I wonder what "cryptographic hashing node" he was participating in...

From Craigslist:

I am selling three desktop PC's I built myself. These computers are only six months old. They were built for a cryptographic hashing node I set up in my apartment.
They have top of the line AMD/ATI graphics cards which are optimized for integer operations and ideal for security hashing. They will make excellent gaming PC's.

Here are the full specs:

Athon II X2 250 CPU
Sapphire Radeon 5850 GPU
2GB GSkill RAM
250GB Seagate HD
Gigabyte MA78LMT-S2 Motherboard
Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Case
Raidmax 630 watt Power Supply

The first photo shows all the parts exactly that went into these machines. Second photo is a close-up of one of the 5850's. These are really nice cards built under license by Sapphire. Best I have seen.
The third photo is a close-up of the CPU in box. It's a dual core Athlon series by AMD, one of the most popular and reliable CPUs for gaming. Last photo shows all three assembled PC's.

I am selling three of these! If you want more than one let me know.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

These machines do NOT have optical drives. Due to the ease of USB OS installs and direct-to-drive downloads I have not been putting optical drives into my new machines. If you have an old computer you are replacing and want the optical drive from it moved to one of these I will be happy to install it for you. Second, these computers are presently running Ubuntu Linux. Once again, if you own a copy of Windows and would like it installed I would be happy to do it for you.

That's all. Please email if you have any questions. Also, I am available to build other custom computers to your specifications. If interested, email me and we can figure out what will suit your needs.

Thank you.

5830s have become damn cheap on Ebay over the last week or so. That is definitely overpriced.

Did this guy really only put one video card in each PC?

I'm more interested in knowing why he decided to wear such short shorts when taking a picture to display the card...

?

Really? Higher end maybe but not exactly top..  CPU seems a little heavy for mining and a little light for gaming too.

It does seem like a strange setup.. I wonder what he was doing as well.. with a total of 3 5850s he shouldn't have had too much of a heat/electricity problem..

I just bought 7 5830s off of ebay for an average price of $102 each shipped. I also got a nice 5970 for under $350 shipped.

You are still buying hardware at this exchange rate?  I'm happy to still run my rigs but I am not planning to add capacity just now.  Do you have a goal capacity? or do you just buy hardware you can get a good deal on?

I have more 5830s on ebay if you want 'em. They run hot and they're inefficient as hell. They use more power than a 5850 and only hash at 85% the rate of a 5850.

What? is this true?

No, they're even slower than that. Smiley
