Good question, a gaming PC can consume lots of electricity while running, but the specific wattage highly depends on your hardware. Salad will run your GPU or CPU at peak performance, so find the power consumption for your particular model. For example, an Nvidia RTX 2070 uses around 215W at peak. Assuming that you pay 10 cents/kWh, running it for an hour would cost you ~2.15 cents.
Luckily, Salad’s hourly earnings should outweigh that cost for the 2070, but this might not hold true for every GPU/CPU, or every electric bill. So be sure to check your local electricity rates and compare these costs to your earnings. You can use this tool provided by one of our Mining Pool suppliers to calculate average earnings for your GPU or CPU nicehash.com/profitability-calculator.
