As long as the value of the coins remain then yes mate, obviously you'd spend that first year recouping the cost of the rig!

At current prices yes, That's the reason why people are mining, At the moment you get your return back within a year and then you've basically got a free card. (4 months or so ago the ROI on an AMD 480 was just 3 months and that's the reason why they were OOS everywhere and going for silly money)

The profit has been constantly going down tho (although it's slowing down now) but if the prices stayed the same then you would get back what you put in by a year easily.

If you manage to mine the right coin at the right time you can make the money back much quicker.

Might give it a go instead of selling the remnants of my rig. Could stick the 380 in there until I see what the crack is. I know the 380 won't be very profitable, but as I own it already...

LOL thanks.

Your right with a 380 not being the most profitable card but mining it at the moment clears around 75p a day with Monero coin or 50p a day with Ethereum (if both on the full 24hrs) so it's a decent return on an order card. (I've got a 380DD sat in my drawer I'm unable to use because the 1080 and 1080ti take up all my pci-e power leads, talk about 1st world problems)

Feel like I am missing out on some easy money here! If I had known about this when building my rig last year I could have gone for a higher end GPU and made back that difference quite easily it seems. Bet if I upgraded now the market would crash tongue
