Hi,

Actually my knowledge about bitcoin mining is very little and i found that i cant get the latest model of RX 580 to mine (bitcoin or eth) neither i can purchase antminer etc .

But in my local shop i found that GTX 1060 6gb is available and recently i understand that i can make use of nichhash and sell my hash power to them and earn bitcoins.

I have mother board with sli support pcieX4 and pcieX16 so max i can use 2 card but on net its mention that 1060 do not support 2 cards combine.

so my questions

Can i make use of PCIx4 separately and use 2 1060 ?
Nichhash need 0.01 BTC for payment and its going to take at-least 10 month to recover the cost is any other low payment provider available i cant wait 10 month for 1st payment
I can get nvidia 730 4gb but they don't come with external power so i cant use USB riser or can i ?

What i need a way to mine or earn Bitcoin ( or may be ethereum )  but i have only limited access of resource .

any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Even if card itself don't have SLI support, you don't use it. You can run as many cards for mining as your MOBO will let You.
For Nicehash, they are paying 0.001 balances each weekend as I remember, but You could also mine some coins directly and sell them whenever You like on exchange.
For 730 4gb - not for mining, You'll earn little to nothig. If card dont have external power connection it draws all power from PCIE slot. You still need to power risers (they are powered directly from PSU) or plug it direcly into Your mobo.
