Hi, i'm actually choosing GPU for my Rig, i have 2 options in mind:

Mining eth - 4 x 480 8gb
mining zcash - 4 x 1060 6gb (a bit more profit than 480 with ETH on coinwarz)

But i never see a 1060 mining rig, why ?

(apologize for my english)

there are a lot of ppl having a GTX 1060 RIG, just look better  Grin i sold both of my 1060 and switched completely to 10 x 1070.
In my opinion 1070 has a better resale value and can also mine ETH pretty fine (not that important, since ETH will go PoS sooner or later).
But it depends mainly on your budget and deals you can get for the GPU in your area. For example i was buying 1070 @ 330€ per piece and 1060 6GB was like 270 €, so an easy decision for me.

I'm from EU too (france), i can get  1070 for 360€ and 1060 6gb for 225€ for the cheapest models (http://www.kfa2.com/kfa2/graphics-card/10-series/kfa2-geforce-gtx-1060-oc-6gb.html)
In term of profit it's better to take 1060 with my price.

what is your Sol/s with 1070 ? and what was with 1060 ?

Thank you!

edit: can get ASUS 1070 for 350€ on ebay.

If we don't care about resell Price, with my actual market Price i get:

1060 6gb ~ 315sol/s for 225€ (1,4 ratio)
1070 ~ 420sol/s for 350€ (1,2 ratio)
For 1080 and 1080 ti, it's too much expensive for me.

I don't know about wattpower, but I take average stats.

Someone know the eth hashrate of a 1060 6gb ?

Everyone is going for the 1070 because of density.
You have to split PSU, mobo, RAM , CPU cost on GPU's. Less GPU with the same power have more density

Anyway 1060 are very good, if you find a good offer you should buy them

I think i'll go for 3x1060 + 1x1070 for the moment, i have 6 spot for GPU on my rig. Thanks for the help!

Do I need to avoid some models ?

I plan to buy this:

about 20Mh/s according to Nicehash's profitability calculator.  Currently the biggest profits for NVIDIA are actually mining Lyra2Rev2, although Equihash is still very nice profits.

Why?  That isn't very good when you consider $/Hash.

i think it's different to many people.

Long term mining or not?
resell price
Sell and replace the cards in let's say 1/1.5 years?
Sol/s ratio

etc



Hostyourminer.com

Makes hosting a single miner profitable!

I made some 1060 rig and I regret it, I'd rather have higher density, although 1060s will lose less value over time as it's a midrange card, 1070 is probably the sweet spot right now.

People did not choose 1060s because they liked it, except for a few people. People choose them because there is a shortage of 1070s. This is sure that 1070s  are better, but they are harder to find.

1060 6gbs are good if you cant find any cheap 1070s. 300 sols zcash hash rate should be the norm. Theyre pretty good esp if youre just starting.

The question is should you even be starting, now that ETH is about to go POS..
