I have about $450 to spend on new GPUs to add to my current rig, what would you buy?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was thinking 2 R9 270's, any better options? I am currently running a GTX 780 Ti and a HD 5850. I am mining Vertcoin

Thanks, Griff

How much power overhead do you have left on your PSU? That will determine if you do 3x750TIs or 3x265s

one 290. at the end of the day who want to get stuck holding mid-range GPUs...

R9 290 if you can get it for ~ $450 , just make sure you tune it for less power use
(~400 kh/s)

GTX 750 TI if electricity is more than 25 cents per kwh and you get them for ~ $150 or $160.
(~130 kh/s)

R9 280X is ~ 300 kh/s but some people report 350 kh/s

Agreed since the price/performance ratio is better than two 270x's. If this mining craze ever crashes, it's better to be left with a high end GPU than a low end GPU as well.
