Looking at current AMD GPU prices it might not be such a bad deal after all.

Why would you slap an i3 in a mining rig? Just put a sempron or celeron and save 70 bucks. Not worth buying.

Overpriced and how would anybody game with such a processor LAWL.

Not sure if you were joking or not, but this is not a gaming PC. It is for people that want to buy an already setup good to go Crypto/Alt coin mining PC.

Mining PCs do not need a powerful CPU. Even the one listed is over powered for what is needed.

Then you must of not read the article.

They should just do the two extremes. This has no appeal to miners (because of the unnecessary parts) and limited appeal to gamers.
A gaming rig with an i5/i7, 8 GB RAM and either of those GPU configurations would be a gaming beast while being just as good at mining as these.
A mining rig with a Celeron, 2 GB RAM, no Office and either of these GPU configurations would be a solid miner while not doing games well.

Really, a gaming rig will do mining well as long as it has the GPU power needed. There is no point in making a separate line of PCs which are simply gaming PC's that don't do gaming well.

EDIT: Celerons are cheaper than Pentiums.

The only thing about is some miners are nuts about lowest power usage possible... not sure about all the various processors and their idle or near idle power usage but that might've been something they were thinking.

I know in reading a lot of "build-a-miner" articles and forums posts I see people using celerons and i3s so Cyber might've been going off of what the community has been using.

There was an article about this in Max last month (A similar machine). There is a bit of false advertisement as it says you can pay off the rig in 5 mos of mining Doge. That depends on the market for Doge and difficulty, among other variables. There are several(many) coins right now with higher payback than Doge but do you think people buying it based on the fact that, "you can pay it off in 5 months!!", know this? Mining is a specialized market with low power CPUs, small SSDs or cheap HDs, and as cheap as possible cases; plus a lot of 30A circuits depending on your setup.tongue.gif Boutique vendors should stick to shipping "GAMING" PCs. It would be okay, however, if they said a particular machine was "efficient" at mining in the fine print. thumb.gif Just my .02.

Pick a socket. Now pick a board with the most PCI-E (1x to 16x) slots available. Now buy the cheapest possible processor for that mobo. wink.gif
