    HF FS/T scam - thoughts / a nod to the community

    Use F&F with extreme caution. I normally don’t bother with sellers who insist on it, good reputation or not. I’d rather pay the extra percentage (assuming the deal is still good) if that means I have some small degree of buyer protection. You only need to get burned once to lose thousands...

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    Y axis = relative performance, which to be honest is completely meaningless. I want to see numbers, not "relative performance."

    EVGA no longer making GPUs!

    The whole reason to buy EVGA was American support. The few times I needed them, they were awesome. Welcome to the era of shitty Chinese/Indian support where you will wait 2 weeks for a poorly worded response to clarify your issue. Fuck man. This sucks. Good job nVidia, you short sighted...

    Extreme Cooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    To be completely honest, the "extreme cooling" mods have been out of style for a long time. This thread last had interesting entries nearly 10 years ago. Off the shelf cooling solutions have gotten much better over the years, and CPUs/GPUs are so fast that it hardly warrants the effort for...

    Extreme Cooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    Right? At first I thought someone necroed the ghetto mod thread. This new entry is about as extreme as a glass of milk.

    Selling Steam Games

    OEM keys often come "free" with a purchase of hardware, it was a figure of speech. The part of what I said that is relevant is "regardless of how they are obtained." It doesn't matter how someone got that Steam/Origin/Whatever key. If it's not violating TOS, they are free to sell them and you...

    OEM keys have market value, regardless of how they are obtained. Deal with it.

    Selling Steam Games

    Most of the time, people have gotten either codes from a package deal and they are selling an unactivated code. You can't unactivate a game on Steam. You gotta sell the entire account.

    Hey. I purchased that keyboard at a gaming event second hand sometime in 2014. Unfortunately I wouldn't have been able to provide you with that information even at the time I sold it to you 6 years ago. Sorry about the USB hub, good luck.

    How to handle this situation....

    This is why used cards that still have a transferable warranty command a higher price than cards out of warranty. Plus he said he was mining with it? Tough shit. Only he knows what he did with it. Not on you OP.

    Thought the rules of this forum was not to be a storefront to make a profit.

    We said that [H]ardforum is not a storefront, we didn't say anything about profit. We're just stating that our FS/FT forum is not a place for you to unload your 20 3080s that have never seen use, never even been unwrapped, that you purchased with a bot for double the MSRP. That is not within...

    Dead Thread My bad

    See rule 26. Do not post something for sale that you do not have physically on hand. Saying you have 2 items "on the way" and you can "run to the store to totally buy this thing that's hard to get" is not a viable FS post.

    FS: Alienware AW3418DW, Austin TX (Local Only)

    For sale is my Alienware AW3418DW ultrawide monitor. I am selling this monitor mainly because I've decided that ultra-wide resolution is just not for me (just too much issues with certain games, particularly older ones), and I just picked up an Acer XB323U that checks all the boxes that I was...

    Is International Parcel Forwarding safe for a Seller?

    The Western Union comment was a joke. Anyone requesting a western union money order online is scamming you. PayPal cares if the buyer received what they payed for. If you ship to a parcel forwarder, and it doesn’t arrive at the buyers true location, PayPal considers itself being removed from...

    Is International Parcel Forwarding safe for a Seller?

    The use of a parcel forwarding company is a bit of a red flag for me. Paypal will only protect you to the point of where the package arrives (which is the parcel forwarder address), and not where the parcel forwarder will be ultimately sending it. So if the parcel forwarder "loses" the...

    How this forum looks currently

    It's a pandemic. There's a shortage of everything, and manufacturers have stopped making anything for weeks. Sellers who may have sold in normal times are holding on to what they have. Sellers who are willing to sell and have at least a 7th grade education understand the concept of supply...

    Thanks responding in this thread. All I have to say is to have some empathy for your buyers in today's climate. This can be avoided if you respond to them back promptly, even if you have no positive update. 99% of the buyers and sellers here are understanding, and know that they aren't...

    That's up to an admin, I'm working on that. What I can directly do is mark nagmier as a bad trader, which is now done. He has failed to respond to me as well, the chance is passed. OP, congrats on getting your refund. Also, for OP and anyone paying attention, The first red flag was...
