I've sold some of my bitcoin and want to "re-invest" it into some new mining gear - plus I miss my mining days, what fun right.


I want to build one or two new setups, I want to mine ETH and Zcash (or whatever you recommend), overall what do you recommend card wise:


AMD RX ?

NVidia ?


Does your recommendation change if you factor in the cost of electricity?



(please note: I've search for this as well, but you know how the search, it pulls up 1000s of messages, many from 2011 onward - so thanks to all who reply).

How is Nvidia's performance with claymore's dual miner ?


All my existing cards are AMD, but I'm ready to give Nvidia a try, if people recommend.




Thank you
