Am new in this mining job but i will try to ask some constructive questions :-). Am planning to mine Monero / ZEC and maybe ETH. To do so, am planning to install some graphic card that i can afford and at first this would be something in Radeon RX560 Gigabyte 4gb range. I will use one graphic card setup.
1.) Can i use this card for mining xmr / zec, and how much hashes would i get with this or similar GPU ?
2.) What low power consumption graphic card would you suggest to get 5000 or more hashes ?
3.)Am looking at this calculator https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/calculator/xmr?HashingPower=5000&HashingUnit=H%2Fs&PowerConsumption=200&CostPerkWh=0.12
I am not quite sure how all this works but if i understand currency, one can mine some amount of currency (daily,monthly,yearly) and if in this time, XMR or ZEC get some peak value ( fast jump ), this is recorded as extra income.
Shortly, if the XMR value is let's say $400 and in few days this value jumps to $600, miner gets nice income, but at the same time, complexity gets higher and miner needs 20% higher hash power(stronger GPU), to keep his earnings level. Is this correct ? Or better, is this the situation with XMR / ZEC currency ?
4.) what wallet and what sw would you suggest ?. Am running desktop pc with linux ubuntu...
Best regards and thank you all for future answers !
