I bought some risers but won't be using them... I expect to have them in a week or so. I was gonna throw them on TM but I'll put them here when they arrive for what they cost me.

 

Cheers - N

 

 

 

 

how much are those risers? how about their quality?

 

 

Looks like about $7-10 each. I haven't used them so don't know about quality but they will be unused and they have the 6 pin connector on the board plus came from a seller with thousands of sales and good feedback on them.

 

 

 

Cheers - N

do you think mining is not profitable?

I am sure it was... However it's my belief that it's going to be wildly less profitable in 6 months from now than it was 3-6 months ago...

 

Even if I could find reasonably priced video cards in stock anywhere, I have zero confidence that I'd ever see a return from them.

 

The simple fact that it's been wildly profitable for a while and has attracted so many miners into the various cryptocurrency mining efforts means that the difficulty will increase and therefore the payout has necessarily got to go down.

 

I'll let someone else take the punt on buying thousands of dollars worth of video cards :-)

How many risers do you have. I might get some if you still have them.

So there was a brief period there, when the price spiked in etherium. And a lot of people jumped on the mining wagon. Probably about the beginning of June. 

 

Since then two things have happened. The difficulty has gone from about 600TH/s to 1200T/Hs. The price has dropped from ~$380 to about ~$200. This price drop was always expected. Its taking twice as long to obtain 1 ether as it was about 2 months ago. Yes it potentially is still profitable. At some point you wont be able to mine Etherium. I suspect this could rupture its value, but in what direction it is still unknown.

10 received, individually packaged in anti-static bags with everything shown here. I'll sell them for $10 each plus shipping or all 10 for $100 including shipping. (One is opened to take the photo)

Yes I do still have them.... Your post reminded me I was going to list them on Trademe tonight, but I'll hang off until just before I go to bed in case anyone here wants a last chance.

 

I'm in Christchurch, so that's probably not close enough to pickup :-)

Will drop you an email now. I might have played with them if I wasn't in the final stages of a home build as well... There's so many things to pay for right now that a bunch of overpriced videocards is the last thing on my list.
