Re: Cellarnoise2 - post 3 ....

There are plenty of other 'friendly competitions' as well where that's less of a concern whether it's within our own TeAm or with other teams. The recent Milkyway@home competition that was just between our own TeAm on the Anandtech forum would be a good example. I'm pretty much 100% certain nobody b...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

The seller responded that they had to move to North Carolina for work. I ran a GPUGrid WU. It took 8,656.49 seconds for 18,968.06 points, so around 189k PPD. Not bad. I'll go back and rerun more WU's of all these projects afterward to get a better average, but right now I'm curious and seeing how th...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

They denied 20 cards at $20? Reply back asking what kind of deal you can do then. I messaged the seller and was told they could only drop the price a dollar or 2. Makes no sense to me when they're supposedly sitting on a stockpile of these cards that are only going to depreciate when the new cards ...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

I don't think I would want to deploy a large quantity of them. I need to keep transitioning to more powerful GPUs as I am space and power constrained at this point. Really the interesting unit is the P104-100, at least you get 1070 level performance with it. But those are not as common. I had an id...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

I'm really not sure what it would take to get this seller to go any cheaper. I made an offer for 20 cards @ $20 each and instead of a counter offer got back just "can't"

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

I was just going by the tracking info, but it was shipped from Tabor City, NC. I just looked it up on a map and it's super far from High Point NC. I did a 'make an offer' for 5 @ $30 each a little while ago which is pending, we'll see what happens but I'm guessing they'll decline it. They declined ...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

Downsides of smaller GPUs: 1.) A single GPU computer is easier to cool than a multi GPU computer, due to the space constraints. (Unless you make enough space with PCIe extender cables, for example.) 2.) In Folding@home specifically, one large GPU gives more early return bonus than two or more respe...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

Find out where in North Carolina or South Carolina they are. I live in High Point, NC. So if it's not that far from me I can drive and pick them up myself. I'd be interested in a group buy, but we need to check on shipping first and at what price we can get 10 or more of them each. I was just going...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

I'm trying to win a few of those 1060 "mining only, no video output" cards myself. let me know how well they do. I'm trying to build a rig with 8 of them. I finally had a chance to get it setup tonight. So far - I'm pretty impressed. I paid $54 including tax and shipping. I have it currently in an ...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

$350 for a 1080ti is definitely a good deal. Usually when I see them at that price they are purchased very quickly. For BOINC I think going with cards that are not new releases is probably the move. So far the refurb 2080ti I had bought on the cheap was a way better purchase than the RTX 3080 since ...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

Let us know how the 3080 does on various boinc projects. :) I just checked the GPUGrid forums and they'll need a new app to support the ampere cards. :( First test: Folding@home is showing 4,756,193 PPD on a project 14908 0x22 WU. I don't really know how to gauge that though since I know F@h switch...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

I just lucked into what I would consider to be a very fair price on a 3080 given the current market. I was the second view on the Anandtech buy/sale/trade post and had money sent within about 15 minutes of them posting it. I'm probably about maxed out on PC/video card spending for awhile unless some...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

While I was on eBay looking at mining gear I came across this power supply for $30 brand new.

I just had to share it :lol: Definitely the sketchest power supply I've come across. The "90 plus gold" is what I found the most humorous.

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

That would indicate that the 3070 will actually sell north of $600? Either that, or the 2080ti is not that great a value at $550... My personal reasoning was I just built a couple more PC's that do not have onboard video and I'm not looking to wait a few months for the new cards to be available. I ...

Re: Broke my phone pretty badly...

Anyone ever sold a used damaged phone? Seems I can get $70 for my broken/damaged Pixel 3 XL. https://www.sellcell.com/phones/google-pixel-3-xl/ Claims for a Verizon, 64GB, Pixel 3XL with damaged screen but still fully functional phone for $70 and they'll pay for shipping. Seems like a no-brainer. I...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

EVGA B Stock has 2080ti's for $550. That's a better price than I've found on eBay and outside of a handful of cards that sold really quick on other forums, etc. seems to be a really good price especially with the 1 year warranty. I'm debating picking one up but it would still be the most I've ever s...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

As more info comes out about the highly disruptive RTX 3000 series release, I've heard that many 2080ti owners are dumping their GPUs, but the information available makes it seem as if they would need to be had for less than $500 to be a good value. They are nowhere near that right now, afaict. It'...
