How much did you pay for your gpu?

How much did you pay for your gpu?

Too much

This is the one true answer


Philodendron-Dad

I feel attacked.

$0 for my 1070 Ti about a year and a half ago. It was in a co-workers computer that got soup spilled all over it. It wouldn't start or run after that and he was going to throw the whole thing away but gave it to me to see if I could salvage anything. I took the computer completely apart and scrubbed and cleaned every little detail of every component I could. Been using the 1070 Ti since.


GoodbyeThings

I love this. I also like to salvage things I can. The other day some neighbors threw out a treadmill. I took out the electric motor. 3.5HP, might be used to build stuff. And I got two broken iPhones by my parents and turned them into one working one.


pilesofcleanlaundry

A buddy of mine did that and put the motor in his daughter's Power Wheels buggy. She now has a throttle instead of just the on/off pedal, and it goes about twice as fast now. It would probably be even faster, but he had to put in a big-ass battery, too. But it goes about as fast as he can sprint.


TransATL

No shit, I pulled a computer out of the Chattahoochee River in the late 90s (still have no fucking idea why it was in there), let it dry out, cleaned it up, put a new hdd in it, and used it for years.


patchouli_cthulhu

Burn the hdd of any computer you find in a river :/


jamesmon

nah man that's good eatin'


poe-one

Pshhh you think he was gonna eat it raw?


InterviewOtherwise50

I don’t remember computers In that Alan Jackson song…


GyroDaddy

Never knew how much that muddy computer meant to me


Karp0s

Hey, if someone wanted to gain the knowledge to be able to do this kinda stuff. Where would I go to learn? I thought I bricked my pc after a bios update and paid someone to check it out for me. Turns out that 2/4 ram slots were not working and he plugged my ram in to the 2 working ones. Got charged 75 bucks tho


GoodbyeThings

Make:electronics is a cool starting point, I think. And then just take apart old, broken stuff. Solder stuff, use a Multimeter (the most important diagnostic tool I think. I’m really not a pro at it though )


Karp0s

All good if you're not a pro. You're probably more knowledgable than me so that's why I asked. Thanks.


JankyJokester

I mean google honestly. It sounds like a dumb short answer but it's true. Get good at searching for shit and using other databases you come across and you can troubleshoot fucking anything really. Working in IT at a call center most hold time is a straight up lie while we search a database or google.


buystuffonline

YouTube is a great place to learn


wallacorndog

I was just playing PC Building Simulator and had a diagnose and fix mission where the customer had spilled soup in his computer. I thought "who spills soup in their computer?" I guess I found my answer 😂


guntherpea

Turns out the venting on top of some desktop cases really helps to evenly distribute soup throughout the top of the case, making sure to help the soup not just hit the fan, but ALL THE FANS.


stripedpigeon

Good man


zighextech

"Man, shame for it to go to waste, this old rig was really souped-up!"


sindustrial777

This reminded me of this: "In Yiddish a schlemiel is somebody who often spills his soup and a schlimazel is the person it lands on." It's a schlimazel 1070 Ti!


Moist_Cheetos

50€ for 1050ti a couple of months ago


Akiboss321

Dang, I spent £160 for a new 1050 ti, your one was used right?


KyeMS

Holy shit I've got a spare 1050ti laying around, if it goes for that I'm putting it on ebay asap


Akiboss321

You would deffo get at least £120 for it on ebay/Facebook marketplace


KyeMS

Thank you for that!


straw3_2018

Yeah I bought a used 1050Ti from a *friend* for $100. You can easily get more from a stranger.


skav2

Try r/hardwareswap.


Moist_Cheetos

Yeah, I bought it from a friend of mine


[deleted]

[удалено]


Genericusername673

Yeah, I spent £170 for a new one last month as my 280 died, (rip r9 you did your job well).


Ko__e

is that enough for 1080p 60hz?


arlenbtw

Yeah man I got a 1050 Ti and honestly besides on some of the newer titles (my CPU is a bottleneck so take that into account) , it does really well.


