    GPU Prices dropping?

    They're going to keep going up. When something isn't a deflationary asset and instead becomes an investment that will payoff there's really no ceiling to the price. Go look on r/ethermine people are still blowing five figures on a rig because they think it'll pay off before the summer. It may...

    GPU Prices dropping?

    Well actually I've won about five, some I passed on. You should really enter, takes about 30 seconds. I would hold your breath on the evga list. Last report I saw had them still in September. I was able to get a 3060 from them on launch because I entered right when the list opened. The other...

    Newegg shuffle, I've been selected four times through them since it began including Tuesday which netted a 3060 ti.

    GPU Prices dropping?

    Lol actually money is my main issue. I've had to defer a few purchases (mainly 3090s). My main point is gamers should be able to get one 3000 series if a punk ass bitch miner like me can half a dozen.

    GPU Prices dropping?

    I honestly don't get the issue with people getting cards. Since January I've been able to get, 3x 3070's from various vendors, 1 3060 Ti, 1 3060 and 1 3090 all from either newegg or best buy. It's not hard, I didn't need to dedicate hours or days of my life. Enter newegg shuffle and know the...

    Official EVGA Ampere Queue Thread

    wow I'm super fucked then. I submitted for the queue in early Jan. I'm probably never going to get card at this rate. Maybe when the 4000 series launches I'll be able to buy one second hand like a peon.

    It's just taking a little while longer, rtx 2080 supers are $460 directly from evga b stock so the 2080 tis turn is coming.

    Used GPU Market Crash of 2020

    1080tis are 350 on evga b stock. So all the pieces are coming into play for 2080 tis to be much cheaper. For 350 still not worth it imho considering an extra 150 will get you 2080 ti performance.

    Imho the prices are reasonable which makes me think AMD has something competitive coming out as well. Nvidia wouldn't leave a dollar on the table if they didn't have to.

    Used GPU Market Crash of 2020

    You should probably look at what's happening on eBay....yesterday 900 to 1kish, today 600ish. The 2000 series didn't really overthrow the 1000 series. When they launched the 2080 was on par with the 1080 ti. The 2080 launched for $700. That's not the case this time...

    Used GPU Market Crash of 2020

    Ooffff the 2080 Ti's just catered fast. I feel bad for anyone who just bought one in August. Of they paid 1,000 they just took a nice haircut. They kept their value really well for the entire cycle but with the 3070 offering the same performance there's little reason to spend the same amount of...

    'NBA 2K21' Will Cost $70 USD for PS5 and Xbox Series X. Is this the new normal?

    No prices increased. They just didn’t pass the savings onto you. They’re right video game pricing has remained static, but the cost of distribution has plummeted to pennies. Back in the day with cartridges and big box retail there were associated costs and markups to be passed onto you. Now...

    any molex to sata adapter will do. I felt better with those than the tape trick. Drive works flawlessly with any power supply. It also depends on the power supply, some work fine others need an adapter.

    Asrock X470D4U (first Ryzen server board?)

    No all ryzen CPUs support ECC. It's up to the motherboard oem on whether it will work. Most support it by default. ASRock supports it across almost all their boards. AMD isn't playing shitty games like Intel does. The pros are long term lower TDP chips I believe. This boards checks all my...

    X470 ECC Support

    For NAS users that use ZFS it's apparently pretty instrumental in data integrity. This is the only reason I buy ECC. Other than that the standard stuff is fine.

    X470 ECC Support

    That was a great response. I went with AsRock as it's listed on there specs specifically but had I known this I would have considered gigabyte too. Please communicate to gigabyte engineering or marketing to put a little effort into this. With the lack of workstation boards from Supermicro or...

    AMD Ryzen 7 2700X - $289 @ Ebay

    I bit last Tuesday. It look them until Friday to ship and they used UPS ground, which is the slowest of the shipping. It will be here Thursday.... so almost a week and a half to get it. Ugh.

    Help Me in Leveling Up from 1080p

    I'm a fan of closure. I got two LG 27ud69-w's. Could i have gotten one? Yeah prob but this is hardocp not butterysoftocp. Both came in perfect. I like both panels.

    Help Me in Leveling Up from 1080p

    Ok so back to me. I seem to have struck a nerve or two by referring to 2k. I somehow triggered a few of you. SO, I've decided to go with freesync, g-sync monitors are too few and too expensive. No 1080 TI for me :(. I also want dual monitors I think. I'm willing to wait for graphics card to...

    Help Me in Leveling Up from 1080p

    Figure out the panels first and then the video card(s). 1080 TIs are getting cheaper (though no freesync but not a huge deal for a once in a while gamer).

    Time to update my monitor setup (my least favorite thing due to panel lottery). I'm currently rocking two 24" dell ultrasharps (1080p). They're from 2009, so they've had a good life. I mainly due some office work, movie watching and would like to game more but I'm not hardcore. I'd like it to...

    The morals of selling used GPUs

    Yeah this. If you stockpiled insulin and then waited for a shortage to sell it at inflated prices you would be in fact a dick. Making people spend a few more hundred on a graphics card so they can play counter strike just makes you a businessman. One is intensely needed to live the other is a...

    12 EVGA 1060 6GB mining card LOT

    Just presenting the facts on both sides. I hope your conscience is clean, you can price the cards however you like, no one says you need to honor MSRP, hell not even microcenter is anymore. The market dictates the price. Hell you could price them $1,000 per card, doesn't mean you'll get it but...

    12 EVGA 1060 6GB mining card LOT

    The difficulty argument wasn't based on revenue but on how many coins I make per month. I've seen how many coins i make per month drop by 40%. I realize the price will fluctuate good or bad. Difficulty has gone from 19 to 26, ~38% increase from Jan 1 to Jan 30. I agree that this 40% jump a month...

    Keep hearing that but no one really posts the alternative. The issue is by the time I mine enough to be useful the bubble has already popped. Eth has been fairly stable in terms of price. Misread. All other points still valid though. $435 is pretty steep for used mining cards but if he gets...

    12 EVGA 1060 6GB mining card LOT

    If anyone is thinking about buying this note you need to add in difficulty increases. I'm already down 40% in January alone. 180 days is literally THE BEST CASE SCENARIO. More than likely you're looking at 12 to 18 months. By then you'll likely be eeking out small amounts of money.

    So you want a 1080 TI but...(long way to get one)

    This is going to be over soon. Ethereum difficulty is going to make scaling to the point of profits very difficult (at home). I have two miners (11 gpus total). The amount I've mined has gone from 1.25 coins per month to 0.8 since the beginning of this year. In another month or so I expect that...

    AT&T, Comcast Say GOP Tax Bill Will Mean $1,000 Bonuses for Employees
