EVGA GTX 760 Mining hash rate? x11 - EVGA Forums

Bitcoin mining question?

So rn I'm using my RX 5700 XT for fun to mine. It's actually pretty cool. But my question is if I order a 10 gpu mining case Can I mix my old gpus in it and have a go? I have GTX 980 GTX 970 GTX 760 RX 580 RX 570 Radeopn hd 7880 or something like that R7 360 And two unkown gpus
Could I mix those all into one case and mine Bitcoin for the fun of it?

How do I mine Dogecoin?

How do I mine Dogecoin?
Let’s take a lucky guess that you’re here today because you’ve heard a lot about cryptocurrencies and you want to get involved, right? If you’re a community person, Dogecoin mining might be the perfect start for you!
Bitcoin was the first in 2009, and now there are hundreds of cryptocurrencies. These new coins (that operate on their own native blockchain) are called altcoins or alternative coins. One popular altcoin is Dogecoin. It can be bought, sold and traded, just like Bitcoin. It can also be mined!
So, what is Dogecoin mining?
You’ll know what hardware and what software you need to get started. You’ll also know whether or not Dogecoin mining is for you!
So, where would you like to start? The beginning? Great choice. Let’s have a quick look at how Dogecoin got started.
A (Very) Short History of Dogecoin
In 2013, an Australian named Jackson Palmer and an American named Billy Markus became friends. They became friends because they both liked cryptocurrencies. However, they also thought the whole thing was getting too serious so they decided to create their own.
Palmer and Markus wanted their coin to be more fun and more friendly than other crypto coins. They wanted people who wouldn’t normally care about crypto to get involved.
They decided to use a popular meme as their mascot — a Shiba Inu dog.

Dogecoin was launched on December 6th, 2013. Since then it has become popular because it’s playful and good-natured. Just like its mascot!
Dogecoin has become well-known for its use in charitable acts and online tipping. In 2014, $50,000 worth of Dogecoin was donated to the Jamaican Bobsled Team so they could go to the Olympics. Dogecoin has also been used to build wells in Kenya. Isn’t that awesome!
Users of social platforms – like Reddit – can use Dogecoin to tip or reward each other for posting good content.
Dogecoin has the 27th largest market cap of any cryptocurrency.
Note: A market cap (or market capitalization) is the total value of all coins on the market.
So, Dogecoin is a popular altcoin, known for being fun, friendly and kind. It’s a coin with a dog on it! You love it already, don’t you?
Next, I want to talk about how mining works…
What is Mining?
To understand mining, you first need to understand how cryptocurrencies work. Cryptocurrencies are peer-to-peer digital currencies. This means that they allow money to be transferred from one person to another without using a bank.
Every cryptocurrency transaction is recorded on a huge digital database called a blockchain. The database is stored across thousands of computers called nodes. Nodes put together groups of new transactions and add them to the blockchain. These groups are called blocks.
Each block of transactions has to be checked by all the nodes on the network before being added to the blockchain. If nodes didn’t check transactions, people could pretend that they have more money than they really do (I know I would!).
Confirming transactions (mining) requires a lot of computer power and electricity so it’s quite expensive.
Blockchains don’t have paid employees like banks, so they offer a reward to users who confirm transactions. The reward for confirming new transactions is new cryptocurrency. The process of being rewarded with new currency for confirming transactions is what we call “mining”!

