LOL, never...


No seriously. If ASICS don't come online in October you might possibly pay it off in 6 months. Thats my armchair math though.

I also assume you have a spare comp with an open pci-e slot that runs 24/7 and that your electricity is cheap($0.08 kwh).

But if you are going to use it for gaming you can pay a good $120 off atleast after 3 months of mining.

5870s are what, 150 here on the forums? Ebay has similar prices. If you can pick up a 5970 for ~250, however, I'd say that's your best bet.

I dont believe any card will fully pay for itself without selling it in december. All my models show once you factor in power usage, increasing difficulty, drop in reward and the cost of card depreciation, somewhere between december and feb is the point to dispose of your card unless your avg cost of power is very low.

Perhaps a couple of new 6770's ($89 refurb, $99 new at newegg) overclocked to 1010mhz should give you about 450mhash.  Safter than rolling the dice on used cards.

No. 1.5btc/day is about 4GH. Watercooled 7970 might do 750MH.

Nope. My 7970 runs at 1080MHz, and I get 695Mh/s.

Very likely that you never recoup your cost if you buy a GPU now.

Extremely unlikely. Look at the difficulty graph:

I got a single 7970, and I put all my money into ASICs. I hate only mining at 700Mh/s, but I also game, so I love (LOVE) the 7970.

If I didn't game, I prolly wouldn't of even gotten the card. 6 months ago, you could have made your money back, but not now.

If you wanna buy a used one now, I think they're going for like $350. You could pick up a used one, mine for 2-3 months (maybe make 20BTC), and then sell it around Christmas time for ~300. Still a net profit in a 3 month timespan.

Just to make sure it's repeated enough times.

If you are not a gamer (you stated this). Don't invest in GPU's now, it's too late, difficulty is rising to levels that only ASIC's and only for a short period FPGA's are affordable and will give any decent ROI.

A GPU's only ROI is what you can resell it for, not for mining over the next 2 months. Considering any GPU bought now will only lower in price when it comes to reselling it, it's going to be a either going to be a lose overall or break even even after 2 months of mining.

I can only see one way to possibly make any money with GPUs in a 2 month time span:
