if its possible please can you answer these 3 questions that i have been thinking of recently it would help greatly question 1= can laptops do this. i have a nvidia gtx1050 6gb gpu witb 8gb ram and ssd/hdd combi with i7 8th gen processor? question 2= i have a tower unit that has an i5 processor with 16gb ram and a mixture of gpu cards. would it be safe to use different gpu's in one computer or do i HAVE to have the same gpu in each slot? ( if you can use old model gpu's of course) question 3 is there a way to use the extra gpu's using a laptop to cut down on having the extra tower? or using the tower to use the laptops gpu?

Could u do a tutorial on setting it all up after u have the parts
everwharesismine (3 months ago)
I realize that this video is aged.... but Im just now getting into the mining game and I want to express my thoughts... several of these types of videos talk about ROI of buying the parts to these rigs and Ive been thinking about that. I find that to be a false standard and here is why. An investment is something you put money into in hopes it will gain value and as we can tell so far computer parts do NOT gain value. Buying these parts should be considered sunk costs and paying for electricity is the cost of doing business or overhead. If you buy a car to get to your new job across town, you don't consider ROI on the car also, maintenance costs are going to continue. If you don't buy the car, you don't go to work, same for these rigs, if you don't buy them, you don't mine. The difference is do you want to go to work in a $1500 beater or a new luxury car? Your budget is what dictates that, just as with these rigs. Im going long term as with all my investments, hoping in the future their value will be more than it is today and that is what, I believe, we should be focusing on when buying these rigs. Of course we must consider how much mining we can do in the future on a rig if the computations become more difficult but that is cost of doing business... I don't expect to make back what ive spent on my rig because I know I will have to replace it to keep mining. I just want to make more money than is costs in electricity to mine and hopefully the market will increase on my altcoin investments.

That's what I'm seeing. It all appears to be pre-orders, but I figured you would "know a guy!" Keep up the awesome videos man, i've learned a ton!

can u give some info on how mch internet data will mining consump per day and minimum banwidth need for mining?😢
Isabel Nel (4 months ago)
So if my maths is correct does it take 260 days to pay off a R9000 rig? So does that mean you make R9000 in 260 days with this Rig? because that is not a lot of money

mining is a cancer on the gaming players and companies,....
marty reavis (3 months ago)
Burner Fire well.. If your one of the idiots that mine.. I'm sure you'll pay off your $20k rig in.... 100 years or so... Seeing as how your profits run you around 10 cents a day. After overhead.... Hense the burn. Also all those scams that hit most of you lol. Now.. Prices are falling and I'm not the one whining..... Those trying to recoup something from thier dumbass choice on the other hand... Yea ;).... If course... Arguing with someone on the internet is just dumb... Seeing as how you will have a rebuttle like... " I make $500 a day asshole" and yet... Can't show proof on here... Though I can just say.... Look it up. Theres tons of proof for What I say. Also... Mining is onlu cancerous for now... I am hoping that they finally finish those strictly mining gpus... Those without any video output. That way things will drop even further.

Saw a video online and 'Gold Miners' were recommended to have the best setup then i resolved for investing a couple hundreds with them , the profit has been massive and i've been reinvesting them . Send a message to goldminers @ techie . com if you're seriously interested .

Going to buy rx 580 with my brother. He also has 1050ti, but we probably won't use it, or, I don't know if we can combine them. Can we?

Hi I want to start mining, what mining software should i use? Currently using Nicehash but nog alot of profit.
Travis Deming (3 months ago)
With the prices of graphics cards rising due to the cryptocurrency gold rush, it's now more sensible to buy a pre-built device for mining . You can purchase your low energy consuming cryptocurrency mining rigs with an impressive hash rate which determines your profit . Serious inquirers should message goldminers @techie . com for business.
Burner Fire (3 months ago)
NiceHash is good if you don't want to worry about actually trading the mined coins for BTC and such. Low profit on NiceHash is relative to your hardware/software. There's others like Claymore and Nova, but those you will have to mine the coins and trade them yourself. If you haven't overclocked your GPU download MSi AfterBurner and Heaven Benchmark. Run the benchmark load the MSI and go as high as you can without the benchmark crashing. Then rebenchmark Nicehash and you should increase your profit a little.

For cheap GPUs, I highly recommend EVGA's B-Stock. These are used or refurbished cards that are factory recertified to meet the performance and reliability of a new card. You can get some really sweet deals if you keep an eye on their B-Stock page. I saw a GTX 1080ti on there for just under MSRP a few days ago.
