Hello everyone!

I have been reading forum for past week, and more I read - more confused I got.

Looking for a GPU that can play games as well as mine Z coin while not using the computer. Budget is round 600$.

Take your time and learn how to use that site and many other linked throughout the forum.  Jumping into to mining will require understanding how these sites work. I would not recommend buying anything until you know how everything works.  You will need to know where and how you will mine. What coins you want to target and know if you are maximizing the use of each card. Also find out what your electric costs are. This will help you get an idea of your actual projected profit. You need to understand each setting and how it effects hashratea. Not knowing these things you will lose out on potential profit or end up costing yourself money in the end.

Just buy a bunch of cheap radeon 7970/280x if you want to mail Z cash.

If you want to mine ETH then get the RX serieis 470/480

Maybe look at ASIC mining. Lower power, more hashes.

I also suggest going with nVIDIA - and also choose a brand that has a good warranty if you plan on running the card all the time.

I would suggest that you buy whatever card has the features you want for gaming and then just enjoy the mining you get out of it when you are not gaming.. that's a great way to get started actually.

GPU'S....... let me think for sec
guys I would say GTX1070-1080ti are best they have two plus points 1st is gives you good hash par sec. and second one is after you done with mining I mean like for some reason you have to stop mining you can get better money to sell GTX then AMD.
my thoughts

I found out, that evga 1070 SC is one of the best to use because of great vents and great gurantee. Decend hash/watt ratio and overall quality. And also, price is going down for it. Any opinions?

If you don't care for re-sale value for your cards, go for rx 470 mining edition.. U can push them to 28.6 mh/s + 700 dcr on dual easily. If you care about re-sale value, think about gtx 1070... Those will go like hot bread, when mining won't be profitable anymore..

As I got you already have a PC platform with proper PSU. So GTX1080 would be good choise for you (Select 3-slots cooler GPU - Giga AORUS, Asus ROG GBPS, Palit JS,SLS,GR,GRP)

You can buy Radeon RX 480 4 or 8 Gb (it depends on your budget). You can also mine using Radeon Fury X 4 Gb. These GPU will be also good for games. But my advice: get two computers: 1 for mining and another one for gaming.

You can read also the information about how to pick the best GPU for Z cash and other crypto.

The best solution is to find a card of 1080 ti.
If anything happen, it then sell is not ashamed!  Grin
But it's eating up to 300 watts.
Therefore, it is necessary to watch WTM and think that it is better for U.  Wink

I ended up with 1070ti that was on sale last week.

Lots of info and options, but wanted to get one in order to start. Using a Nicehsh pool and getting round 2.5$/day which is OK with me but I see that with some O/C hash rate and $ can get a bit higher.

This forum is a great pool of knowledge, and I do have much more to learn.

This is with one card right you can mine the altcoins like Monero or Ethereum. I have got the information states that mining altcoins would be the right choice with the altcoins only. If we mine with the multiple cards means we can get more profit by the way right.
Because with the multiple cards you will be able to get the more hash power which can mine the more blocks.

Mathematics don't lie Smiley multiple cards will lead to exponentially increased profits. I am happy with this so far and looking into adding another one when on sale

Yes, Monero. Also there were no VGAs at the moment when I was making a decision to order.
