    Help with buying a gpu

    I appreciate everything. I did find a webpage a biddy of mine sent to me gpucheck and it did show that the Ryzen 1600 vs a 3600 with a 2070 did bottleneck where the 3600 obviously had much higher FPS. I also did a comparison with both cpus with the 5700xt and same result. their is a bottleneck...

    Maingear and Sood Defending a Defenseless Position on Selling Crypto Boxes?

    Mining has put a damper on any new build for me until prices drop. I'm still running an 8350/7970 for right now.

    is the GTX 770 worth it?

    Not how he works unfortunately. He won't give anything away for free. There is always a cost but I did talk him down to 50 and i sold my 660 for 35. I picked up the 770 and I'll use it till taxes and im gonna build a 1070 setup. The wife and i talked and we're good on a new rig

    is the GTX 770 worth it?

    i was going to until he offered me the 770. I sold my 660 today for 35 so i figured that out of pocket would cost me 40 bucks on the 770 which I thought was not totally a bad deal since it is an upgrade over my 660. My wife told me if i can wait for taxes then i could build a completely new rig...
