How Many 110v and 220v outlets for New Home Being Built

I’m have a new home built. I’ve opted from a 3rd bedroom to have an extra-large garage. In this garage, I plan to have Bitcoin and GPU mining rigs. I’ll also more than likely setup a swap cooler to blow straight at this technology marvel during the hotter summer times (North Texas).
For round numbers, in helping me tell the builder tomorrow how many 220V and 110V outlets I need in the extra space of the garage, given enough plug-ins, and enough wattage/amperage to back them up with…,
Let’s say I’ll have 5 Antminer type miners, and 20 total GPU’s mining non-Bitcoin.
What would be a enough of an electrical buildout request?
Thanks, and I’ll try to answer any questions to the best of my ability.

Disruption in Blockchain Proves that Crypto Mining Farms Can Get Affected by Corona Virus Outbreak Says Riot

Disruption in Blockchain Proves that Crypto Mining Farms Can Get Affected by Corona Virus Outbreak Says Riot
Disruption in Blockchain Causes Worries Regarding the Fact That COVID-19 will “quite surely” Destroy the Bitcoin (BTC) Mining Firms’ Operations Written in Riot
The rig builders of Nasdaq-rigs have already revealed concerns in their filed report on Wednesday named; “10-k report” under the considerations of Security and Exchange Commission’s. Usually these kind of report inculcates a section named as “General Risk” which is mainly established to mention the worst case scenarios which are to happen in the coming year or have been happened in the previous passed year.
This year, while making this report and furthermore making the different sections in the report, two subsections were devoted to write about the pandemic of COVID-19 in which all its cons were mentioned; the cons in the field of business, technology and the effects it will leave on the stock exchange.
Riot Blockchain has gotten scourged by the facts related to COVID-19. Most of the workers and people working here have quarantined themselves and all the employers have stopped working there as they already have been isolated themselves, which is causing major drawbacks to the exchange rates and supplies are seizing from these factories and lockdown of all the border supplies and as various border enclosures have been closed, it is causing major side effects to the Riot.
It also has been labeled as one of the “non-essential business.” According to the 10-K Report:
“Riot has not been classified as an essential business in any of “the jurisdictions that have decided that issue to date.”
And that is exactly one of another reasons why the business of the Riot has been destroyed and now being labeled as a “non- potential” business, which could not produce anymore due to this pandemic.

Should I pursue a career in this field?

About 6 months ago I built a mock up of an application that would have huge costs savings at my company. Since then I have primarily working with an actual development team and have taken on the role of collecting and writing requirements for each sprint.
My background: military/law enforcement, people manager of large scale unrelated teams, MBA-IT Management.
I have always been a curious builder, turning laptops into servers for minecraft or building simple html/php websites for projects. Setting up bitcoin mining rigs, arduino robotics ect.
Back to current, I was promoted recently so I can continue to support my product but now am building the front end. I am getting very positive feedback about my work. I still feel like I dont know what the hell I'm doing though. My biggest concern if I were to try to get into development is the realization that without youtube I cant build anything beyond simple html/css. I mean I can style any div at this point, so I can make a web app look any way I guess.
What I dont want: to be a slave to a ticket que, or mindlessly build garbo products as an assignment.
What I do want: to build useful and time saving tools that help make workers/customers lives easier with optimally efficient software.
TLDR: I really enjoy development and it comes easy to me, I dont have work experience and am hesitant to commit. Looking for feedback.

Daimler Carries Out First Transaction On Marco Polo Blockchain Trade Network Automaker Daimler has carried out its first transaction on the blockchain-based Marco Polo trade finance network. The pilot commercial trade transaction saw the firm — which owns Mercedes-Benz among other brands — process the data required to exchange payments with engineering firm and parts builder Dürr, according to a press release sent to CoinDesk on Wednesday (Sept 25). German bank Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW) was also involved in the trade.
Monero Protocol Upgrade Is Scheduled On November 30 According to AMBCrypto, Monero has caught the attention of the crypto-community for its upgrade towards the end of the year. The protocol upgrade will be carried out to improve Monero’s existing offerings. This upgrade will include freezing of code, which means that no further changes can be done from the developers’ end. There will be a network upgrade too. In order to enjoy the latest features after the update, users will be required to upgrade their systems to CLI v0.15 or GUI v0.15. Along with these minor upgrades, there is a significant number of major changes. A tentative schedule for the proposed upgrade was decided to take effect on 30 November.
SEC Officials Would Consider To Creating Some Safe Harbour For Cryptos In a congress hearing on Sept 24 with SEC, a representative for North Carolina Patrick McHenry asked SEC chairman Clayton if he believes Libra is security. Clayton said that he was not prepared to make a decision. “We have to see how different assets function, to decide whether they would be a security, a commodity or a currency. But if what you are doing is using a digital asset to raise capital for a project with the idea that you are going to get a return as a result of investing in that project, sounds like security.” Mr.McHenry also expressed concerns that “too onerous regulation would drive off innovation from the US and the upside potential for investors.” SEC Commissioner Peirce thinks the SEC still has work to do to make sure that people can develop digital assets in the US in compliance with the SEC rules. “I would like to see us be a little bit more forward-thinking in ways that we might accommodate unique aspects of digital assets. For example, as digital assets that are utility tokens, I don’t know that the securities law framework that we have right now is an appropriate framework for them and so I’d like to see us think about creating some kind of a safe harbour,” said Peirce. Peirce stressed the idea is to allow is their current law for that SEC to write rigs around them and SEC has the authority that could allow the regulators to do that.

