What are the best GPU for mining thats the most question i have received in the past couple months since bitcoin hit $19k.
Looks like everyone and there mom is trying to start mining so here is some info to get started and to keep in mind.
You need to be living where the cost of electricity is not very high or you will end up paying way more for electricity then making any profit for what you are mining. Another option you have is actually to start getting your energy from renewables like solar or wind. This can even benefit you personally on your electricity bill in the long run and help the environment.
After much resource here is the best cheapest equipment i can find and links are below directly where you can buy them.
Email me or comment below if you find anything cheaper and i will add it to the list.
xfx radeon rx 580 2 rig with 8 card
sapphire nitro rx 580 1 rig with 8 cards
powercolor red devil rx 580 1 rig with 8 cards
Nitro+ card give 31mhz/s mining speed
Also if you got the cash to spend then this is the top gaming graphics card:
NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1080 Ti : Has the best hash rate for ETH Ethereum, but down side is it consumes to much power under mining load but the midrange cards like the GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon RX 480 don’t take as much power.
What is a GPU you ask ? here is simplified wikipedia Definition:
