I've never sold anything on ebay but I have a 3090 SUPRIM X, 2080Ti Strix OC and an EVGA 1080 Classified. I think I have 2 x 780 somewhere as well. At current insane prices that's probably nearly £4K worth of GPU eek

I'd definitely get the 2080 and 1080 listed if they're just sat there gathering dust.

Or if you have cheap energy rates, use them to mine crypto.

Managed to grab a 3070 FE from Scan this morning for £470. A bit crazy when some retailers are charging £750+ for AIB 3070's!

Scan sell Founders Editions? I didn't know that. Will keep an eye out, I have a 3090 but want to try grab my son a 3070 at some point.

I think you have to use the Nvidia shop for those, they just link to Scan but I don't think the Scan website lists them if you search, might be wrong but any FE models on the official Nvidia go to Scan.

Just click through - https://shop.nvidia.com/en-gb/geforce/store/?page=...

Try @partalert on twitter. Where I got a EVGA 3070 for retail price.

Still not snagged the 3080 for my PC yet though.

PartAlert Twitter, they got it up before the discord alert bots did, but they also pinged. The Captcha was nearly the downfall of me! Site was running damm slow too but just about managed. Order confirmed, hopefully it arrives.

So my kids introduced me to Minecraft, it's pretty fun!

Surprised how intensive it is on the GPU though, with shader pack I need to tweak so that I get about 90+fps.

I was after one of the 3060ti cards but didn't get it. As I was refreshing the 3070 popped up and I think I've got one! It's still pending but I do have the confirmation email so hopefully will be OK.

One thing, I noticed that the address on my account is my work address - do you think that will matter? I would like it delivering there (save the Mrs finding out wink ) but my payment card isn't registered there.

Should be fine, I used to get stuff delivered to my work all the time because there was never anyone at home during normal delivery hours. This is far from unusual. Enjoy your new card.

I got a 5500XT 8GB from eBuyer around Black Friday last year for £175. Just looked on eBay - the prices are bonkers!
So partly thinking "this will be a laugh" (meaning I didn't think I'd even get buttons for it), I just searched eBay to get some idea of what my old Sapphire Radeon R9 390 OC card might be worth. Apparently I could probably get more than I paid for it over five years ago spin
I think I let my R9 280x go a bit cheap. Got an offer at £67 on ebay and thought let's not be greedy and get this over with.

Then let my RX 580 8GB (bought for £160 in dec as an interim replacement), run it's course on ebay and got £310 for it.
Wait.... my Radeon Vega 64 looks to be worth over $400 and the same as mine are going for $600! I paid $365 in 2018. This may be the start of a journey I don’t want to take. Would my Zenith Extreme motherboard support modern graphics cards?

Noooo way! The zenith extreme alpha is going for $600+.

Let me check the thread ripper 1950x. Bother. It’s half the price I paid. That kills my plan to boast to my wife I’m a genius.

(All prices based on sold listings on eBay)

I only use the PC to VPN into work. My kids play Minecraft though so we can consider it a gaming rig.

Cheers, I did message them but it does appear to be going through.

I guess I better start buying the other bits to make up a system now!

Tried to buy a 3060ti and another 3070, went all the way through including payment and got kicked back because I'd already bought a 3070FE from them.

So have created a new account.... boxedin
