, others like sai can eat up 10 gigabit and still be thirsty.
