Nvidia GTX 1060 mining calculator ⛏️ minerstat

Modded witcher 3, blew up my graphics card (gtx 780, 6 months out of warranty). Anyone know what part this is that fell out from my 780 after much smoking (penny for scale)? Labeled 1R0 I think. What is the best current video card replacement during the bitcoin mining price spike?

This meme wave is really confusing.

The 3000 series is announced and so far it looks like a legit fantastic leap in performance.
That said people seem to either overly forgiving or completely ignoring the inflated prices.
the *70 has for the most part sat around $330~$350 and the *80 at $500 with few exceptions.
Then bitcoin mining ruined GPU prices and it looks like Nvidia wants to keep charging closer to the bitcoin days prices.
Yes now you have 2080ti performance for half the price which is great but nots not the only metric we should judge it by.
The GTX 970 matched the GTX 780 ti but it did it for $329. Hell I could even see a 3070 going for $400 but $500?
Then theres the sad part there is no Nvidia beating AMD memes because they've been out of the game so long its just Nvidia beating Nvidia lol.

Crypto Gui Miner - official thread and support

This is the official thread for support and development of CryptoGuiMiner! Please any suggest, criticize and praise.
I see that there are a lot of questions and different answers on forums on the subject of mining cryptocurrencies. So now… which cryptocurrency should you be mining and how? For beginners and people with no knowledge of cryptocurrencies, the biggest issue are the very basics like adjusting the settings which can be complicated and hard to figure out. If you want to start mining, it must be way more complicated than just a few clicks! Or is it? So you don’t have to bother, lose time or God forbid adjust something wrongly, there is an interesting piece of software that helps you and does everything automatically for you. I’m writing this because I myself am using this software and can confirm that it is definitely the best solution for everyone who is new in the world of cryptocurrency mining.
The program is called Crypto Gui Miner and it you can download it from https://cryptoguiminer.com/ (Crypto Gui Miner | Free Easy GPU Mining Software Application)
The main thing which makes this program so special and what sets it apart from the others is the simplicity and automatic set-up function. There is even a calculator on their website that will calculate which cryptocurrency is the most profitable to mine, depending on the graphics cards that you use.
When you run the program, it will automatically recognize the graphics cards that you are using and adjust the settings so that it mines the cryptocurrency that is the most profitable. You also have a nice and clear display of temperature and other useful data such as hashrates, estimated monthly earnings in US dollars or Bitcoin, monitoring for tracking results via mobile phone, etc. All you have to do is insert your wallet address so you can dafely save the currency you are mining directly into your wallet (and it is saved automatically). The best place for creating your wallet is the official website of the cryptocurrency that you wish to start mining. Of course, you always have control over what and when you will be mining.
You can also enter more than one wallet into the program, so the program will mine the currency that is the most profitable at that time. However, if you only wish to mine one cryptocurrency, then just click on the button “Force” and the chosen cryptocurrency will be mined regardless of the others.
In short, don’t focus on mining Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum or other currencies that are difficult to mine and you need hardware of 100+ thousands of EUR. Focus on currencies that can quickly be mined and monetized, converted into cash or for buying other cryptocurrrencies or if you plan to invest them in the long run. Just download the program, choose one or more currencies for mining, insert your wallet and that is it. No complicated settings, losing time, uncertainties etc.

What do you guys do with old GPUs?

I'm about to upgrade for the first time since I ascended and can't figure out what to do with my card. It's an EVGA 780 GTX, never overclocked, no problems, still runs almost everything at max settings but I need a bit more power for VR.
From what I've seen, I could maybe get about $140 for it by listing for sale on Amazon or take slightly less money from http://www.sellgpu.com. ($88)
However, I've seen people talk about using their old cards for mining. I'm assuming this means bitcoins, would a card like mine actually be profitable for this?
Do you guys usually sell old cards or re purpose them?

