    Yep. I assume it is just sitting in your Steam inventory? If so you should see a button that allows you to gift it.

    I've been told the card doesn't look pristine, but I don't think that is a deal breaker, no? It is fully functional, just had scratches etc on the destickered shroud.

    Like @Norton says Join!

    I joined so time ago but as I grew into/ with this wonderful community how could one not help out?

    I'm just a part timer, but it's becoming an obsession... Dam numbers get the best of me so I've been taking up a tiny bit of work when I can in-between hardware changes ;)

    Think of it this way, it don't hardly if at all bog down your system in any way, but if it does just suspend your job for the time it takes you to game or get your fill in other things then start it back up.

    They give you enough time to complete your job so hey why not help?

    Crunching rocks lol!!!

    and @mx500torid , it all helps brother!

    I donated what I could AFFORD as im sure you did the same, so dont worrie :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well guys I not sure if I am going to make the challenge. I lost one of the x58 rigs today and it is got me thinking of selling the other and cut my loses. I may crunch part time but I can't afford to replace crap. I don't want to kill any other rigs so I am seriously thinking of having a sale and let some things go.

    Just kinda sucks that I have built this little fleet from scratching pennies together and now it's falling apart. Well I'll figure it out. I may crank up the backup rig for a short spell.

    Dont frett for the next 3-4 days. Let it do it's thing, check your results here

    It wont take long and you'll be in the 200's for point standings quick :rockout:

    Like Norton told me, you need to let it run, the rig needs to SPOOL up like a turbo does, and then your going to get great PPD.
