I tried to stack an HD6870 in with the R9 280x but drivers wouldn't allow it, today I might try putting the r7 265 with the 280x and see if the drivers allow that both are still supported where the HD6870 wasn't.

In case anyone else is wondering the r7 265 1GB generates $1.40ish usd a day and the 280x $3ish usd a day and lastly the FX8350 generates $0.77ish of a usd a day.

not bad at all, I have not tried a 6xxx series in some time so that makes sense.

Thanks for sharing and again thanks for the great comments

Well, my last report.

I found that for whatever reason the HD6870 will not recognize in nicehash even by its' self.

So with the r7 265/ FX8350/ r9 280x it generates between $5-$6.xx a day using 491w-498w which will cost about $42 cdn for 30 days.

Thank you for the guide because I had no idea what I was doing and thanks to Arinoth for pointing out where to find the guide.

I think if you use old drivers it would accept the 6870 and 280x. I highly doubt the CPU is worth the electricity for mining.

Is the 280x mining claymore equihash...after you start within nicehash?

No the old drivers didn't work either on its' own or with the 280x.

The way I figured the cpu is it costs $11 to power it and it makes $22.xx, so the way I'm looking at it is I spend 11 and get 22 back so I'm still up $11.

I am all green on the subject but please just explain how to make the most profit with a 290X. I see Bond007 says the 280X is doing 12Mh/s, my 290X shows 28MH/s so the profit would be more than double, just please let me know, step by step, you know, as for a noob.

you got PM with the details. I stopped the DaggerHashimodo and after the benchmarks that I saw, I selected Equihash with AMD Claymore and when it started I saw something with a big Zcash logo.

Sounds like a lot of future debt :o . Long ago on HWC forum, when I was skeptical about the mining someone said he had a pile of silver bars. I wonder if that was true or he was saying it because he had so much bitcoin that he could actually buy silver bars.
