Snagged: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131641&cm_re=p6x58d-_-13-131-641-_-Product

for $53.99 openbox at microcenter today

I'm interested in utilizing it for mining.

A few weeks back, I'd slap in 4x 5830s, dual 500W PSUs, a low end i7, and call it a day.

Obviously the GPU market has gone to hell since, so anyone care to recommend how to set this up as a mining rig?

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

Theoretically unlimited given the realistic hardware constraints of populating a single motherboard, however I'd like to keep things as economically minded for short-term mining as possible. This is the reason I hopped on the 5830 bandwagon a long time ago, obviously I need some other ideas now.
