Kinda was thinking about selling them lol. But, I wouldn't be able to buy any after I did. Then I thought I should mine, watched 1 video, and got frustrated by how advanced the whole process is.
Anyway, long story short, yes GPU's are the best to fold on in terms of PPD per watt ratios by far.
Just download NiceHash, let it run the benchmark, and when it's done off you go. ez
Set up a wallet if you don't have one already, too. After about ~$150 it'll cash you out. Depending on how much hardware you have mining depends when you'll get paid.
I mine on my old 950/970/750 Ti at night/when I'm not home and it puts a few bucks in my pocket.
