Those Ventus 2080 Ti listings now have 'call' for availability - $780 hmm. eVGA at $845 too. <$700 is may be coming to reality sooner than I thought (one more quarter?). And I was so ready to make fun of the wccftech starting the Ampere hype train so early.
If they say call, they're gone. :(

Saw those 2080 ti msi ones when still in stock but with shipping and taxes they were close to 880 for me. Too much dough for a used year old top tier card. Nvidia majorly f'ed up on the pricing with these, hoping AMD can box them back down next cycle. And my 1080 Ti SC2 is running like a dream anyways.....

These aren't used products, but open-box at their worst condition. A lot of times they are bnib. And they have full warranties from the day you buy them. The price comparison should be with new or open-box products vs used if you want to compare apples to apples.

Fair point, but spending $400 to go from 1080 Ti to 2080 Ti at this point seems like a waste, even at 3840x1600 resolution.

Oh, that's a good point, but I still remember when the 1080Ti was going for almost the price of a 2080Ti because of mining. :eek:

I have this.
https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16811219038?Item=N82E16811219038

So i can buy those SAS drives and plug and play? If so I never knew that lol

it looks like this inside case

these dropped to 317 o_O
https://www.cdw.com/product/seagate-16tb-7.2k-3.5in-sas-hdd-bst/5754625?pfm=srh


EDIT: while lookign for 6TB drives A LTO cartiridge showed up in search sop I went down this rabit hole.

and was reading this. I would love one of these lol. Later in video you see these auomaticed catitrdge systems and man are they fucking cook.

The speed are also incredable. I remember magetic cartridges in early 2000 and dont recall if they were these but they were slow as hell. These are crazy fast.

I wonder if you can get older generations on the cheap. I wouldn't mind archieving my old movies/TV/VC containers to this if I wasn't going to need them anytime soon.

The durability section doesn't really make complete sense in regards to the full pass is 44-136 end to ende passes?

Not trying to go off topic or anything but this was kinda cool so thouyght i would post it

With that chassis, you've got sas capability already, but you will need an sas capable controller, which if you're using that the way it was designed, you probably already have one by lsi, et al. :)

Yep, those 16TB drives dropped and I posted it on servethehome and they were gone in 48hrs, lol.

Yep, the LTO drives still rock, and also still command a pretty penny. The guys on servethehome in one thread I was reading once upon a time was recommending them to someone creating TB of day per day for transport between sites because of the speed.

It's unreal how cheap enterprise storage can be in the outlet. This 1TB 3.5" SATA HP Midline server drive is nearly $60 anywhere you look. And in the outlet, it's sitting here at $18, and I don't even think that's the lowest it's going to go. Even with shipping being $20, that's still a chunk off of the normal price and if you're already getting something, throwing it on for $18 is nothing:
https://www.cdw.com/product/hp-1tb-6g-sata-7.2k-3.5in-nhp-ety-hd/5677484?pfm=srh

They have a second one too that's currently at $28, but we know it's going to hit at least $18:
https://www.cdw.com/product/hp-1tb-6g-sata-7.2k-3.5in-nhp-ety-hd/5737859?pfm=srh

Wow, and I guess I missed that they have a few more at $30 that will also hit $18 or less at some point:

Even with a 5% discount the lowest 2080 TI is $1,176.99
Yep, their gpu prices haven't been that great since the 20xx series has come out. But keep checking it as those typically drop to around ~$800 if no one gets them before then.

Got some pretty nice prices on 2.5" drives too... pity that they're just notebook drives. I mean, I guess the prices for the sas drives might be good, but I don't know what they normally cost (other than a lot $$$)

Drive prices can be quite nice depending on what you're looking for and what they have in stock. There were a bunch of 16TB ones there for a song just a while back and I even got some 14TB drives at just over $300/ea, but then returned them as they didn't work with the hardware I wanted to use.

Sas stuff can be even cheaper as that eliminates all the consumer-class buyers so the price drops faster and further. I've actually picked up some 3.5" enterprise sas drives for 1/4 of the going price. :eek:

Ran into this evga gt 1030 that's been coming down slowly for the last few weeks and is now on the cheap side at $38 vs the usual almost $100. Probably will drop one more time, but I doubt it will hit below $30:
https://www.cdw.com/product/evga-geforce-gt-1030-2gb-gddr5-bstk/5775565?pfm=srh

And on a related note apparently Provantage has an msi gt 1030 that's currently sitting at $56.42 with free shipping. They seem to lower their price on certain items about $2 on some sort of interval, but I haven't quite figured them out yet:

Bumped into a couple of other deals.

