    I'm updating my old computer for litecoin mining. At first, I'm going to start with around 600€ (for both new PSU and GPU(s)). Any suggestions on what single / what set of GPU to buy first?

    (Power consumption is not an importance, my electricity is fixed-price)

    HD4770 - It shouldn't matter when I'm getting a new card anyways. Remember: This computer is not for gaming or for any other use. Purely for mining.