My first days as a new Shibe

I've been researching this cryptocurrency thing for a while; bitcoins, litecoins, dogecoins and others. But I have to say that the community around dogecoin is what brought me here. I've enjoyed my first few days of reading and getting my GTX 780 (dont laugh ;) ) mining. Obviously I didnt buy a GTX 780 for the purpose of mining, but rather for pretty heavy gaming on my multimonitor gaming PC. But hey, if I can mine and enjoy the community, why not?
Wow. So new. Such love. Many thanks. Much friends.

Is mining even worth it

So I have a spare GPU that I replaced in my gaming rig (a GTX 780 for those of you who are interested in computers) and I'm considering using it as a dedicated bitcoin mining card. Is this worth my time? In the event that it is, what is my expected yield?

Should I start mining?

In November 2013 I built a computer with a GTX 780 and i7 4770k. Since then I've used it heavily for web browsing and League of Legends but nothing very intense very often. Somebody offered to purchase this computer (I am building a new one soon) for $600 or maybe a little more. However, I was also considering mining bitcoins 24/7 on it, as I do not have to pay for electricity in a dorm room.
What do y'all think?

Try this with a potatobox...one gaming PC, three rooms.

I'm sure I'm not the only person who games in more than one room, but there's no way I could afford a high end rig at every spot. So I figured why not put all my cash into one mega rig and have it serve double duty....scratch that, triple duty! I'm also into AV/Home theater and hate input lag, so steam streaming isn't gonna cut it.
http://i.imgur.com/bhZQT6z.jpg
The PC lives in the office...this is where the mouse/kb gaming happens. PC speakers aren't going to cut it, so I've got a receiver feeding two pioneer bookshelves and a sub under the desk. From here, I run a 75ft HDMI cable, ethernet cable, and USB cable down to the basement.
http://i.imgur.com/m6BmG7c.jpg
In the basement I've got a full dedicated theater...96" screen, 1080p projector, 5.1 paradigm studio speakers powered by an anthem mrx300, and a completely ridiculous 2000W 18" velodyne sub right behind the leather couch. No need to worry about a loud PC making a lot of noise, because it's on the other side of the house! The USB cable feeds into a hub, where I attach all the wireless receivers for controllers, bluetooth, etc. I usually use a dual shock 4 for gaming down here. Before I feed the HDMI into the receiver, I use a splitter to send another 30ft HDMI upstairs. The ethernet plugs into a switch to feed all the consoles and other gear, and I run another cat6 up to the living room as well...everything is hardwired.
http://i.imgur.com/Ta3T0ZJ.jpg
Up in the living room I've got a 60" panasonic ST30 plasma and a pioneer soundbar for some "casual" gaming. I ended up not needing to run another USB hub for the controller because the dual shock 4 runs perfectly fine wirelessly through the floor. The best part? It barely works with the PS4 sitting in the same rack as the BT adapter...ain't that a B.
You'd think all of this would be a PITA to manage, but all you literally have to do is turn the receiver or the TV to the PC's HDMI input, and it automatically switches everything. Otherwise, it's outputting to the monitospeakers in the office by default.
There's absolutely no way you could do this with a console - for one, you'd never be able to extend the range of the controller. God forbid you needed to put in a disc, you'd need to run around the house. And although you can probably make it work with enough HDMI splitters, the dual video output makes things super easy. Why spend $1200 on three PS4s when you can spend it on a few GTX 780's that you can actually use wherever you are? It's not nearly as hard as it sounds, and it saves a TON of money to consolidate everything into one system instead of spreading your gear thin across a few. Even if you don't want to get as crazy as me with the wiring, steam home streaming does work pretty well on super cheap PCs.
And to top it all off, when the PC is idle, it mines bitcoin...because why not?
Console cheaper than PC....pfft.

Hello Shibes, I'm a new Doge!

Hey all, after being into BitCoin for the last 18 months or so, I've decided to dump all that and join the fun that is Dogecoin! I'm just moving my bitcoins over to Doge, and hope to join in the tipping soon!
Just lurking in /dogecoin has been awesome, and it looks like this currency has a fantastic community that I'd like to be a part of!
I'm using a GTX 780 and a GTX 650 Ti Boost, and getting something like 750 khash/s combined. Very mining, much happy! Best part is, I can't get my old Radeon 6670 to mine at all.. ha ha ha.
Anyway, that's it, just wanted to say hi!
Happy Doge-ing!

