Building a rig looking for advice on GPU's

    Hi All,

    I have a few cpu miners running claymore (monero) and a CPU /GPU rig running both claymore CPU (monero) and dual coin GPU miner (Eth and Dcr).

    I am looking at building a more GPU based rig. I have a decent chassis (old rack mount DVR) with an Asus P8Z77-V LX2 Board. This board has:
    1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (blue) *1
    1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black)
    2 x PCIe 2.0 x1
    2 x PCI

    i5 cpu (cant remember the exact model)

    akasa venom 750w psu

    Hdd can be any, I have both plate and ssd available so will probably go with a 120 gb ssd

    I think this should take at least 3 decent cards.

    I have 4 chassis cooling fans built in 1 cpu and GPU's will have their own.

    Any recommendations on cards for this config?

    Power is essentially free so not a huge issue.
