I was in the same boat as you, but decided to get R9 290s instead.

While the HD7950/HD7970/R9 280X will get you a bit more price to performance and performance per watt, you'll lose more on them when you sell.

An HD7970/R9 280X will be sold at ~$200 if the rumors are true about ASIC coming out April, while the R9 290 should get you ~$300-$325.

I've yet to read it booming up so im still keeping it as a sunny day fund biggrin.gif

A. 5x Sapphire R9 280X Dual-X

or

B. 4x AMD R9 290 now and 1 more later

Which would you do? I will be running dual 800W PSUs and cooling will not be a problem, the case comes with mounts for a 20in box fan.

I'll be getting 7 on each bord but people say it might be hard to make them all work, I might go with 3 rigs after all but i was planning to install 1050W psus (2 of them) but I guess I'll just make 4 rigs with 1 each psu it seems better.
Also I was planning to get 290s instead of 280X or 290X since 290 can be unlocked to X but 280X's being non-ref is appealing but its also too close (price wise)
So IDK myself but as it appears it'll be 290s in a garage or something biggrin.gif

Looks like I will be going with the R9 280X's. I figured they would be the better choice. +rep! Thank god electricity is free at school! Although profits will go down when I come back for the summer, if things are still profitable by then, although I will have made my money back and more by then.

Yeah, 280X is the way to go atm...I still like 290s but not worth it for a farm atm. for 400 heck yeah xD (msrp frown.gif)
Would you pay $50 on top of a non-ref 280X to get a 290?

Here's the assembly instructions. I'm going to buy four of them and if I decided to expand my mining operation I will copy that design but buy my own materials.

I was thinking of making something close to his system in my dad's workshop, he charges too much to ship to turkey which is the ultimate deal killer for me.

Coinedup works well enough for me. Well, I can at least make orders and see the order book, but their graphs are totally borked for me... all I see there are large empty boxes.

I still got 200K MOON that I mined for just one day, it's so low all of it is just worth 0.004 BTC lol. But makes more sense if I had bought a significant amount- any slight increase even just by 1 satoshi means a whopping increase percentage wise!

This is gonna be interesting once EAC gets its profability set in. I consider an underdog against DOGE, especially for those extra payout days.

I've got 1.24ltc I wanna sell quickly and easily and safely, what's the best place to do this in the UK? I'm not interested in getting as much as I can for it, I just mined it while I temporarily had a 280X

Experience tells me more than 3 or 4 gpus per rig is a pain in the...you know where.
For 50 more I'd go 290, without a doubt. 220w and 850-900kh/s vs 200w and 700-770kh/s.

Just 1.24ltc? You're gonna have to sell for cash, use localbitcoins.com, trade the ltc for btc and sell. You should mine some more, that's too little.

Anyone who wants to put more than two R9 290 in one PC, please don't use the reference cooler if you intend to stay in the same room.

GTX670 Windforce @ %137 TDP (~275W) (320-340 KH/s) (1267MHz/1750MHz)
As a top card 87C@%100 fan (~4200 RPM) << Cannot be heard over the R9 290 cooler @ %55 or more.
As a bottom card 78C@ %67 fan (~2100 RPM)

R9 290 reference @ Stock except 50mV undervolt (830 KH/s) (947MHz/1250MHz)
As a top card 88C@%90 fan (~4900 RPM) too loud, I'm getting headache seriously.
As a bottom card 85C@%70 fan (~3900 RPM)

I'm getting a second R9 290 to replace the GTX670, probably will downclock/undervolt the top card, the noise is unbearable. redface.gif

What program are you guys using to monitor the cards? I've got 5 7970's mining in a rig here and want to monitor max temps, load and fanspeed.

I tied 5 instances of GPU-z, but it took up alot of CPU usage for some reason (80-90%) on a singel core Sempron 145 and it affected my hashing bigtime.
