I was recently tasked with putting together a GPU mining setup for a client with a $1500 budget and certain requirements. I am sharing the component list used for the build here so that anyone else with a similar budget and similar requirements can have an idea of what to select for their system.
This build allows for expansion of up to 6 total graphics cards. If your budget is lower, you can opt for a cheaper motherboard with less PCIe slots, a cheaper power supply with less wattage capacity, and maybe a different case.
Also keep in mind that there are better and higher quality components available, but for a higher price.
This setup can be used to mine Ethereum (ETH), Monero (XMR), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Zcash (ZEC), and any other cryptocurrency that uses a GPU mining algorithm.
Here is the parts list for this build:
Processor (CPU): Intel BX80662G4400 Pentium Processor G4400 3.3 GHz FCLGA1151
This build should add up to around $1500 as of January 31, 2018. This configuration should be ideal at least through February, although prices are still jumping around for power supplies, memory, and graphics cards due to high demand by other miners.
There are many options to consider, so keep in mind that this is just one build out of countless possibilities, but it should be a good starting point to base your own build off of. Or feel free to copy the entire build and use it for yourself.
If you’d like a FREE custom build proposal for your own budget and requirements, feel free to contact me or comment below. If I have time I’ll put together a parts list like this one just for you and post it on the website.
