If it's just one card, get any of those with good pcb (no iron chokes etc) and good cooler. MSI or Gigabyte, maybe Zotac dual fan..

I've got 6x gigabyte 750 ti in one machine, and all are connected with simple non-powered x1-x16 risers... been working fine 24/7 from ~ February. I wouldn't try connecting 6 cards without 6-pin connectors to one MB though, not with non-powered risers.

So in my experience it's actually the opposite: if you're getting only a few cards, then you can get by with cards that don't have 6-pin connectors (cause you'll likely be able to connect them all to pci-e slots directly, without risers), but if you're building a dedicated rig, it's just safer/cheaper to buy the cards that do have 6-pin external power connectors. A decent PSU usually have 4x pci-e 6/8 pin connectors, so for a 6-7 gpu rig you'll only need 2-3 "molex => pci-e 6-pin" cables and they're included with the cards (at least with gigabyte 750 ti).

By the way, what do you guys mine now? I've tried Jackpot coin and it was not bad while the price was at 2 satoshis, but it's 1 satoshi now and I'm thinking of switching to some other coin. When new ccminer with faster x11 is released, the next most profitable coin will probably be one of those x11 coins, but until then... what to mine? smile.gif

My standard nvidia rig is as follows:

h81 pro btc
6 usb risers
6 zotac el cheapo 750 ti 2gb cards
550w xfx psu
g3220
8gb ddr3

This saves me the hassle of dealing with cheap chinese molex to pci-e adapters or more expensive psus.

x11 at us.trademybit.com...that's what I mine when not mining yacoin.

And how many ppd folding on 750ti?
post #1006 of 1291
It's lower than expected, Stanford doesn't fully support those cards yet.
post #1007 of 1291
I tried Curecoin, at first I was getting about 110k PPD. I tried the advanced view then I'm at 2k PPD with 13days work duration.

Installed and uninstalled it didnt work. Same thing. frown.gif

Did you add any flags to the extra slot options?

I add the client-type beta. Seem to work atm.

PPD is going up. But I'm on Fahcore 0x15 and not 17. frown.gif
