- Is CPU mining even worth the Ether? 4 answers
I'm new to Ethereum and mining. I would like to start mining for Ether and have been following threads and articles on the AMD 290's GPU capabilities and would probably want to lean towards this adapter.
How can I determine if starting to mine (solo) today makes financial sense? What factors do I need to take into account?
edit: for hardware, contemplating an i7 4th/6th gen or xeon 5th gen, probably around $1k range. for gpu i am planning up to 3 290's. as for electricity, it averages around $.13/kwh where i am.
