I built my 6x R9 270 Last week for $1762.91 exactly. And its pushing 2.68 MH/s
I also picked up 4x ASUS 280x @ $320/ea for my new rig to keep at work. If you are patient you can find the deals. I just have to wait another 2 weeks before they arrive.

When they are in stock 270(non-X) go for $190-210. That's only $1200 for a 420-460 KH/s card.. Just sayin...

I'm sure you're right, that there are better deals out there if you're patient and persistent.  Just keep in mind that time is money, or about $15-20 USD/day currently.

Edit: I also doubt you have the same warranty benefits.  The Tiger Direct square trade warranty is a miner's wet dream.  My rig is a true zero-risk investment.

Correct, I do not have anything but the manuf warranty on my items and my homeowners, which has a $250 deductible on computers.

Hi all:

Sorry I was away for a bit, day job got a bit mental! but back now.

So yes as someone has posted, we decided to buy 6 x R9 270 (non-X), these cost £844
PSU, Mobo, Processor for about £250
Risers were about £70
Some metal bits in my shed to build a DIY style Chassis £0

The risers were unexpectedly more expensive than first thought.
I would say these are pretty standard prices in the UK.

...and guess what... we forgot a switch to turn the thing on and off!! Hopefully get that tomorrow and I'll post a pic of this rig.

I can't wait to buy this switch and find the time tomorrow to build it.

Any a advice where to test the rig on? I've used coinmine.pw and multipool.us on my PC with low Khs but I'm wondering if there is a better option?

Thx

Have fun building the rig.  If everything goes to plan it's fun.  When blank screens pop up your pull your hair out.

Buy coins with the rest of the $ since coins a relatively cheap right now.

I'd buy about 4 AntMiners.
The rest, I would buy GridSeeds and mine LTC/Doge.

Just me though.

Ive been researching the GridSeed and I have a general question. At 360 kh/s you will generate around 22.4 Lightcoin a year. Thats roughly $375 a year in USD. Are you guys speculative mining hoping LTC goes up in price over time? I don't see how much money can be made with these machines.

If I had a spare $10k to invest today, I'll probably split like below

$6000 to outright buy BTC

$2000 to pick up 3 (maybe 4 if you try to get a used one) Antminers S1 - these will most probably hit ROI and then some. Once you set them, its pretty much all done. I will probably just restart them once a week but other than that, they don't need any intervention from me.

$2000 to pick up about 10x Gridseeds, giving you 3.6MH for scrypt at about 70 watt total power consumption. Mine DOGE and LTC. If they go up, you'll reach ROI much quicker.

My apartment is just too hot from Antminers, so for me these gridseeds are great to mine and speculate in my favorite scrypt currencies (just for fun), but yes I'm long term bullish on BTC, LTC and DOGE... In any case, these only need 7watt each to run. For me that's much better than buying more gpus at this stage. For me at least, it was easy because I just sold my 290s (which were already paid for) and reinvested the same in gridseeds for an almost equivalent amount of hash at much less power (and heat generated). Starting from scratch, I can see how this may take longer to ROI now but if prices go up, it will be quicker (that's my long term thesis as virtual currencies gain wider adoption)

People throw away more at a poker table in Vegas and maybe that has better odds... this to me is a hobby and a way to stay involved in this still nascent area... You'll need to figure out where your motivation lies. The area is ripe for entreneurship. If you really want to make money, think of new ideas and build interesting products and services around that that will some day change people's lives.

With 10k, a KNC miner seems like a good option. But since its still MONTHS out, ROI is not going to be as high as calculations right now seem. I'd probably:

1. Buy some of the gridseed "antminers", which do 5.2 mh/s @140w.
It might be gone, heres what I found: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/gridseed-blade-miner-available-preorder-161700851.html
2. Invest in coins that you see potential.
3. Buy rigs, you could buy 7 6 r9 270 rigs. I'd probably x11 as it seems to be the "next" algo.
