First off, hats off to f0rkz for the time spent in the overhaul of the site. Looks great bro!
As the topic has stated, I have noticed a trend these past few weeks that used GPU’s have flooded the market. I’ve done some research on how “abused” or heavily used the majority of GPU’s have been through the crytpo mining process. A high percentage of them either stay at stock clock speeds or slightly underclocked to save on it’s power usage. Only real wear and tear would be the fan motors, as in, the hours.
So what does this all mean? I gambled, rolled the dice and jumped on a deal I thought was great. I purchased (2) Radeon 270x Ghz Editions off of a Litecoin miner. Description stated that the cards were in fact in a mining machine and that they had been used for nothing else. The cards had been tested with Furmark previous to selling as well.
As of a few hours ago, I have received the cards, installed them and tested them myself with Furmark. Everything has checked out so far.
So if anyone is in the market for an upgrade to their GPU’s, now is a great time!
