You wanna do serious mining or just want some supplemental income off a card you plan on using for gaming as well?

Best card for gpu mining right now is the radeon vii which is capable of 90MH/s and comes at 300w stock but can be undervolted to 230watts without losing performance. It costs 930 Canadian

They discontinued the VII, I ended up getting a Vega 64 for 300 bucks (I got lucky). Big Navi next year gunna kill it though, plus the new intel cards might be interesting.

You can still get the radeon vii. I actually am waiting on one from Amazon right now. The new navi cards are apparently terrible at mining from everything I've read but it may just take some time to optimize although I'm not going to hold my breath

The issue is number of compute units, it only 40 units which means it has lower tflop than the vega 64 (and lower tdp) but they haven't made the big die version yet. Unit to unit its more efficient because of the newer architecture plus smaller manufacturing process (7nm vs 14nm). Plus by the time it comes out next hear there hopefully will be some changes made to mining software to optimize for the cards.

Mining on video cards is practically dead at this point. Also from what I hear the Navi cards are going to be ass at mining

All navi results suck for mining. I mine on a rx580 and it gets me 20 Canadian a month if I leave it running non stop. I paid 150 for the card used online which is a bit less than half price new so if i never turn my PC off I can make my money back in 8 months also accounting for my power being included in my rent. If I was paying for power it would double the time for me to pay off the equipment and that's not even accounting for the increased level of difficulty that goes along with mining over time making it even more risky.

But I bought my card to play borderlands 3 and the new doom when it comes out. The fact that it can mine in the off time is just a bonus and again its still only 20 bucks a month. It's just a hobby and let's me play amateur day trader a bit for fun with negligable funds with no real investment into mining specifically.

Buying an entire rig specifically for mining with GPUs or even asic's today is not profitable when factoring in equipment costs cause you'll spend 2 years trying to break even and even then there's no guarantee. Everyone invested in mining today is just praying there's going to be another boom and in the meantime pounding sand.

If you got a decent gpu you use for gaming first that has a good reported hashrate then put it to work when you're not using it and squeeze a few dollars out of it a month just for fun, otherwise I probably wouldn't bother

This is why I ask if there's room for an economical in-home machine for turning excess power (Assuming you produce your own electricity here) into a stored value.

I don't think it's economically viable to do any sort of crypto mining with video cards.