Which of these options would you suggest for my upcoming GPU upgrade?

Okay so I am planning to upgrade my graphics card, but would like some suggestions on how exactly to do it. Here are my current system specs:
AMD FX-8350 @4.3GHz MSI Twin Frozr Radeon HD 7950 @1100MHz core and 1250MHz memory 1000W Coolmax PSU (yes, I know it’s a crap brand, but I’ve actually run 3 GPUs on it before, during my bitcoin mining days, so I know it can take a heavy load) MSI 890FXA-GD70 Motherboard 18 GB DDR3 RAM @1600MHz (yes, I know it’s a weird amount and I know it would be slightly faster if I took out the mismatched sets, but I would rather have the extra space than the slight speed boost)
Here are the options I’m considering: 1. A new Nvidia GTX 970 – Total cost: ~$350. Advantages: latest-generation card with “4GB” of memory (even 3.5GB is still more than 3GB), latest and greatest features. Disadvantages: Possibly not fully compatible with DX12 (not 100% sure on this, but it’s something I’ve heard) 2. A new Nvidia GTX 780 Ti – Total cost: ~$420. Advantages: most powerful single-card setup I can afford. Disadvantages: older card means fewer features, only 3GB memory compared to the 3.5/4 on the 970, probably not fully compatible with DX12 (again, only something I’ve heard) 3. A second (used) Radeon HD 7950 – Total cost: ~$120. Advantages: very affordable, should be very good performance in games that have good crossfire support, supposedly will have full DX12 support (again, a rumor). Disadvantages: older card means fewer features, stuck with 3GB VRAM, games/applications that do not support crossfire well will see little to no improvement, buying a used card is a little risky 4. Two more (used) Radeon HD 7950s – Total cost: ~$240. Advantages: significantly more raw computational power than even a 780 ti, at a much lower cost. Disadvantages: same as one additional 7950 (except buying two used cards is even riskier) 5. A new R9 280 (to be used in crossfire with my 7950) – Total cost: ~$170. Advantages: quite affordable, should be very good performance in games that have good crossfire support, supposedly will have full DX12 support (again, a rumor). Disadvantages: stuck with 3GB VRAM, games/applications that do not support crossfire well will see little to no improvement, won’t match my current card asthetically (not a big deal) 6. Two new R9 280s (to be used in crossfire with my 7950) – Total cost: $340. Advantages: significantly more raw computational power than even a 780 ti, at a significantly lower cost. Disadvantages: same as one new R9 280 So those are the options. I am willing to spend as much as the 780 ti if it is worthwhile, but would (of course) prefer to spend less if a cheaper solution makes more sense. Something like a 980 or two 970s, though, is out of the question. I just can’t justify spending that much right now.
Let me know what you think and if there are any advantages/disadvantages that I didn’t think of, and thanks for the help! And of course, feel free to ask if there's any other info that would be helpful!

ASIC Mining (Too Good To Be True?)

This is my first Reddit post (I've heard great things about the community from friends, so decided to give it a shot)
I've recently started messing around with mining Litecoins with my GPU (GTX 780) since I don't pay for electricity in my apartment and just wanted to get a sense of what mining is. I've also researched different asic miners and found a site that shows a cost-benefit analysis among different hardware on the market. (http://minr.info/) I understand that the revenues you make from mining can fluctuate based on the spot rates of bitcoin (without taking anything else into account) So, let's assume the exchange rate to USD will stay constant for a month starting from today. Why wouldn't someone want to invest in a $6,000 unit that can supposedly return $1,000 a day in revenues? Can someone please help me better understand the detailed and bigger picture of mining before I decide to purchase one of these units. (I'm also aware that a lot of them are backordered and the premiums are high to buy one on the secondary market.) Thanks!

Need help deciding between an AMD or Nvidia GPU.

