Switching from green to red, just bought a r9 290.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Did I make the right decision?

Bought this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150683

I was lured into AMD since I found out NV was bad for mining and I want to try getting into that. Might as well have my PC making me money while I not gaming on it. rolleyes.gif

I don't think GPU mining is profitable any more, at least not for bitcoins, maybe litecoins or something

are you getting aftermarket cooling for your 290? biggrin.gif

Litecoins are still quite profitable with GPU mining...
