Bet gpu prices are due to mining, but that’s getting old now so prices are dropping

I wonder if Linus’s wife knows he’s gay yet?

Scarywesley4 says:

I never paid attention to GPU prices (upgraded before crypto boom) and just bought a Vega 64 for $300. I didn’t know it was $1,000 at one point. Holy shit!

DMX Lasxhxdivids says:

Six months after this video came out many of the mid-range graphics cards such as the RX 580 and 1060 Ti have significantly dropped in price, but many of the upper end cards are still over MSRP by a good margin.

vh9network says:

Almost looking like a G with that cap on.

jay wilbur says:

How about doing a Giveaway or drawing or something for all the old dusty unused video cards that you guys no longer need/want or use? That would be beyond cool

Patrick Hector says:

Managed to get my hands on a used 780Ti for $80… aud. Needed a bloody good clean, and the mounts for the fans are a little rusty, but besides that I haven’t had a problem with it yet 😀

Christian Lee says:

When the RX series came out, I just bought someones 1070ti used. I had the guy run thermal and performance tests, and it worked like it was new. Spent half as much as a new model.

Chin Foh Hee says:

Joseph Lagunas says:

Hello guys . My name is joe I’m doing a project right now that I was wondering fokr you could help in any way. The project is building a gaming pc with all donated parts. So far I have a donated case amd fx8120 990fx mother board and a 850watt power supple . All I’m missing if a graphics card and ram . I was wondering if you had any old or spare graphics cards that you can donate to my projects. Even ram would be helpful .

The NVIDIA Tesla V100 32GB Passive GPU in 27,000 bucks. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!?!?


You should look at AMD Radeon 7570. It’s actually really good and it’s $20. It can do CS:GO at 1080p30.
