It makes no-sense to buy hardware to mine at this point. All of "easy stuff" is gone now and you will end-up making a net-loss. The worst point is that you cannot "easily" convert those crypotucurrencies over to "USD" which makes it kinda pointless for USA-types.
AMD, etailer vendors and utility companies are the only ones who are laughing to the bank.
My boss came up with a bitcoin mining scheme that would work on even old hardware, using a government plan that pays farmers to produce solar power (produce the power at a profit, and use it to power mining machines for second profit). Never did it though.
