I would go get a really crappy desktop and then purchase USB Scrypt Asic devices and run them off that computer, save your money for a nice gaming computer for you to use and not ruin the graphics cards, due to their lessening efficiency when it comes to hashing power and cost to run.

Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a transaction fee.

Crappy desktop is around $100++ And the amount of power used to operate it wouldnt make it even profitable. Buy a raspberry Pi instead, uses less power, less space.

He would still need the power to run the GPU even running on a RasPi, true it would be less power but more of a mess since its not enclosed in a tower.

Unless your'e stating to run the usb miners on a Raspberry then your statement makes sense.

Hey Guys
I know this has been asked a thousand times but i'm overwhelmed with the amount of info out there. I would like to take a gamble with bitcoin mining and my primary goal is to cover my costs and if i dont like it to have atleast a decent gaming PC at the end Smiley

Money is not a problem really, i just want to have a decent bitcoin rig and be able to convert it to a excellent gaming rig if it doesnt work out.

So what are your thoughts on the following setup?

Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 7970 Windforce 3X 3072MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card         323.99x2 or x3
Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 AMD 990FX (Socket AM3+) DDR3 Motherboard                       141.98
AMD Piledriver FX-8 Eight Core 8350 Black Edition 4.00GHz (Socket AM3+) Processor - Retail           161.99
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C10 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10)   99.95
Corsair Professional Series HX+ 1050W '80+ Gold' Modular Power Supply (CP-9020033-UK)      170

I already have a case, hd and cooling sorted.

Id really appreciate any helpful thoughts or suggestions. Thanks in advanced.

Regards

Click,


You may also consider buying used rig's on eBay for cheap price.

He's talking about USB ASICs isn't it. I am referring on his plan on buying a computer an buy USB ASICs.