https://preview.redd.it/rcut2jx3iil31.png?width=598&format=png&auto=webp&s=8d78d41c764f4fe4e6386da4f40a66556a873b87
It is called mining because it’s a bit like digging for gold or diamonds. Instead of digging with a shovel for gold, you’re digging with your computer for crypto coins!
Each cryptocurrency has its own blockchain. Different ways of mining new currency are used by different coins where different rewards are offered.
So, how do you mine Dogecoin? What’s special about Dogecoin mining? Let’s see…
What is Dogecoin Mining?
Dogecoin mining is the process of being rewarded with new Dogecoin for checking transactions on the Dogecoin blockchain. Simple, right? Well no, it’s not quite that simple, nothing ever is!
Mining Dogecoin is like a lottery. To play the lottery you have to do some work. Well, actually your computer (or node) has to do some work! This work involves the confirming and checking of transactions which I talked about in the last section.
Lots of computers work on the same block of transactions at the same time but the only one can win the reward of new coins. The one that earns the new coins is the node that adds the new block of transactions to the old block of transactions. This is completed using complex mathematical equations.
The node that solves the mathematical problem first wins! It can then attach the newly confirmed block of transactions to the rest of the blockchain.
Most cryptocurrency mining happens this way. However, Dogecoin mining differs from other coins in several important areas. These areas are;
  • Algorithm: Each cryptocurrency has a set of rules for mining new currency. These rules are called a mining or hashing algorithm.
  • Block Time: This is the average length of time it takes for a new block of transactions to be checked and added to the blockchain.
  • Difficulty: This is a number that represents how hard it is to mine each new block of currency. You can use the difficulty number to work out how likely you are to win the mining lottery. Mining difficulty can go up or down depending on how many miners there are. The difficulty is also adjusted by the coin’s protocol to make sure that the block time stays the same.
  • Reward: This is the amount of new currency that is awarded to the miner of each new block.
Now, let’s compare how DogeCoin mining works compared to Litecoin and Bitcoin…
Mining Comparison
Bitcoin uses SHA-256 to guide the mining of new currency and the other two use Scrypt. This is an important difference because Scrypt mining needs a lot less power and is a lot quicker than SHA-256. This makes mining easier for miners with less powerful computers. Fans of Litecoin and Dogecoin think that they are fairer than Bitcoin because more people can mine them.
Note: In 2014, Litecoin and Dogecoin merged mining. This means they made it possible to mine both coins in the same process. Dogecoin mining is now linked with Litecoin mining. It’s like two different football teams playing home games in the same stadium!
Mining Dogecoin is a lot faster than mining Litecoin or Bitcoin. The block reward is much higher too!
Don’t get too excited though (sorry!). Dogecoin is still worth a lot less than Bitcoin and Litecoin. A reward of ten thousand Dogecoin is worth less than thirty US Dollars. A reward of 12.5 Bitcoin is currently worth 86,391.63 US Dollars!
However, it’s not as bad as it sounds. Dogecoin mining difficulty is more than one million times less than Bitcoin mining difficulty. This means you are much more likely to win the block reward when you mine Dogecoin.
Now I’ve told you about what Dogecoin mining is and how it works, would you like to give it a try?
Let’s see what you need to do to become a Dogecoin miner…
How to Mine Dogecoin
There are two ways to mine Dogecoin, solo (by yourself) or in a Dogecoin mining pool.
Note: A Dogecoin pool is a group of users who share their computing power to increase the odds of winning the race to confirm transactions. When one of the nodes in a pool confirms a transaction, it divides the reward between the users of the pool equally.
Dogecoin Mining: Solo vs Pool
When you mine as a part of a Dogecoin pool, you have to pay fees. Also, when the pool mines a block you will only receive a small portion of the total reward. However, pools mine blocks much more often than solo miners. So, your chance of earning a reward (even though it is shared) is increased. This can provide you with a steady new supply of Dogecoin.
If you choose to mine solo then you risk waiting a long time to confirm a transaction because there is a lot of competition. It could be weeks or even months before you mine your first block! However, when you do win, the whole reward will be yours. You won’t have to share it or pay any fees.
As a beginner, I would recommend joining a Dogecoin pool. This way you won’t have to wait as long to mine your first block of new currency. You’ll also feel like you’re part of the community and that’s what Dogecoin is all about!
What You Need To Start Mining Dogecoin
Before you start Dogecoin mining, you’ll need a few basics. They are;
  • A PC with either Windows, OS X or Linux operating system.
  • An internet connection
  • A Shiba Inu puppy (just kidding!)
You’ll also need somewhere to keep the Dogecoin you mine. Go to Dogecoin’s homepage and download a wallet.
