hi everyone.
I would like to build my first personal mining rig,but it is correct to build it now?
I would start it with 3 r7 370.The power cost aren't a problem and i would like to know what is the best (and maybe cheapest) card to start mining.

im new in this field but im very interested.Thanks to everyone for availability :smiley:

    Whatever card you can find for cheap! The only way you can possibly make any money right now is to get a really good deal on used cards. You won't make your money back if you buy new cards. As simple as that. There is a lot of information on different card's hashrates on the internet. Used 2xx series are probably your best bet if you can find some.

    I found 16 290x's for $2200 about a month ago. With a deal that good, I can't lose.
