Entry Level GPU Miner Rig Build Config Checklist
Feel free to modify, this list contains some Amazon Aff Links, thank you in advance if you use them.
This list was designed by Cryptogenik, with 18+ Years of system building experience and several years of mining experience.
I started mining Bitcoin, then Litecoin, then Dark coin etc. This is a super budget build that doesn’t skimp on quality.
Some of the parts have up to a 10 year warranty. The ASUS 3GB cards are the best deal, but the 6GB cards give a slightly faster hashrate.
You can mix and match the graphics cards, but 6 is this limit on this very Sturdy Case. Please MSG me on Twitter if you have any questions.