Note: A wallet is like an email account. It has a public address for sending/receiving Dogecoin and a private key to access them. Your private keys are like your email’s password. Private keys are very important and need to be kept completely secure.
There are two different types; a light wallet and a full wallet. To mine Dogecoin, you’ll need the full wallet. It’s called Dogecoin Core.
Now that you’ve got a wallet, you need some software and hardware.
Dogecoin Mining Hardware
You can mine Dogecoin with;
  • Your PC’s CPU: The CPU in your PC is probably powerful enough to mine Dogecoin. However, it is not recommended. Mining can cause less powerful computers to overheat which causes damage.
  • A GPU: GPUs (or graphics cards) are used to improve computer graphics but they can also be used to mine Dogecoin. There are plenty of GPUs to choose from but here are a few to get you started;SAPPHIRE Pulse Radeon RX 580 ($426.98)Nvidia GeForce GTX ($579.99)ASUS RX Vega 64 ($944.90)
  • A Scrypt ASIC Miner: This is a piece of hardware designed to do one job only. Scrypt ASIC miners are programmed to mine scrypt based currencies like Litecoin and Dogecoin. ASIC miners are very powerful. They are also very expensive, very loud and can get very hot! Here’s a few for you to check out;Innosilicon A2 Terminator ($760)Bitmain Antminer L3 ($1,649)BW L21 Scrypt Miner ($7,700)
Dogecoin Mining Software
Whether you’re mining with an ASIC, a GPU or a CPU, you’ll need some software to go with it. You should try to use the software that works best with the hardware you’re using. Here’s a short list of the best free software for each choice of mining hardware;
  • CPU: If you just want to give mining a quick try, using your computer’s CPU will work fine. The only software I would recommend for mining using a CPU only is CPU miner which you can download for free here.
  • GPU: If you mine with a GPU there are more software options. Here are a few to check out;CudaMiner– Works best with Nvidia products.CGminer– Works with most GPU hardware.EasyMiner– User-friendly, so it’s good for beginners.
  • Scrypt ASIC miner:MultiMiner– Great for mining scrypt based currencies like Litecoin and Dogecoin. It can also be used to mine SHA-256 currencies like Bitcoin.CGminer and EasyMiner can also be used with ASIC miners.
Recommendations
You’re a beginner, so keep it simple! When you first start mining Dogecoin I would recommend using a GPU like the Radeon RX 580 with EasyMiner software. Then I would recommend joining a Dogecoin mining pool. The best pools to join are multi-currency pools like Multipool or AikaPool.
If you want to mine Dogecoin but don’t want to invest in all the tech, there is one other option…
Dogecoin Cloud Mining
Cloud mining is mining without mining! Put simply, you rent computer power from a huge data center for a monthly or yearly fee. The Dogecoin is mined at the center and then your share is sent to you.
All you need to cloud mine Dogecoin is a Dogecoin wallet. Then choose a cloud mining pool to join. Eobot, Nice Hash and Genesis Mining all offer Scrypt-based cloud mining for a monthly fee.
There are pros and cons to Dogecoin cloud mining;
The Pros
  • It’s cheaper than setting up your own mining operation. There’s also no hot, noisy hardware lying around the house!
  • As a beginner, there isn’t a lot of technical stuff to think about.
  • You get a steady supply of new currency every month.
The Cons
  • Cloud mining pools don’t share much information about themselves and how they work. It can be hard to work out if a cloud mining contract is a good value for money.
  • You are only renting computer power. If the price of Dogecoin goes down, you will still have to pay the same amount for something that is worthless.
  • Dogecoin pools have fixed contracts. The world of crypto can change very quickly. You could be stuck with an unprofitable contract for two years!
  • It’s no fun letting someone else do the mining for you!
Now you know about all the different ways to mine Dogecoin we can ask the big question, can you make tons of money mining Dogecoin?
So, Is Dogecoin Mining Profitable?
The short answer is, not really. Dogecoin mining is not going to make you a crypto billionaire overnight. One Dogecoin is worth 0.002777 US Dollars. If you choose to mine Dogecoin solo, it will be difficult to make a profit. You will probably spend more money on electricity and hardware than you will make from Dogecoin mining. Even if you choose a Dogecoin pool or a cloud pool your profits will be small.
However, if you think I am telling you to not mine Dogecoin, then you’re WRONG! Of course, I think you should mine Dogecoin!
But why? Seriously…
Well, you should mine Dogecoin because it’s fun and you want to be a part of the Dogecoin family. Cryptocurrency is going to change the world and you want to be part of that change, right? Mining Dogecoin is a great way to get involved.
Dogecoin is the coin that puts a smile on people’s faces. By mining Dogecoin you’ll be supporting all the good work its community does. You’ll learn about mining from the friendliest gang in crypto. And who knows? In a few years, the Dogecoin you mine now could be worth thousands or even millions! In 2010, Bitcoin was worthless. Think about that!
Only you can choose whether to mine Dogecoin or not. You now know everything you need to know to make your choice. The future is here. So, what are you going to do?

Graphics Card Value For Money - £400 limit

Hey there guys,
I built my first PC a while back (about 4 yrs) and I skimped on the graphics card because I was mainly using it for photoshop stuff etc, and was doing very little rendering and very little high-end gaming.
My current build is as follows:
PCU: Intel Core i7 4770
Mother Board: ASUSTeK Z87-C
RAM: 16GB DDR3
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB
At the time it was about a £1300 build, but obviously that graphics card is pretty damn out of date. Tbh it was out of date in 2013, but like I say, I had to make savings somewhere.
I have done a little bit of my own research, but tbh this stuff isn't really my ballpark. I understand that right now is not a great time to be buying GPUs, since apparently bitcoin mining has shot the price up across the board, but tbh I don't have much of a choice, I really need to upgrade - I'm doing a lot more real time rendering (I work with Maya and KeyShot a lot atm), and my current GPU just isn't cutting the mustard.
So I was wondering what kind of thing people think I should be looking at? I've been considering the GTX 1060 6GB. It would certainly be a huge upgrade, but considering it isn't top end right now, I do wonder how future proof it would be, and which brand/ version is the best option.
My upper limit is about £400 (about 530 USD or 460 Euro), and I was wondering what my options are?

My friends told me that i would need 600w instead of 500w. In the wattage calculator on pcpartpicker it equates to 370w or so. I have no intention to upgrade, unless it's an extra fan. So, would i be better off with 500w instead of 600w or should i stay as it is? I'm really tight for money so even saving a tenner is great! :P
And is the UK affected by litecon/bitcoin/whatever mining with radeon 7950? I was gonna go with a 7950 but i've heard everyones bought up them all in america, i don't want this to happen in the uk.

Newb trying to get into EtherMining

Hello,
Long useless story below
So first of all i've heard about bitcoins about 5 years ago but i never considered trying to get myself into bitcoin mining or any altcoin mining, i did some search but i though it was simply not worth it, now after seeing that bitcoin is at 661USD i wish i had started at that time but now that bitcoin is mostly mined by people that have ASICs and i'm pretty sure i will never ever compete with my computer even though i have a pretty good computer, so i tried to look around to find an altcoin that is still relevant for GPU and CPU mining and i found that ethereum was probably the answer for me, i tried to follow this guide but it's entended for solomining and since i live in algeria and i have a download speed of 2Mbps only downloading all the chaindata could take me days and days for nothing, so i searched a bit more and i found that poolmining was probably the answer for me, so i tried to search guides for poolmining, and while searching for guides for poolmining i wanted to find a good wallet too, after a bit more search i found this subreddit so i searched in this subreddit any post with newb in it and most seem to be too old with messages like (a good wallet will be out in some weeks), but most of the good wallets seem to require you to sync with all the chainblocks, i would love to know what would you reccomend to me, taking into account my very limited internet speed.
TL;DR Version
I'm someone newly interrested in bitcoins/altcoins from algeria, and i figured out after 4/5hours of search that it's too late for bitcoin mining and that ethereum could be the best coin to mine with my pc.
I have an i5 3550 with a GTX 760 (2GB GDDR5) and 8GB of RAM and i have a very very slow download speed (2Mbps / 256KB/s maximum and around 50KB/s upload speed).
I have done some research and i found a guide that asked me to install gith, i also searched in this subreddit for some threads with "newb" in it but they were pretty old, i hope i'm not doing a double post.
While i was following the guide i created an account with gith but syncing with the blockchain was taking ages and using all my bandwith so i stopped it.
I want to ask you guys that are surely way more documented on this topic than me how could i setup my ethereum mining, what wallet could i use and if you have any guide that still works well with my case, so that i can still use my computer to play (i play a lot of videogames and mostly mmorpgs).
Anyways, thanks for reading !
EDIT: I also would like to know what do you think about this wallet : https://bit.ac

