Amperage isn't an issue, my server room has 2 dedicated panels in it, I will just run a drop from one of the other outlets, I will have to be 2x PSU's to run that rig anyhow. So, 3x 290x on one breaker, then 3x 290x + base system on another breaker. There are some perks to having our business in an old dialup ISP building. They ran enough power to supply dialup on super old inefficient machines for about 200k users and had some old AT&T fiber to copper conversion systems installed.

You say you don't pay for electricity now but what happenes when your usage suddenly jumps up 1500kw / month?

I think he means his fuses wont go popcorn on him if he plugs in 2600w of psus in an outlet. Not that hes not paying for wattage smile.gif.

I mean our electricity is build into a lease agreement and there is no specification on power draw. We have consolidated from 25 servers down to 5 through virtualization and are using a fraction of what we were before, I'm just bringing us back up to old usage standards if you want to look at it from that perspective thumb.gif

OK that makes sense. I've just heard stories of people who thought they had free electricity only to find out once they started to use a lot of it, it was no longer free...lol.

How do I know what coin to mine? Just look on coinwarz and select the highest? I was gonna start mining dogecoin but it's gone from 18 days for 1 btc to 35 days for 1 btc. Is anyone mining feather coin?

Hey Fellas, I need some input from the veteran miners we have here. I have been mining for a few months on a pair of 7970s and a 6950 that I had in the house. I have already made ROI on those and am now looking at making a pretty hefty investment (in my world of finance anyhow) into building a 6 card setup. I don't pay for electricity and am looking at going full in on some 290x's, before you blast me for it not being hash/$ logical...hear me out.

I'm looking at roughly 5k in out of pocket cost to put the machine together and get it up and running (I have a lead on a handful of them at $599 still). If everything stays healthy and mines at 900+ per card like it should, I'm looking at 80-85 day ROI. If everything crashes the next day, I can still get money out of the 290x cards due to other people still being interested in that particular line for other than mining, whereas if I were to go with say a 270 and build multiple stacks of them, I would end up stuck with 18 of those suckers to sell off and probably take a bigger loss trying to get rid of a mid-line at best card.

The other concern is cubic footage...I'm trying to keep the footprint relatively small since this is running in my existing server room and I don't want to tie up a whole section just on bringing in mining machines...I have a business to run afterall smile.gif.

Input and suggestions are encouraged - let me know if I am way off base or if it makes sense to stay with the upper-tier cards here.

I would say the best cards to use are upper end, 280x and higher. Your idea makes sense, to keep a smaller footprint, and the resale-ability of those cards will stick. As long as your power situation is solid, then all you have to worry about is cooling. Go for it. thumb.gif
