  • jerrylee22
    jerrylee22 Month ago

    $799 for a great 1080 Ti. Even $740=760 for ones with questionable aesthetics (usually the white ones).
    I've seen the same $800 1080 Ti I got sell for $850-1100, though, so you need to find the right seller. Even Amazon may have two or three different sellers with very different pricing. Like he said in the video, I did have a chance to pick up a Nvidia 1080 Ti Founder's Edition for $699, but I absolutely did not want that. If I actually had enough money left, I maybe could have snagged it to resell in this crazy market.

  • STEN Gaming And Music

    i have a phenom ii x4 960T (yes o know I need to upgrade my cpu and I do plan too) I was using a GTX 570 which is about a 7percent bottleneck, but I just got a GTX 1060 3gb which is a 24 percent bottleneck. Now will the better card even out and still be a upgrade from the 570 at all or will I get better performance with the 570 all together? I am sorry I just got into pc and I honestly don't know if I should keep the 1060 out of my system for now till i get a better cpu or if it is still a upgrade from the 570 even though the bottleneck is way higher? Thank you in advance!

There will be lots of bubbles and loses before this craze stops. One site said bit coin expanded by $40 billion over the last day.www.ccn.com/crypto-market-jumps-40-billion-in-2-days-as-bitcoin-ether-and-xrp-record-major-gains/ The graph does not look too good for bitcoin though.

    hd7970 £100 min and max on ebay uk. i have seen £167. I contacted that seller and told him is price was a joke. These cards were going for about £50 2 years ago . So it made sense to crossfire them than get high end cards. So the low end cards are very expensive and high end just no way i can get them. not even one

    Dude, I spent $2,000 on a new build just to have a overclocked nvidia1070, I7, and 39GB Ram. It cost more than it should have, but It out performs most the pc's you build. Even the temp is ideal, around a cool 30C average.

    The GPU shortage is a fucking scam. I go to Best Buy almost twice a month and they always have 1080s, TIs, and Vegas, and the price went up there as well even though they are the same cards from weeks before. It’s bullshit.

    Well, here in Sweden, I bought my GTX 1080 for 7500 SEK, about 2 years ago, and they now sell for about 1000 SEK less, so I don't really see a problem. Sure the price could be lower, but it's lower than I bought it for when GTX 1080 were new.
