5830 have a higher power consumption than 5850,

I don't like them much except for scavenging their cooler to put on 5850 Wink

Do you mean you got them at local brick and mortar stores?

Time is money. This means that if you have spare time, you can use it to make money.

Modular, open, and stack-able miner case.

Yes, that's correct, local hardware store... Currently 5830's are $130, 5850's are $210. (CAD)
Usually for one weekend a month they have them on sale for $100 and $190 respectivly.

A great price per performance are the 6950's that can be unlocked to 6970's.

The following card can be unlocked:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127555&cm_re=6950-_-14-127-555-_-Product

You can unlock it by following these directions:

These can do over 400Mhash/s per card for under $250 after the mail in rebate.

It's worth watching Craigslist for these. I've built a small cluster from second-hand (one owner) XFX 5870s. At least for the XFX brand the second owner also assumes the lifetime warranty. Considerable savings.

I like what your proposing. I've been looking into it now for a couple hours. It really does seem to make sense. Put my shopping list together....