Yesterday, we saw a breakdown in bitcoin below the $10,000 support area against the US Dollar. The price remained in a bearish zone and broke many supports near $9,800 and $9,500. Moreover, there was a break below the $9,000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the price traded close to the $8,000 level and registered a nasty decline. A low was formed near $8,055 and the price is currently correcting higher.
There was a break above the $8,250 and $8,400 levels. Moreover, the price traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $9,779 high to $8,055 low. However, the $8,750 level is acting as a strong resistance. The next resistance is near the $8,920 level. It coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $9,779 high to $8,055 low.
If there is an upside break above $9,000, the price could recover towards the $9,400 and $9,500 resistance levels. Additionally, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $9,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. An intermediate resistance is near $9,120 and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $9,779 high to $8,055 low.
On the other hand, if the price continues to struggle near $8,750 and $9,000, it could resume its decline. An immediate support is near the $8,400 level, below which it could test $8,250. If the bears remain in action, there is a chances of a break below $8,000. The next major support is near the $7,500 level.

/r/Monero - Newcomers Please Read. Everything You Need To Know.

What is Monero (XMR)?
Monero is a secure, private, untraceable (crypto-)currency. It is open-source and freely available to all. Don't believe us? Click here.
Monero is a tool that people can actually use. It makes receiving payments hassle-free, since merchants and individuals no longer need to fear the source of funds they are accepting. With transparent systems like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Verge, or Dash, these people need to hope (or spend substantial resources verifying) the sender did not use the funds illicitly. Furthermore, merchants do not want all their vendors known, and individually do not want everyone to know how much they are spending. If I spend more than I should at Newegg (store), that's my own business.
Monero is different because every transaction is always private. There is no way for pools and exchanges to opt out of sending private transactions. Thus, Monero's anonymity set far exceeds any other coin's anonymity set. Over 86,000 transactions in the past month of August, 2017 hid the sender and receiver, and about 99.95% of them also hid the amount (will increase to 100% of all new transactions in September)! There is no suspicion in using a private transaction, since all transactions are private. A single transaction does not stick out.*
This privacy is afforded with the best technology. I implore you to take a few minutes to learn about the four main technologies that Monero uses to provide privacy:
There are several other things that make Monero great! It has a smooth tail emission, dynamic blocks and fees, and an accessible Proof of Work (mining) algorithm.
*You can optionally choose a very large, unusual ringsize to make the transaction stick out. This is not recommended, and normal users who leave the ringsize at the default setting will not experience any issues. Also, it's possible for a user to manually add identifying information to the tx_extra field, which is something that a user must seriously go out of their way to do.
Now you know Monero (XMR) has the best technology. What else makes Monero (XMR) different than other cryptocurrencies?
P.S. Want a quick-start, simple your-grandma-could-do-it guide? Here's a great one!
Am I a bad person to consider using this?
No, Monero is freedom money. You can do whatever you want with it, whenever you want, where ever you want. We make it clear that you should own your wealth 100%. What you do with it, is none of our concern.
Where does the word Monero come from?
The word Monero comes from the language Esperanto. Monero means coin oand currency. The plural way of saying Monero in Esperanto and in our cryptocurrency is Moneroj.
How do I store Monero?
Monero Core
Monero Core GUI (If you don't know how to use it, click here for instructions and tutorial)
Monero Web-Wallet
Offline Wallet Generator
Is there a lightweight wallet for Monero?
Not yet, but you can use the official GUI with a remote node.
Are there any other ways to store Monero (XMR)?
Yes, there are many mobile wallets out there that allow you to store Monero (XMR). We do not recommend them, because they are not official releases of Monero. If you do decide to use other wallets, please make sure to do your research first before storing any Moneroj in the wallet. Anything used for Monero outside of official releases, will be used at your own risk. Some may be used for scamming purposes. If you still decide to take the risk; do not use them for large amounts. Also keep in mind that there is a high chance that Monero support will not be able to help you if you bump into any problems from applications outside of official releases. Why should you not use non-official wallets? Well would you buy a house and give your only key you have to the buildemanagement and wait for him/her to open the door to the house you supposedly own? No. Same goes with cryptocurrencies. You should always have possession of your private keys, and your Moneroj. Most non-official releases own your private keys, therefore you do not own the Moneroj.

FYI How to Pi Coin Cryptocurrency Mining Made Simple for Everyday People (Passive Income)

FYI How to Pi Coin Cryptocurrency Mining Made Simple for Everyday People (Passive Income)

Pi Coin Cryptocurrency Mining Made Simple for Everyday People (Passive Income)

Combining Cryptocurrency Mining with Traveling

Chances are, you’ve heard about the buzzing prices of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin but probably know jack about anything else of it. Understanding how Bitcoin and Blockchain technology works can be a bit intimidating and overwhelming for new users into the Crypto-space. But hey, I’m no expert either and I just dabble in it to know enough not to miss out.
As someone who aspires to become a digital nomad and travel the world, you may want to consider looking to start now. And here I can show you how easy it is to start with zero knowledge of Bitcoin, Blockchain, and cryptocurrency.
If you know how to download an app to your smartphone or tablet. Then you are ready to earn cryptocurrency. You use your smartphone for pretty much everything from communicating, paying bills, watching videos on YouTube all day, looking for restaurants and etc. So why not also use it to make you money every single day and doesn’t cost you anything more but to just download an app?
The tides are ever-changing, and to survive, you must sail with the wind. Not against it. Don’t leave free money on the table and read on.
Pi Network ( is getting increasingly popular every day and is perhaps one of the fastest-growing networks in the Cryptocurrency world as of 2019. It’s no wonder you would want to get as many members under you as quickly as possible.
Mining for Pi Coin cryptocurrency takes almost no effort but to simply make a single tap on the lightning symbol once a day. After that, you can continue to use your phone as normal or shut the screen off. The Pi coin is continuously mined for the next 24 hours in the background of your device without using massive amounts of energy unlike mining for Bitcoin.
As the Pi Network continues to grow with 1000’s of new miners signing up every day, the mining rate will be halved accordingly, which means it’ll be harder and slower to get Pi coins. So, it’s quite obvious to be one of those people to get a really early start on this popular rising cryptocurrency.
But why am I sharing my secrets? Aren’t you afraid of the competition? No, not really. Because for 1, I am a believer in Pi vision so I want to help it grow by helping you grow. Plus, even if this information is out there, I doubt that everyone who reads this will actually put in the effort to actually grow (please prove me wrong).
Please read on and learn the secret!
24h a day 7d a week
168h a week 4 weeks a month
672h a month
If the PI coin is listed on markets and the price is at $0,05 you have passive income from $336. If you mine passive 1 PI a hour. Its only one click on your mobile a day.

