Hi experts! I have read a few bitcoin sites and have a few questions.

I like to start mining bitcoins.

If electricity is not a cost to me, where can I buy GPU/ASIC hardware to build machines and are the softwares plug and play? What is the cost of the machine?

How many bitcoins can be mine within a week or two?

Thanks - saw it.

I now have the choice to build my own rig (GPU like HD7950x2) to mine litecoin or buy ASIC from kncminer/butterflylabs to mine bitcoin.

In terms of cost, seems like building my own rig is cheaper?

(please do not take electricity into consideration for the purpose of this discussion)
