It really depends on how much you're willing to spend. Low end Let's talk about the very smallest investment you could make for mining bitcoins: a Raspberry Pi. It can do 200,000 hashes per second, which might sound like a lot, but actually it's about 0.000001% of the total network hashrate. Power: 3.75 W Hashrate: 0.2 MHash/s Cost: $35 (Note: this doesn't mean a RPi is useless for mining. You can use it as a host for your ASIC/FPGA miners.) Mid range Okay, CPU mining is bad, but what if we use GPU's? Let's say we use a $162 graphics card, the 5830 from AMD. Let's throw in another $187 for case/motherboard/power supply. (Based off of this list I just threw together.) Power: 175 W Hashrate: 302 Mhash/s Cost: $349 High end Okay, let's get something specifically designed for bitcoin mining - the ModMiner Quad. It costs $1070, but it needs a host, so let's use a raspberry pi f...
