Help buying mining card
« on: February 04, 2014, 04:23:25 PM »
Hi!


I am a little confused as to which card to buy. Power consumption is irrelevent, hash rate is the most important thing for me.


I am struggling to decide between:


Sapphire HD 7950 MAC Edition 3GB


Sapphire TOXIC R9 280X 3GB


Asus Radeon R9 280X


And a 7970 if I can find one for under £320 (~$520)


Cooling is secondary for me, and I hear the Asus cards have really good cooling.


Is the R9 280X the best hash wise? I have read a lot of conflicting information :(


Any advice is much appreciated!

Get the Asus Radeon R9 280X DC2T, best card so far (cooling & hash wise)

for absolute highest has rates, the HD 7990.


I personally like the R9 290x. The Sapphire Tri-X seems to be the best at keeping temp and noise down.
