I'm sorry, but what's the point of this thread, besides flexing?! Especially after that thread about hardware elitism the other day?

The card is 4 years old and still going really strong. lacks DLSS, lacks RTX, lacks GDDR6, lacks more shading units, lacks more ROPs, lacks more SM count, lacks more L1 & L2 cache. and lacks 8nm process and lacks more transistors. lacks... a lotta other things....

Flexing?? really?

Big sad, too bad. Maybe you'll have better luck getting one after people stop selling second hand cards at MSRP

Here is over MSRP.. You can buy a 1080 for 750, 1060 for 500, 2060 for 800, and I think I saw a 3080 for 3200.

If those are your cards, and you happen to be reading this.. get bent.

Not in any position to flex here, running a 970 GTX I bought as a dead card and believe me, it was dead.
It had blown a couple of MOSFETs so I took what I needed from another parts card and fixed this one. Doing fine now and until it dies again I'll just run it but when it does, I'll get the other 970 I fixed as well and pop it in.
Backups are nice.

Recently pulled my Radeon VII to stash it, still works fine but just wanting to save it for later.

Now this is a really good flex and a really good valid excuse to flex.

Not a whole lot of people know how to or will even attempt a self repair with parts from other dead cards and the fact that you youve done it, got it working again is 100% bragging rights.

I managed to nab a secondhand 1080 Ti (Aorus Xtreme Edition no less) last year in September for 250 pounds in mint condition, this was before prices in the UK went up to ridiculous amounts on everything. With a huge Steam catalogue of games that cover the past 10 years I have been playing extremely comfortably at 4K with superb graphical fidelity and framerates. I have now purchased a gsync 1440p Monitor and an Oculus, the card seems a perfect fit for them both and I got so lucky.

Hilariously, after using the card for nearly half a year, If I was to sell the card at a shop here in the UK called CEX, currently, I would recieve 357 pounds cash(100 roughly more than I paid for it) or 412 trade in value for it. Drivers have all worked perfectly on it. When I finally get around to the most recent of titles(Cyberpunk etc..) the market and indeed the world will hopefully be in a much better place and I will upgrade to a modern card, with raytracing capabilities and a good chunk of vram. But until this has been the best bargain I have picked up and the most consistent, best performing piece of hardware I have ever had the pleasure to have owned.

Not really - If someone can do the basics of soldering and they have the equip, which in itself isn't that special then they could do what I did. In my case it's making the most of what I've got instead of spending $$ unneccesarily which I don't have alot of for such things.
Learn how to solder, get the equip and score some good deals - They are out there, waiting to be found and exploited.

I saved a few bucks doing it but it wasn't without risk, I still don't know what make them pop (Happened with the previous owner of the card) and yes, it could happen again one day. ATM I using it now in this machine and so far I've noted nothing to worry about in how it's doing.

I managed to get my second hand 1080ti by trading my 980ti+400AUD cash and the actual only game that's made my 1080ti feel outdated at 1440p was Cyberpunk, can't justify an upgrade yet unless I sell my kidney for a Samsung G9 Monitor or find another cheap 1080ti for SLI.

potato pohtahtoh.

assuming someone can or is willing to learn the basics is where you start to go wrong. Nevermind that people automatically run into a wall when it comes to dealing with electricity as that runs a higher risk of damaging other components or setting the house on fire if you do something wrong or if it turns out there was a bigger problem with the card than expected.

Just looking at a board filled with capacitors, resistors, chokes and other IC chips is enough to deter a lot of people unless they know what they are looking at.

Dont sell yourself short. Having skills in a particular trade is like common sense. Everyone likes to brag about them having it. Everyone else likes to assume that everyone else has it but thats where they are wrong.


An average joe wont know how to solder never mind having all the equipment to do basic repair work like a multi-meter and a soldering iron.

Tell me more :respect:

I have briefly looked into nicehash in the past but never got around to pulling the trigger. Any recommendations?

I use my build for non-GPU related work and other uses [daily driver]. I only game for around 5~10 hours a week depending on the mood (or the wife lol). With this type of use-case is it feasible to squeeze in some mining action?
Same here - I get maybe 1-2 hours from time to time, the rest of the time the rig sits there making ~$7-$9 bucks a day (why not?)

Im super lazy, and don't want to mess with stuff, so I just set up Nicehash and hooked it up to coinbase and just have it quietly mine at 60% power limit whenever im not playing:
1617635857807.png


Games in red over 24 hours

1617635883772.png


1617635902968.png

Basically it's two right-clicks away to start and stop mining. Pull out of nicehash when the minimum hits... there's also a subforum for it here too. Once it stops being profitable will shut it off but in the meantime it's a nice contributor to the gaming rig upgrade fund.

Flexing with a 2017 card sounds weird to me..

Sounds weird to me period.

