Im looking at building a mining rig with a budget of $1200
Just looking for some advice and if anyone's willing to list the parts that would be needed to get the most mhash/s possible for $1200!

Thanks!

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

If I were going to start from scratch today knowing what I know now I would go with:

then get 3 or 4 of

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=172018&CatId=3669

It gives an 1MH/s to US$1 or better ratio with 4 cards, the possibility of running 3 cards with 1 slot space between them for cooler operation, or running 4 cards next to each other and the expandability to run better cards later.
