Before you start to criticize GPU mining and saying that this is the worst time for starting something like that because of Ethereum going to full staking "soon", just to clarify that that is not a topic of this video nor a post... I have decided on creating another rig despite that fact and I'm aware of the risks that I'm taking by creating a new rig in "these times"...

As I said, I'm aware of the risk, but I will not ignore that information in deciding which steps to take... I'm in GPU mining since early 2017 and I know plenty of things about hardware and GPUs in general... I have always preferred ATI (now AMD) over nVidia and I'm not hiding that... It was a love at first sight when I bought ATI 9550 cards for my PC Playroom and they have worked flawlessly... Until now, ALL the cards that I own in my mining rigs are AMD, from RX 570, through RX 580, and finally, RX 5700XT that I have bought and built a rig last year...

But... I don't want to ignore the current situation with GPU markets and GPU performances on different algos for mining... It is a fact that nVidia cards work better with other algos which serve for mining other coins than ETH... For example, Ravencoin or ERGO... That makes them more competitive when ETH goes full staking... But... New nVidia cards have implemented lock for Ethash algo (serves for mining Ethereum) which unlocks only 50% of mining potential for ETH... Yes, there are some software solutions (through mining programs) that can unlock up to 70% of the hash rate, but that is still under what AMD cards can do...

On the other side, AMD cards don't have any limiters (yet) and you can mine with "full capacity" with them, but they have weaker results in mining other altcoins than nVidia... Regarding prices, they are always well balanced so there isn't too much thinking about that...

So which one would you pick if you have a choice? And why?

Help me to pick a GPU for my rig and check out the video for more pros and cons about cards...

Thank you for your valuable time,
