Hello, fellow miners!

I have a couple of questions regarding Bitcoins, mining and graphics card...

1. So I`m currently mining on my AMD 5970 and it gets about 750 m/hs. Is it really worth buying more gpus or mining computers in the long run? Do I really get enough bitcoins to cover my expenses in the future?

2. If I were to buy a new mining box, what gpus should I buy? I would only be able to fit 2 cards and not the most expensive ones e.g 6990`s

Thanks you and I hope I have posted in the right forum xD

Continuing to run currently owned mining hardware is definitely good, as long as your electricity costs are covered. Purchasing new mining hardware is... not so clear. You might make a profit, you might not even break even. Make sure to take difficulty increases into account when doing any calculations.

2. If I were to buy a new mining box, what gpus should I buy? I would only be able to fit 2 cards and not the most expensive ones e.g 6990`s

5970 is still the top dog. As far as I know, it hashes faster than the 6990 and it more efficient.

No, the 6990 is definitely faster, I have both.

I wouldn't say definitely, at least not in all cases.
