So I just posted my first idea about renting space to miners (http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=18196.0
) now for #2!
A friend of mine owns a small private electronics refurb center. I spoke with him today about Bitcoin and sparked an interest. I explained to him that from what I understand both the Radeon 5xxx and 6xxx are in ridiculously high demand and he was quite excited! He said that he has some and continues to bring more in all the time, and that he would love to test the market for them. He said he also has the parts to create full rigs, but I don't even want to get started into that yet, I'll stick with the GPUs for now.
I would want to accept both BTC or cash--that way a fair price could be established either way, but I would also be doing my part in trying to accelerate the "BTC for goods" market.
What I need help with is what hardware am I looking for? I didn't have an answer to give him today, so I have no idea what quantities of what I would have access to--I just need to know what to go after.
If anyone has any input it would be greatly appreciated, also--any miners or companies catering to miners that would have any potential interest in a bulk package please feel free to post here or PM me, I'd love to shoot ideas off ya!
