Question Can someone help me build a 6 GPU mining rig (excluding the gpus) for 400$?

Feb 13, 2021
Hello i am trying to build my first GPU mining rig (Motherboard, CPU, Ram, Mining frame, Powersupply and GPU risers) for a 6 card build. I was wondering if someone could help me build that for 400$ not including the GPU's. I am newer to crypto mining but have spent months learning the ins and the outs now i want to build my first rig. I have 450$ budget for what i mentioned above. I'd appreciate any help with a parts list if anyone knows what would work. Thank you.


For a six card set up, you power requirements alone are likely to exceed your budgetary requirements. I'd probably be looking at an ATX form-factor motherboard with 4-6 PCI-Ex1 expansion slots. I would not worry about it being the latest generation of processor. Something like this as a starting point:

As you can see, you're already past 75% of your budget and you still haven't looked into riser cards, the mining case, or the power requirements.
