What do you guys think:


With that single core processor, you're gonna hate how long it takes to setup Windows and all it's updates. I just did it with an Intel Core 2 duo and compared to my two AMD rigs, one with a Phenom II x 4 965 or this FX-8350, it was sooo slow, I thought it would never finish downloading updates for Win. 7, but you'll get there, just plan on pitching a tent and lighting the bonfire. lol Congrats, I hope it serves you well.thumb.gif

This is nuts. I sold 2 million nuts for about 4 LTC this morning. I set up a 2.3LTC buy order of 2.3 million nuts, and half of it is filled.

Well, more nuts for me.

Got the mouse, ram, hdd, cooling, keyboard and the wifi adaptor. Is it sensible to get a SSD while buying the others or just use the HDD for a while and then buy ssd with profits? like, would the speed of a ssd change anything but boot speed?

It will save you a minimal amount on the electric and if you keep your wallets on your rig, I would much more trust them on an SSD than a HDD. The speed of the SSD won't help a thing... except the boot and if you're building a dedicated mining rig, you don't want to be doing a lot of booting, that means you're not mining.

^^ What he said. Sure, amd GPU are what you want for mining, but processing power still stays with Intel. A G3220 would be a better move, in my opinion.

I was planning just to have the minimal stuff on the miners, like OS, temperature stuff and drivers and thats it. Wallets i was thinking would be on my main computer.
So then SSD on the first round is not required but i should get it asap?

Couple of questions:

1. Looking to pick up a couple of 280x, what model should i go for , Sapphire Dual X OC or Gigabyte Windforce 3X (the Gigabyte has 3 Years warrany vs 2 Years on the Sapphire, Price is the same.

I'm setting up 2 rigs will the following PSU's be enough?

Rig 1: XFX Pro Series 850w Black edition
- AMD Sempron 145
- 2x XFX 7970 (Voltage locked @ 1.17v)
- 1x Gigabyte 7950 @ 1.09v
- 20w of 120mm fans / HDD

Rig 2: Corsair AX860i
- Lowpowered Cpu (Celeron / Sempron)
- 2x 280x (Gigabyte or Sapphire)
-1x Sapphire 7970 @ 1.03v
- 20W of 120mm fans / HDD

Psu's can be swapped around depending on the power draw.

I would, but if it's a dedicated mining rig and only having the very basic stuff on there, no need for more than 64-128GB. more will just be a waste of money.

You could easily use a 750W with running the 280's and probably 1000W for the three gpus, if you're gonna OC them a lot, but at stock, a 850W should be enough.

Keep editing this post. Gigabyte should be your obvious choice. Sapphire is good, but Giga is better, apart from the 1 year extra warranty thing.

My bad, but I'll probably stick to what I said before. 850W is good, but not for if you're gonna OC those GPUs. I'd be safe and get a 1000W.