Spacemn5piff

People sleep on the 1050ti so hard


Walnuto

I've had mine for almost 4 years and have only had the urge to upgrade once I got a 2k 144hz monitor.


Spacemn5piff

Yeah it punches above weight class for sure. I could play battlefield 4 in 1080p at 100fps on that beast and a pentium.


indiaexportsbeef

/r/1050ti


TomatoAcid

What’s your definition of “new titles” ? I’m always confused on how new a game should be to be considered new.


I_Bin_Painting

You know, something released on the latest gen consoles like Skyrim or gtav


TomatoAcid

LOL you’re not really wrong.


I_Bin_Painting

I think “new titles” at the moment really just means anything with RTX ray tracing


davawen

I remember paying 150€ for a new one before the gpu shortages, where did you get that deal ?


Papukeitto

600€ new RTX 3070


DrugDealerintraining

$500 new RTX3070 from BestBuy


Papukeitto

Dang you got lucky didn't you?


DrugDealerintraining

Yep! Got it on 1st day of order. Never thought I would get it though and now looking back super lucky because I’d never buy one at the prices now.


Papukeitto

Yeah. I got mine on the release day. I tought that everyone wanted the ASUS or MSI one so i went for Palit and got lucky. The ASUS and MSI ones went in a second but Palit was available for solid 2 hours :D.


DrugDealerintraining

I didn’t even try for any of those because they were gone so fast lol. I went with FE because I thought it would be my best bet. Lol.


prateek_tandon

How are the thermal pads on the Palit one? Any overheating issues?


vitjansen

My 3070 is from palit too


goldworkswell

I spent around that much in usd on a 3060


A_Random_Catfish

Same, just got it from microcenter on Saturday


aldfrarug

500€ for a used 2080Ti december last year


ZAIDAN791

Damn thats nice


Al-Azraq

Yeah people was selling Turing like crazy when the news ones were about to drop. Many of those sellers are still gaming with their integrated GPU I assume.


Hawkeye4077

£750 for RTX 3080


[deleted]

[удалено]


Hawkeye4077

Yeah got lucky with using a webscraper to check for stock updates. Manage to score a Gigabyte RTX 3080 off CCL for £750 with a copy of CoD Cold War (it was okay)


Hawkeye4077

This was back in November


IIHURRlCANEII

Also paid around the same for mine. Back in September I got into the notify me queue for 3080's on EVGA's website. Those were sold for MSRP and I got mine in early November.


jdund117

Fuck, I'm in the same queue but I entered in October... I haven't gotten my email yet.


IIHURRlCANEII

Yeah, I hit the button apparently less than one day after it was live, period. That was before they even announced the queue for those who had signed up for notifications. Good luck, my dude, and godspeed.


deathblooms2k4

Same situation as you except February. It was an amazing surprise as I had no idea that the notification system put me in some que. I also got lucky having checked my email in the 6 hour window that I was unaware of when the que popped for me.


MrNob

I paid £660 for my 3080 founders edition and sold my 1080ti for £385. Bargain upgrade


Hawkeye4077

It's a pretty ridiculous market for reselling GPU. At the time I bought my 3080, I think I could have sold my 1080 for around £500. Which is crazy


DarthSyhr

1,500 for a 3090.


mordakiisyn

Same. Best buy ftw.


Tumblrrito

3090 Best Buy gang


CasualChris123door

I keep checking best buy, waiting. ... Waiting.


EJNorth

Fe?


DarthSyhr

Indeed, from the Best Buy drop on Good Friday.


AldoCalifornia

I got mine last May. $1800. Having never been able to play on anything but the lowest settings with my 2013 MacBook Pro for 8 years makes the 3090 so worth it. Games I’ve played with it include Pokémon on an emulator, Diablo 2 and 3, Call of Duty. Really getting my money’s worth


DarthSyhr

I played Resident Evil 8 and RDR2 with the graphical settings cranked and was in awe. I had originally been playing old games like L4D2 on a laptop with integrated graphics, then moved to a smaller build with a 2060 (was blown away by that change), and then upgraded to a larger build with a 3090 and was blown away again.


