Hello, i want to make some upgrade on my PC.
Its actually a gaming PC but now i want to optimize it for mining too.
Im currently mining Monero and my specs are:

CPU Intel i5 2500 3.3Ghz
8GB RAM
Motherboard Itautec ST4273
Font Corsair CX430
GPU AMD Radeon 5800


I was thinking about replacing the GPU, since my i5 is not bad at all for CPU mining. am i correct?
If so, which would be the best GPU for mining under my actual font (plz note that even saying its 430W i think the real wattage is something like 336W)
And in case i do need a better font, whats specs would you reccomend?

PS: i currently live in a country with very high taxes for hardwares so i cant just buy the latest stuff.
PS²: im not concerned about the ROI atm, since i also use the PC to play and surf the web, so its actually something i always do upgrade.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Well the gear is fine with the exception of the gpu.

Try to replace the gpu with a r9 380. Or with a rx 470

Make sure the new gpu has 4gb ram.

Good luck.

Don't try two gpus as the psu is a bit weak for 2.

You can also try to get cheapo 280x's

They do use a bit more wattage but still delivers a decent hashing speed

He has a pretty weak psu  the cx430  from corsair  should do 200 watts for the gpu no more.  I am not sure the 280x  will work.  maybe if he gets it and undervolts a bit along with a little downclock action.

An AMD RX 460 should be fine since its minimum requirements is a 350W power supply.

I think every GPU listed here needs a better font than a Corsair cx430 as i understand.
Ill probably get a new font too.

thnx for all the replies!
