Do you have math to show this?   I was struggling at end of my GPU day's to make more then electricity.  I was better off and I parted all my GPU systems out.

I have one sitting doing nothing still I kept.  It's a small  unit compared to the 5 and 6x GPU machines I was using.

The continual development of new algorithms for GPU's seems to not let them die out. The concept of GPU mining seems to be a self perpetuating fantasy empowered by the GPU miners themselves.

If you live where electricity is cheap, eg. USA/China/etc then you may still be able to make a profit versus electricity cost but to turn a profit and pay for your investment is another matter. Most places around the world though it is simply impossible to make a profit. Another factor to consider is the time and effort setting up GPU systems and ensuring they are stable with the endless new algos. This takes a lot of time and time is money for most people. IMHO better to get a rock solid ASIC and mine with cheap electricity if it is available and see what comes of it.

Well from my calculations in the USA you can't swing it (esp if with new purchased gpu cards) at 12c usd kwh.....so I've no clue how anybody can do this and break even.
feel free to enlighten us on here

Well I don't think that GPU mining can survive, just as it didn't on Bitcoin. People can keep developing newer algorithms for GPUs, but eventually ASIC miners will come out for them.
I guess it comes down to a race of who can adapt faster. GPU mining is inefficient and should die.

Why did you put them so close to each other? That's actually quite bad because of the airflow.
Mine were put at maximum distance that the riser cables allowed.

because they were 750ti, only 50 watt each, they don't need a large distance like amd card, and they weren't so hot btw

750ti is pretty efficient in some matters of hashing. Or, well.. they were some time ago like a year or so?

I think the same.  I just never could get math to work at this point.  It seems like your losing money on GPU's.

It seems to me you are going to make more parting out and buying BTC then you ever would running the GPU.  Again I hope I'm wrong and would love to see math on it.

2 years ago, this picture made me crazy, but now, i just think 'bout the guy, who must had a lot of trouble for selling all this stuff...

But it's nothing, i remember the pic of the guy in his garage, with a damn lot of GPU's and the caption "I've made a huge mistake" Grin
Not exactly, some coins are still profitable for gpu mining and the hardware is a lot easier to resell and holds value longer.

Well currently a 280x gets $0.24 profit on the top current gpu coin @.06$/w (my current rate .07$ summer), this has to also take into that the cards released January 9, 2012 and can still pump out profit and be resold at 30% original release date price.

When I talk about ROI.   Old GPU cards don't really count as no one can replicate.  I'm talking about a buying parts, and setting it up and making a profit.   It still sounds like .24 cents you cannot build a machine and mine.  And if you parted out you would pay for hundreds of day's of mining.

True, Personally I just built a rig recently because I enjoy mining (weird I know) and am actually not doing the coin shuffle to stay on the highest profit and trade it but just mining dash directly. I am one of those crazies who think that there may end up being a couple valuable coins and with Bitcoin as a Gold standard but Dash as a viable coin as well. (I know I would get more Dash if I just did the shuffle)

Did you research recent news about bitcoin mining? It's already gone era of mining rigs.
You won't profit from GPU rig anymore, it's already ASIC era for quite long time.

Are you assuming he is mining Bitcoin? Because that would be a terribly bad assumption.

Well it's obvious that he is a noob (nothing wrong with this, no offence).
He made a mistake doing so. He had no chance to get ROI. I'm not even going to talk about profit.

Radeon 7950 was the king back in the days.

He can still be producing Bitcoin with it but via a multipool that sells bitcoin, it would be ridiculous to mine sha on anything but an asic.

That gets a bit iffy though - people will start posting selfies in the claim that they perform work at their dayjob which pays them out in zloty and thus enables them to buy Bitcoin Wink

I do wonder about those with GPU rigs whether any of them have tried their hand at vanity mining.  I have no idea what the ratio of that vs (newly launched and thus mine+dumpable) altcoins is.
