Hi,
I have a 6990 card and I want to run it in a case. Want to get best value for money here as I don't have alot of money to spend. I need to get motherboard, psu etc...

Thanks.

Since 6990s blow half the hot air inside the case
I have figured out that using an antec 300 (40$)

Having the bottom fan push in and the top pull out does very cool very well if you make a wall beteen the two going to the gpu.

oh and drilling a big hole in the bottom of any case and having the front pull out work with almost any cases.

PSU and boards are now really a problem, Corsair/SeaSonic 600/650w is suggested, the EA650 Green is best for cost (~40-50$)

Thanks for that. Now just need to get an idea of MB and CPU.

Thanks again.

It's all about the game, and how you play it

Thanks again.

Popular choices for mining rig cpu's are AMD sempron and Intel Celeron processors, there tend to be more expandable motherboards avilable for the sempron however if you're only worried about a single 6990 build either a 775 system or a 1155 system using a intel celeron you'll save a few watts doing that

If you found that funny or something i said useful i always appreciate spare change

You have a single 700$ gpu and want to go cheap on everything else ?

My miners have cheap cpu and cheap everything because nobody would use a 5 gpu wood rack as a desktop PC.
