Just remember that while you are heating your home, you might as well do it with a mining rig than an electric heater....one watt in is one watt out, but those heaters don't pay you back in LTC tongue.gif

Therefore, you can consider your electricity "free", because you'd be using it to heat anyway.

They are 7870s right? How much can you get them for? Personally I would go for the 7850s, since they are almost as good as 270x and 7870, and only require 1 6 pin connector.

The 270 should be same as a 7850, how much can you get those for?

the 270 and 270x are basically the same price on newegg. i have a psu that is powerful enough to run 3 270x, would it be worth it to buy them though? at this point how many litecoins would i earn a month?

Not worth it, imho...I'd do 5830/5850/5870/6950 unlocked/6970/7950/280X/290. Those are the best bang/buck cards for mining atm.

My 270x gets at max 417kh/s.  I will be buying a 280X soon, while also sending my 270X back for a refund. So no, three 270X's will not be a good investment.

As long as no one here needs to cash out their coins in the next few months... I'm rooting for BTC to fall all the way back down to $150 personally... actually, I hope it stays down there too... for at least a few more months. This is quite possibly the last huge buying opportunity. If BTC falls below $200-300 expect to also be able to pick up some cheap miners on ebay... since there are a ton of people that are simply jumping on in search of quick money! Once those opportunities are seen as 'lost' - they'll sell in fear of a total crash (like back to $7 or something like that).

Same thing happened back when it hit $250 and immediately crashed back to $80... and look what happened a couple months later. biggrin.gif

And if you do need to cash out now for some reason - sorry... but I'm still rooting for a major correction. redface.gif

with current prices and mining rates, 6950 get about 400kH/s as well and go for well over 200, while a 270x gets about 400kH/s and is right at 200, is there something i'm missing? it seems to me that they are the same/ slightly in the 270x favor just because the prices are so high for those "best bang for the buck" cards with all these recent price spikes.

If they are asking $200+ for a 6950 then you are looking at the wrong place.

I have 6970s for $175 each wink.gif
