MKIV intervention needed
perfect. i suspected that with pallets of miners in some of these peoples photos. thankswaste of money. 1050ti in my regular computer only gets 12.3 mhs on ethereum, 15.7 when memory overclocked 1000mhz (maxed out). there isn't another more profitable currency for it right now either.
it's basically only being sold because other cards are so high priced that people are flocking to the worse cards in order to try to cash in on dumb people. the ROI is what people should be looking at when buying. the the ROI can trick people because it's constantly changing. when i started, ROI for my setup was about 3 months, now it's about 7 months (if i started from scratch). and it's going to keep changing.
you could still get 1060s (3g cards) for the same price as the 1050ti right now because they are being bought up.
when i bought my cards, they were all 240-275 for the 1060's. and my 1050ti for my regular computer was only 135. prices have skyrocketed where you have to not like getting money back very quick to invest in it now. currently 1060s are 360-399. and 1050ti look like they are 260-275. all because as something goes out of stock, people are buying everything they can to cash in.
take a look at the sold listings to see what people are buying used mining setups for. looks like you could get a prebuilt 1060 6 card for about 2-3k
TL ; DR if you are going to get invested, go big. the ROI is close to the same, but once ROI is hit, the payoff is much larger.
if you want to get in, wait til the end of the year and try to snag the new Nvidia volta or whatever the fuck they are gonna be called line of cards. get a 2070 ti or 2060 or whatever they end up being.