The card is 4 years old and still going really strong. lacks DLSS, lacks RTX, lacks GDDR6, lacks more shading units, lacks more ROPs, lacks more SM count, lacks more L1 & L2 cache. and lacks 8nm process and lacks more transistors. lacks... a lotta other things....

Exactly, it's uber-level tier, albeit from two generations ago, which is still going strong today and ridiculously expensive.

Flexing?? really?



Okay, gentlemen, our opinions clearly differ, so I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. I will refrain from further posting and will not follow or reply to this thread. Have a good day.

Oh, and...

running a 970 GTX I bought as a dead card ... so I took what I needed from another parts card and fixed this one.

I always appreciate useful stuff being brought back from the dead instead of becoming e-waste. Kudos!

Graphics cards only truly die when they're no longer useful to you.
^^^Quote of the day right there! You win the internet. :D

Seriously, if a GPU or any piece if hardware does what YOU want it to, then you’re fine.

The 1080Ti is still a great card for many people.

I have a GTX 1080. With my 1080p system it's more than enough. If I had, for example, a GTX 980 than I would seriously consider upgrading, but this is not the case. I occasionally play games, so there's no rush for an upgrade. I'll replace the whole system next year, so... This year I plan to spend around 1300 € for a gaming laptop, despite I will not exactly play games on it, so my main system will wait. :)


If it's able to propel games at your resolution with high level of details to 50-ish FPS on average, you're good. :D

I currently have 4 gaming rigs going. My main, my VR rig, sons and daughters. Of those I am running a GTX 980, GTX 1080, GTX 1080 Ti and RTX 3090.

Even the GTX980 does most things super well at 1080p. Where the GTX 980 and 1080 fail for me is at 4k gaming. The 1080 Ti has the extra oomph to play most games in 4k with a mix of higher and lower settings and some games even the Ti just can't cut it at 4k. In steps the RTX3090 which plays all of my games in 4k with good frame rates.

So as a 4k gamer the 1080 Ti is fair and did get me by for quite some time. Super card when gaming at 1440 or 1080. Hell at 1080p the GTX 980 still trucks along quite nicely.

I'm so looking forward to upgrading from my 980. Its not a horrible card by any stretch. And for the games my kids play its awesome. For me and my games.. well I don't know any better so to me its still ok, but it struggles with some titles when you want to juice it up. CP77 for one. I played it for about 2 minutes before I decided I wanted a better GPU.

My 980 is clocked pretty high out of the box, so maybe that helps. Its supposed to be 1290MHz @ stock but it runs @ 1417. I can run it up to 1500 with some memory clocking before she runs out of power to feed it all. Summer is almost here.. soon it wont matter so much. Hoping to pick up something this fall though! Might have to use the CC if prices are still out to lunch.

I'm sorry, but what's the point of this thread, besides flexing?! Especially after that thread about hardware elitism the other day?
Its just conversation. Sharing thoughts and experience, allowing others to reflect along with yourself. Sticking to your old hardware I think is the polar opposite of elitism. Its all about getting the most out of what you already have, really.

I think its different when the OP phrased like that was instead talking about a 6800 or 3080. ;)

Try flexing with a 2014 card :sleep:
Vintage bro, vintage hardware!

To start realize what stupidity people are doing jumping instantly on a "new entry on market" GPU :)
This period should be a lesson!

And very likely a long-term lesson :(
Been advocating this train of thought since Turing. I sat on Pascal exactly because I saw no need and low gain at high cost.

Oh yeah, I wont ever sell it.. like my 580 Matrix Platinum :D

I just repurposed it to my sons machine, he should have my 980 but.. you know..

It still works, its just not the best anymore :)

Although I do know someone in the states who recently sold his 980 on FB for like 400usd :D

Crazy days.

Yup. But I mean if you need it you need it right? Cost be dammed.

I put mine up for 450.. no bites lol.. ahh well. I live in the low ball city where everyone is afraid to pay asking prices.

I have two 1080 tis (the white Gigabyte gaming OC and a strix oc)
However the strix card degraded like hell and is not even stable at stock speeds anymore. The Gigabyte card still runs perfectly fine.

I guess the 6800XT (for MSRP!) is the next 1080 ti like Card. Overclocks pretty high plus the 16GB of VRAM.

Did you try to change the thermal pads on the strix? its probably the VRMs that aren't cooled properly anymore.

I entered the team about two months ago. Gigabyte Gaming OC Black. Going still with 1080p, but going for 4K sooner or later.:toast:

Flexing with a 2017 card sounds weird to me..

I used a GTX 1080 Ti for 4K gaming on my 4K@144hz IPS panel and I am more happy with my RX 6800 XT then I was with my GTX 1080 performance wise but also the GTX 1080 Ti lacks DSC which does if you want the full chroma subsampling 4:4:4 you cannot go above like 90Hz if I remember correctly, even my old RX 5700 XT could do that :roll:
