I have an old 1366 mobo that supports 4 way cf, should I use this along with an old 920 cpu for some mining action? All I need are the cards.

Shall I become rich?

If you want to throw away money, I can think of better ways.

Some which include just giving it to me.

Now, I'm not sure how effective relatively 290s are for mining but if you can get free electricity then go for it. If your apartment complex has included electricity or you live on campus or something.

It's probably more effective to build 4 separate machines btw.

hmm throwing money to break records. i'll go with 290 and LN2 try to make highest overclock stable. plus you might get famous like shimano. he gets to travel to places and represent Asus or whatever company pays him.

Oh, no s***. I don't have that many computers capable, just 2.

I pay my own electric tho, so it's not worth it to run that much?

what's sad is that I actually want a 290 for gaming and you're buying up all of the stock on this garbage. I really hope you all get screwed over in this bitcoin/litecoin thing. This is a gaming forum... why are we not flaming the **** out of these people?

He's probably thinking "This is Gamefaqs not Hardwarefaqs." or something.
