So like the title say I am in a business with the internet cafe. Where I am situated it's realy famous and I have alot of client. I want to grow my business and buy 10 new computers. I want these computer to be able to mine when they are vacant. I am ready to spend 1000$ to 1500$ per computer ( 2000$ max if it's realy improve the computer from a 1500$ computer ).

These computer also need to be able to play the newest game in the world.

So I was wondering what hardware should I buy if I want to do this? Note that many computer don't ship where I am. I am situated in Thailand.

Thanks you very much for your help.

Here is a good starting point with some examples of various rigs - dedicated and hybrids (gaming and mining in off time) - https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_rig . Good Luck - sounds fun!

58xx series are better for bitcoin but slightly worse for gaming than the 68xx series due to the number of parallel processing engines.

The 58xx will still be acceptable for gaming, especially in a CrossFire Config.
