you don't really need those fancy mobs, find the cheapest one with as much pcie as you can to start with.
if the cryptcoin mining looks so delicious and you decide to take a bite, at this stage you may want to keep
your cost as low as possible.

Also you don't need a case, no matter how much it costs, go to Walmart and find a $2-$3 mild crate and put everything in you are set

You will need more RAM, 4G will at most let you rum 2 7950s for scrypt coins mining

en.....last thing, if you are good at Linux, you don't even need a HDD, USB key will do the trick

I'll offer my $0.02 and say GPU mining is weak. Look at getting an ASIC if you're serious. You'll spend about the same and actually get something much more powerful using less power.

There are asics for scrypt, just not available for purchase yet. They are being used however. Evidence of such was clear during the attack on WDC back in the beginning of Nov.
To say there is no scrypt asics is wrong, theres just none that you can purchase.
Folks aren't willing to sell money printing machines all willy nilly....
cryptoindustries has some in dev, as well as Alpha-T.

They're atleast five or six months out from a shipping product and that's assuming they're not another Butterfly Labs!

This is a WTB thread, not a Litecoin discussion thread. Only post if you have some hardware to offer the OP.