1TB HP 'midline' 3.5" sata hdd for servers for $22 when the normal price for any new 1TB is double that and this particular HP part number is more like $60. I think this is the bottom for these and you can check it by watching if they drop off the outlet at this price. There's several of these in stock so you can then 'catch' the next batch at the lowest price:
https://www.cdw.com/product/hp-1tb-6g-sata-7.2k-3.5in-nhp-ety-hd/5747303?pfm=srh
https://www.cdw.com/product/hp-1tb-6g-sata-7.2k-3.5in-nhp-ety-hd/5747312?pfm=srh

If you have an HP Z4 G4 and want the memory cooler for less than the usual $60+, here it is for $34:
https://www.cdw.com/product/hp-z4-g4-memory-cooling-solution-bs/5760779?pfm=srh

I can't believe I didn't check here before buying a switch recently, as these 2 HP poe+ 24-port unmanaged are currently only $47, which may only have one more drop in them as they usually go for around $120. What's crazy about them (if the specs on cdw are right) is that they have a lifetime warranty with advance replacement:

Still show available on my phone mobile site. In stock, ships today.

I have an HP Office Connect 1820 and its probably the same thing as these, but with a couple 10GB ports - I think I paid about $130 for it. I use it for LAN parties. It works great now. I use 802.3ad teamed NICs to my inexpensive QNAP NAS and the setup has beem flawless once I figured out the configuration (or rather it just finally started working — a frustrating, but educational experience)
https://hardforum.com/threads/recom...with-lacp-for-nas-use-at-lan-parties.1961076/

At this price its a no brainer if in need for a nice managed switch! No fan, lifetime warranty, much lower power use than something like a Cisco switch.

Cheapest/lowest wattage. It is for a router and few misc low power devices.
For such a use, I think watching for standard sales on 500-650va cyberpower units from typical websites will do you better. You don't need pure sinewave for that anyway, and anything on cdw is likely to be outside of what would be considered cheap (having to pay to ship these would kill any savings too.) Keep in mind a higher VA rating means longer uptime, but if you're just trying to protect from brownouts even 450va will be just fine. I personally run my router & switch on a 650va unit and it runs for almost two hours.

Kind of an off time for UPSes right now as they seem to be closer to full price. I found this sine wave unit at a decent price at $156 that's usually $250+ new, but it's nowhere near the sub-$100 deals I've seen before:
https://www.cdw.com/product/apc-smart-ups-750va-120v-w-smartconn/5774712?pfm=srh

A couple of others in that same power range that are starting to be a decent deal, but wait a few more weeks on these to really get the sweet spot.
$276 usually $400+:
https://www.cdw.com/product/apc-smart-ups-x-750va-rack-tower-lcd/5777507?pfm=srh
$318 that's usually $400+:
https://www.cdw.com/product/apc-smart-ups-750va-rm-usb-ser-1u/5792133?pfm=srh
$347 that's usually $450+:

This is a good point and one which I was thinking to reply with but didn't want to negate the 'sine wave' requirement as I prefer that as well.

There are some good deals on the cheapee model in the CDW outlet as well, but you have to factor in the shipping cost. I've bought 1500va avr cyberpower units for $77/ea including shipping. Just got to keep your eyes peeled and be ready to pounce.

Some random stuff I've found even though there's deals everywhere thanks to the holidays. :)

Coolermaster N400 for $40. Probably has another drop in it, and pretty nice case for sure:
https://www.cdw.com/product/coolermaster-n400-mid-tower-case-bs/5808914?pfm=srh

Liebert 1500va sinewave UPS for $69. I think this is near the bottom as it's usually $100 for this unit:
https://www.cdw.com/product/vtv-psa5-1.5kva-900w-lcd-ups-10out/5834118?pfm=srh

HP Laserjet Pro M13FN for $42. This is crazy cheap as it's usually well over $100 for this thing. Probably won't go even a penny lower and I'm surprised it's actually even this low as most stuff gets liquidated before it drops this low:
https://www.cdw.com/product/hp-laserjet-pro-m130fn-bstk/5803580?pfm=srh

Msi x299 Pro Carbon Motherboard for $176. Might have a drop or two left in it, but a nice price where it sits right now since it's usually $300+:
https://www.cdw.com/product/msi-x299-gaming-pro-carbon-motherbd/5810277?pfm=srh

hhhmm $15 in shipping for battery cartridge but. 21$ in shipping for 3 but, you can get the bare batteries for like $20-22 on amazon with free shipping AND 9ah instead of 7.5ah or 8ah. still not a bad deal.

