    A friend recently turned me on to a Crypto project coming in the next few months called Raptoreum (https://raptoreum.com).

    I have mined a few others with a single 1080ti but I want to build out a mining rig for this project. I am not sure though what to expect as it has a new algorithm that uses x16r and CNv 1 through 8. I have no idea what to expect should I be building a CPU monster with Ryzen or more for GPU?

    Just build a rig, it's probably a waste of money either way(cpu v gpu).

    I am starting to think just go with a beefy CPU like the upcoming Ryzen and 8 GPU, still have not decided on AMD or NVIDIA.

    I would not buy any brand new retail cards for mining at this point. Get some used 1060 6GB or RX 580 8GB, and go with that, if you intend to start mining full time, but it's no longer such a good idea at this point, unless BTC goes to over $10k, or ETH goes to $200+.
