    i would consider selling my minable 3080 if a Ti variant comes out that can't be mined on.

    Your 2080TI would be earning you half a case of beer a day.

    ...aaaaaannnd gone.

    I was tempted for a moment to upgrade my 3070... pass that down to my son and sell the 2060 Super he's currently running... but then over two grand on a video card hurts my sense of rationality (that said I'm slowly saving for the next series of cards with a view to move up to a xx80 or even xx90 series card depending on just how much I've set aside by whenever then is.

    $3400 WAS and still should be considered expensive
    $3999 is just alot more expensive

    Both are silly prices for a GPU

    Karma is a bitch.

    One of my 3060's just dies. Purchased in March. It was throwing a few rejected shares from day one but it gamed well and was in my daughters machine.

    She went to start it yesterday and I got the dreaded "Dad, my PC won't start." Her machine is an i5-8400 based system.

    Plug it into different machine and it isn't detected by Windows. Nothing in Device manager and if I put it as a single machine just a blank screen on startup.

    Will RMA with supplier.

    I blame my arrogance.
