potato pohtahtoh.

1: 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.

2: 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.

3: 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.


4: 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.
1: That's up to the individual to learn if they want to.
Anything at any time could go wrong, even the best at it make mistakes and I'm not saying it's an easy thing to do for everyone nor do I assume such. I was picky in what I got to work with in the first place, that's a big part of it but as you say, sometimes you really can't "Know" if what you are seeing is THE problem.
Could be a symptom of an even larger, more obscure issue with it causing all the mayhem. I've done such work for years with it being industrial related so I do have that advantage working for me and I also have spare, older stuff/hardware/setups to chance for testing purposes.
All that needs consideration before attempting any work of this kind.

2: That relates to point 1, I understand why they would be put off because I too was at first but the only way to learn is dive in.... With something that's dead in the first place with no chance of repair.
That's how I started.

3: I agree with this aside from the assumption everyone has the sense to do it - I do not assume anything to that end. It's true not everyone can do it, like for example music - We know what it is and honestly anyone can "Play" as in play a note but how well they could actually play (Talent for it) is an individual thing in itself.
Not every one is cut out for it.

4: I do agree with this but realize I too was an average Joe until I picked it up by my own initiative and taught myself how to do it.

Other things goes back to points 2 and 3 I've made, there is no guarantee of anything but at the same time one that doesn't currently know will honestly never know until they try it at least.
As for the investment in tools and equip, that's just part of it like having a gaming PC you built yourself or if wanting to change spark plugs in your vehicle. It's an investment that has real potential to pay off and thats why I started doing it and yes, it has paid off many times over what I have in the tools themselves.

If anyone wants to take a crack at it I'd be happy to start a thread going over some of the basics, do's and don't you'd need to know.
Best I can do in that case - All the rest is up to whomever.

Had to purchase a new card last month after my gtx 1080 burnt out.

was lucky to find a 1080 ti for £490 (MSI seahawk EK X the water block version)

It's still a decent card and still holds up pretty well so i was lucky considering the prices of them are disgusting.

My 980Ti is still kicking along. I replaced the TIM and thermal pads (in case anyone is curious, 1.5mm is the thickness needed for a 980Ti AMP Omega) a week or so back. The TIM on the card was still good and replacing it did nothing to improve the temps. She still gets high fan spin ups for a second or two, but performance wise things are still working like they have been. Depending on the game and settings I pull 60-120fps on my newer monitor. Things look and feel a lot smoother with the higher framerate my monitor supports.

Too bad the whole idea was to get a new GPU along with my 1440p monitor, but I don't honestly think new GPUs exist. So, I keep having fun with what I have. Here's hoping that she doesn't die on me anytime soon.

Went from 980 Ti to 1080 Ti myself. 980 Ti was fine but 1080 Ti is much faster than I thought.

Old gpus? I took back my Radeon VII from my kid and sold it for a ludicrous sum. I then swapped my ole TXP with block to him, That's more than a fair trade for him. Now that TXP is worth a a decent chunk of change now, lol.

I got "HOOKED UP" big time when I got my 2070 FE. A pretty well known forum member sold it to me for less than $350. I've got it listed on my local craigslist looking to trade it plus cash for a 3070 or better, and keep getting people offering me $600 or more to just sell the card. I've had it for a little over a year, and can sell it for double what I paid for it (right now, and for the foreseeable future.)

Yea, cards are worth a lot even our old ones. Replacing them is the problem.

I regret selling my 980 Ti for dirt cheap. Well, I guess HD 7850 is better than nothing on my HTPC.

The tears will flow when the market floods with used GPU's :laugh:

Not really sure I want an Ampere anyways.. and its not because I have a Seasonic :D

I think what comes after Ampere is the card you really want.. so maybe this is a blessing for us.

I'm sorry, but what's the point of this thread, besides flexing?! Especially after that thread about hardware elitism the other day?
Its not flexing, its being grateful with what you have, you dont need all the latest and greatest to enjoy your hobbies, look at all those fools who sold their 2000 series RTX in preparation for RTX 3000 series only to lose much more money due to scalpers or end up with no GPU at all.
Only upgrade when the hardware you have are no longer cutting it, This post is the OP realizing this valuable lesson, noting more

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.

It dropped to £250'ish? That's crazy. I bet the miners had a field day with that one. I don't think you can pick up a 1060/1660 for £250 nowadays... the GPU market is bonkers!

Glad you got a bargain though! thats what counts :)

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:

Games in red over 24 hours

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.

I'm all in. Tired of looking into stuff and than *procrastinate*.

Thanks for sharing the profiles. This was something lurking at the back of head, knowing I can easily switch profiles for efficiency/less likely perf degradation is a BIG+ of confidence.

You're getting a solid return @ 7-9 bucks per day. I'm not seeing the same benefits using the nicehash calculator... £2.50 (USD 3.50) per day (-electric). Better than nothing :)

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.

COVID-19 STATUS: I'm available for adoption, hehe.

I love my 1080 Ti cards, still have them, still use them, why would I sell them? Even if I could get more money for them than I bought them for right now, why would I?? Same goes for my RX 480 Strix, they working and doing what I want them too.. They are not as efficient as I'd like them but that doesn't mean they aren't still useful :)

One thing about being a collector of hardware, times like these I never care about having a load of stuff cos I can simply chop and change if I wish to.

Still going to use the 1080 Ti's until they die and hopefully that'll be a long way off :D I'm sure I'll have other cards in replacement of them and others I have/am using now but that's another story and an update for my project thread :)

Enjoy whatever hardware you have everyone, you bought it to use and enjoy it, enjoy it you should! :)

But how long will it be B4 that flood comes? If cryptocurrency mining doesn't crash, who's to say that'll ever happen?

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.

It's a a bizarre concept to be stashing videocards for later use, would you have ever considered doing this, say, three years ago?