Mining Rig In the Works + Questions

So my buddy is going to tell me a pre-built bitcoin mining rig, and im trying to figure out what video card I want to get for it and trying not to spend all that much on it. He's pretty much giving me a setup valued at 650$ for half the cost.
Its got: iz77 MSI Board i3-3200 CPU 8gb of 1600mz ram liquid cooling, 600w psu Cooler Master XB case Nxzt Pump, Res and Radiator Heat Killer 3.0 CPU block and back plate
All i need is a video card, and he's throwing in a cheapie card, a AT radeon 4850 1gb. I want to spend at least 200 or so dollars on a video card and still be able to get good performance. my current computer i use for gaming and slightly for bitcoin mining, and it has a GTX 760 to mine with and i get 250Khash/s.
Another concern I have is power consumption, im worried it'll cost too much, more than what it's generating for me to mine. I get 17cents for the KwH where I am. Any help is apprecaited, for a frustrated and confused shibe!
EDIT Also..what can I do for a operating system? I can only have w7 on one pc no?

[Build Help] Upgrading GPU from GTS 250 to GTX970 vs. SLI GTX760's

I'm for a much-needed upgrade to my current GPU (GTS 250) and am faced with a conundrum.
I'm in Canada, and at the moment GPU prices are bananas. The cheapest GTX 970 would run me about 450$, and an R9 390 would be about 400$. I do however have the opportunity to purchase a pair of GTX 760's (the 2gb version) for approximately 200$. The rest of the build won't need any upgrading to support the 760's with SLI.
Now to the questions:
  1. I suspect the cards have been used for bitcoin (or variant) mining. Is this a huge issue?
  2. From the perspective of a 1080p gamer, would both options perform similarly? Or even close to each other? It's kind of hard to find any 760 SLI comparisons to modern GPU's.
  3. How would they fare at 1440 / 4k?

[Build Ready] Bitcoin mining and gaming PC

I'll be using this build mainly for gaming and mining Bitcoins. Also, if someone can come up with a name for this build, that'd be nice.

Windows 10 wakes up from sleep automatically for no known reason.

So, I've been using 10 since the pre-release insider previews with minimal issues (aside from usual blue screens whenever I am doing something important) until recently. During the past few months, my computer has, perhaps once a week tops, turns itself on when in sleep mode. However in the last two weeks, the issue has gotten MUCH worse. I have not installed any updates during this period, nor has Windows pissed me off by restarting to install any automatically without my permission. In the past, I have disabled wake over LAN, I have removed the ability for my mouse and keyboard to wake the computer, both in the OS and in my BIOS, going as far as completely unplugging them. None of this has changed anything. Now it wakes up EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. Without fail, the computer will wake itself up at 6:55, 7:55, 8:55, and 9:55 PM, give or take 5 minutes. I can pull up an elevated command prompt to execute powercfg -lastwake and it says "unknown source", or "0 wake sources". I open up event viewer, go under the system event logs and filter for the "Power Troubleshooter" category to see all of the waking events. I see my USB controller whenever I interact with the mouse or keyboard, but every day while I'm doing homework on my laptop, the computer just wakes up, leaving an "Unknown Wake Source" event each time. I have checked so many times to see if I have any wake timers enabled, which I don't. My bitcoin mining client (back when it was profitable) and my Folding at Home client were able to interfere with the computer going to sleep, but I have since completely uninstalled them and all of their dependencies to little effect. If anyone has any suggestions, please put them forth. I have been digging for a few weeks now to try and find other people with similar problems, but they have all been related to wake timers or peripherals triggering the wakeup. Even unplugging all of my peripherals (ALL of them. Just a power cord and monitor hookups plugged in), has yielded no results.
Just to clarify the specs of my system, here we go. (go easy on me, I'm rebuilding before I move into college.) CPU: Core i5-3570k OC'd at 4.6 GHz GPU: (EVGA) Nvidia GTX 760 (FTW ed.) - I haven't updated the drivers in a month, so the problem isn't related. OS: Windows 10 Home (insider) Version 1607, build 14393.953, 64 bit Other: 16gb of RAM, 3 monitors in a triple-wide setup.
EDIT: Yes, I've already scanned with Windows Defender and Malwarebytes in Chameleon mode and I've come up with nothing.