What Is Pi Network?

Pi Network is a small connected group of people within a security circle stitched along with other smaller security circles to create a “trust graph” that will help users know who to trust and transact with. The security circle is used to validate one’s identity to allow seamlessly and trusted transactions in the Pi cryptocurrency marketplace. This is to secure trust in the network that no fraudulent activities can take place.

The Core Team Members

Dr. Nicolas KokkalisHead of Technology Stanford Ph.D. and instructor of Stanford’s first decentralized applications class; combining distributed systems and human-computer interactions to bring cryptocurrency to everyday people.
Dr. Chengdiao Fan – Head of Product Stanford Ph.D. in Computational Anthropology harnessing social computing to unlock human potential on a global scale.
Vincent McPhillip – Head of Community Yale and Stanford-trained social movement builder on a mission to democratize how society defines, creates, and distributes wealth.

  • Their Mission is to build a cryptocurrency and smart contracts platform secured and operated by everyday people like us, but with simplicity.
  • Their vision is to make Cryptomining and spending as easy as “Pie”, making it the world’s most inclusive peer-to-peer marketplace that is fueled by Pi.
· The network has about 70k daily active members mining every day on the Pi Network app and is growing incredibly fast. Once they reach the first threshold of 100k users, they will HALVE the mining rate. That’s right, so mining speed for you will become lesser and lesser as more users join the network. However, if you join today and become a (PI)oneer and help steer the Pi network into the right general direction. You’ll get a larger piece of the PI(E) and grow it into massive savings until it hits the exchange market.
· They are going to release an update during Q4 2019 that will enable users to send their Pi coins to any other user on the network. This will be the beginning of seeing the true value of the coin. Personally, for me, I’m all in for the what if factor, especially when all it took was to download a single app.
· You don’t have to spend any extra money to mine so long as you have a smartphone or a tablet.

· Invitation Into The Pi Network

· Currently, Pi network is in beta and to join the network is through an invitation code only by someone who is already a member. You can join under my name and be added into my security circle.

What Can You Do with Your Pi Coins?

In the future:

  • Pioneers can wager Pi to engage the attention of other members of the network, by sharing content (e.g., text, images, videos) or asking questions
  • Trade Pi coins with other members
  • Use Pi to purchase goods in the Pi marketplace
  • Use Pi for advertisement
  • Exchange Pi for ETH or BTC which can be exchanged into fiat money
  • Much more as the network grows to mass adoption
As they are in beta now, you get to mine Pi coins at higher rates since there are fewer users on the network. Like Bitcoin for example; mining Bitcoin 10 years ago you would be able to get a few Bitcoin every hour or so. Now, you’ll get somewhere around 0.000001 BTC per hour since there are millions of miners now (mining rate differs for everyone depending on their rig).
Think of Pi like in the early stages of Bitcoin when nobody really knew or understood what its technology is really all about. Imagine if you knew then what you know now. Wouldn’t you mine it like crazy? It goes exactly the same for Pi coin.

Need To Know More?
Comment down below if you joined so I can add you into my security circle.

GAW Miners - Liars, Frauds - A brief recap of what we know.

