I am a bit new to the whole mining thing and just have a economical issue when it comes to selecting GPUs. Sorry if the title is in appropriate.
Let's just say in mining Ethereum, a 1070 ti (costs $945) has a speed of Approx 30-31 Mhz a 1080 ti (costs $1450) has a speed of approx 38 mhz a 1060 3gb (costs $350 used) has a speed of approx 20 mhz.
Putting aside the brand new/used factor, PCI slot usage on the board, DAG size etc and considering only sheer economics/speed,
I could buy about 3 1060s and get a total speed of approx 60 mhz rather than buy a 1070 ti. I could buy about 4 1060s a get a total speed of approx 80 mhz.
Therefore, does buying 3/4 1060s rather than 1 1080ti or 1070ti get me at an advantage in solving shares?
Does the speed/ram in a GPU has a part in playing the share solving scenario? What would you recommend if I am at a budget in starting up this mining thingi?
I know individually the 1080ti will out perform the 1060s in it's sleep.
