what are the best GPUs to "start" a mining PC build ?

Doesn't matter. All the good ones are out of stock and will be for a looong time unless you get lucky

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

 

Don't dilute <good thing> by always trying to focus on, and drag conversation back to, <bad thing>.

Nvidia:

3080 = best overall, ~102MH/s @240W

3090 = best density, but overheats easily and throttles, most cards require modding to achieve non-throttling operating temps, 125MH/s @340W

3060ti = best efficiency card, 61MH/s @120W

3070 = slightly behind 3060ti, 61MH/s @130W

3060 = no

 

 

AMD:

idk, most of them are 60MH/s i think, around 120-140W

 

edit: in ETH algo

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

This is pretty much the meta for ROI, but the 3080 is better in the long run. But consider trading coins instead of mining them, its also a good idea.

you also have to consider the overall cost of the rig as 3060ti density isnt great

plus the power draw from rest of the rig

yeap, this, unless you can get a GPU at MSRP

A 1050 ti should help you get started and shouldn't bottleneck your CPU or even a 1060

1050Ti hashrates are abominable for what it is, and 1060 barely scrapes by with the ballooning difficulties in ETH.

thanks all for the advices

 

i plan run 2 GPUs on one motherboard

 

can you recommend me any CPU (for run 2 mining GPUs) ?

Your A10 is good enough, its all about the GPU speed. As long as it has enough pcie lanes, it should be all good.

if you can get your hands on a RX 5700XT or flash an XT bios onto a normal 5700 it mines quite well for the amount of power draw. i get 54mh/s on ETH and 27mh/s on RVN with one card.

But right now any card you can get your hands on is gonna be pretty good. my mining rig had 6x RX 570's getting 160mh/s on ETH

how about this

1x RX 570 4GB

1 motherboard AM4 or 1151

1 ram 8 GB 

1 Ryzen 5 or Core i5 ?
