Hello all,

I am planning to build a mining rig of 8x Geforce 1080 TI cards.

I am pretty new to mining, so I have a few questions as follow:

- Is it a good investment?
- How long will it take to get the money back and profit?
- Is mining solo or in a pool more profitable?
- What mining software to use?

Thanks a lot for your time.

Mate, I don't mean to be rude, but all the answers to your questions can be found with a simple search. It's been asked over and over and over again. I was once new to mining too but I did my research, ain't that hard. Still:

- Honestly, there's not good answer to this. Rule of thumb: invest what you can afford to lose
- Depends on what coin you mine, its price, difficulty...whattomine.com will give you an insight
- Pool
- There are a ton available, just browse the forum

Do your research as these are the most basic questions.

One thing I'll say is you'll need at least two big ass power supplies for that many 1080 Ti's as they use 250-300 watts (375 with maximum overclock) depending on model.
