I have been asked by many the following question, " What is the best hardware to CPU mine Crypto with?" What I am going to do is outline one of the known computers that is the best in the CPU mining category. Remember, the secret is not the most hash power, like some so-called, experts claim, it is however multiple streams of income.
So let us get into this. The object is to get the most out of your mining experience, so it is very logical that you would not want to use an INTEL computer system, unless you were wiping the system and using a Linux operating system. This is due to the fact that Windows is a clear disadvantage to miners. You will see a significant increase in hashing power in a Linux operating system, rather than a Windows Operating system.
Therefore, it is with countless hours of research, as research is approximately 80% of the Cryptocurrency mining field, that I present a bare basic system that you should have. Remember, if you use Linux your hash power will not only increase a large amount, but you will benefit financially a little more as well.
Let us Outline a basic system you should have:
Ryzen & GTX 1050 Ti Edition
AMD RYZEN 3 1200 4-Core 3.1 GHz (3.4 GHz Turbo) | 1 TB 7200RPM Hard Drive | A320M Motherboard
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Video Card | 8GB DDR4 2400 Gaming Memory
Wi-Fi Ready | No bloatware | 1 x Dual-link DVI, 1 x DisplayPort (version 1.4), 1 x HDMI | 9 x USB (4 X USB 2.0; 5 X USB3.0)
The specifications I gave you is just a decent machine, that can run a little under $800.00. You can get more as you mine enough to expand. Remember the job of any crypto miner is to do what works best for them. I have seen a RYZEN computer system be used for CPU mining while having 45 USB hubs attached with 12 GH's USB miners, as well as 3 GPU cards mining another algorithm.. The only way to do this right is to research for yourself, and make up your mind. Do not listen to anyone else, because they probably have not even figured out that mining is not solely based on Hash Power. If you have seen the Lawn Mower man when he was in cyber space and trying to access the internet by unlocking the block, that is why most people I know stack up that many USB's, and GPU,s because it gives more of a chance for that many USB's all working on a collective basis, but still acting as an independent GPU to crack the lock, rather than 1 miner. Experiment for yourself, you will see what I am talking about. Remember, Experience is the best teacher
