ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 8GB
Price: $442.99 each
Best Algorithm: Zhash
Profit per day (based on .10 kwh): $.60 both cards
Yes the profit per day looks ugly right now. But thats just the way it is in a down market. The biggest thing is NVIDIA cards are the best for SPEC Mining plays. You just need 1 to hit big to pay your whole rig off.
EVGA Supernova 750 G3, 80 Plus Gold 750W
The EVGA 750x PSU is great for a budget build. Its gold rated so its stable. And 750w is enough power to safely run 3 1070TIs.

So lets run the numbers. The total cost of this build before tax and shipping is $1255. Now I’m going to be completely honest. The ROI on this rig right now is over 2 years. I know. This isn’t great. But with the market in the state it’s in there is nothing we can do about it until it turns around. Like I said earlier though. The play in the bear market is SPEC mining. NVIDIA gets all the SPEC Mining plays first. One coin can pay your rig off. I’ve done it. Or you can just mine what is most profitable and have fun with it. The choice is yours.
I hope this guide was helpful. If you have questions you can always get a hold of me on
