ok, so from what i have read the 1080ti is the bomb, providing awesome hash rates on zcash, and is not using a ridiculous amount of watts.
470 would be my choice, but even second handed the market places in our country are full of people asking them, so i guess i'm not the only one mining in this country.
i'm tempted buying them. but i am afraid of ending up with a one trick pony that is only good for mining zcash and the likes. if zcash goes down, you're going to be stuck.
also, if vega comes in august or september, this could have an impact on everything, because i expect (hope/wishful thinking) that they will be the better ones for being able to mine both zcash and eth.
reason why i still might consider 1080ti (or 1070 maybe) anyway, is that i have limited space , i dont want to put my garage full of miners
also in my country i pay a lot for electricity (0.20 euro), but since the prices of zcash went up, i care less about the electricity to be honest, just prefer to mine more and get quicker return (especially with vega coming)
i have a left over machine with 750 watts in it. how many 1080 ti gpus could i put in there if i would undervolt them? let's say 150 watts for the system, 600 left, 500 to be safe? according to https://forum.zcashcommunity.com/t/my-first-rig-build-1080-ti-gpus/16300/4 that could be 2 cards at 249w for instance, mining 2x 734 sols.
what do you think, would 2 1080ti's be ok with the 750 watt cpu?
and what are your thoughts in general on nvida cards for mining? can you mine anything else that is profitable enough?
