We are talking about 6 GPU Ethereum Mining Rig Guide / Low Budget. Ethereum mining is profitable these days many people are using ethereum for mining but there is some huge investment on start-up, so what you need is a detailed guide about cheap ethereum mining rig with less budget. Once this rig is fully assembled and configured properly, it is capable of generating around 9,000$ yearly, and if you live in the Republic of Srpska, because of cheaper electric power costs, maybe even more.

Let's get started with step number 1...

1. Motherboard:

We need 6 GPU-supported motherboards for this mining rig, So we are using the AsRock H81 Pro BTC Motherboard because this board has the capability to run 6 GPUs. This is the cheap and the best motherboard for an ethereum mining rig, It will cost you around 289$. You can get it from any computer store or online from here.

2. Processor (CPU):

You also need a processor to boot your system without this you can't boot your system. So as we know we are using AsRock H81 Pro BTC Motherboard with this motherboard the recommendation for you is to buy Intel Celeron G1840 Processor this will cost 59$ something, it's cheap and you will easily found on google. Also, you can buy from here.

3. Graphics Cards:

We are using 6 graphics cards in this guide but it is totally up to you how many graphics cards you want to use. We are using Radeon RX 580 x6 graphics cards, it consumes less electricity and they will produce 24-25 mh/s of mining speed. It will cost you around 300$ for each graphics card, which you will get it from here.

4. Power Supply:

For Power Supply, the recommendation is at least 1200 W power supply for 6 GPU rig so we use Corsair HX1200i 1200 Watt Power Supply. This power supply is 80 Plus platinum Rated offers 1200 W of continuous power. It's the best choice to power up your ethereum mining rig. It will cost you around 259$, You will get it from here.

5. RAM:

We need just 4 GB RAM, it's enough for a mining rig. So we use Kingston 4 GB Ram, It will cost you around 30$ something, you can get from here.

6. Hard Drive:

We have just installed an operating system and some software for mining so the recommendation is 120 GB it's enough for ethereum mining rig, so we use SanDisk Solid State Drive 120GB, it will cost you around 60$. You will get it from here.

7. Powered Riser Cable:

This is used to connect the graphics card to the motherboard. It will cost you 7$ something, so we use DN Powered Riser Cable x16, which you can get it from here.

8. Case (optional):

The recommendation is you to build your own case rather than purchasing from someone. If you still want to buy, Google it.
