PC (RADEON RX480 8GB)
When I went to PC I didn't see any point buying any more consoles I just didn't have the time to justify the costs anymore I already had a PC and at the time I was mining bitcoin in a big way so had plenty of graphics cards to use after the end of their useful life when ASIC miners started hitting the market so put a couple in my PC and joined steam and later upgraded to an R9 270x and then the RX480 also have a GTX1050 in my laptop although that's barely used now since I got a Chromebook
Made $1 Million mining. Want to Cash out. worried about being unemployed
Basically back in early 2016, I bought some second hand Radeon 7970s and r9 280x and been mining ETH since it pretty much launched. Back then you basically made like 1 ETH per GPU per day. Back then a 280x mined at like 27MH/s since the DAG was very small. Even my R9 270X mined at like 20MH/s. I kept all this ETH, along with the free ETC, sold all of my ETH/ETC when it peaked at $400 last Summer and went all in BTC. BTC went 5x since that time. Also got the free bitcoin forks. I kept cashing out a small amount with bitcoin ATMs and basically quit my job since it wasn't worth the hassle. Now I want to buy a house but I am worried about sending $1,000,000 to an exchange like Gemini/Coinbase/Kraken/Bitstamp and have them freeze this BTC. I am worried they will ask for employment papers and I've been unemployed since 2016. All this money was made legally. However since I mined to an exchange instead of my personal ETH wallet, I might not be able to provide a signed message proving I am the one who mined those coins. Since all the coins were mined directly to my Poloniex account. I do have receipts for some RX 470s that I bought last year and wondering if its sufficent. Do I need to take photos of my mining rigs and show it to my exchange as proof? I know I can buy USDT tether but I am worried that its not really backed by anything. I also don't know if any of the Bitcoin Future Options will be sufficient since they might carry crazy premiums for the puts. Wondering if people had issues withdrawing large amounts.
I could use some help/suggestions finding upgrades for my current rig (MOBO, GPU, and CPU)
I build my desktop back in 2012 and it's got a fair amount of hours on it at this point. I'm not having "performance issues" exactly, but I am noticing a few slow down points that seem abnormal. For example if I've got a torrent or steam download running and say 7 chrome tabs response time begins to diminish. I've done a fair amount of troubleshooting to see if I can clean things up (defrag, disk clean up, virus scans, reformat drives, re-image primary drive which is SSD, etc.) and i'm still having some issues. So I'm looking to bite the bullet so to speak and upgrade...thought without breaking the back. I don't have a hard price limit, but I'm not looking to spend $1500 to upgrade. Components I'm looking to upgrade
The Mobo and CPu were bought knew in 2012, the Radeon R9's I boght used from a friend 2-3 years ago. He only used them for bitcoin mining and had less than 100 hours on them.....I know this is my biggest limitation so this is number #1 on my upgrade list. Other components in Rig
My fiancee is the reason I'm on the doge boards-he saw Doge while reading about mining bitcoin and has now become obsessed. It's the topic of every conversation in our household...so I gave him the gift of doge for Valentine's day! He is now set up with 2 PowerColor Radeon R9 270X Devil Graphics Cards and a Corsair 760watt Platinum Power Supply. To the moon!! http://imgur.com/Wi1Uq0B http://imgur.com/eeZ32Nh
My friends and I are thinking of building a mining rig consisting of two GIGABYTE Radeon r9 270x in crossfire with 4gb ram each card. two main questions: 1) would it be worth it at all; would it turn a reasonable profit. 2) Does that Cards' ram matter? /BitcoinMining/BitcoinBeginners
Any risks with second-hand GPUs formerly used for bitcoin mining?
Hello everyone, I'm considering upgrading my GPU to an AMD Radeon R9. With my budget it can be either a 4GB 270X or a 3GB 280. However, I have seen some 3GB 280X cards for 30% less than the ones above. The problem is that they have been used for over an year for bitcoin mining rigs. Technically they'd still be in warranty (have to check how that warranty transfers in resale), but I'm concerned that the stress from bitcoin mining might not make them worth the savings. What do you guys think?
Im kind of new to all this stuff, few questions for you guys
Ok so i have a Radeon R9 270x GPU and I plan on GPU mining. Im kinda just starting out of nowhere so I don't have much background in any of this stuff. All i really know is I need a cgminer, a wallet, a pool, and a worker(miner). I'm just not sure about a few things: -How will medium/high intensity mining affect my graphics card? --What is an average intensity setting using the miner?(between 8-20) ---What will happen to my GPU if I go too high? -If anyone else out there has a Radeon R9 270x, what settings do you use in your miner?(intensity, temp, all the good stuff) -How do mining pools work? --Are some more or less profitable than others? -Does it take more power to mine currency than it does to play games? --How much is the average electricity cost?(500watt i think) ---If I want to add a Radeon R9 280x GPU to my computer would I need a higher wattage? -Would it be better to change what I mine everyday to match the most profitable currency of said day or to mine one type of coin and wait for the price to go up? --If I mine one specific coin should I mine an unpopular one and wait for it to go up or a slightly popular one or......any personal favorites you might want to share? ---I've only tried mining once with cgminer once, but if I do end up switching currencies everyday can cgminer mine most/all of them? ----How do i get actual money out of each different coin, do I have to convert them all to bitcoins, should I trade them, and whats the best option? -How does block difficulty come into play and how does it change between coins, what else does it effect. Etc.? [I know this is a lot of questions, but all opinions and answers are much appreciated] [Please comment if you would like me to number the questions] [I might edit in more questions, will mark those seperately]
I don't want to make so many dogecoins a day that I could live off of them, just a few every here and there. I am running a custom built computer and would like to do gpu mining, which I've tried but couldn't do because I'm not the smartest cookie with this mining stuff. I have a radeon r9 270x gpu and I am running 3 monitors. If I were to configure and start mining while I am either at school or work would my computer be capable? I am also running a 650 watt gold power supply. Would it also be possible to mine while I am doing small tasks on my computer, like watching videos or facebooking? Edit - Seeing as I'm in school, I'm quite young (highschool). I was working 2 jobs and took 3 paychecks for this computer, even with boxing day sales (Canadian). If I wanted to/needed to get some additional setups for mining bitcoins, litecoins, dogecoins etc.. (mainly doge) what is a more affordable but fast gpu? (Thinking about $175-$250 or $300 range) I work at mcdonalds until I get my other job back, since I was working seasonal there. I work for 13 hours a week so that's roughly $245 per paycheck.
ALL ABOUT THE R9 270 and X for Litecoin Mining So I am going to go into a lot of detail on some excellent ideas for why YOU should consider the R9 270 line of cards and some tweaks that have gotten my KH to Watts to a very decent level and some of the benefits of building with this line. Actually, the HD 7870 is practically the same thing. AMD rebranded the R9 270x and added some software that would supposedly help in games. If you would like to get similar performance at a lower price, you can get the R9 270. The R9 270x is basically a overclocked R9 270, but most R9 270x -es have better cooling systems from Manufactuers. Starting with the Radeon R7 260X, which pushes out just 220Mhps, with the next GPU in the lineup, the Radeon R9 270X which increases the mining ability to 400Mhps. AMD Radeon R9 270X - 16MH/s Ethereum mining. Combine multiple GPUs and build your own mining computer / farm. Check out the profitability from using this GPU to mine at present hashrates. Basically back in early 2016, I bought some second hand Radeon 7970s and r9 280x and been mining ETH since it pretty much launched. Back then you basically made like 1 ETH per GPU per day. Back then a 280x mined at like 27MH/s since the DAG was very small. Even my R9 270X mined at like 20MH/s.
