In the recent buzz with Bitcoins and alternative currencies there have been numerous individuals and groups buying the hardware needed to "hash" out their profits, so to speak. I am one of these individuals.

I may be getting to a point soon where I'm going to want to run a mining rig of my own which may put out approx 4000 watts in 1 room. I'm no expert, and I assume if I was to run that much power through the outlets in 1 room I'd create an inferno inside the walls.. leading to the burning of my home or at the very least frying all my equipment.

So my question comes in three parts:
1) Is it possible to run 4000w continuous in 1 room of the house?
2) If it is possible, how can it be done as SAFELY and efficiently as possible?
3) How much might an electrician charge me to make it all good to go?

I want to run 10x GPU's (graphics cards) in this room each running at about 300 watts each drawing around 10-12 amps each. Any advice on this would be EXTREMELY helpful and appreciated! Thank You!

P.S. I apologize if this is not posted in the correct place.
