Yeah i know i could always sell it, trying not to take the shady route though. I'd feel bad knowing i'm ripping some1 off. Also, don't have a sellers rep on ebay

boo. Well, I didn't mean be shady about it. It's not going to matter to a miner that it black screens, though. That's why I thought it'd be perfect for a miner.

I didn't know that black screens didn't matter for miners. Have no experience with mining. I've really been wondering the same thing about Tri/Quad-CFX. 

The 3rd card would really just be working as a processor wouldn't it? So would black screens still affect me? I've brought this up in a few threads, and the post usually just gets skipped over and no1 answers me :p

 

I know you weren't telling me to like "Rip somebody off" LOL. It's just one of those gray area things. This card is the reason i'll never buy a used 290x, I considered it a few times before i bought this. Now i'll always think it's a defective card

Well, they aren't really hooking up the GPU to a screen, so no screen = always black screen. tongue.gif

I mean, if it is a huge underlying issue, it might affect miners, but I'm not a huge fan of them at the moment, as I really wanted a pair of 280x's for my second system, but had to get a 770 instead. Don't get me wrong, it's not a big deal. I've still got a spankin' awesome warranty with EVGA, but I wouldn't mind some red action just to try it out. Not to mention it'll be running a 1440P screen soon enough. Although, this might benefit me more going green since I'll be using Sony Vegas a lot on that machine, and probably some Adobe programs.

Well if you wanna play for the red team, i know for a fact i can get you a very reasonable price on a SEXXXXXY 290x :D:lachen: 

 

I'm kinda hating on miners right now too. Drove all the new AMD cards to crazy prices. It's crazy that pretty much every 290x on the market is 550MSRP.

ORLY? Awesome 290x you say? I'm in for it! lachen.gif

I'm not a fan of mining at the moment. I really just don't see the point in it. It's very volatile and just doesn't seem worth my time. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to get free monay, but explaining to my wife why we have 100+ extra on our electric bill wouldn't be easy. Not to mention I plan on keeping this hardware for quite awhile, so I'd prefer to not destroy it...

Hmph. Typed out a post on my phone, minimised the window after it said draft saved and the bloody thing erased itself.

offtopic.gif my GS4 should be here today and crafty old me decided to get it posted to my dad's work address so that I can play with it as soon as it arrives biggrin.gif

Also some more offtopic.gif had to replace the outer toe link on a Lotus Elise (Series One) so my dad and I had some fun with the grinder. Those air tools really pack a punch compared to my hobby-grade-knockoff dremel haha.

Hmmmm.... Makes me want to mod, yet no project ideas forthcoming and my bank is depleted after buying the GS4...

A beautiful Lotus Exige (Series 2) came in for a C Service yesterday, one of my favorite cars ever wheee.gif

Hijacking your thread with off topic photos of cars, only way to stop me is to post updates wink.gifthumb.gifwheee.gifbiggrin.gif

Haha, i don't mind. Lotus is an incredible car. I've taken this thread so far off topic that i'm gonna have to rewrite the OP and make a good directory when i get back to work, if i expect anybody to be able to follow this log in the future anyway.... :p

 

Definitely gonna have to make some picture/update hopping links. 

 

Still no word from Powercolor, it's been less than 24 hours tho. Not gonna have any picture worthy updates til i get my acrylic next week. Too bummed out to take unboxing pics of my new stuff. No point in putting my defective card under water. Once i buy my 2nd and have this 1st one in the rma process i'll be happy again

Okay, so I wasn't able to pick up my lense or battery grip today. The seller did a great job of using UPS Surepost or whatever it is called. Basically my "prime" shipping ends up being a day or two longer because it takes two days to get into the hands of USPS and then they deliver it to me. If this is going to be what "prime" will be in the future to cut costs, I won't be paying for it anymore. At least when I'm not a student anymore. I'm guaranteed two day shipping, you'd better bet that I want freaking two day shipping.