I can't decide if I want either a GTX 770/780 or a Radeon R9 280x/290.
The only reason I can't decide is because I've herd that Mantle is coming out for AMD which will make Radeon cards better than Nvidias' (I think). Plus I herd that Radeon cards are a LOT more expensive than they used to be because of BitcoinMining. So are they still worth their the price?
I really need your guys' help because this is the last piece I need to finish my computer.

[Discussion] Coin Mining & Maxwell 800 Series Prices

With the release of the GTX 750 and 750 Ti we have our first look at the Maxwell architecture and how it performs. But like many others I was worried to see that these cards are actually very good for mining Litecoin, Dogecoin etc. They draw very little power and don't generate as much heat as AMD cards, even now in February Newegg can't keep AMD cards in stock and are selling them way above MSRP. This is not just a Newegg problem but now AMD cards seem to be worth their weight in gold. Nvidia is now taken the budget crown and buying a GTX 770/780/780 Ti is actually cheaper and faster than getting an AMD card equivalent.
Are the days of cheap graphics cards a thing of the past? Also will we see Crypto-miners move over to Nvidia once the 800 series is launched? Will GPU based mining ever become non-profitable like it did when the Bitcoin craze died down?

New to mining, need some advice

Hey guys, I've been following Bitcoin for a while now and have finally decided to get into it. I have set up a Bitcoin wallet using Bitcoin-Qt, and am now interested in mining. I will be mining with an nVidia GTX780. I know that mining with a graphics card is no longer a viable option for profit (especially using an nVida card) and that most miners are using specialized dedicated hardware, however I am not concerned about this because:
  1. I am doing this to learn about mining, not to earn money.
  2. In my current setup I am not paying for electricity/internet/hardware/etc. Technically a single µBitcoin would be a profit for me, but again I am treating this more as a learning experiance.
  3. I do not wish to spend any money on hardware upgrades at this time.
Current Specs:
I have several questions on how to best utilize my setup. I want to be able to mine efficiently, yet at the same time I would like to use my computer for other things. To that end:
  1. Is it possible to pause a mining operation in order to do something else, and then resume it at a later time without losing data?
  2. Would it be better to solo mine or pool mine? I am guessing that pool mining will be better in the long run, but would it hurt to solo mine for now?
  3. What is the best mining tool for me? I currently have GUIMiner, but I have seen a few other tools as well.
  4. OpenCL vs CUDA. what's the differance between the two?
Hopefully someone can assist me in this. Sorry if some of my questions are a bit n00bish, but I feel like I am drowning in a wealth of information and I don't know what is relevant or not to my needs.

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.

I'm throwing a few things at an old box and putting it back to work. Will the PSU survive and is it worth doing a little mining on the side.

Hello. I built my last computer, the box in question, in 2008 and retired it in 2011 when I put together my current one. I'm about to drop in and mirror two, 3TB WD Greens (WD30EZRX) and if possible, a token HD5450. Essentially I'm after more storage but I thought while I'm at it I might as well put the rest of the computer to work and try out a bit of mining. If I can, with the additional shitty video card. However, I don't know what the PSU will allow me to do.
So, a few scenarios. *CPU and both video cards mining flat chat. Only the two video cards at it. CPU and one (which?) video card mining. Which of these scenarios are an option?
*Can I let the CPU mine while I need the HDDs operable at all times? Can I limit how much the CPU gets taxed by the mining or not utilise all of its cores, in order to adequately service the HDDs at the same time? Could I get any more out of these options if I underclock any of the three elements?
I'm guessing you only need to know a few of the significant specs for the question. It's power-intensive make-up right this moment consists of a Q9450, a 9800GTX, a 32GB OCZ SSD and a, maybe Seagate, 500GB HDD. The PSU is an ENERMAX ELT620AWT, i.e. 620W and "80 plus" certified.
I should also ask, is it worthwhile mining bitcoins at all with this stuff? It goes without saying, it's a shitbox. What kind of figures could I expect from each video card and the CPU? How efficient are CPUs versus video cards in general?
Thanks for reading and for any input you can offer.
PS Do we still need to change the head-resting, idle time or whatever it was, on the Green drives? I remember that being a big concern with the initial line of the 2TBs.

Would you mind critiquing my $1100 Gaming PC 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!
