So, I’m going to start by saying PLEASE HELP! Haha!
I recently came into a small fortune and I would very much like to use it to create a passive income. With the stock market being an inevitable shitshow right now, I wanted to get into something that I could exert at least a modicum of control over (ie what to farm and when to do it). As with all things however, I have to get everything approved by my significant other.
Over the last week I have been watching every video and reading as much as I can about mining currency. I’m pretty confident I’m ready to make the plunge and I have approval from the aforementioned significant other to spend roughly 2500 as a proof of concept to show her we can make money doing this.
Can anyone give me some idea of what hardware a newbie like me should acquire to make a good impression so I get approval for roughly another 20k (max allocated for this idea If it works). I believe a a 250k mobo with a celeron processor is the most cost effective? Also, rx580 vs 1660 super? Right now there’s a 80$ difference in cost per card. Not sure which to pull the trigger on. As for Risers, anybody have a preferred brand so I can at least try to limit how many defective ones I receive. And the power supply? I’ve heard a lot about gold rated ones. Are they a good investment?
To start I believe I’ll be using nicehash since I have to be able to show my wife the profits in a way she understands. However, I’m open to any other program that has a understandable interface. Thanks in advance for any help you all can provide.
