custom made bitcoin rig

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hi im intrested in making a custom rig for mining and this is what ive came up with:

CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 270 3.4GHz Dual-Core Processor (£37.31 @ Dabs)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 ATX AM3+ Motherboard (£123.50 @ Amazon UK)
Memory: Kingston Blu Red Series 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£24.68 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 250GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£19.19 @ Aria PC)
Video Card: PowerColor Radeon R9 270X 2GB Video Card (2-Way CrossFire) (£141.99 @ Ebuyer)
Video Card: PowerColor Radeon R9 270X 2GB Video Card (2-Way CrossFire) (£141.99 @ Ebuyer)
Wireless Network Adapter: TP-Link TL-WN727N 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Wi-Fi Adapter (£5.17 @ Amazon UK)
Power Supply: EVGA 600B 600W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply (£48.72 @ Scan.co.uk)
Total: £542.55

This is just an glimpse of idea, budget, lets say its 550 gbp. The thing that bugs me is how much megahash these cards will generate on full load, ill probably be OCing them a little, yes there is no case because it will be laying on some glass panel, it will be only for btc mining, there is no purpose for gaming on it, for that i build something else (2 parts left to buy) but nvm this.

270x is pretty much a rebadged 7870 GHZ, so look for others with that.
Rig looks fine otherwise! But I would order more stuff from the same place, buying at several places will cost you a lot in shipping.
