As the interest for mining grows and programs like Honeyminer are starting to gain popularity.  The biggest thing I hear everyday is “I want to build a mining rig, buts its just too expensive”.  Well hopefully this article may put some of these worries to rest.  Also my followers have spoken, and they wanted an NVIDIA build.  So here you go!!

Add All Components to Cart Here

Graphics Card

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.

Power Supply

EVGA Supernova 750 G3, 80 Plus Gold 750W

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Price:  $99.99
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.

Motherboard and CPU

GIGABYTE GA-H110-D3A and Intel Celeron G4920 Desktop Processor 2 Core 3.2GHz

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Motherboard Price:  $69.48

CPU Price:  $54.99

This combo is great for a starter build but also has plenty of room for expansion with slots for up to 7 GPUS

RAM

Patriot Memory Viper Elite Series DDR4 4GB 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Price:  $37.99

Great deal on a great brand. Not much else to say here.

SSD

Kingston A400 SSD 120GB SATA

 

 

 

 

 

 

Price:  $28.99

Amazing price for a 120GB SSD

GPU Riser

N N.ORANIE PCIE Riser 1X to 16X Graphics Extension

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Price:  $9.99 each

Rig Frame

Price: $37.00

Fans

Noctua SSO Bearing Fan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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
