You're assuming current profitability is going to last a year, which isn't realistic at all. Elon Musk screwed us. Yesterday I was making 22euro per day (24 hours) with one 3070 and a 3060 mobile, today its already gone down to 12euro. Profitability was at an all time high, it's going to return to normal values or lower.
I'm getting $10 a day on nicehash with a 1660s, paid in btc, In 2 months btc will be 100k, so will be about $1200 - electric in 2 months ti.e
At one point I'd agree but not so sure now amd are certainly getting more aggressive in the market and so are the Chinese obviously there behind the leaders but growing fast,think the 2 horses race days are about to be done,Intel will always be a player if they can keep in the race but as we've seen time and again it doesn't take much of a stumble for a tech firm to fall flat out the race! If it were just them and amd I'd say sure but the future a little more hazy these days
aim for £350.00 if just usung the Apu for graphics
I’ve never had any issues. However just got my RTX 3070/Ryzen 7 5800h Legion 5 pro with 4 years next working day on site replacement warranty and unlimited support as it was relatively cheap (about £25 a year) - If they’re unreliable they’re wouldn’t be able to offer such extensive warranties so cheap. A basic 3 year return to base warranty was only about £60 off the top of my head.
Between 60-75Mh/s at 120-150w on GPU alone after some tweaking.
Welcome to the site, thanks for taking the time to post @TLRYRD :3
I agree, I much prefer Lenovo.
I'm moving there for a month then I'm moving somewhere else. Bottom line is, I can't carry a desktop around. You do know there's more to gaming laptops than just gaming right?
I upgraded from a 1060 myself and i'm loving it! The same to you pal, enjoy whatever games you play! I'm still playing age of empires 2 and dota 2 on mine...could have stuck with the 1060 (lol)
If it’s unwanted then really you should be paying for that but I believe PayPal may still do that free unwanted returns thing (maybe it’s ended - anyone know)? If the item is faulty then the seller pays or provides a label - I know lots of dodgy buyers say it’s faulty just so they don’t have to pay.
Ok. I never knew that. What about postage?
Thanks for the advice regarding keys. I hope it brings me as much joy as the Alienware brought you. First day but it does look amazing, especially when compared to my Dell running a 1060. Even basic games fell more fluid. Have a lovely day mate
All upgrades are on hold for now. Might be a deal in present market but if people stopped paying these stupid prices they would drop!! Still got my old 1070ti thats kicking out plenty of FPS at 2k. Until it goes pop ill keep my wallet in my pocket!
Surprised to see bulk buy discounting
Holy cow they'd been in stock for days and I just never got around to post ! seems like a popped it on here and woosh.
I know the current situation but it still feels crazy that I paid less than this for the half length 6GB version when they launched in 2016.
You need to put the code in when it asks and it auto applies 12months bnpl. Make the payment before 12 months for 0% interest, cash back is deducted from the credit a month after placing your order
How do u get the cashback?
Sorry typo I forgot to change (y) yes it’s a lot more expensive, I would still go for the Currys one over this, the gap in price between this one and that isn’t that big, but the power difference is. This is still a great deal though
I make it £230 more (taking into account the 20% cashback), quite a difference!
It’s like £130 more but much more powerful in terms of gfx. I think the Currys legion 5p is the best price / performance there is at £807 though. The 2060 in that thing will tear through anything and outperforms lower power limit 3060s you seen in many other brands (the Lenovo one linked above is a beast though) it’s better value over this and prob any other deals floating around
Thank you very much for your recommendations,appreciated.
My recommendations would be the magicbook pro it has 16gb, think it weighs 1.7kgs, 16.1 screen, 300 plus nit IPS screen, the 4600h ryzen can comfortably handle the games you've mentioned. Other option is the latest 13 inch hp Envy 11th Gen Intel with mx450, 400 nit touch screen. The i5 8gb version can be bought with all the cashbacks etc for under £600 and the i7 16gb version for I think £850 ish. Both have been on Currys eBay clearance grade A for under £700. Hope that helps
HDMI 1.4 means this model does not support 4K output even though the laptop is capable of 4K playback, correct?
Cheers got it now, I noticed they didnt describe it as a wva which most are but for some reason didnt put IPS in its place which is superior in my world. Tempted
Something I overlooked in the first post was that there was no aerial/stand for the WIFI card that I ordered, I gave AWD-IT support a call who asked me if there was one in the box for the wireless card - sadly I didn't get a box for it, so I assume that explains where the stand has gone to, probably in the box I was supposed to get! They're sending one out to me. Have a couple of SSDs hooked up now, got first one in very easily on the mounting brackets on the back of the motherboard tray in the case, but second one, furthest from the SATA ports on the motherboard was more tricky especially using a right angle SATA, since stretching the cables that for created a bulk which made it hard to close the case, with some careful cable management and ties I was able to get it in, but it was a little bit fiddly.
Just to say my machine arrived today. First of all, very well packaged, these guys know what they are doing and if only all builders could do that. Boxes for all the parts in the main box, aside from CPU. To confirm the RTX2060 wasn't the single fan StormX model by Palit, but was the duel fan MSI Ventus GP Edition which looks a better card to me, Motherboard was the 450M Gaming from Gigabyte, looks an attractive and compact board, which probably will help with airflow inside the case as there is a lot of space. Did some stress tests on the CPU and couldn't get it above 75C even with it running at 100% for 20 minutes. Temps have been good and as I touch the case now it's actually freezing at the front where the fans are on the SPEC DELTA case, Nice thumbscrews on the side to open up the motherboard facing side of the case and excellent cable management on that side. Once I've got a few things set-up on here and most of my existing set-up backed up, I'll then move a couple of SATA SSDs to the machine and will let you know how that goes. All in all very pleased, despite the fact they're clearly busy, you can see this machine hasn't been slapped together sloppily.
Mine was shipped today, but typically it's down for delivery for the one day recently I have been down to work in the office! I've rescheduled it with DPD for Friday and I'll report back!
That's the way the market is for graphics card now though. I would have preferred to have built my own system but the graphics card market just makes it far too expensive to consider.
Thanks man, and ill also be the bigger guy too and apologies that u read it that way. ive admitted in the past im not the best when it comes to english, (yes im english) im autisic, in this case its small words i think it more down to sometimes u can carry on a theme, i.e i do a post regarding a certain way, then then next one ill go another way, then sometimes u get that person coming on which comes on to the later one very rude n agressive (which u didnt) "u should not do it this way u bloody &&&*&" my reply: no ive gone both, and ive gone this way as folks on the other was asking, - ive just had someone moaning on the newer 4650g cos i tagged one of my 4650g cos a bloke mention 16gb, it dont matter if its one or urs, that 3060 u done, we have had better strips but there gone, so yeah ill pointing folks to that one, it does have some limitations if we move it to much but thats not bad u covered the deal extremely well. sometimes ive got to take my head out the sand too, cos pre's this year have done extreme well but they are going up, and things ive challenge which no long exist maybe best go back to the challenged one, i.e that 3500x/2060 i did after this, challenged deal = best 2060 right now as the other gone...
I got really intense over all of this because your first comment that I replied to appeared to be ripping on gamers. I misread what else you wrote about gamers so I will apologise for that and I should have made sure I re read it properly. I'm sorry about that. I got very heated over this and it's been dragged out far too much by me. I won't keep going on any longer. Good luck with your deals and maybe I'll see you around the site. I try not to jump in with both feet like they're tied in concrete next time.
Who said i was frustrated about gaming deals? never once did i say i was; i said others who come to me are so i show ALT deals. i said others that people should vote this or that, but explaining that the MASS folks dont vote CPU over GPU here. sadly ur taking every word by words as a pinch of salt n suggestion something else, ive never said i was frustrated, that u wrongly again suggestion i am, as per u wrong said i said im sick of gaming which i didnt say i was but i said others were. i listen to the community hence why alot of deals exist.
