    Mining Hardware

    I'm also building a mining rig myself. I've read most of the posts on YouTube. ASUS B250 Mining Expert (gradual buildout) Multiple 1080ti Not sure of processor yet
  2. you can mix and match I try to keep them similar as far as just being NVidia or AMD

    for Denarius Nvidia is far superior for the algorithm. As long as your motherboard has enough PCI-16x slots you can add a 1080ti no problem. Also want to make sure you have enough power when adding on, as well as space if it is in a case.

      You can add another graphics card no problem a 1080ti might be a little much on the power supply. I'm not sure power draw on thread ripper. If thread ripper is under 200 watts you can add the 1080ti, if it' more I would go with a 1080 or 1070 ti

      That' a very nice system

    OK, what about adding additional graphics cards. Keep them in the same family (GeForce)? Must be same model? I'd like to add a 1080ti.

    Mining Hardware

    Folks, I just ordered a new computer that I intend to solely use for mining. It is not a mining rig. Here are some specs that I think are important. CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X 3.8GHz [4.0GHz Turbo] Eight-Core 16MB L3 Cache 180W Processor CS_FAN: 3X 120mm Case Fans for your selected case [+9] HD_M2SSD: 512GB WD Black Series PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD - Seq R/W: Up to 2050/700 MB/s, Rnd R/W up to 170/130k [+224] (Single Drive) HDD: 1TB WD Black SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 7200 RPM HDD [+37] (1TB x 2 (2 TB Capacity) RAID 0 Super Performance [+89]) MEMORY: 16GB (4GBx4) DDR4/3000MHz Quad Channel Memory (ADATA XPG Z1) MOTHERBOARD: ASUS ROG X399 ZENITH EXTREME E-ATX w/ RGB, 10Gb/s LAN, WiGig 802.11AD WiFi, USB 3.1, 4 PCIe x16, 1 PCIe x1, 1 PCIe x4, 6 SATA3, 3 M.2 SATA/PCIe, 1x U.2 [+357] NETWORK: Onboard Gigabit LAN Network OS: Windows 10 Pro (64-bit Edition) [+31] OVERCLOCK: Pro OC (Performance Overclock 10% or more) [+19] POWERSUPPLY: 800 Watts - Standard 80 Plus Certified Power Supply - SLI/CrossFireX Ready [-6] VIDEO: EVGA GeForce® GTX 1060 Superclocked 6GB GDDR5 (Pascal)[VR Ready] [+81] (Single Card) I'm concerned that since I have such a good CPU and a moderate GPU that I will be limited while mining. Can a mining program be setup to use both resources?
