I literally posted this deal this morning, it went out of stock and now it's back! Get your graphics card before it's out again.

These aren't worth mining with. Pretty much the worst mining card.

I think more because some SDers want lower than MSRP even if they have to wait til 2028. At least that's my experience when I've posted gpu deals. Lower than current market price is a deal imo.

Hence the reason there are zero (0) graphics cards deals posted.

I can't wait until the mining market crashes. The assholes promoting blockchain even have the nerve to advertise on reddit game deals.

that's because it's a $429 card just a few months ago.

I was getting the Ti version for around this price.

I can't imagine how long it would take getting your money back mining on this card?? anybody know?

A-freakin-men.

All I wanted to do was upgrade the video card in my 2011 model computer. These bleeping bleeps have absolutely annihilated the computer parts market. $300 for a video card and $150 for 16 GB RAM. I might as well just buy a new computer.

Or it could be that it's not a deal. Cheaper than an inflated market price isn't a good deal and certainly not a slick deal. Over priced is over priced. This is at best a $500 card nearing the end of it's cycle, soon to be replaced. For gamers, over paying for a gfx card is a terrible deal.

Each 1080 card makes about $1.5 a day if BTC stays at $8500 and drops around 0.2% daily. So about $40/month typically you have 6 on one rig so you make about $300/month on one rig after Southern California electricity. You can make about $30 more per month if you actively spend 8 hours a day switching coins and trading up. That's exhausting.

The card has min of 50% resale value in one year. So "get your money back" is for the depreciated value or about 50% of the cost. So yes it's profitable IF BTC stays at $8500.

Typically you mine and hold at least 3 years to judge the real profit. BTC is going to be $100K by 2020. Always crashes in Cold season. And goes up in August.

One of my 1080s is grossing me $2.59. I bought four back in November for $480 each.
My power is only .05 usd/kwh. So guessing I make about $2.35/day profit. Payback for my cards about 6.8 months.

Why does it crash in Cold season & go back up in August? Why do you think BTC will be $100k by 2020 (2 years from now)?

I basically own at mining, I buy 1080ti's all day err day. I will not hesitate, not for one second, to buy as soon as it's available. I can do this allllll day long baby. I'm a reseller and a miner, and I absolutely LOVE the wailing and gnashing of teeth from SD when they find out about my two greatest passions(reselling and mining).

Side note: is there a way to convert salty SD tears to electricity? My farms would love that
