As I scale up my mining operations, I am running into a dilemma.  Spend more money to buy faster mining cards, or save cash and get slower cards. 

I really believe there is an "early adopter" premium involved in bitcoin, and given the difficulty increases that seems to be a fact.  If I can cram more MH/s into the early going, I will ostensibly earn more bitcoins before the difficulty increases.  However, I spend more to get the higher hash rates.

Does anyone have a good breakdown on this?  Does it always make sense to buy the cheapest MH/$, or do the difficulty increases skew the analysis? 

I am a trusted trader!  Ask Inaba, Luo Demin, Vanderbleek, Sannyasi, Episking, Miner99er, Isepick, Amazingrando, Cablez, ColdHardMetal, Dextryn, MB300sd, Robocoder, gnar1ta$ and many others!

i would buy more expensive cards since they will most likely be sell-able if shit hits the fan, but that's just my opinion, i bought 2*5970 cards. so if everything goes to hell, i just sell one and then i have an awesome gaming rig ;P
