This a good deal for a starting point for a miner? I assumed it was, my plan was to acquire a better psu (cooler master issued 550w in this) and some cards and mine!
If i can actually get this it would be incredibly good as buying all the parts from scratch is way more than this, sure i lose 2 slots but i win lots more
I think that's OK, how many PCI slots does it have?
Also, quick question guys. I have a 750W PSU running a 7950 and R9 290. Long story short, when I use a 7850 and 7950 in this machine, the 7950 gets 665KH/s. With the 290 in the machine instead of the 7850, the 7950 gets only around 590KH/s. Any ideas what could be doing this? I'm using the same configuration for the 7950 in both scenarios, and the machine is powered by a 3570k, 6GB RAM, and power draw from the wall is around 650-660W.
