Asus Crosshair IV Formula motherboard
AMD Phenom II X2 555 3.2GHz CPU
4GB RAM
250 GB hard drive (No OS, wiped clean)
XFX Radeon 6950 (340 MH/s)
Asus Radeon 6870 (300 MH/s)
Sapphire Radeon 5870 (380 MH/s)
Corsair GS800 800 Watt power supply
2x VGA dummy plugs

With a little overclocking this rig can get over 1 GH/s. I can give you the overclocking settings that I figured out for the cards.

No case, I ran this open-air just fine. BTW, that motherboard is badass. I bought it because it would fit 3 video cards, only after I got it home did I discover how awesome it is.

Asking $1100 CDN, plus shipping. Will accept Paypal or BTC. Canadian buyer prefered, but not required.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

FYI, it would take 130 days to earn $1100 with that rig -- assuming free electricity (which few of us enjoy).
Assuming a price of $14.50 a BTC.

I assume you're assuming that difficulty stays the same in the next 130 days?

Yes, you got it. 

Free electricity, no difficulty increases, and you'd STILL have to wait 130 days to see your money back.

Not exactly a no-brainer investment.
