Real Hardware Reviews / MSI GeForce GTX 1050Ti Gaming X 4GB
« Last post by Soullessone21 on September 06, 2017, 07:18:53 AM »
The MSI GeForce GTX 1050Ti Gaming X 4G may cost more than the typical 1050Ti but for enthusiasts it still represents one heck of a bargain. After all, for a mere thirty dollars more than a stock GTX 1050Ti you get a much better card that is capable of a lot more than what you can expect from a factory stock model.

Depends on what you want to mine, But as stated above 1060/1070s are a good start. a 1000W PSU would power a 5 GTX 1070 rig np, or a 6 gtx 1060 rig.

I don't doubt a 1000w powering 5 1070s, but I don't think I would run more than 4 personally.

Thanks guys.

From an electrical safety point of view you do not want to be running 2 power supplies to 1 rig off of two separate breakers. As the power supplies themselves will be connected to each other you could possible be create extra load on one of the breakers / power supplies in the result the other one is/gets tripped. There is a possibility a fire could start from this. You'd be safer running two separate rigs on two separate breakers.

 :o Thanks for the headsup! Okay, two rigs it is then!

Each 1070 needs about 150W so even with 10 cards you will need at least two PSUs. The other issue is that a standard North American residential circuit won't be able to handle that much either.
I'd personally split it into two rigs with 5-7 cards each.

Hey, thanks! I believe I could also spread the load over different circuits via an extension cord. Either way, do you think a 1300W PSU per 6 GPUs be overkill?

The cheapest way to get started is definitely finding some used cards.
If you have to buy new then I like 1060s or 1070s. Great power/hashing ratios and very versatile.

PSU is 1000 watt

Not free power, but its good.