EDIT: I was asked by a GAW staff member to compile a list of questions the community has with/about GAW, Paybase, etc. Please provide any questions you have below and I'll have them forwarded
EDIT 2: It seems Josh is working on answering the questions I've asked and compiled. We'll see what happens when answers are released.
Hello, in the midst of this public uprising against GAW I'd like to present some facts for those of you who either:
a. Don't know who/what "GAW" is and why they're a scam,
b. Are brainwashed by Garza; those of you who genuinely believe in Paycoin and GAW Miners,
c. Don't quite have all of the information.
Note that I don't have every possible snippet of information out there, I'll just bring up some of the main points and complaints.
Ten months ago Garza was first introduced to the Bitcoin community in this post and this post.. From these posts we learn quite a bit of information regarding Garza's past; he offered false business deals to eBay sellers to partner with him. In the first article, we see that after he offered this couple "20% of his total profit" from his mining company and the couple asked for a reasonable counter-offer of $5k/month to pay their bills since they were unemployed, Garza filed a false Significantly Not As Described case on eBay, causing the couple to quite a bit of money and seriously affected their finances. The couple did some research about Garza and found this:
After looking at their old facebook profile, we saw that they were originally DirectTV salesman preying on small rural towns around New England offering people high-speed, internet and other telecom services that these people weren't able to get for whatever reason before. GAW was able to coerce MBI (Massachusetts Broadband Institute) to donate $40,000 to them for helping to bring services to everyone in the communities. Garza promised to build towers and other bullshit in these towns to help provide services, but they never did. At some point even when community leaders (one was David Kulp) repeatedly tried to get in touch with them, they never heard back.
So, it seems Garza has a knack for deceptive practices 'eh? Since the posts are so long and there's a lot to discuss, I'll let you read them and formulate your opinion on Garza. (Thanks to DidHeJust for the links to those threads).
-Early Phases
Originally, GAW showed NO proof of mining at all (not an address, block, pictures of mining hardware, pool usernames, nothing). Later on, during the Hashpoint 'mining' phase, he purchased 5 PH/s worth of mining equipment from Bitmaintech. For the short amount of time Paycoin was available for proof-of-work mining, there were tons of people renting mining rigs in order to get a cut of the "$20 Paycoins." Since the difficulty was fairly low, the prices per TH/s of these miners were very high, making it extremely easy to ROI on them. I'd be willing to bet that GAW rented out a lot of their hashpower for profit. They're currently selling the hardware they have left from this on
There was also a brief period of time where you were able to purchase hardware from GAW and have it point to a pool of your choosing; however, this didn't account for too large of a portion of the hashpower they claim to have sold.
GAW Miners owns a forum created them them, Hashtalk. This forum is heavily censored; if you attempt to inquire about some of GAW's deceptive practices, broken promises, or Paycoin design you'll either be outright banned or shadow banned (your account will remain useable to you, but nobody will be able to see any of your posts). This led to this uncensored discussion thread on Bitcointalk.
- Broken Promises
Promise 1: *"Always Profitable"**
GAW Miners claims that their Hashlets would always remain profitable and the $0.08 fee per MH/s would go down overtime. You know what GAW did instead? They kept their fees the same even when people were receiving only 1 satoshi. That's hardly profitable at all, as it's the minimum amount that they can really pay. So, they decided to move to mining Hashpoints for Paycoin (another broken promise, explained later).
Promise 2: *"Paycoin would launch with a $20 floor"**
This one is interesting. For the three months or so Hashpoint mining was available, Garza claimed that Paycoin would have a $20 floor (essentially that GAW would buy up any coin sold below $20 to keep the market place there or higher). Now, however, they've purged their censored forum of such claims so all that remains are screenshots as proof. Here's a few: and Paycoin was traded at about $20 for a very brief period of time, but since then it's been dropping steadily, trading at just above $6/ea currently. Garza has done nothing to rectify the situation since.
Promise 3: *Large merchant support on launch**
From this thread we see that Garza promises that:
That’s right, you will be able to shop with Paycoin on the Amazon, Target, Walmart, Macy*s and Best Buy’s online stores.
A journalism website,, contacted Amazon and the other companies claimed to be partnered with GAW. These companies all denied being affiliated with GAW, Amazon even threatened legal action if this continued. Once the article was published, the coinfire website was mysteriously hacked and the day after GAW threatened legal action. Read more about it here: and
-Censorship [Developing!!!]
At the moment GAW is taking down videos they've posted where they've made a certain "statement" on their mining.
Ah, Paycoin. An altcoin plagued by delays and broken promises. Originally set to launch at $20 per coin, falsely leading people into investing money into Hashpoint miners for profit. The things Josh is doing and has done to get people to use Paycoin are laughable, I'd consider it treason against the Bitcoin community. He purchased the domain for $1,000,000 only to have it redirect to Paybase. Fun stuff 'eh? He's also claimed that his coin would be better than Bitcoin, denouncing it in order to promote his own coin. From code snippets we've seen, Paycoin's "Prime Nodes," part of the PoS system to generate new coins, has the ability to generate coins at a 350% interest rate. These wallets/stakers/controllers/nodes are only able to be controlled by GAW, of course. The code:
int64 nSubsidy = 0; int64 nRewardCoinYear = 0; // creation amount per coin-year if (primeNodeRate == 0) nRewardCoinYear = 5 * CENT; else if (primeNodeRate == 10) nRewardCoinYear = 10 * CENT; else if (primeNodeRate == 20) nRewardCoinYear = 20 * CENT; else if (primeNodeRate == 100) nRewardCoinYear = 100 * CENT; else if (primeNodeRate == 350) nRewardCoinYear = 350 * CENT; nSubsidy = nCoinAge * nRewardCoinYear * 33 / (365 * 33 + 8); if (fDebug && GetBoolArg("-printcreation")) printf("GetProofOfStakeReward(): primeNodeRate=%d create=%s nCoinAge=%"PRI64d"\n", primeNodeRate, FormatMoney(nSubsidy).c_str(), nCoinAge); return nSubsidy; 
Paycoin started off as a coin with a 13,000,000 coin market cap, with two stages. A Proof of Work and Proof of Share. Check this out: - Garza claims that he "mined" for the 12,000,000 coins he gained, although block one was programmed to give him that much... hah!
Credits to for this;
Block 1. 12 million premine.
343,196 XPY mined during Proof of Work period.
343,196 - 56,889 = 286,307 XPY not mined by GAW Miners
12,343,196 XPY coins mined Total at the end of Proof of Work including pre-mine.
100 - (343196.0 / 12343196 * 100) = 97.22% Premined at the end of Proof of Work
It also seems like Garza stole the logo for Paycoin from If you compare it with what's on they're identical.
-Current and Recent Events
It's also known that there was a massive security/data breech during the Paybase launch, which allowed users to see other's balances and personal information which is being blamed on a "Cloudflare Caching Issue," however, that excuse makes very little sense.
Currently, people are having trouble withdrawing their Paycoins from Paybase, which GAW is blaming on Authy. Authy's services are functioning fine for all other services, which leads us to believe that it isn't Authy's fault.
When Hashtakers were sold, they would've only been really profitable at the $20 per Paycoin mark. With the current price people are losing money on their investment.
Note: This is somewhat unfinished and I'd like to hear feedback on what I should add and revise.

[Discussion] My own personal guide to used hardware alternatives.

