Some questions on start

Hello, I'm totally new in mining. I wanna start with ZCash but i have problem what i should buy? I have around 5k$ on start.
What CPU i should buy?
What GPU I should buy and how much?
I should install ubuntu yes? :smiley:
What do you guys can me recomend for start? Any good forums to read or something?

i don't think you're going to be able to afford enough computing power to mine effectively with only $5k.

i just downloaded elementary linux. it's fairly new, i believe, with an emphasis on design.

this forum seems pretty active and healthy.

so money are no problem for me :smiley:
