Bitcoin Gold is running the Equihash algorithm (used by other well known coins such as ZCash, Zclassic, ZenCash, Hush, Komodo, etc). Since it is running on Equihash, NVIDIA GPU's are the best choice to mine Bitcoin Gold.

Careful selection of equipment is crucial to the success of your mining rig. In terms of Graphics Cards, above is a list of the best cards, out right now, based on high-to-low price.
AMD vs NVIDIA
The ongoing debate in terms of which GPU is better is very subjective. Ultimately, it depends on how long you want to wait for your ROI (return on investment). AMD cards are cheaper, have more community support for
modding, as well as increased performance.
Right out of the box however, NVIDIA cards usually beats it by hashrates.
A motherboard is a piece that can be easily overlooked. You must make sure that the Motherboard can support the GPU's you'll be placing or you'll end up with more issues.
- ASRock 970 Extreme4 Mainboard
- ASRock H61 Pro B/H81
- ASRock Z97 Anniversary
Unless you plan on mining with your CPU as well, there is no need for it to be fast or expensive.
- AMD FX 8320 Octa-Core Processor
- Intel Celeron G1820/Socket 1150
- Intel Celeron G1840
8GB is ideal, but you can get away with 4GB if you're using ETHOS or Command-Line-Driven Linux.
- Parallel Miner Case
- Any of the Rackmount Cases
Power Supply and Consumption
If your rig is using less than six cards, a 1200W PSU is sufficient. It is IMPORTANT to note that having too much wattage can blow your rig(?) so calculating power consumption is a must.