Hi there. My name is Jeff. I've been building systems for the better part of 15 years and try my best to contribute here actively. After being involved in this little community for a few years now, I'm noticing a serious lack of discussion about buying used components, and I feel like it's time to shed a little light on the subject for those looking to build on a (seriously) tight budget.
As Linus said in his scrapyard wars video, buying new on $300 isn't practical, and if you posed the challenge to him on a random day, buying used is almost certainly the path he'd choose. As someone who's been "scrapyarding" as a hobby for the better part of 10 years, I figured I'd take some time to share some of what I've learned for the modern audience.
Let's begin with a simple rundown of modern "budget" choices, and I'll tell you what I'd do instead.
The G3258 and Athlon 860k are the sub-$100 CPUs of choice, and both work just fine. I have built with both in the past, and each carries their own set of advantages.
Used Alternatives: You can go in a couple of directions here; if you happen to have an LGA 1366 motherboard lying around, you can get an i7 920 or better for under $50, and they still hold up reasonably well. Being that LGA 1366 boards are not typically cheap when purchased used, my favourite option is the Phenom II x4 Black Edition series, each of which compare favourably to modern budget options, and will even overclock on some incredibly dated, dirt cheap AM2+ boards. In my experience, eBay prices on these get a little too high for my taste, but I've been able to nab several on Kijiji locally in Toronto for under $50 as well.
The R7 260x and GTX 750 ti are often cited as budget options for most builders, with the latter serving a very specific role in systems where power draw might be a concern. While there exists no option that can complete with the low consumption of the 750 ti (or even the single 6-pin connector goodness of the 260x), its performance can easily be matched (and exceeded) for less money.
Used Alternatives: The bitcoin mining craze from a few years back led to the Radeon 7950 and 7970 being blacklisted on the used market, and I think the fears about burned-out cards are a little overblown. Here in Toronto, you can easily grab a 7950 for the price of a 260x, but I don't pay anywhere near that for my builds. At most, a Windforce will cost me $125, as where I recently picked up some non-boost edition PowerColor versions for a mere $83 each (bought 3 for $250).
EDIT: Forgot to mention something important - avoid the reference 7950 and 7970. They were employed to a far greater degree in mining rigs because of their rear-only exhaust, and if you see a bunch of them from the same seller listed at once, they're likely old mining cards. Only pick them up if they're incredibly cheap.
Want to go even cheaper? The Radeon 6950 (with the shader unlock, preferably) or even the 6970 will rival the performance of the 260x, and shouldn't cost Canadians more than $50-$60. I personally have 2 in my possession right now, and have gone through at least a dozen in the last 6 months.
In general, one should always avoid Nvidia when buying used, because they are far too popular and overvalued for their performance as they age. I still see GTX 660s selling for $150, which is absolutely absurd.
Motherboards on the used market are weird, and this can largely be attributed to the fact that they're hard to transport and don't handle well over time. As such, people don't really sell boards on their own that often, and you'll likely have more luck finding a combo of some kind (or even a ready-to-go tin-can with no graphics card) for less per part than you will finding a given board on its own.
Used Alternatives: The boards I'd recommend depend entirely on the CPU you've chosen. Being that I'm a fan of the Phenom II x4 series, AM2+ boards are going to be dirt cheap, but DDR2 RAM is actually fucking expensive, so you'd likely be better off going with AM3. I've even seen some used AM3+ boards (The 970 ASRock Extreme3, in particular) for as low as $40, so it wouldn't hurt to look.
On the Intel side, you're actually at a significant disadvantage. Much like Nvidia cards, Intel boards (and CPUs) actually retain their value and don't often come cheap. For me, LGA 1156 is the price/performance sweet spot, granted I can find an i7 8XX to go with it. Even still, they're going to run you a fair bit more than an AMD board, and likely aren't worth it by comparison.
Ram is ram. DDR2 is pricy as fuck due to an obvious market shortage of the stuff, so the AM2+ board option might not be best by comparison. DDR3 ram, however, is ubiquitous, and I always die a little inside when people building on a "budget" choose to buy new at all. If I'm being honest, I can get DDR3 ram from e-waste recycling companies for as low as $10 per 4GB stick, at 1333MHz, and not once have I ever had a bad stick of the stuff. Even for people going the route of the G3258 (which only supports 1333MHz), this is the clear winner.
Is value RAM ugly as sin? Sure it is. It is just as good as that fancy Ripjaws shit you've got in your current build? You betcha.
Hard Drives are actually a tricky game, as they are the single most volatile component in any budget build, easily succumbing to wear and tear from age and daily use. As such (and some might find this hard to believe) I actively avoid HDDs when building value systems for people and opt for cheap SSDs instead. As always, check the date on a drive if you're really insistent on buying one, and considering how cheap a WD blue is new, don't pull the trigger on one unless it's for less than $30/TB.
SSDs are obviously (akin to RAM) highly resilient and are nearly guaranteed to work when purchased used. The average SSD pulled from an old laptop or an office off-lease desktop, will have no more than 100GB of writes on it, which leaves 99% of its life for you to exploit. While there exists no specific recommendation for which brand to buy, just be sure you're getting a relatively good drive with SATA III capability. 120/128GB variants of these sorts should cost you no more than $50 in my native Canada, and I've even gotten lucky on some larger sizes too. Recently I picked up 4 256GB Samsung 840 Pros for $75 each (I came), just days after I bought a Crucial MX100 of the same size for $85.
Monitors are fun to buy, because the recent shifts in display technology have rendered a lot of recent-but-obsolete models nearly valueless. For example, remember when 16:10 was a thing? I actually still like 1680x1050 monitors, but the rest of the world seems to disagree, so I've been able to pick up 23" variants for as little as $40. Being that the slightly lower resolution actually eases the strain on your VRAM a bit, it's a nice fit for a lot of budget cards that might not have a full 2GB available, like some variants of the 6950. 1600x900 monitors are often just as cheap and come with the same inherent benefit of being obsolete despite being almost as good as its bigger 1080p cousin.
Keyboards and Mice
If you're on a budget, we can't even have this discussion. As much as I like mechanical keyboards and high-precision gaming mice, people building used $300 systems aren't going to allot any of their budget buying them. That said, wired USB keyboards and mice are virtually free (search your local goodwill or value village for some), and if you have to pay money, buy a wireless combo for $20 new from some little shit store in a suburb somewhere.
Cases on their own sell for about half of their original retail price, give or take based on the condition. I normally just get them as a part of a tin-can bundle and make use of them if they aren't too dirty, but when building for someone else, I'd often just prefer to buy a new budget case in the $40 range.
I saved this topic for last, because it's by far the most difficult category to master. First off, you really need to do your research and understand how PSUs work before delving into these guys, as the cost associated is almost entirely dependent on how resilient the underlying platform has been proven to be. Generally speaking, reading reviews on JonnyGuru and HardOCP is a great start, but none of them account for units that are several years old.
As a general rule of thumb, I use the EVGA 500W W1 as a reference point, and build my value tree around that. In other words, if a new EVGA 500W (a passable, proven budget unit) is cheaper than a used 500W variant of a better brand, why would I bother buying used? Sure, that 520W Seasonic S12II puts the EVGA to shame in terms of voltage regulation and ripple suppression, but can I really make the same claims of a unit that's 5 years into its life? Wouldn't I just be safer buying new? These are all factors you have to consider.
For me, the threshold lies around 50% in terms of cost savings vs. risk. In other words, if you can find a used quality unit for less than half the price of the cheapest quality unit available at a given time, buy it.
Anyhow I think that covers everything. And as a closing note, remember to be safe. Meet potential sellers (and buyers) in public, well-lit places, and try your best to avoid entering someone's home without some protections in place. Also, the more info you get about the person (address, phone number, etc) the less likely it is that a person will be trying to scam you. People who purposely conceal their identity do so for a reason.
Also, feel free to ask me anything about my own experiences buying and selling used. I've been doing it as a hobby for a long, long time and have sold many value builds to people who can't otherwise afford PCs. I'm happy to impart any wisdom I might've gained over the years.
Edit: CPU Coolers! Forgot those. Air coolers are a safe bet. They're slabs of copper and aluminum with fans strapped to them. Buy with confidence, and seek one out for $10-$15 if you plan to overclock. AIO water cooling is not so safe. Those things are typically only good for 2-3 years, and you have no idea how much longer a pump has before it gives. Budget builders likely aren't water-cooling anyhow, right?
Edit 2: Just to be clear, when I said I'd been doing this for a long time, I should clarify that a) I once owned a game store and sold systems out of there and b) I currently resell systems out of my house to raise money for charity builds. I really don't want people to get the impression I'm trying to sell anything.