A noob question about bitcoin mining

I started bitcoin mining with my GTX 760 using slushpool and guiminer. I downloaded the bitcoin wallet. What do I do to get the bitcoins from the bitcoin directory to my wallet? Also, how do I view the codes for my bitcoin information? They are .dat files.

A turnabout: Dogecoin.

I've been into mining for about a week now, and I find it very fun and relaxing, I'm not really looking into it as a business, however an investment, yes, an investment of time which in return gives me drive to learn and study about what Dogecoin really is.
Like every other person in my age(27), work in day and night, SSDD, just pushing myself to work because i need it, then I read an article regarding the rise of bitcoin, and I was like i need to get in to this!.
At first I was like, "damn I need to build myself a mining rig, need to get into this cryptocurrency thing", then i started reading some forums about bitcoin, then read about Dogecoin which is on the rise, so I began changing parts of my old rig, well besically upgraded my gpu, from the green team's GTX 760, to the red team's R9 280x, when I've completed my mining rig, I began on reading on what I need to do next. Then DLed dogecoin wallet and set up CG miner for optimised mining, then a friend of mine told me to check Dogecoin's reddit.
When I checked this reddit community, everything changed, my perspective on Dogecoin changed, everyone was really helpful to one another, the articles posted by each shibes, unique, some gives me the feel trip, some are fun, but all in general are always positive, I am really happy to be part of this community, to share my time with you all.
So fellow shibes, let's keep this community the way it is up and running and full of positivity! everyday improving and full of life!

Need help getting into mining

So I'm really interested in doing mining part time to get some extra cash, and I've read a lot of guides but they make almost no sense to me about where to actually start. Also, do you guys think it would be more beneficial to mine Dccogecoin or Bitcoin? I've got a SuperClocked GTX 760 and a Core i5-4670K so I think I've got the specs to do it. I just need a simple really clear guide to get me pointed in the right direction on what I need to do and what software to use. Thanks in advance everyone!

Video card artifacting

Hello techsupport ( I hope I am posting this in the right place)
I'm having some issues with, what I thought was my video card, and can use your help.
So basically, I purchased a "iBUYPOWER SOURCE SERIES NE713i Desktop PC Intel Core i7 4770 (3.40GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Windows 8.1 64-Bit" last December, with these stats:
iBUYPOWER Model : SOURCE SERIES NE713i Processor :Intel Core i7-4770 3.4GHz (Max Turbo frequency 3.9GHz)
Windows 8.1
64 bit Quad-Core Processor Cache Per Processor 8MB L3 Cache

Hard Drive 1TB SATA III 7200RPM
Power Supply 500W
Operating System Windows 8.1 64-Bit
CPU CPU Type Intel Core i7
CPU Speed 4770 (3.40GHz)
L3 Cache Per CPU 8MB CPU Socket Type LGA 1150 CPU Main Features 64 bit Quad-Core Processor Max Turbo Frequency 3.9 GHz

