So, for my big upcoming birthday (granted, not for several more months… but, this is it for this year I went ahead and started trying to bid on parts for a rig. I won a couple of things, or found what I hope are good deals. Waiting for everything to come in, but here’s what I got:
Used ASUS B250 MINING EXPERT + 4 GB Ram + 6 Risers + celeron g3930 (2.9 duo core) w/fan - $98.24 from Ebay
Used EVGA SuperNova 1000 Ps 80+ Platinum, with cables - $120.15 from OfferUp
Used 4X RX 470 8GB DVI card - $333.72 from Ebay
New 6 GPU Aluminum frame w/ power switch - $30.30
New USB Wirless Adapter - $29.22
New WD 250 GB SSD - $54.11
It should make about $68 a month, before paying electric (based off NiceHash estimate, unless that crashes at some point). My electric rate isn’t too bad, so probably looking at about $44 a month after electric, probably closer to $40 after transaction fees So, my hopeful ROI is 17 months.
Might pick up one more card, if I can get a good deal, as I think that might actually drop my time Hopefully I’m not forgetting any important parts and hopefully everything works! I’ll post a picture once I get everything in and up and running.
