An ASIC should be OK, if you can get one.  GPU / FGPA will generate more
than the electricity but will unlikely pay or the hardware.

But you are thinking about a bitcoin only paradigm.

There is room for the coinspace to be 100 or 1000 times bigger.  If GNU had
started a coin 1-2 years ago I think all the major mining pools would have
merge mined it, making it more attack resilient.  They are generally good

If FBX could come up with a creative hack to make useful distributed coin
system, you could lower hardware costs.

I'm convinced you could lower hardware and shipping costs to zero, as the
network grows.
