The World Through Your Eyes

So got myself 3070 finally.

Congrats, and meanwhile I’ll be sticking with my GTX 1650 for a long time still…
Let us know when you’ll open a Patreon to get back all the money you’ve spent on this. :wink:

If i will be able to sell my 5700 XT whole ‘upgrade’ will come down to very reasonable price . But that is ‘if’ . Since crypto currency has crashed again demand for GPUs also went down. Few months back i could easily sell it for 600 euros , now i will be happy if it will turn me 400.

On the side note. These new cards are getting so ridoculous in size…

Yeah, they are absolutely gigantic these days. Hopefully it will fit in your tower with some room to spare!

One of the reasons I’m still using a 1070 is because I have a “mere” mid-size tower and I don’t think there’s room for the new cards in there :rofl: (The other reasons are the power draw and cost.)

It did fit with 2 cm to spare . Ofc before buying it i checked the clearances inside the case ! :smiley:

@eishiya I also do use ‘mid-tower’ but i guess they do vary in size . Mine supports up to 35cm GPUs and this one is 33cm . That said it is one of if not the largest 3070 partner design . Cooler is just a massive chonker.

That’s good… I think I can make my computer last a while. I also have a similarly spec’d laptop, I don’t know why I splurged on the laptop after my desktop, but I barely use it… lol…

It does seem that i have misjudged the current used GPU market. Few months back i made a ‘test sale’ to see what kind of interest there would be , and people were calling me at 3 AM trying to buy my card, but now it looks like no one is efing interested.

That’s my cousin. He never ate his breakfast so that is why he is so smol.

Looks more like a rotten banana to me. Gummy squirrels should come in packaging and be edible so @AcornAvenger can get some revenge. :slightly_smiling_face:
