    Turns out I didn't get one of the shiny new monitors but rather one more of the old ones, which is fine because now one system has two new ones and one two old ones. 
     
    But now I want a third one, lol.

    They're also really shiny HP ones. Sadly 1080p 24" only, but that matches the old ones so whatever.

    Reason I don't even care to give people in my RL tech advice is, that they always proceed to run into some store and get talked down to buy something more expensive anyways. 
    Example rn:
    Friend wants to buy an av-receiver, asks me if this 500€ Denon is any good. I tell her sure, but mine just cost 250€ and can also do everything I want. 
     
    Couple weeks later she comes up, telling me she bought a Denon. But the 1400€ one, to be more future proof. 
     
    Okay, then why ask me in the first place?

    So while I'm currently in holiday in Greece, I still need the forum and some random research to keep me running. 
    This is why I made this little table. 
    The order is, Graphicscard, F@H PPD, Power consumption in W, PPD/W, average price on eBay in Germany, PPD/W/Price
     
    GTX1050Ti
    180k - 75w - 2,4k/w - 130€ - 54
     
    GTX1060 6G
    380k - 135w - 2,8k/w - 200€ - 71
     
    GTX1070 
    650k - 160w - 4,0k/w - 370€ - 93
     
    GTX1080 
    750k - 185w - 4,0k/w - 500€ - 125
     
    GTX1080Ti
    1300k - 280w - 4,6k/w - 700€ - 152
     
    So while the GTX1080TI is the most expensive, it also performs the best per watt. The performance sweetspot is held by the GTX1070 and the GTX1050TI is the best if you don't want to spend much initially. 
     
    I wonder if Nvidia is willing to sponsor me 4x GTX1070 for a private server?

    Okay so wtf. 
    As you might know, I just finished my 'apprenticeship' (Integrated degree program, so full time work + bachelor's degree) with two other friends. 
    Both of them just bought a Porsche. One a brand new Macan GTS and the other a 996 GT3. 
    And I'm sitting here, fighting myself over buying new speakers for 400€....
