I would like to try Monero CPU mining on a new Linux box I would like to build. More memory the better for CryptoNight algorithm, right? Is there an upper limit at a point where more memory is not effective. I'm thinking should I add 32GB? 64GB? Or 128GB? Would I need a particulary fast CPU? I was suggested a 1x AMD Ryzen 7 1700X or 1x AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Those are 3.8 GHz, and 3.7 GHz respectively.
Is this high-end configuration worth it as far as recouping my investment. I'm also considering renting out my processor power on the Golem project. I'm sure I'll need to include a GPU for that.
Thanks for any thoughts the community may have for me.
