Hey what you think about getting 270x and OC it
Friend @ 2:04

idk enough about it
Alvin @ 2:05

Stock gets about 400-450 hashes

Alvin @ 2:05

Over clock will get you about 500-550 which is same as 7950
Friend @ 2:05

max will pull 475 kh/s
Alvin @ 2:06

where did you see that?
2:06

I was guesstimating
Friend @ 2:06

haha okay
Alvin @ 2:06

no need to guess so hard like that
2:06

That is max at stock though
Friend @ 2:06

If you OC then you’ll get more
2:07

these numbers are overclocked for sure
Alvin @ 2:07

well
2:07

i mean the last one
2:07

you can see that the memory clock is at 1500
2:07

uses 230 watts
2:07

R9 270X, 100364L
2:08

ctrl+f “R9 270X, 100364L”
2:08

So you don’t think its a good idea? Cause this 280x shit getting stupid can’t find any
Friend @ 2:10

For 330
2:10

280x is reported to use 300 watts max
Alvin @ 2:11

30.4% higher power usage
2:11

gets 54.4% higher hash rates
2:12

I know that… But you can’t buy one those stats are pointless
Friend @ 2:12

Haha
2:14

right, what you brought up is another part of the analytic answer
Alvin @ 2:14

it depends on the amount of time that you’re willing to wait and what you know about card production speed to the market (nothing)
2:16

AND the amount of time that you plan on mining (I’m assuming that number is indefininte)
2:17

long run, wait for the 280x it’ll pay off in huge amounts
2:18

if you feel like 280x will never show up on the market again, don’t wait and get the 270x
2:18

I don’t know what the buy orders on 280x chipsets are
2:18

So your saying its justifiable to pay 430 for at 280?
Friend @ 2:19

I don’t think so
Alvin @ 2:19

I think it’s just a craze right now and you should wait for prices to come back down on those things in a couple week
2:19

weeks*
2:19

for now, if you want to get into the game immediately, buy coins. it’s possible that your money may be better spent there at the rate of difficulty increase + difficulty to find proper hardware
2:20

especially because btc and LTC are down right now
2:20

long term running inferior hardware is not a good idea because it’s already hard enough to pay off good hardware.
2:22

buying good hardware at +33% costs is just going to make it that much harder to pay them off.
2:23

all these undefined variables are starting to throw you off huh?
2:26

They are all contradicting at one point lol
Friend @ 2:27

So now its a waiting game
2:27

yeah~ I think we should all just play the waiting game
Alvin @ 2:28

I’m not going to do anything drastic for a couple weeks
2:28

no more miners
2:28

no more buying coins
2:28

just enjoy the roller coaster
2:29

And let your rigs mine right?
Friend @ 2:29

yup
Alvin @ 2:29

i think we all got in at a good time
2:30

don’t let yourself get raped with the rest of the noobs panic buying $400 cards
