Hey guys, I'm trying to build a litecoin mining rig (sorry if this is the wrong place) and I want to make sure that these parts will work together. Thanks for any feedback or suggestions!

RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145346

CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103888

Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151109

GPU (3 of these) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127663

Yup that will work just fine. Smiley That power supply is actually overkill but that gives you room to grow. I just bought the same motherboard and CPU. Installed all the components tonight, Windows is updating as I type this. I bought the motherboard from Newegg.ca and I got free 4 GB of RAM with it. Cheesy You don't need more than 4GB for litecoin if you're using CGMiner.

Aw man, I don't see a 4gb ram deal! Guess I got there late, oh well. I actually downgraded the power supply quite a bit and I'm probably going to get 4 7850's now.

Yes 7950s would definitely be a better miner but that's not to say that 7850s are bad! Just that they're not as good. Tongue

I think the ram deal was on the Canadian Newegg only, and it looks like it JUST went out of stock, I bought mine on Sunday and it arrived today. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157262

once you have a bunch of cards pumping out heat....  you'll wish it was 620khs per 7950,   instead of whatever the 7850 gets... maybe 325khs?

I can't find 7950's anywhere at all =\

Instead, I upgraded my # of 7850's to four. Should produce between 1200 and 1700 KH/s. What do you guys think?

He'll need a new motherboard to support 4 GPUs.  Those bump in price.

To my knowledge, the linked motherboard can support 5 GPUs

How does that make sense when it only has 3 PCIe x16 slots? And you have 4 GPUs that take up 2 slots per GPU. It's just not gonna work.

Are you unaware of 16x to 1x risers? How do you think some people are running 6 GPU setups?

You are going to need Powered Risers for this setup as well. Why?

1) You have more then 3 cards on your board
2) They won't all fit on the board due to thickness
