Still leaving the overall price way nicer than 1.65Mhash/$

And whats my cost for a translator and shipping put it at  Huh

When I have used one, the shipping was the killer.  It was nearly 50% of the product price.  Ordering things like ram, cpu's, HDs do not make sense for US buyers from taoboa.  Cables, 'brand name' clothing,  component level items like raw chips and other things on the other hand can be a bargain even with high shipping.

That wasn't stated anywhere in your original challenge:

Build me an order for a 6 GPU rig that beats 1.4Mhash/$ (excluding frame) and I'll send you 3BTC.  5BTC if you can beat 1.65Mhash/$. With links and items available to ship - and don't put me in rebate hell.

And if you're so xenophobic as to expect US or where ever you are based only replies to your posts then say so.

Oh and btw Chrome has a built in translation function that makes most of those pages more or less readable.

I actually spent $3000 on a desktop computer that I use for mining.  While it only pulls 1.35 G/Hash, I'll be able to sell this thing in 3-4 years for around $1500 easily.  It's one badass mofo machine, and all the parts are covered under warranty for 4 years.
You'll have to find someone crazy enough to by second-hand power-hungry hardware at the same (or maybe even lower) perf/price ratio as brand new power-savvy hardware. Good luck with that, although I guess it can be found...

Cards:  6x 6870 @ ~130 ea.   =$780

Sempron - 145 - $40

Ram - $9

Adapters - 6* $5        = $25

PSU  x2          =$180

http://ncix.com/products/?sku=63239&vpn=P1850SNLB9&manufacture=XFX


That's ~ $1179

Take an avg of 300MH/card is 1800MH/s ->  1.53MH/$
Take a max of 330MH/card is 1980MH/s  ->  1.68 MH/$

There, met your requirements.  You can do even better if you buy used, up to you..

Since my projections to beat your upper request are assuming all the cards clock well, and my lower beats your lower and assumes they all clock ok..

You can send 4 BTC whenever you're ready.  kthnx

He did not pay the last bounty, why do you think he would pay now?

I don't.  The only difference between my list and the others proposed are:

A)  All click to order, in english, in N.A.

B)  They're all new components (except the refurb cards).   

Which are to address the two BS excuses he had about the other lists.

One can also use smalltao.com which is what I've used in the past since I can't figure out how to purchase my babies (lol) from taobao without A) being a resident of china and B) not having a Chinese bank account/credit card.

Your right it wasn't stated.  I never said I wasn't paying you, I had no way of checking the information because I couldn't read it. Chrome did the job, thank you.

7970 gives a lot more than that.  Mine is overclocked (on air) to 1080/950 and I'm getting about 640 MH.

And to the guy that thinks he's can sell his $3000 rig in 3-4 years for $1500, yeah, good luck with that, it's not gonna happen.  Maybe if you sell it within 12 months, but at the rate stuff is coming out now, you'll be lucky to get 25% of your original cost.  Don't believe me?

Almost exactly 4 years ago, ATI released their flagship 4870 X2 card for $559.  You can grab one now on eBay for about $140 Buy it now and some are selling as auctions for $50-$75...
