I was mining with all my cards(RX480/RX470/GTX1060). I've made a nice little chunk in two months actually. I still have the RX470/GTX1060 going. I'm waiting for a 1080(supposed to be here tomorrow). I'm interested to see how well it mines...I've read it isn't very good. I'll put it in my main rig and game/mine anyway. I didn't buy it to just mine with, so I'm not concerned with ROI. I wasn't with my other cards either. I figured, they are paid for...why not mine them part-time, use the proceeds to buy more parts.(Newegg takes Bitcoin!) lol

Nice one Hequaqua, going with a GTX 1080. I actually sold my GTX 1070 last August, had a chance to sell it for same price I paid for it (mining can be a good thing). My plan originally was to go with Vega, but after seeing the price and performance I changed my mind. Too hot, too much power and too expensive. I can buy a 1080 for what the Vega 56 are going for and almost get a 1080 Ti for the price of the Vega 64.

Now there are rumors of a GTX 1070 Ti for less money than I paid for my 1070 with nearly the performance of a 1080, so I am going to wait to see how that plays out.

In the meantime I picked up a GTX 980 locally and it is a pretty decent card, get me through until I get something else.

I was going to hold off for the 1070ti, but I'm sure quantities will probably be limited, demand will be high, and the retail price will be higher than the suggested price.

I picked up a Gigabyte G1....I'm sure that will last me until Volta/Navi hits the scene.

As for the mining....just off and on....let me see....I spent 70.00 on a new case for my son. 45.00 on Escape from Tarkov. Both bought with Bitcoin. I still have about 70.00 worth of Bitcoin, and about 30.00 worth of Ethereum. I also sent a friend of mine who helped me set everything up(I was lost about mining) 20.00 worth of Ethereum. He's been a big help.

Refund?

EDIT: If you are talking about the class action lawsuit....claims had to be in last year.

EDIT II: Here is the link, Chrome says it's unsafe, for whatever reason.

https://www.gtx970settlement.com/Home.aspx

Claims had to be submitted by November 30, 2016.

In the Superposition thread. There are a few 970s there.

Hey guys i had like 14 days of warranty left on my original EVGA 970 SSC card and it was fried so i requested an RMA and got it done with and they shipped me a sealed box labeled EVGA and it's the same brand and it's sealed. Since it's sealed does this mean it's a brand new card and has warranty? This isn't refurbished? I doubt it is since it's sealed and usually refurbished ones are open boxes. And this isn't. It's completely sealed. I now wonder if this card is worth money now but i don't know about the warranty itself. Any idea how much this card can run?

EVGA 970 SSC Gaaming ACX 2.0 04G-P4-3979-KB

----EDIT---

Upon research the warranty stays the same so i would assume it'll expire since this card is discontinued however this card is sealed in this box so do you think this increases chance of value on the market in the future? Thoughts?

Cards depreciate in value as the new series are released. The only way the value could potentially increase is if there's some collector out there who is hoarding "in the box" GPUs, but there's a pretty low chance of that....

If video cards are depreciate in time then why do they price so high in the market several years or months later? I seen some video cards that get discontinued end up being more than what the retail price was boggles the mind.

An item is only worth the amount that another person is willing to pay for it. You might see cards listed for ridiculous prices on eBay or Amazon, but it doesn't mean that they're actually selling (as in people actually paying for them) for that price. I could list my 1070 for $800, but it doesn't mean that anyone's going to buy it for that price. If you're selling a 970 for even it's original value (~$300), and someone can get a card from the latest series for the same price or less, why would anyone go with the older less-efficient card? In the case of the 970, it gets beaten by the 1060 in most cases, which is about $100 less than the original price of the 970.

If someone is willing to pay an inflated price for older tech, then they're basically paying for the nostalgia. Notice how in my previous comment I mentioned a collector as being the main way a video card might be worth more to someone.... In case you somehow missed it, here it is again:

Good luck finding that person, especially when there's nothing special about an EVGA 970 SSC. It's not a rare card and the company is still in business. If you can get $200 for that card, take it - they tend to actually sell for around $160.

I apologize if any of this sounds harsh, but these are the facts.
