I used to mine earnhoney on my 3930k, but that was back when the difficulty was far lower than it is now. I recall it would get $25/month or so back then, but the difficulty varied a lot so not that easy to calculate.

I still mine Swagbucks with the motherboard from a broken Nexus 7, the ARM CPU being low power mean that even though it only makes about $10/month at current difficulty, it's still profitable to run.

I'm mining Monero (XMR) with my two Ryzen CPUs. I get about $30/mo. A 650W is more than enough to mine with a GTX 1080 with a 5800x. My concern would be the age. It's already 13 years old.
