A Little Help Please – Currently setting up a mining rig

Hi all you wonderful people, I am after a little advise.


I decided to try out a little mining with my gaming PC just like a lot of other people but need to understand i am doing it right.

Can the below question be answered if you know the answer it would be much appreciated.


1. Motherboard: Gigabyte 970A-UD3P (How many GPU’s can this run, I understand i have 6 PCIe ports but believe only one is 16x and if so to mine using a GPU does it have to be connected to a x16 PCIe slot)?)?
2. Power Supply: I currently have a Corsair CX500, This only has x2 6+2 power connections and as i run a GTX1080Ti OC it requires both supply’s. (Is there a way i can use the CX500 to power a GTX1060 6GB & GTX1080Ti?

I am contemplating selling the whole PC and then buy the correct parts but want to find out if there is any point?


Thanks in advance everyone 🙂
