    Need advice on 1080 purchase

    I am currently out of town working, but was offered an Asus Rog Strix 8gb GTX 1080 that has not been mined and was purchased in 2018 for $380 through a friend. It appears they sell for more than that on ebay and I think here, but I honestly have limited time to look into it to see if its...

    Return to Newegg or RMA through ASRock

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the input. Sixfootduo, I sent you a PM, I wanted your opinion on something if you could. My entire experience with Newegg was bad from the beginning so this will be my last go with them. My order was damaged before it was even delivered and the warehouse held it and...

    Return to Newegg or RMA through ASRock

    I know, avoid Newegg as much as possible. In this case the deals were just too good. My Asrock board will only recognize channel a memory, so I think it has to go back. Is it preferable to exchange with Newegg or RMA via Asrock? (I am aware of the new egg issues and am prepared to...

    WD Red 3TB $90 AR

    Seems like a good deal, although there is a bit of a gamble. Anything better out there?

    Used 7970 or new 7950?

    Already registered and got the games, just need to queue them up.

    Used 7970 or new 7950?

    I already did, thanks. The Sapphire was out of stock, got the Gigabyte with the better/easier warranty per reviewers. Hopefully I get the bundle too, IMO that makes a decent enough deal.

    Used 7970 or new 7950?

    When is that supposed to happen. I dont want to buy used, especially with the Never Settle bundle. There's a fine line between when prices drop because the new series comes out and when they stay steady because of availability.

    Used 7970 or new 7950?

    Do they actually have the 3 game bundle in stock?

    Used 7970 or new 7950?

    Thanks everyone, I was second guessing my decision to move up to the 7970. The 50 will be more than good enough, at least for my current rig.

    Used 7970 or new 7950?

    Yeah, I worry about that. Bought the 5850 used and it's run ok, but I cannot overclock it at all. The default OC utility works, but this series gets flicker when you use it with dual monitors. No matter what BIOS I use, if it's not the factory one I cannot OC even .1 percent.

    Used 7970 or new 7950?

    Wow, sorry, preoccupied with the Seahawks/Falcons game. Currently running a 5850 and an OCZ Modstream 700 watt all wrapped up in a Corsair 500r Main monitor is a Dell 2209WA running @ 1680 * 1050. The reason it would be reference cooling is because those seem to be the cards in the price...

    Used 7970 or new 7950?

    Obviously for a used 7970 I am taking whats offered, typically reference designs to keep the prices similar to a new 7950 (maybe Gigabyte triple fan) Thoughts? Is it worth the hassle and possible warranty issues?