IPrintThings1234

$460 for a 1080 a week ago.. Some of these comments are depressing


Akitz

Don't take it too hard, the vast majority of people commenting are motivated by bragging rights. If you paid a typical amount you're a lot less chuffed about it and it's a lot less interesting so you're less likely to comment here so it will skew cheaper.


5cot7

Also we dont see the thousands of people who havent been able to upgrade at all


ohaimike

I just got my 1080 for $500 yesterday. That was the cheapest price I was able to find. I'm just happy I got a gpu upgrade for under $800+.


sushitastesgood

Wow I got a used 1080ti for $500 like 3 years ago from a crypto miner and every time a thread like this comes up it is reaffirmed to me how that was one of the greatest decisions of my life.


besplash

Bought my 1080 for 800€. Preordered it. It's still a great card, I can imagine that $460 isn't too bad for what you get


WorkReddit_SendNudes

I got my 1080 for $1100ish about 4 years ago


NeedMorePowah

wow, you got ripped off edit: which 1080 model is it?


WorkReddit_SendNudes

It's an EVGA 1080 non TI version (bought before the TI's were released), also the price is in Canadian dollars.


NeedMorePowah

Ahh Canadian okay that’s a normal price then... Great card btw


Noob9yo

a very decent GPU even nowadays. my 1080 is dying but still performing like a champ


WellisCute

380€ for my rtx 2070 new🥰


anonymous037104

nice I paid 400 as well by buying an entire gaming pc second hand then selling the PC but without the GPU


WellisCute

I bought it before the 3xxx series came out because I had a gut feeling, ended up then selling my old 1060 for 300€ ;D


ObliteratedChipmunk

$370 for my 2070 2 years ago.


MythicForgeFTW

$550 after taxes for RTX 3070. Got very lucky and managed to snag a Founder's Edition on launch day.


stripedpigeon

Me too! Man, after it jumping out of my cart three times I felt like I won the lottery when it confirmed shipping and payment. That was a crazy morning.


MythicForgeFTW

It was crazy for me too! My friend's first PC build was banking on me snagging the 3070. I had a 2070 Super and was happy, but my friend wanted to start his build as the GPU shortages were starting. So I told him if I snag a 3070 I would sell him my 2070 S. We were both very happy that day, lol


stripedpigeon

I did a similar thing with my friend because I had a EVGA 2060 Super SC Ultra that I bought in July 2020 (Didn't know Ampere was coming out and my RX 590 was garbage so I bought this, also I was fairly new to the PC building community...) Said if I get one then my wife would get my old card. It was overkill for her playing Sims and basic 1080p games on, so my friend who had an ASUS 1060 traded me that card plus cash for my 2060S and he got my card for a non inflated used price and my wife has a card that works perfectly fine in her gaming PC and she's happy as a clam. Now my friend is able to do high refresh rate 1080p and ray tracing. He couldn't be more stoked.


MythicForgeFTW

Hell yeah, that's what it's all about. High five!


stripedpigeon

*high five*


Conpen

I'll raise you, $658 after tax for a 3080FE. Bestbuy *somehow* didn't exclude Nvidia products from their 10% birthday discount...I've never been so lucky.


MythicForgeFTW

Oooo nicely done!


ParadoxArcher

Wow, that's a good deal! And you're the only person I've heard so far with the founder's edition.


Kaeltiras

I got this gpu as well for the same price on release. Founders edition. I figured it would be a good upgrade over my previous one. After I thought my luck ran out I said fuck it and tried to get an xbox series x. Got that as well. Then I thought, well, Ive come this far, and tried for a ps5. Got it as well. Now im gonna ask my gf to marry me. If she says yes, Ill move on to lottery tickets.


packapunch_koenigseg

$220 for a 1660 super May 2020


DukeNukemSLO

Thats pretty good, ngl


Woobie

Same for me. I was building a new Ryzen 3600 based PC, and the prices had just started climbing. Love that GPU, it's very power efficient for the performance.