Batteries are heavy so that part sucks, but if the price is low enough, you still come out ahead. :)

I've learned about a lot of fake stuff and just utter crap on the 'marketplace' sites. And I've also seen compatible batteries just not hold up like the original branded ones, hence why I only get originals now. I don't like changing batteries after a year when the original brand is going on year 3.

I echo what he said. In my limited experience cheap batteries tend to not last as long but you pay less for them so they tend to come out the same.

As a "For Instance", genuine Liebert/Pactiv batteries are usually a specific part number of CSB batteries. I can buy the cheapies but the line interactive 2000VA units eat them like candy and they swell to the point you sometimes are putting scary amounts of pressure on them trying to remove the sled. APC passive units? They don't seem to have these issues. The batteries just last three years instead of five or six. So now I buy the APC batteries for my line interactive units but the cheapies can use "Duracell" from the local Batteries+.

the 12vs in these are "standard" everything under the sun uses them. they are all recycled but, HEY you make a point maybe APC uses nicer ones or something but, generally speaking for some years i've been using the ones off amazon and them seem to work i've only had 2 or 3 be bad but, i have more than 10 or 11 of these back ups as i've since lots count cause everyone throws em away when the batteries need replaced cause they don't know any better.

Are they the typical 1270 batteries inside each pack? You can also find a few in slightly higher amp hour ratings in the same physical form factor too. Typical is 7ah but I've seen 8ah and 9ah too. I have 3 Eaton 9130 UPS's (high end line interactive commercial units) each with a few extended battery modules each that are all pushing 5 years now and one is just now giving me a battery error. I need a total of 138 batteries to replace all of them. Going to be a big chunk of change no matter what.... :(

While the batteries are standard, qa is still a part of the manufacturing process and I'm pretty sure the genuine batteries are top tier since they last much longer than 'compatibles' in my experience. I actually ahve 2 ups units that now on their genuine replacement batteries have lasted longer than their original ones, which is outstanding imo.

It depends. For units like yours they may be doing something different. I'd definitely keep an eye on the outlet though as a lot of the rack unit battery packs come up for dirt cheap. I actually got one that was listed with the wrong model number for $19. This was for what is normally a $159 part! Too bad it wasn't what I needed, but man what a deal for someone that did!

I've also seen whole UPS units go for just the price of batteries, so I haven't hesitated to just replace a unit and then pick up the battery later when it was deeply discounted. (y)

i'm having hard time telling, you have link to an OEM or full price battery so i can see what it looks like? even my big boi APC unit i was able to get regular batteries and rebuild my pack by my self. i eventually went full ham though in the lab and at home...

https://forum.level1techs.com/t/upg...cycle-batteries-kept-under-the-house/140572/5

and

100ah each vs the 7.5ah stock or even the upgraded 9ah. you can forgot about running the auto shutdown software on the little UPS with the 2 100ah batteries, the software looses it's mind. the BIG UPS doesn't matter so much since the batteries in it were 18ah-22ah and with 2 servers+ it drinks the power.

On mine it uses the typical 1270 ones with F1 faston tabs. Each shelf daisy chains them into 72v packs then two packs are serial connected to make a 144v pack. In my scenario though I'd need to get enough of the batteries to at least fully populate one UPS as I'd be very reluctant to mix ages/brands/capacities. With as many as I need I'm probably going to just get them in bulk. I've found a couple of places that I can do a bulk order though and that gets me down to about $13.50 each including truck freight.

I considered using an optima yellow top battery for one of our 1000va apc units as someone had done it before and it would have killer runtime...but then I thought about what would happen if this went wrong--not worth burning down a $1M building. :eek:

If you're looking at that much capacity, keep an eye on thse 6000va units as they may drop down in price low enough that it would make more sense in the meantime to just get a new unit:
