Multirig vs Single Rig

Would It be better to buy lots of cheap 4 core computers to plot are to buy one good computer to plot?

Rig 1
CPU: i5 4570
Ram: 4 GB DDR3
SSD: Crucial 1 TB MX500 SSD
OS: 120GB Kingston SSD
PSU: Corsair RM850X

Rig 2
CPU: i3 8100
Ram: 8 GB DDR4
SSD: Intel 660p NVME SSD 1TB
PSU: Aresgame AGS850

Rig 1 you will only be able to plot 1 at a time.

Rig 2 you will be able to plot 2 at a time.

In both your RAM is the limiting factor.

Your correct my 4gb of ram was to low to mine 1 plot in que ended up freezing the computer. Recommended ram size for each plot?

Which powerful rigs are you referring to like i7 10700 or ryzen 7 3700x?

i would love a threadripper 3990x but realistically a 3950x 32GB RAM and 2TB ssd would be a decent plotter imo

Wonder how many plots you would get with that beast :grinning:

I’ll tell you when I win some chia and build one lol