Blacksad999

$810 for my 3080 almost a year ago.


Pure_YT

Hallelujah


Blacksad999

Haha! I just got super lucky. If were ridiculously wealthy, I'd buy a ton and randomly send GPUs to people. It would be cool to see someone on here with a dying Gtx970 or something, and just be able to have a 3080ti show up at their door one day.


Boko88

Yes mr I want your address but I won't break in and murder you.


Dcslayerx

At this point without a GPU, getting murdered is fine.


AlistarDark

It was close to $1000 CAD for my 3080 at launch.


RylocXD

$160 for my GTX 1650 Super


oZeons

damn i paid $150 for a PNY 1650 lmao. oh, and $650 for a 2070 Super


vonarchimboldi

i recently saw 1660 Supers on amazon for like 600 USD. 🙃


MisterMerius

850€ for my Gigabyte Aorus Master 3070 Ti in Germany last month


StillNeat4797

Okayish price. Aorus Master is really sexy tho.


roomier_cg

1100€ for 6900xt


momisko

Around 70 usd for hd 7750 around 10 years ago.


TransATL

I was going to say $120 for an RX 460 around 5 years ago. Are these really selling for $300 rn? https://giphy.com/embed/ukGm72ZLZvYfS


momisko

Depending on which country you live in. In mine it is 250usd. But that is only because it has 4 gb of vram. For example an rx 580 8gb variant goes for 500usd rn in my country 💀


karmapopsicle

The funniest part is that there’s essentially no practical performance difference between the 4GB and 8GB versions of the RX580. The basics of it is that the card simply doesn’t have enough power to make use of it. The only time the performance differences start to show up is by cranking up the settings to levels where neither version is delivering playable frame rates. If the 8GB version gets 20fps in a particular game at 4K resolution and the 4GB version gets 15fps it’s technically correct to describe the 8GB version as 33% faster in that scenario… but that doesn’t change that neither one is delivering playable frame rates.


geirmundtheshifty

Yeah, I was looking to get an RX 400 or 500 series a couple of weeks ago on ebay (after my R9 280 crapped out on me) and the prices are crazy. I ended up paying my friend $50 for an old GTX 770 that he didnt want anymore. (I would rather continue some low spec gaming than buy a newer graphics card in this market)


Tux424

$120 for an RX580 8GB in Nov. 2019


mrawesomeplus

$275 for my rtx 2060


ZimBobub

*what* where do you get such good deals?


Opak973

That was the price for the 2060 last year. That's how (or he bought a used one, then it's a good price regarding their actual price on the used market rn)


Mataskarts

the 2000 series were nearly worthless when the 3000 series had just come out, I even saw some 2070 super's going for \~230$. Didn't last long, maybe 1 week before people realized the scalping issue.


84904809245

1300$ for 3070…


hate_redditors

GopherGroper

I paid around $1150 I think because I was sick of all of the bullshit. I was ready to build but I was waiting to get everything until I could secure a new GPU. Finally I was able to secure an order with B&H for a 3070 at around $600, so I ordered all of the other components for a fresh build. Everything else arrived but my B&H order was cancelled. So here I am with a fully built PC all but a GPU. I sit like this for about a month and said screw it and bought one from Amazon for way too much.


ejaya2

$513 including tax and shipping for my 6700XT, will be here tomorrow!

I agree thats why im wary lol Saw this on Facebook Marketplace, so im making him send a stress test, any tips on what I should look out for? Any questions. I should ask him? This is a founders edition btw, idk if it's of any importance


-____-___-____

I'd recommend picking it up and asking him if he can show it working and do a stress test whilst you are there. Then your basically 100% sure it's working.
