It was $2000 just 2 months ago. What's the matter with you people? :)

It is "buy low, sell high". And it isn't low yet. Wait for $1500.
That's what i meant.

Buy low = buy now
Sell high = sell later

Hi.. I lost my wallet with 0.76BTC..

would it be worthwile to mine on my present system?? i have a HD 7790 and a FX8320?

An assumption that BTC price could already be considered low (at $2000) is pretty optimistic. Once again: this is a price we had just 2 months ago. At the end of 2016 it was under $1000.

$2000 it is not low but if it goes under $1700/$1600 then wouldn't be a bad time to buy and sell it later.

What are the dangers of mining on a GPU, honestly? It can't be any worse than running folding@home? I don't recall seeing many people saying their folding cards died...

Most GPU miners don't give a rats ass about artifacts as long as the clocks are stable. A lot of cards end up with bad memory.

For me i used 8 maybe 9 cards folding and all lived on until thoroughly useless or are still in use, cant really say what mining will do but low temps helps and i cool them adequately so ill get a few years out of them ,my 480(580bios+) have never been above 56 and their vrms never above 70 ,that kind of cooling does wonders for longevity even at max stable clocks though obviously you don't mine at max

Err and mamy cards , funny if odd:)

Sounds like the result of less than proper overclocking. I've clocked mine up for very short periods of time, thinking about how I can earn more with higher clocks... then I reset to stock because I don't want to risk losing my cards to overclocking, nor do I feel like taking the time to do it properly. I know about temps too, which is why I set a really aggressive fan curve. It starts out at 40%, then up to 80% at 50c, and 100% at 60c. My cards usually hover around 70c at 100% fan speed now. I don't have the greatest cooling with these blower style coolers, so, yeah... Kinda wishing I would have paid a little more for the one with the better cooler, but what's done is done and the card itself is more or less the same anyway.

If there was an easy way to clock both cards at the same time the right way, I might consider it, but easy way and right way rarely coexist.

The ones that died where crap anyways. The memory did not overclock that high. The ones that died where all Nvdia 1060 3gb, memory overclock on those averaged 200-300mhz on the memory, the rest of the 1060s are at 550mhz overclock.

Get a different GPU. You won't make a profit with this one.

no decent GPUs are available in my country ATM. AMD were always out of the question, as very few stock came here.

what about a GTX 1060??

Will you make a profit ? Yes. Is it worth it ? Probably not.

Just for reference I have a 1060 and I made a quick estimate and right now I would make about 600$ a year in ETH. That is with the current situation and without factoring in what I paid for the card. Not to mention that I'd have to run the card 24/7.

If you really insist on mining, you can check here:
https://www.nicehash.com/?p=calc
The list of equipment is somehow limited, but fairly OK for latest GPUs.
7790 is not listed, so I assumed performance around ~60% of 7870, resulting in negative cashflow.

Basically, you have to consider just how bad this moment is to get into mining. Cards are still expensive because of the profitability explosion we've had in June (the one that, as I'm sure, has drawn you to this idea). At the same time profitability is more or less on a level we've seen in early 2017 - when hardly anyone cared about mining...

India has pretty cheap electricity, but if cards cost as much as in Europe, you're looking at ROI > 1 year. And since this is (I assume) your main desktop, 24/7 mining seems unlikely.
