My DIY Ethereum Mining Rig (with AMD graphics cards)

Vote Here if you want to see a full guide:
I built this rig 3 months ago, and she’s been mining both Ethereum and ZCash (depending on which one is profitable at the time).
Setup (Roughly $1000 USD for whole setup):
2x AMD RX 480
1x AMD RX 280 (bought this one used!)
Processor AMD FX – 6300
Power Supply – Antec Gold 1000W
RAM – 8 GB DDR 3
Hard disk – 128 SSD

Yield (Zcash OR Ether)
* No overclocking – Don’t want to break my cards
* Zcash Hashrate : 870 h/s ($6.66 USD/ DAY)
* Ethereum Hashrate: 60 Mh/s ($5.07)