First Time Miner, I need some help?

I thought I would start mining a coin that isn't as big as bitcoin and start investing them once I have a big wallet later on in life, I need some help from the community yo help me on my way.
I need a little help to get my mining software running at its peak. currently updating the Vert Coin Wallet from the beginning of time so will take some time.
What would be the best miner to mine using an Nvidia Card?, What would be the best Parameters to use when using a miner for my rig?, How long does it take to mine just on VertCoin and at what is your average speed when mining?, Do you think Vertcoin will raise its face value and be profitable?,
Computer Spec List: , Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7, MSI NVIDIA GTX 970 4GB - Overclocked, Corsair Builder Series CXM 750W. Corsair Hydro H100i GTX 240mm, Kingston Technology 240GB SSD, WD 2TB Internal Hard Drive - Black, Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2400Mhz, Intel Core i5-6600K Unlocked & Overclocked, NZXT H440-W1 Mid Tower, BenQ XL2411 144Hz Gaming Monitor,

A Case for Multi-PoWs as the Next Step towards CryptoUtopia

Satoshi originally envisioned a decentralized global cryptocurrency landscape with Bitcoin, defined in part by instantaneous, international p2p transactions free from any 3rd party oversight, the open source development of the Bitcoin network, and a blockchain that can be kept secure by anyone in the world with a CPU (or GPU) with a built-in reward mechanism for participation and compensation for the cost of electricity.
What we are beginning to see is a deviation from the third point about decentralized mining--a major deviation. The industrialization of Bitcoin mining is squeezing out the little guy from participating in the Bitcoin network. Consequentially, this makes it likely that the impoverished countries and underbanked people that need Bitcoin the MOST will be the LAST to directly benefit from it. This seems all backwards, and despite the mining industry's attempt to convince us otherwise,1 we are at a crossroads with what the future of Bitcoin (and altcoin) mining should entail. Do we ramp up industrialization of ASICs to better secure the network at the cost of increasingly excluding the rest of the world from participating? Can the industrialization of ASICs really make them cheap enough to put in the hands of every man, woman, and child in the world? If so, how long will that take? Or is there a solution elsewhere in CryptoLand that can positively correlate enhanced security with inclusiveness?
Looking to CryptoLand, we find a an innovative yet fragmented environment marred mainly by exclusionary attributes. Putting clone/copy/spamcoins aside (no explanation needed), a pattern we see emerging with new altcoins is a push to create PoW algorithms designed to "be ASIC free." At first glance, this seems to be healthy advancement for CrytoLand as innovation is always a breath of fresh air. But upon further inspection I believe they might be just as unhealthy for CryptoLand than the clone/copy/spamcoins, but in a less obvious way. These new PoWs, while innovative and resourceful of cryptography research, unintentionally fragment the mining community with their game of ASIC "Keep Away". Each new PoW cryptocurrency is inherently excluding itself from the rest, creating a new "island" of miners in CryptoLand that have fled from the mainland. Naturally, they begin distinguishing themselves from the rest of the SHA256 and Scrypt miners both socially and technologically, perhaps even subconsciously pitting themselves against those on the mainland. While not the end of the world in an environment that is pushing the frontier, the fragmentation is enhanced as clone/copy/spamcoins immediately pop up on these islands using the same PoW under a different brand and attract more miners from the mainland with it. Furthermore, each altcoin with a new PoW naturally grows larger as development aims to attract and retain more miners for its network security and value. CryptoLand becomes characterized more by fragmentation and less by decentralization as time goes on. It's hard imagine how a solution for inclusiveness could be found in this type of environment, but fortunately one was born recently in the form of a modular, multi-PoW blockchain called MyriadCoin.
With the birth of Myriadcoin, multi-PoWs solve:
Mult-PoW cryptocurrencies will act as the bridge-builders between these island and the mainland, instantly transforming fragmentation into decentralization. Miners can coexist with ASICs in an inclusive blockchain that rewards miners of each PoW fairly. SHA256 ASICs cannot squeeze the GPU miners out from the network because SHA256 ASICs compete among each other, not among the others for 1/5 of the block rewards in Myriad. As a sanctuary from ASICs, GPU miners can choose between 4 other PoWs (Scrypt, Skein, Groestl, or Qubit) that each receive 1/5 of the newly minted coins, respectively. If Scrypt ASICs come on the scene, GPU miners can still choose from Skein, Groestl, or Qubit. If ASICs come on the scene for Skein, Groestl, and Qubit, the Myriad developers can switch out one of the algos for a new, non-ASICed PoW. The game is no longer "Keep Away." The game is "All Aboard".
Looking ahead, we know impoverished countries still don't have the luxury of GPU rigs to participate in any cryptocurrency network (let alone Bitcoin). Until a PoW system comes out that is as inclusive as possible (e.g. "human mining"; anyone with a cell phone can mine), we are still left with imperfect solutions that keep 1st world countries alienated from 2nd- and 3rd-world countries. But imagine, even if a PoW system like the one just mentioned, is invented, it would be the largest fragmentation to date since the mining industry at large won't suddenly cease operations. This PoW system would operate outside the bounds of Bitcoin, Litecoin, and all the other "mono-blockchains" that are inherently exclusive. But Myriad, with its modular, inclusive multi-PoW blockchain, can build a bridge to all the human miners by swapping in their groundbreaking PoW and instantly have the entire world securing the same global blockchain with fair rewards and equal distribution.
Multi-PoWs are the next step in converting an exclusionary, fragmented CryptoLand into an inclusive, decentralization CryptoUtopia.

Looking for a turn-key GPU-mining box that can ship within days

An investor friend wants to play with Bitcoin mining just to get a feel for it. I told him I would search for a decent turn-key mining rig. He's non-technical, so this needs to be a machine that can ship to his house in Canada, be switched on, and basically start mining whatever trivial amount of BTC and sending that to an address.
Please send your recommendations for reliable rig builders.

About to drop around $2500. Would love some opinions on this rig.

Ive been reading and reading and studying for days on end now. I want to understand as much as i can before i drop thousands on a rig and start mining. My plan is to ride this out as long as possible. I have faith LTC will go substantially higher...not as high as bitcoin..but i feel it has huge potential. With that said...i will cash out when i get enough LTC to match my initial investment to pay myself back. This makes everything i mine after the fact nothing but profit (minus the electricity of course). Ill use that profit to build a second rig based on how this is going but that comes later. a PC builder and have been for 10 years now.
I will be using six R9 280x's. Preferably MSI but ASUS if i have to. I only want one motherboard so i will be buying six PCIe x1 to x16 POWERED risers. I am under the impression that x1 or x16 doesnt impact hashrate. Only gaming (which im obviously not doing). I have 4GB of DDR3 1333 laying around in my room so i dont need to buy that. I will be using Windows 8 since i hear the drivers for Windows net better hashrates. I am correct to assume i can use 6 cards with Windows right?
Now... i will be buying a 32GB SSD since they draw very low wattage and an Intel Celeron Dual Core Ivy Bridge processor that draws 55 watts.
Here is where i am really unsure. Can this be possible if all else above checks out...with two 1000watt PSU's? I plan to try and undervolt the gpu's a bit to save on power and heat. Is that enough or too much wattage? I figure id buy an Add2PSU and hook them both up for stability. The cards will draw anywhere from 1500-1800 watts with the rest of the system hopefully not drawing anymore than 150. Can this be done with a single PSU? DO i even really need the Add2PSU? Can i get away without using it? Or should i buy a 1250watt and a 1000 watt and have the 1000w power 3 cards with the 1250w powering the other 3 plus the rest of the system?
These are the parts:
(I understand the GPUs are out of stock. I am waiting a couple days otherwise i will buy from Tigerdirect. Bit more expensive but available.)
So what do you all think? Opinions? Suggestions? Am i crazy?lol

[Build Help] First Time Build for Gaming/HTPC/Audio Recording and Editing

I'm a first time builder looking to get a rig that will perform well and be reliable. I'd like to have it last a couple years. I would like to have the computer function as part of a DAW on which I can record and edit several instruments and vocals (probably Pro Tools) as well as using Ableton or similar software for making electronic music. I will be doing some moderate gaming, but nothing too crazy. I'd also like to use it as an HTPC. I will be coding and doing web/app development using environments like eclipse and VS, including using emulators such as android emulator in eclipse. I want to be able to work from home which involves VNC. Possible bitcoin mining. Tell me what you think.

Is this overkill for what I want? I have the money for it but was hoping to spend closer to $1000 if it won't make much of a difference. However if the difference between what I would get for $1000 and this ~$1300 build is substantial I would be willing to go the extra $300.

Is this overkill for what I want? I have the money for it but was hoping to spend closer to $1000 if it won't make much of a difference. However if the difference between what I would get for $1000 and this ~$1300 build, especially when it comes to audio recording, is substantial I would be willing to go the extra $300. I am in the US.

Merry Christmas /r/buildapc! Got $500. I want to upgrade my GPU to something hardcore but I can't decide between nVidia or ATI. Help me choose please!

