Hi guys.
Im currently thinking about to get a "cracking rig".
I would prefer it if i could use it for daily tasks like gaming.
But cracking Power is more important.
Budget would be 3200€, maximum 3600€.

Show me your love please and build me one.

A second hand mining rig is a valid option but don't expect much gaming performance on that out of the box.

I'm not sure which cards are best price/performance value at this point. But I'm guessing the gtx 2060 will take the crown in that aspect. (in gaming it's on par with a 1070 ti)

You could get like 4 cards and make an open air rig. And just use one card for gaming when you're not cracking. Just make sure your gaming card is in a full PCI slot and not in a riser, the cracking cards can be in risers. And get a good amount of RAM.

Or you could build 2 rigs. The noise aspect might also play a role and you might want to isolate the cracking rig from your gaming room/desk.

It's all up to you really, there's certainly a point where more cracking power matters les than skill / experience

Edit: Also I believe a while ago there were "plug & play" cracking rigs being sold on hashkiller, not sure if those offers are still active

Interesting. Thank you for your thoughts!

A Company in my country offered me a Crackingrig Setup with following Parts:

1x DimasTech EptaHash Mining-Rig Case for 7 GPUs
1x Gigabyte H110-D3A BTC Edition, Intel H110 Mainboard - Socket 1151
1x Intel Pentium G4500 3,5 GHz (Skylake) Sockel 1151 - boxed
1x G.Skill Value Series, DDR4-2133, CL15 - 8 GB
1x ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Mini, 2048 MB GDDR5
4x ZOTAC NVIDIA P104-100 Mining-GPU, 4096 MB GDDR5X (Micron)
4x Kolink PCI-E x1 to x16 powered Riser Card Mining/Rendering-Kit SATA - 60cm
1x Ream Group L5 Lite Series 2,5 Zoll SSD, SATA 6G - 60 GB
1x Super Flower Leadex 80 Plus Platinum 8Pack Edt. PSU - 2000W
8x BitFenix Spectre PWM 120mm Lüfter - schwarz

for a total price of 3519€.

I guess the 4x P104 GPU's would be shit for cracking.

What do you think?

p104-100 = gtx 1070
p106-100 = gtx 1060
p106-90 = gtx 1050

GTX 1070s are great for cracking, the problem with the p104/p106 cards is they are for mining/data work only and have no video output so they lose a lot of their resale value and right now they are usually equal in price to a gtx 1070 which will have much better resale value. In the US I can find gtx 1070 for $200 and on facebook marketplace sometimes even for $150. If you can get cheap shipping from china then It's possibly worth it as they can be bought for $125 for the p104 and $60 for the p106-100

As for everything else, the price seems too high for me especially if you consider buying used equipment which can be picked up for great prices. For example:

p104-100 = 125

Keep in mind that hash cracking is not mining so I'd advise to get a good CPU and more RAM. It's recommended to go for RAM >= VRAM. Maybe you'll find Hardware section on hashcat's forum helpful https://hashcat.net/forum/forum-13.html

1. Sounds very heavily overpriced

2. Weak CPU, not suited for gaming

3. GPU's not suited for gaming, the 1050 TI is supposed to be the gaming card? Lmao.

4. Not enough RAM

5. Only 4GB of VRAM for each card while a 2060 will have 6GB per card

Don't forget about huge big disc storage for dictionaries and wordlists and rules creation. It's often overlooked. 2TB is my starting point.

Forget buying new GPUs, much cheaper getting GTX1080 cards from eBay as great for cracking and gaming. If you, can, get GTX1080 Ti cards.

4-6 of those in an open-air case with USB3 risers your sorted.
