I have 4x reference 290x graphic cards on waterblocks attached to each other sitting in my living room on a display shelf literally collecting dust.
wanna be friends......lolGot a 3080ti and been really happy with it, so the 2080ti has kinda been collecting dust along with the 2060. For some reason I don't wanna sell them just yet, though not against selling stuff. Just don't wanna deal with the hassle of selling video cards for some reason unless it to close friends.
update: I have graphics cards now! Friend who is downsizing for a move tore apart some old computers and mailed me a couple GPUs...None, I currently have zero AIC GPUs, just the ones soldered into my laptops. Sold my Vega 64 for a thicc profit in March/April, sold my backup GTX 560Ti in May, and sold the GTX 670 from a secondary system back in October when used older-gen GPUs were still dime-a-dozen. The only one I regret selling is the 670... that was a decent card for what it was and would have been a good card for content creation and stuff. Now my old primary system (FX lol) is GPU-less and collecting dust when I could be using it as a streaming box or something <facepalm>
i hope your surgery goes well!Recently I've used my 2080ti to loan to friends in a bind with a broken GPU. I thought about selling it. I heard they were going for $1000, and as I had surgery, I needed the $$$. I decided not to sell it and keep it on it's crusade to help friends in need of a GPU. I'm from Cali and currently it's in Ohio, all they had to do was pay shipping. The couple thought it was so nice, they started a Gofundme and a lot of our friends pitched in to help out $1095 so far with my surgery. They surprised me with it and I couldn't express how much it helped!
I had it July 1 and I’m doing great! The finances were a little crushing and the day I got home a crown fell out, and there was $1500 on top to off a horrible month. My dentist allows me to make payments, so I got it fixed July 6th. But now it seems some things are going right big time! My friends have helped incredibly, I got a raise retroactive to July 2020, and things are looking up!i hope your surgery goes well!
