What can I do with an extra GPU besides selling it ?

Recommended Posts

I can combine their power in certain professional applications ? Interesting... Now I just need to not suck at art work/3D modelling.

I have an idea, You can give the videocard to a child and say its a woody doll


Nvidia is to Dr Dre Beets as AMD is to KFC.

One makes you broke, the other you can get more of and have a midnight snack from the fridge when hungry again. Once you go Nvidia, you go broked, turn into an Elitist, or get the incorrect amount of VRAM.

 I was only 9 years old. I loved Fifflaren so much, I had all the NiP merchandise and matches pirated. I prayed to Fifflaren every night before bed. Thanking him for the life I have been given. Fifflaren is love I say. Fifflaren is life. My dad hears and calls me a fuckhead. I knew he was just jelly of my passion for Fifflaren. I called him a Sw@yer. He hits me and sends me to go to sleep. I'm crying now, and my face hurts. I lay in bed and it's really cold. A warmth is moving towards me. I feel someone touching me. I feel someone touching me. It's Fifflaren. I am so happy. He whispers in my ear; "this is my pyjama". He grabs me with his powerful Swedish hands and puts me on my hands and knees. I'm ready. I spread my ass cheeks for Fifflaren. He penetrates my butt-hole. It hurts so much but I do it for Fifflaren. I can feel my butt tearing as my eyes start to water. I push against his force. I want to please Fifflaren. He roars a viking roar as he fills my butt with his love. My dad walks in. Fifflaren looks straight into his eyes and says; "He is a ninja now". Fifflaren is love, Fifflaren is life

Use it as a test dummy for things that would void warranties... Flash VBIOS, install aftermarket cooler, etc. And otherwise have it just in case your GPU crops out on you.

Why don't you try to OC it on LN2? Just for the lolz. It'll be fun I guess.

Isn't LN2 expensive and hard to optain ? I want to try it :3

Store it in a safe place and keep it as a back up card. Never hurts to have more than 1 video card.

It is, kind of. But most people I know borrow from the college lab.

 

I'm actually in the same situation as you, I'll soon have a spare GPU and I was asking the same question to myself, then I thought why don't I use it for experimenting. Then I came up with this Idea. :D

Well, you said you had a second PC, you can indeed put it in there. You could turn it into a stream box. That means you stream games from your powerful PC to the PC you put the 660 Ti in. 

 

Or you can put it into storage for in case your main GPU breaks.

You can train PC Modding (Painting) on it. You know, apply a wicked pink to it, and it breaks something... oh well, at least it wasn't THAT important. If it doesn't, it might give you confidence to try modding other parts.

This is a pretty good idea...

 

Most people won't bother doing it, or even attempting anything like it, with their parts.

 

 

Store it in a safe place and keep it as a back up card. Never hurts to have more than 1 video card.

This is also a good idea.

You never know,....yours may fail at any time, and with RMA's taking time, a backup card is a godsend!

I'll try asking my chemistry teacher if he has some I can borrow :D
