Cryptocurrency Mining GPU Selector
Maximize your mining profitability. Simply enter your graphics card budget and maximum number of graphics cards and then select "Run." It will show you the type and number of graphics cards that you should use to mine each hash algorithm with maximum profitability.
The maximum number of video cards (GPUs) can be spread over more than one system or motherboard. For example, if you have two motherboards capable of supporting 6 graphics cards each, then you would enter 12 as your maximum number of graphics cards. This of course assumes that you are willing to operate more than mining rig at the same time.
If you want to see a list of video cards of an optimal card type, just select a row in the results. It will direct you to the relevant section of our GPU Guide.
You can select "Show Profitability" to see the most profitable cryptocurrencies for the respective card type and number of cards for each hash algorithm shown in the results below. This will open the Whattomine calculator in a separate browser tab and automatically set the inputs for each hash algorithm to save you a ton of time and reduce mistakes! A new tab within the Whattomine calculator, showing your selected budget and maximum number of cards, will be created each time you select "Show Profitability" so that you can quickly and easily compare the profitability for different budgets and/or numbers of max cards.
Note that the settings within the Whattomine calculator are overridden, so for example the card quantities at the top of the page will all read "0" and no card will appear to be activated. This is normal. However, you can tweak the other settings such as hashrate, power, energy cost, etc. and re-run the Whattomine calculator to see the profitability with those new settings. Also, coins corresponding to certain algorithms can be excluded from the results by clicking on the blue button for the algorithm that you want to exclude and re-running the Whattomine calculator.
