After seeing the Tustin chair-squatting incident, I went to my Microcenter on Sunday afternoon to find an entire multigenerational family sitting in folding chairs out front.

I wonder if Meemaw ever got her 3080.

What's the current over/under number of days you need to camp outside of a Microcenter to (maybe) get a card?

This was me a few months ago. In anticipation of a new pc I had neglected cleaning my current pc for the past 2-3 years, thinking I could get away with it.

Have you ever peeled off the lint from a dryer lint screen? The fan at the back of the case was kinda like that, just took my fingers and it peeled off in one piece.

Donít forget that if you came into the used car market and couldnít find something reliable, you canít say Fiuckit and get a cheap brand new car like a Camry or Focus, either. Car makers have deep pockets and even they canít get chips and rare earth and I learned today that weíre running out of SAND. Well, a particular type of sand that makes quality silicon cheaper than other types. And the sand/aggregate rock is needed in concrete-the most abundant human-manufactured material in the entire world. At least I still have a cassette recorder to write programs in BASIC and save them on audio cassette. 🤪

God I wish we could buy cars without all the electronic crap, or at least most of it. What I would do to have a small car from the 90s again, the ECU and a radio with an aux jack is really all the chips you need.

I went and replaced my case fans with newer more betterer ones and when i went to fire up the computer I had no video out.

I had a five minute panic worrying that i'd managed to damage the gpu when taking it out and was worried I'd have to buy some overly expensive downgrade to my 1080 to tide me over, or sell a kidney to get something modern.

When I re-inspected it I realized I'd forgotten to plug in part of the gpu power cable.

So what's a safe way to resell your gpu to take advantage of this situation? I don't wanna take advantage of goons and list my 2070S on SA Mart, but do want to take advantage of miner by selling it to miners.

FB marketplace so long as you're happy to exchange in person somewhere sensible. You'll get a lot of crypto assholes who think they're history's next great entrepreneur send you overly aggressive messages in an attempt to haggle, but stick to your price and you'll find someone to sell it to pretty fast.

I've been able to sell a bunch of components locally for cash/Venmo (save $ on ebay/paypal fees). I've encountered no drama or annoying hagglers. At the same time, I live in the Bay Area with a lot of nerds who have lots of disposable income, so YMMV.

It's a great seller's market for used 2070 supers. They're selling for $800-$1000 on ebay depending on the model. When I sold my 2070 Super in the fall for $400, I thought I had made out like a bandit.

Don't sell GPUs on ebay right now. Ebay is for low demand stuff where you don't have better options. Use Craigslist/FB Marketplace for high demand stuff, you won't get any less for it but you don't risk getting hosed by ebay's awful buyer protection policy that lets buyers walk away with both the product and the money.

yeah plus gently caress paying fees and gently caress sending someone hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of something they can then claim broken and take their money back.

facebook market, be honest and through in your description and decent in your dealings, but only take cash and only meet somewhere safe. if they're smart they'll ask for proof of it working, what i did was run something like doom 2016 cranked with full performance metrics for a bit and send them a youtube because no one is coming into my house during plague. if they seem even a hint sketch bail, you shouldn't be struggling to find buyers. meet at a bank or grocery store or somewhere else you can deposit the cash immediately. protips.

Yeah I'm aware of the magical number - even the manufacturers seem to have mostly abandoned that (at least evga and Zotac have) and that's assuming I get an unbundled card - so one shot a month with Best Buy or eat some other component cost in the newegg shuffle (assuming I get either of those). Supposedly my nearest Micro Center is basically only selling cards as part of their pc building service.

it's a pre-tariff number too, many places have increased prices just in response to that. the manufacturers howled when the RRP was announced because they didn't think they'd be able to make a profitable product at that price point and lol it turns out they're not wrong.

my personal experience is spending about £580 on a 3070 and not regretting it at all, but the 3060 is pretty far from a 3060ti as i understand it.

Hello thread, it's me, the idiot from a month back that was complaining about high GPU temps when I only had a single fan in my case.

This morning I took most of my build apart, installed two Arctic F12 fans into the intake position, and moved the single fan that came with the case into the rear exhaust position (at the same time that I upgraded from an R3 3100 to an i5-10400).

I've only just started to put it through its paces, but so far I'm seeing a good 10 degree drop in GPU temps from the previous use-cases that would push it uncomfortably high.

Thanks for yelling at me and pointing me in the right direction.

I replaced my old rear fan from a Corsair A1225L to an Arctic P12 PWM @ 1700rpm / 100%, and the GPU cooling difference is night and day at same level of noise to my ears .

I'm sure the whole setup would be better if the P12s replaced my 2x front Phanteks F120MP @ 1100rpm / 60% which are also really loud at 100%, but I'm too lazy to do it.

These P12s are incredible to say the least.

Companies arenít gonna idle/fire the hundreds of people they have on staff to develop, design, market, and release products just because the current products are selling better than expected. New products are gonna keep coming on roughly the regular cadence, see: the 3050 Mobiles and 3080 Tis that will be launched this month.
