Hi guys,

I'm new to all things mining and abandoned the idea back when we were below $2.00

What I don't understand is why according to the BitCoin wiki the hash rate is going down with new GPUs. ( https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_Hardware_Comparison )

Basically what is the most cost effective GPU to buy these days based only on cost of equipment?

Ati: from 5850 to 6990. some was use even 5830 and 48xx, but thats not so reasonable.

Is it really that hard to make a spreadsheet to calculate hashing power per dollar?

Chalk it up to ATI's confusing naming scheme. 6870 is a weaker card than 5870, also I think miners are not yet optimized for 6XXX.

A rig with two 5970 is very solid if you can find some. If you want to add to an existing machine, a 5870 is good.

more likely not "miners not optimised", but 69xx less suitable for GPGPU usage and bit more suitable for gaming thanks to improved ROP's and memory size/speed.
google [questionably reasonable]difference between VLIW5 [58x0 GPU's]and VLIW4 [69xx GPU's].
