I should have prefaced with this:  I DON'T WANT SOMEONES USED CRAP.

Show me where I can build a NEW system that gets 1500 MH/s for $1,000. 
Am I really going to have to list out links because your too much of a dumb ass to realize 420 dollars for non gpu parts can be easily done....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103944
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134657
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820139292
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138324
48 for extenders
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256057

That leaves 78 dollars from the 420 budget....

But seriously.  I will give you $5,250 to make me 5 of these (must be properly configured for 1,500 MH/s each)....that should leave you a very large profit margin.

You most definitely can get better then a 1.5 ratio but it tends to take a long time to mass produce something like that and you usually have to cut corners like excluding any form of a case.

But seriously.  I will give you $5,250 to make me 5 of these (must be properly configured for 1,500 MH/s each)....that should leave you a very large profit margin. 

If you're actually serious pm me and we will try to figure something out.

absolutely counts....can you give me some details?  I need cases.....these go in an office building, and it does not help "our look" to have computer parts strewn about.

Does this come with an 80+ gold PSU? That is one corner that is terrible to cut. If it does, plz share because i have no idea how you plan to do this. Also, MIR shouldn't be deducted from the price.

1. if you have to pay for electricity, you should not be getting into the mining game at this point, period.

2. if you have to pay for electricity, but you already have 1 or several dedicated rigs running, you should still mine, but start winding down your operation, start selling some rigs. You don't want to be selling them at a much lower price when the mass exodus begins (when difficulty reaches equilibrium with electricity cost, those who have to pay for electricity will inevitably start selling their rigs).

The fact of the matter is difficulty will keep rising until it reaches equilibrium with average electricity cost. The price of BTC will keep falling, because the supply of new BTC each day is overwelming the market, unless another wave of significant adoption comes, BTC price will continue to fall slowly. Until block reward is halved sometime in 2012.

If you would have dated this 08/03/2010, it would have been perfect.

It's almost guaranteed not to. I'm guessing it would be entirely caseless and one of the cheapest psu's which isn't ideal at all on the large scale.

I was curious, so I checked out the price of kWh from my utility. Not bad. $0.0950 per kWh. I need to get a kill a watt meter for my pc.

Just because I have time I'll try to build a high ratio build that cuts all corners with the 5850 @ 145

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138324
48 for extenders
30 for cpu (heat sink not included)
10 for heatsink
6-flash drive
10-ram
580 for 4 5850
90 for psu
total=834
expected megahash=1,600

ratio = 1.91
I guess if you want to add a case add ~$60
ratio=1.79

so you want me to use a MOBO with 2 PCIx slots? 



And with this comment, I will not entertain anymore of your posts until you spend a good day reading as many posts as you can to learn first, then ask good questions later.

We're all quite used to that by now Tiago, we just tend to assume it comes first and foremost from Angelus  Grin

I'd be more than happy to build you as many systems as you want for similar prices above. Of course, my fee for doing all this is not included in that price, and if you're too lazy to do it yourself, it's not gonna be cheap.

I don't really think he is serious about letting us build rigs for him. If he is though he directed it to me originally and I honestly would take $250 dollars from the $5250 he mentioned because I make theoretical builds anyway on my free time Tongue

don't build anything for anyone. Just tell us the parts for your unrealistically cheap system.

I pay 5.8$ for 250 kw  Grin

That's exactly what costs 250kW for ~14min at $0.10/kWh, an average US domestic price.
