1st time simple hash cracking setup
Core i3-7100 2-Core 3.9GHz, Radeon R9 270X, 8GB Gaming PC

Would the above setup be ok for a 1st time password cracker...

I dont need to worry about power consumption...

and whats the best gpu i could put into a i3 pc.

Im looking to not spend over £200 GBP on a small setup.

and from the above I expect about 
150 kh/s  = 
572 400 000 an hour =
13 737 600 000 a day

which seems plenty fast enough for an 8 digit password All Caps at least

Thats gotta be better than my 268 h/s 


any ideas for a small rig for under 200 quid.

Radeon R9 270X is not so good.
Look for a 1070 (good price & Mh/s ratio)