I never said you didn't make deals for gamers. It doesn't matter in this instance because this isn't about your deals or how much you help gamers because I couldn't care less about that. No one is questioning your deals or what you've done so I don't understand why you need to point it out or shout about it as if that's going to change anything. In fact the way you're pointing out makes the comments you made even more strange. If you're frustrated about gaming deals don't post them. It's that simple.
i wrote this: but i get many who ask for the "alt way" and i get tons of inbox im sick of seeing post just for gamers i get inboxes of folks who say im sick of just seeing gaming PC's ^^ not me.. and with everything else u stated regarding the market: i complete agree. hence why i do multiple deals of all types. --> now cos i said that u mention I dont like post about gaming i should skip past? ur total confused, im the one bringing them lol. it was a punt reflecting on other peoples comments over time...... jesus, and its true, its no biggie. i do all types n help loads, what u are suggesting is that i dont like gamers? when ive helped thousands? do u read my 500+deals? there aimed at gamers, but this time i made a punt that there is alt ways and passing on the share'd info standing up for the alt guy because i know the market, scan though my deals man. if it wasnt for some of the price challenge's ive done for the community u would not have half the deals on this site, u lot will never understand the challenge ive put to the firms. u think i just see a deal, oh that looks good ill share all the time? so u diss me cos of a little punt others made as i mention, u dont read it correctly, to the very person who is giving u the best gaming deals for the past 18 months on this site? FOR GAMERS!. but i also listen to others.
You are as well getting in on the madness with spare cards laying around lol. Dont think the having 4Gb vram is much difference atm I gave in end of Feb/March and its paid me back for the RX 580 8Gb (£120) i bought and gamed on for the last year in the 2 lockdowns. Its telling me my profitability is approx £150 a month now, but i gave in at half that. Without BIOS flashes or anything, just a couple tweaks in settings i googled. This pos 1650 is £70/80 a month.
Aaaaaannd.... OOS. (poo)
I have one RX 570 4GB I bought nearly 2 years ago new for 100 quid, And another ex mining Sapphire one from a deal on here I got for 50 quid, To think they are potentially worth nearly 600 quid, As you say, Madness.
Even better spend a few quid more get the Series S to play at 120 FPS.
Madness, no use for mining and being scalped to desperate gamers.
My 710 is still fine, not temping to change .all I need is to have 3 monitors, gaming is not my cup of team
I spent way too long trying to figure out why your toilet bowl had an exhaust.
This is more than enough for your children, as long as the PC has a PCI-e slot, which I think your gt 8600 already is, it's literally a straight replacement, you can even do some light gaming if you choose to :) . Btw, just checked, it's stopped to £36 now, so even better deal.
Got a 12 year old pc in the kitchen which we just use for the kids,no gaming,the card as just failed,would this be a suitable replacement for a nvidia gt 8600 256mb ddr3 card
Laughable price outside of the ... coff.. global shortage of silicone products. All upgrades are on hold for now. If rather live with aging tech than get mugged over by the present market. Until NVIDIA has a real challenger on both supply and price these prices will remain..
Yeah, FEs at Scan are the only realistic chance of grabbing a 30 series card. I managed to get a 3090FE a month or so ago. You have to be on Discords and very very quick though.
Got it through scan, was able to pick up the FE. They've got a one purchase 3000 series GPU policy so beware. I got the card on next day also. Amazon cancelled 2 of my orders, and there are so many scammers on the platform at the moment. Amazon and Ebuyer are worst for bots, CCL Online scalper prices are a joke.
Yep, I would say 9-12 months but whenever it is as soon as availability starts to turn prices on the 2nd hand market will tumble with volume thse gt710 will be back to 20-30 quid and can get back to 2nd hand GTX1x6x's RX5xx's to sub 100 again.
Which may not happen for some time. The TSMC foundry had an investor meeting recently and basically said they need to build new foundries before supplies recover.
Wouldn't recommend blowing that much on a card, they still going for about 180, can take much of the budget out when the current crop are back to normal. Myself I wouldn't go above a ton max for a card as they will be worth significantly less when the supply recovers.
Buy a 780ti
Well, you could to get it running for basic stuff like web, office, video etc and some basic and old games. There are 1030s available for ~£90 (on Amazon and elsewhere) which would offer you much better performance than this card. https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GT-1030-vs-Nvidia-GeForce-GT-710/m283726vsm77649
Mine arrived yesterday, Tuesday after placing the order Saturday morning. It was extremely well packaged and when I eventually got to the computer it appeared to be brand new. It's obviously no longer in stock so won't go on about the specs but wanted to share my experience with ElekDirect. Highly recommended and thanks to OP for posting again (y)
OK will remove
This is a great deal...shame it’s oos.
Don't vote cold if out of stock, mate. Not really the poster's fault if that happens. Was still a good deal.
