    hi all,

    Thinking of getting back into mining, but out of touch.
    Been looking at a new Gfx card as my 1050ti is a bit slow for gaming.
    Been looking aat
    Amd Rx590
    Vega 56
    Nvidia 1660ti

    The 590 is obviously cheaper, but would I miss much mining wise compared to the others?

    For its current pricing if you game and mine the vega is hard to beat.

    I bought with the 3xgame bundle and sold on for£50 so made it a no-brainer. Not sure if another game bundle will be coming along..

    The vega 56 will mine double the 590 almost but will use less than twice the power.

    How did you sell the games? I am thinking of going for the vega 56 offer.

    The account you make can either be transferred or you can create one to throw away. Sold in the MM on here like many others do. I hardly get time to play games these days so these new titles are better use in someone elses hands - but think of it as a rebate meaning the card cost £50 less. Bargain.

    Yes same here, no time for new games anymore. Just playing ff14 when I have spare time.
    How do I access the market place here? Do I need a certain number of posts / been active for a certain period?
