    Too late to start mining?

    Usable life = average 3-4 year span before these become largely unusable. If I was limping by with a June 2015 980ti right now I'd want the next generation card in order to play the next battlefield game. You'd have to believe 1080ti's will be relevant into 2020 and "paid off" by then if mining...

    Bitcoin Keeps Pushing Ahead & Coinbase Gives Data to the IRS

    It's really not hard to do your taxes correctly and depreciate assets. Talk to anyone with multiple rental properties. Turbotax/h&r should create a CRYPTO deluxe version for next year's tax season. If you're making $2000+ a month, it's not a hobby.

    Is buying an Nvidia GPU today a bit foolish, if Volta is (said to be) coming soon?

    There are also pre-builts pc's now with 1070/1080/rx580 for decent prices. Best Buy has an alienware i7-8700 water cooled 16gb ddr4 with 1070 for around 1100.

    Lanjaeger Drying Rack Rig

    We're in the same boat. I updated my shipping address on one zotac 1070ti order and the estimated date went from Mar 2 to Mar 12-29. I'm impressed they didn't cancel these.

    Too late to start mining?

    As long as the ROI period is less than the usable life of a gpu it will not be too late.

    Is buying an Nvidia GPU today a bit foolish, if Volta is (said to be) coming soon?

    I would buy anything I needed at a reasonable price. You can still get an $8XX 1080ti from amazon or evga if you put forth a little effort. I'm of the opinion that Nvidia recently decided just to refresh their current lineup with ddr6 and may not ship anything until summer.

    Crypto and gpu price going back

    Third. I'm excited by the changes with mainstream hardware. Common 94%+ psu's, less junk with 900w stickers. There's a lot to be excited for in the rendering world and I think people who are upset should go play with their xbox.

    power connectors to risers

    I use every style riser and have had problems with each, but don't use SATA. Having said that, I used a 2 SATA crimped to 6 pin as the 2nd connector on a 1080 for awhile and my house didn't burn down.

    I took my first pill today and it is as advertised. I didn't eat a goddamn thing, lol. I'm surprised this forum was like the 5th hit on google, but since I post here a lot, i figured i'd throw my experience in.

    30GB+ vista ultimate install?

    Hey guys I just installed Vista Ultiate 64 bit and over 30GB of my hard drive is taken up. Does this have something to do with the fact that I had 2x hard drives connected when I installed vista? I have only installed a few programs like device drivers/managers. I moved from 1x 18GB...

    ok ok ok wow sorry there is an easy button its in bios it's called like "memory optimizer" or something stupid, and you have to enable it if you're using 64 bit OS... then it works.. jesus, that was easy.. but hard. You'd think bios could just do something like that for me... nahhhh

    Hey guys, I've been frustrated by this all day, and need any suggestions you may have. I just took out 3 gigs of OCZ ram in exchange for 8 gigs of patriot memory. Vista still shows 3200 mb of ram even though it shows 8200 mb or something available. I cleared the cmos but all that did was...

    Vista hates me, I hate vista.

    thanks for the info.. when i formatted the scsi, it made me install xp to install vista. I'll get the vlite and try to get rid of unnecessary stuff so I have more room on C:, thanks a ton. If you know a better way to install Vista in the smallest amount of room for my 18 gig SCSI, that would...

    Vista hates me, I hate vista.

    PROBLEM SOLVED. The problem was - i had XP installed on the SCSI and also an old install on the last partition of my SATA drive. When i formated the scsi drive, it used the XP install on the sata to install vista. Vista was using both drives to work, which didnt work. I unhooked the...

    Vista hates me, I hate vista.

    thanks for the replies.. it took from my original post till now to get back on the forum (lots of hard boots) .. I guess I will try to update bios with a thumb drive. Besides that I'm really lost in all this reconfiguring. I'm only running 1 gig ram but that shouldn't matter much. My...

    Vista hates me, I hate vista.

    It's a tough relationship. I installed vista home premium upgrade lastnight. Took me 4-5 hours. Vista runs like my computer was a 486dx2 66 (not even mx technology). So what the hell is wrong? Computer's performance.. hard drive score = 2.2??? Can't update bios on my p5w dh deluxe...

    Make me feel better about upgrading plz

    I read somewhere else though that some guy set up a 25gig partition for vista and he said he could have done without 10gigs of it.. I should find that post again. I'm not even sure if my XP here is activated or not it's been so long since I installed it and i do my updates through firefox...
