Well, the title says it all. I have plenty of parts around to build one and wanted to get into it.

Currently, I have.

1x MSI Z97 G45 motherboard
1x INTEL i7 4770 (stock cooler)
1x kit of 16 GB ddr3 ram 2x8 sticks 1600mhz
1x 240 GB SSD or HD 1TB


next the good stuff

1x GTX 750ti
1x GTX 970 (need to be fixed)
1x GTX 1660 Super
1x RTX 2060

What I know I need.

1x PSU Not sure what to get here so make a recommendation

So really just looking for any info that can help me out. The motherboard should have enough slots to fit the 4 cards I believe. Any tips on what software to use? This is all new to me so every bit of info can help.

Thanks in advance.

Forget the 750 Ti and 970 because it's not worthwhile to mine on them.

The 2060 and 1660S are decent mining cards and will only pull about 210w together. You probably have a PSU that can handle this.

I haven't used either of these cards, but I recommend trying GMiner first: github.com/develsoftware/GMinerRelease
