Looking for someone in NYC willing to sell me a mining rig at a reasonable price. I'm looking for something around 1GHash/s but more is welcome too. I need to be able to verify the hash rate running at a sustainable temperature first.
Define "reasonable". Because 90% of the time, it's going to be cheaper to build one yourself then to buy one.
I heartily agree. It will be of less expense to construct the machine yourself than to purchase it second hand. More importantly, perhaps, is that you will know
the machine if you build it yourself, and for mining equipment of considerable expense, I believe it is very important to know the device intimately. Things will
go wrong, and you should know in your bones what it is when it happens - and you will, if you build it yourself.
Consider also this - there is a deep satisfaction with watching wealth spring forth from the work of your own hands. Have you ever crafted wood, or forged iron? I have done both! The sensation is similar, and it is exquisite. Fruit is never so sweet as when you pick it yourself.
