        I really wish to mine even just 4BTC to buy myself a better PC which can profit me for better BTC and upgrade in the future with the same intention of upgrading the pc for better miner. *sigh* can't even start because i'm afraid to mine in laptop which is only i3 and might stress and burn the cpu, this is the only electronic device that i own. *sigh*

        Uses dual xeons for 8 cards 16x speed each. The PCIe bandwidth isn't important.
        I run 10 cards at 1x on an intel i3 and it runs just fine.

                                        100% scam. a bunch of fake profiles and they keep saying the name over and over. Having someone trade for you is a terrible idea anyway.
