If you're okay with purchasing used graphics card, it would be worthwhile to check out reddit.com/r/hardwareswap. If you want to know the usage/history of the graphics card, serious sellers will give you that information and let you know if the card is still under warranty (most should be).

I recently purchased a GTX 1060 for almost half its original price and put it in my fiance's setup (he was using a gtx660ti). He's been getting a lot more fps  :cool: and has had no issues with it

I'd probably end up getting a used one anyway.  Not sure about reddit though.

At the moment this project is on hold due to an urgent house move.

Nah.. Get one of them Used 1070 for ~ $250 ish...  Get the one with the Big coolers,  Skip the small ones.

Yeah, I know.  I guessed that originally.  Still lacking funds at the moment.

And space to setup this second PC too - there is barely enough space for my main PC.

And my big desk was a casualty of the moving process - they stacked too many boxes on it and broke the top.  So I am on my smaller desk.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

My 970's(or one of them anyway) are starting to go bad, got a few BSOD's recently and they are getting super hot lately. I've no money so I'll be completely screwed when they go :(

This project is still on hold, unfortunately.

I'm even trying to save up $20 a month or something, but that plan is not working 100% either.

Yep, i see it. We all have that problem.

AMD announced their budget graphics cards (I think 5500x or something) and they perform similar to a 2070. Once you save up the money, i suggest checking it out Rowdy.

Rowdy has a family to feed too.  Ramen is not the most practical choice for everyone.

Show them the origin of Grit

Without reference, modern humans live insulated from any true-hardship. They never have any opportunity to experience the despair their wasteful choices exert on the aching backs of the proletariat-class.

Fact: flash fried dried noodles have been around since flat bread.  As far as hardship, one only needs to go to school or enter the 'work force' to see and taste grit.

Besides, TRUE grit can make due without a GTX XXXX because TRUE grit could give two f's about what GPU they've got  No one wants to be TRUE grit.. that's just boring.

There's a difference between  a 1st world  kid taking a break from cafeteria lunch plan by making ramen,   and a Proletariat where Ramen is the ONLY affordable meal.

Tp4 does not have all the answers, merely attempting to portray the larger contrast at play.


1080ti is not a must have,  but it's among the most useful devices.

The only reason I said anything was because I was raised by survivor's guilt.  btw, how does one heat up and de-hydrate ramen in a cafeteria?  My 7-18 yr old bag lunch self wants to know.

Heck, want to see ruthless?  Want to see a persistent unrelenting 24/7 work ethic?  Watch the nature channel.  One can do that in 1080p 60fps even with a 1050ti.
