Hello,

I like to get mining and got 2 questions I cannot seem to find answers to, hope anyone of you can help me out.
I got 2 identical PC's I can use for mining, I need to get VGA cards and from my research ATI 5870 GPU's seem to be the best value for money.

Questions:

1. Is there a prefereable brand of card to use or will any 5870 be ok? Linux miner)
2. Will 1 PC with 2 5870's mine more than 2 PCs with 1 card each? (assuming there is no difference in power consumption)

Thanks in advance for any help.

-edit-
Got an answer to question 2 from here: https://www.bitcoin.org/smf/index.php?topic=7733.0
better 2 cards in 1 machine because performance is the same but no extra PC overhead (electricity).


My GF thinks I'm useless, if you think otherwise and can proof it to her, please do so and donate:
