i dont understand those digits and numbers, if someone has any of those i mentioned, i would like to hear what they have to say

in case that you have free electricity, which card would be the best, i dont care for noise or heat either

If you have free electricty you can use whatever you get cheap
best cards are rated for low electrict consumption so if ytou are getting free electricty choose cheap and best gpu and start running every second if precious with free electricty.

I have 3 PowerColor Radeon R9 280X TurboDuo OC. Nice and quiet cards, a bit wormer than gigabyte. Running around 710 khash@1,09V. Not the best overclockers, low ASIC reads (60% ish), so to reach 750 khash, You'll need around 1,15V and 1080 MHz core speed. Still the price is very good. If you dont care about electricity costs, powercolor is not a bad chioce. TBH, I would look for Sapphire Dual X (11221-00-20G).

now is hard to find Sapphire Dual X here  :-\

they say that those R9 280X are good at Watt/MH, is there some cheaper card with a similar hashrate, but poor in Watt/MH?



there is good thread about 280X https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=470496.new#new

I would get the 3GB Gigabyte R9 280X WindForce 3X OC GV-R928XOC-3GD

I use the same but Gaming Edition and get a stable 730kh/s Stock as a rock

MSI Gaming for pure hash. Keep in mind though, the new revisions (38SB, 48SB) etc cannot be undervolted via custom bios at this time in linux. A windows hack exists but doesn't retain settings after reboot and needs to be applied each time.

so you say that MSI Radeon R9 280X GAMING 3 GB is better choice than Gigabyte Radeon R9 280X OC, 3GB?

i am interested in hashrate of those

The main knock on the Sapphire cards is that the company has poor warranty support.  You have to jump through hoops, pay for shipping, etc. before they will honor it.  I've hear MSI and others are much better.

If you are taking so much time to decide, you may as well give up already. I just ordered my first batch of 20 gridseeds today; getting  delivered in about 4 days from LA. Really looking forward to mining these shitty scrypt altcoins out there.
