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

Despiser Despised says:

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

Sheriff MayorTV says:

Linus I just bought a GTX 650 in late 2018…

Mario Battistotti says:

Eric Swansboro says:

Anyone else Soley focusing on the fucken Titan just chilling in the rain?

Alan Ruiz says:

Douglas Waugh says:

So WHO is ripping you off ?
Manufacturers ? Retailers ? Wholesalers ?
Those pieces of electronics junk are worth 1/20th the price.
Greed

Electrohead says:

Woot Linus is Canadian 🇨🇦 !

l crowley says:

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:

TL:DR
U cant

Dana Farland says:

You Should Send Me A GPU, As I’ve never had one, and wish to build a Gaming PC. :'( I’m so jealous of how many you have.

Billy Tiphareth says:

I love how he has just a bunch of GPUs sitting on a shelf, and here I am with my 7700 GHz Edition trying to find something decent to upgrade to, lmaooo.

bkingk8 says:

In a couple of years there will be a massive glut in the market for second hand gpu’s

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 .

II Reform II says:

AWESOMEGAMER says:

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