By my calculations, a pair of 290Xs would consume more in power than they'd produce in dogecoins. To get the profit Xidax claims, the PC will need to produce 80 Megahashes/s. Even at maximum overclock and optimization, a pair of 290Xs will struggle to put out 2 Megahashes. If I'm way off, please let me know, but so far the power costs have outweighed the coin value for me to mine with my 0.7 MH/s gaming rig.

Your calculations would have to include prices and coin values from February 2014, because thats when this article was written

This is from the April print magazine....

Now it's time for a DIY guide.

Looking at most of the parts from their site, and a quick newegg hunt, doing a DIY version would save you $500.

But for the extra $500, you get a lifetime warranty on all but the GPUs.

Whose life time ? Mine ,Yours or the company. I paid $600 for a new BFG TECH 8800GTX OC with a life time warranty. When it gave up the ghost the company was going out of business , lucky for me. What few people that were left as the ship was sinking . Did manage to send me a card DOA.

Lifetime of the company. Yes, there is a chance the company may close up shop right when a part dies, but for some having a safety net past the default parts warranty (ranging from 90 days to some having it's own lifetime warranty, namely the XFX Graphics cards).

Anyone want to buy a GeForce 8800 GTX for parts cheap ?

I have a LLC and quite the creative team of CPA's. I'd much rather pay CPA's then ever pay one penny to the IRS.

But this one works for most anyone...

Pay for all of the purchase on credit card, preferably a very low interest one. Pay most of it down over the first term, then let a bit of it ride out for a year or two. There's your warranty with most credit cards. Because typically when paying by credit card there's a warranty with the item as long as one is paying for it.

Check out those warranty terms in ones credit agreement