Memory Memory Capacity 8GB DDR3 Memory Speed DDR3 1600 Memory Spec 4GB x 2
Maximum Memory Supported 16GB
Hard Drive HDD 1TB HDD Interface SATA III HDD RPM 7200rpm
After about a month, my screen started to artifact during certain (but not all) games. At the time, the game it happened during most was in beta, which is what I attributed the artifacting to, mainly because I had never seen it before. (game was infinite crisis).
The following months I noticed that the artifacting was getting worse, followed by errors stating " Nvidia card has stopped responding" , and then a black screen.
I called up Ibuypower and Nvidia, who both told me to replace my video card, which I did. Now I have a gtx 970, which lasted beautifully for a week, until this started happening again.
Now, the artifacting is happening not only in games, but also while my computer is just sitting on the desktop screen not doing anything. I will get little black squares all over my screen, and lines during games.
The card is getting to about 40-50c during games , around 37 c at rest.
All of my drivers are up to date. I checked for malware while in safe mode and found one virus, but nothing like the bitcoin mining trojan that I have heard caused this to some users in the past.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Also, I have a 500w power supply, and the card required a 500w minimum.

Decided on an $1100 PC vs a PS4. Would you mind critiquing my build?

Hey guys,
I have an updated PC build, that I'll be using for web development, graphic design, and gaming. I've never built or owned a desktop PC before (Other than my awesome Dell XPS 600 years ago)
I run a small marketing agency for a living (WordPress and Photoshop take up most of my day). In addition to that, I'm also looking for something I can game on, without breaking the bank.
Here are a few games I want to play:
I want a build that'll get through most of the games on that list on (for the most part) high/ultra settings, and deal with the new games that come out for the next few years.
Based off of what I'm looking for, are these parts overkill? I don't plan to be maxing out Crysis 3, but want something that can play my games well, and maybe mine some bitcoin.totally optional.
Thanks so much!

Additionally, I had three questions.
  1. Would a GTX 760, 770, or 780 be recommended?
  2. Do you think the power supply will be enough for this build?
  3. Would I need an additional HSU for this build? The case supports 7 fans.

[Build Help] Should I buy a used 280x for $180 or an Unused GTX 760 for $170?

Found a couple ads on craigslist. A few people are selling 280x's for the $180 price range. However, they were obviously used for bitcoin mining and are bit of a drive to get.
On the other hand, someone literally around the corner from me is selling a New-In-Box GTX 760 for $170.
Will I be getting that much of a better performance boost if I risk buying the used 280x?

So maybe I'm a pessimistic mining scrub, but.....

I'm kinda just now looking into the Bitcoin scene but I've been looking a lot into hardware, ROI, energy efficiency, difficulty, etc. Now I'm currently just running my already-owned nVidia GTX-760 right now (at a sad 80MH/s) and don't really expect to turn a profit, but if I ever wanted to make a profit, is it even feasible at this point in time with difficulty the way it is?
I just looked at a chart of difficulty scaling over the last few months on The Genesis Block and their future scaling prediction, and even with some of the new TH/s+ ASIC machines coming out it doesn't look like there is much to be made. Considering many of the most promising looking ones aren't shipping until Feb'14 to APR'14 and considering merely the starting difficulty at that point in time, some of them aren't even going to break even. Hell, even the most efficient ones only look to make 1000-5000$, then start losing money after 6 months. Which is OK I suppose.
I guess what I'm asking is: + Choice A) Do I simply play the markets in the time being, buying now before crazed miners get their slew of TH/s machines? + Choice B) Do I go ahead and make the considerable investment in an early-shipping TH/s machine of mine own? + Choice C) Do I go ahead and take a GH/s machine now hoping to turn a fast profit before difficulty skyrockets? + Choice D) Do I wait for the inevitable breakthrough to ASIC's with a smaller, more energy-efficient architecture? + Choice E) Do I just haz fun and go with the flow, mining for the sake of keeping the currency alive, even if it is a technical loss in USD? + Choice F) Do I need to factor in the assumed inflation of Bitcoin after difficulty spikes as well when factoring ROI and should I then grab anything I can get my hands on?
I mean, until ASIC's become more energy efficient It seems like turning a profit with them in the near future will be impossible regardless of how many TH/s you have, and that doesn't seem conducive to the continuation of this currency. Unless of course if Bitcoin itself, in response to dramatic difficulty increase, becomes MUCH more valuable than it is now. In which case are all hardcore miners simply banking on the hope that Bitcoin will increase in value another 25-50% next year and should I be as well?