I'm an oldschool builder. I've had cards of both types over the years, but right now I just can't decide! I've had good cards and bad cards from both manufacturers.
Understanding this is quite a budget for a gpu, I want something beefy. I am going to build a new rig this coming spring, and I plan on putting this gpu upgrade in that when the time comes, but for the moment I wanted something to get me by until then. My current mobo is an EVGA P55LE with an i5 750 @ 2.67ghz. I don't overclock, but I am worried I might get some bottlenecking. If that happens nothing to be done but build the new rig when I can.
Main goal: Replace my GTX 560Ti. It's only got 1.25gb of vram and I'm realizing you need at least 2gb these days, ideally 3 or more if you're going to play with all the graphics maxxed at 1080p at a decent fps. That's why I'm willing to shell out more dough for a nicer gpu replacement. What can I say? I like me some good graphics.
Here are the pros and cons as far as I see them:
nVidia Looking at something in the 700 series. PROS: Stable and established. Less expensive (at the moment). Good numbers as far as benchmarking is concerned. After RMAing ( -_- ), my GTX 560 has been good to me, it just can't keep up with the latest and greatest software anymore. I admit the need to RMA left a bad taste in my mouth, but that shit happens, and this card has been quite decent, if a little power hungry. CONS: Apparently the new ATI r9 series is more bang for your buck... or at least it was until litecoin mining stepped in and fucked all that up. We'll come back to that. I've heard rumors nVidia is about to release something new though, so maybe waiting might be worth it, if anything just for the price of the 700 series to drop.
ATI Looking at the new r9 series. PROS: Across the board these cards seem to deliver more power for less money. Or at least they did until litecoin and bitcoin mining sold them out everywhere and jacked all the prices up (lookin at you Newegg... shame on you.). For the new rig I'm still going to stick with intel cpu, but I was thinking about switching to a gigabyte mobo, so getting a gpu that plays nice is important to me. CONS: Fucking litecoin. Seriously. Also, it looks like a lot of the r9s are having technical problems. Lots of RMAs from what I've been reading and plenty of unhappy people. Could it be that this new architecture was rushed a little perhaps? Might be worth waiting for the next gen to be released.
Anyways, that's where I'm at with this. I really want a new GPU since I've acquired a lot of new software over the holiday season, but I'm still stuck on whether or not to wait, and which route I should go this time.
Thanks in advance to anyone who shares opinions/wisdom! Happy Holidays /buildapc!

Motherboard for 4x MSI 750ti

Hello everyone!
I'm pretty new when it comes to this stuff, so bare with me!
Here's the setup:
AMD Sempron 145 Processor - amazon
MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 - newegg
4x MSI GAMING N750Ti TF 2GD5/OC - newegg
Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt - amazon
Crucial 4GB Single DDR3 - amazon
2x PCI-E PCI Express 16X Riser - amazon
2x PCI-E Powered Riser Card 1x to 16x - magic growing
ADATA Premier Pro SP600 32GB SSD - newegg
I've got everything up and running, but I'm having issues with the 1x to 16x risers (or the 1x PCI slots). Basically, I'm getting ~300 kh/s on the 16x slots / risers, but on the 1x I'm getting ~100 kh/s (and various crashing issues) and I can't even get the 4th card to detect (motherboard won't boot). These problems are only on the 1x PCI slot and I've tried various ways of swapping the 3rd and 4th cards around in the 1x PCI slots, but no luck.
Since these cards don't have the external power, I thought it may be a power issue with the 1x risers, but they are powered. I did some research and found this review on newegg:
Cons: The 1x PCI-e slots are no good for use with a video card in a mining setup. The 16x slots work just fine. I am not sure if this is a BIOS issue, or a throughput issue, but using a 16x to 1x pci-e riser on the 1x PCI-e slots causes strange errors, freezing, and general headaches. I bought this specifically for mining, and now it's functionality as a 4-pci-e motherboard has been cut in half.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to fix this issue, or if maybe just getting a new motherboard would be the solution. If getting a new mobo is the way to go, does anyone have any recommendations for a 4x MSI 750TI rig?
Thanks in advance!!
EDIT: I'd also like to add I'm on the latest version of the BIOS and have IOMMU enabled as recommended by some other posts I've read.

Me and 2 friends are going in to bitcoin mining!:O Advice/tips welcome :)

So me and 2 friends have been looking at bitcoins for a while now and we were going to preorder BFL ASICs but having not seen them ship anything and the earliest shipping date as predictable as the rapture, we have decided to GPU mine until it's not worth it by which time we should have a sweet gaming rig :P
I used the mining GPU comparision to find out what was the best card, after much calculating and hunting I gave up on the idea of trying to find 4 5870's cheap and decided that the top end was probably the best bet, especially looking at some of the MH/s out the HD 7970 when overclocked.
I did a lot of shopping around and I think I found some good parts at a good price too.
1 x GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3 AMD 970A (Socket AM3+) ATX Motherboard 1 x GIGABYTE WindForce Radeon HD 7970 OC 3GB(I want to overclock this to 1100MHz) 1 x 750W Corsair Builder Series Modular Power Supply 1 x ARIAnet Titan Black Midi Tower Window Gaming Case 2 x Arctic Cooling F12 Quiet Case Fan 120mm (lots of fans:D) 1 x AMD (Piledriver) FX-8320 3.50GHz (4.00GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 8-Core Processor 1 x Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Quiet CPU Cooler 1 x 4GB (2x2GB) Corsair Value Select 1333MHz CL9 DDR3 Dual/Quad Channel Kit
The only things I don't need is a HDD and Optical drive as I already have spares.
The total cost of the PC is £680, bearing in mind the GPU is £330.
The motherboard supports Xfire so I could have 2 7970's.
One of my main questions is should we get a 2nd 7970 NOW or LATER?!
I've used the calculator to find out what the approximate hash rates are and this rig could pay for it's self in 3 months, sooner if the BTc value rises. We have also taken in to account the weekly power cost and worked it in to the return rate.
Advice or suggestions would be great:) Thanks
