My GTX 1070 just sold for stupid money

Regular viewer of LTT, so just thought I'd contribute.

 

I bought a GTX 1070 in April 2017 for £375, use it for a few months, but eventually got a better card for my needs and the software I mainly use (ironically lower performing card) , so just put it aside and forgot about it.

 

Just sold it on ebay for £460 + £10 postage. I can't believe the GPU world has gotten this stupid for this long, someone's being shafted, and it sure as hell ain't the manufacturers.

 

Fingers crossed that within a year, things get a bit normal again, as I'd still like an RTX 3080 before PCI slots become outdated! 😆😆😆🤔

At this rate, trading GPU futures could be a thing. 😝

Definitely shouldn't be a profit thing, never has been before. It'll get better though I'm sure...or it better do.

Once again, stop tempting me to sell my 480.

I'm already a Inch away from doing it.

If I can get 300 on one, that's most of a 3060 (when stock doesn't suck)

I am still TechWizardThatNeedsHelp, just less of a mouthfull.

PCI slots became outdated in ~2018, as I believe that's when they stopped being included on motherboards.

Saying "getting a 3080 before PCIe 3.0 is outdated" might be a bit better.

On the topic of this post, congrats on your profit?

I wonder if I could make any money on my GTX 750.

 

EDIT:
Hold on a sec, I'm making $88 from my GTX 750 2GB.

my friend just put up a RTX 2060 KO that he bought for $250. Its selling on ebay for ~$550.

Sorry about tempting you, mind you, if you don't need it right now, that 3060 will be within reach, like you say, when stocks don't suck!

Cheers for congrats, it's actually a hard one to take, as I'm used to working to earn money...not having the right GPU at the right time! Still, at least a certain auction site has made some money!

For poops and giggles though, here’s one of my conversations within a few days of starting the auction:

 

HIM: Hey mate I was wondering why you are selling this card and also why it is so dusty for some reason, can I get an explanation please?

 

ME: Hi pal this is mainly due to it’s poor performance with professional software (AutoCAD, etc.). Eventually I bought a Quadro P2000 and it worked just as I wanted. I guess the light amount of dust is due to the non-fan side pointing upwards, along with just sitting there not doing anything for a good 6+ months. Hope that helps.

 

HIM: hey if possible, would you be able to put it in a pc and benchmark any games or use a benchmarker to see how it performs. If it does well I may purchase this.

 

ME: I was thinking about doing that some time, so keep an eye on the listing - I don’t play computer games so I’ll probably use a benchmark utility.

 

HIM: Hey if you can reserve this card for me at £130 I’ll buy it today.

 

ME: Thank you for the offer, but I’m in no hurry to sell this. One sold for £295 a few days ago, same condition.

 

HIM: I’m not going over £150 on this and I’m in a rush for this card. However I’m alright to talk for negotiating.

 

ME: It sounds like this item isn’t for you, very best of luck in getting one else where, I’m sure another will show up soon.

 

HIM: I’ve been looking for this card for a very long time and is 100% for me. The price is justified at the levels of dust because I lost my gpu to dust causing it to break.

 

ME: I do sympathise, however I’m not taking £150 for it, I’m using this bidding process to get the maximum amount to compensate for the replacement GPU I’ve bought. I do wish you the very best.

 

HIM: How much are you looking to sell the card for?

 

ME: One sold for £295 a few days ago, same condition.

 

HIM: a brand new 1660 is cheaper than that and has better performance for that price…

 

ME: That may be, but people are still paying more than they should this for card. I don’t know who you are and I’m not trying to offend you, but this is just the current market. If the current market suggested it was only worth £100, I would sell it for that.

I got a MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X that I have been thinking of selling. Its just sitting in the box that it came in, including all the original packaging. Waiting back on a friend's pal to see if he wants it or not. Some guy in MC was willing to pay $400 for it when I went yesterday, but I didn't have it with me. Crazy money though.

I mean I don't need it, but it's (by far) my best gpu.

Following that would be a faulty had 2600xt and then a HD 3650.

 

But that's like 3x what I would get for it normally.

If I had literally anything else that could hold me over for a while I'd sell my RX 570 right now. I could still make a profit on it, even though I bought it 3 years ago. Sadly the second newest card I own (unless you count a GT 710) is a Radeon HD 6870, and that's not going to cut it for FH4. I've got a Radeon R9 270 that I could squeeze by with, but it's dead.

The market here isn't so bad thankfully. I bought a used RTX 2080 Super for 500 Euros about a month ago, less money than what you sold your 1070 for. Yes it is the cheapo blower model, but even the nice ones were going for around 580 (at the time, I haven't checked since). Someone could make a killing buying up cards in Europe and flipping them on Ebay in the US.

If you call that stupid loook at 1000 W PSUs. Used is now 60% more expensive then a new unit a few years ago.

Probably not. More realistically you are looking at half the price which is still more then it should be.

You're not wrong, and I'm sure your jokes are amazing 🙂

 

Hmm, well may be you can offer it here or a geographically suitable site, if needed.

No one would buy a GTX 750 2GB for $69.

I'll probably ask my mom to list it or something.

Crazy stuff isn't it. You'd probably get more for it...although saying that, you never know when you might need it, especially if your other card goes pop.

This is what worries me. My PC is old, but I can hold off upgrading. If my GPU goes pop, my PC could be out of action for months. Nearly 500 quid for another, used, 1070, shit.

It's stupid that we have to think this way, never known of a time when normal people have to 'keep their own stock' of GPU's, just in case. I'm lucky enough to have enough GPU's now, not super powerful ones, but ones that allow me to work (rarely play computer games these days). I've got an RTX 4000 & P2000 now, the latter can do the job, depending on what i'm doing. Main thing is I've got a 'backup GPU'...stupid that it's even something I have to worry about, but if I don't have one, I can't work, so can't earn money!

That's the thing! I did repaste my RTX 2080 last weekend as I was bored, it took me at least an hour to clean the thermal paste in between the capacitors surround the die itself. Then the thermal pads ripped so I replaced them with 1mm thick pads that I have, which I don't know is the right size or not. Those were only on the memory chips and I have no way of measuring the temperatures as well. 

 

I do have an R9 270X sitting in its box but I doubt anyone would buy it considering its old. This one goes back to my first PC.

You made me think about selling a "spare" 1070 I have again... I saw your listing while looking up recent sales to get an idea on pricing. You do seem to have got more than average for it, maybe helped by your information. Good stuff. Think mine will be on the lower end given it is a blower card too. 

 

Still kicking myself for selling some other excess GPUs at their lowest pricing before the shortages kicked off. But can't change the past, and seeing what happens in the future was never my strong point.
