I keep hearing "Sell your 980Ti or Titan X" you'll lose value. And the rub is that there are alot of posters that assume everyone here is a broke college student and "Need" to sell their old cards before buying a new one or it's a "Stupid decision". I am financially comfortable, and could care less about a GPU I purchased over a year ago, this is Toy money. I'm not insecure about anything of this sort. I spend far more on other items that should be carefully monitored. It's not a house.
- Some may be close to their budgets, in which case you should do whatever you have to do to take care of family first. Get what you can afford "only", and then sure, if you choose, treat your GPU like a Stock Market commodity. (buy / sell, short sell )
- Some may have more than enough $ resources that any high end GPU purchase can be purchased and enjoyed and done with as they please, when they please, and those people likely are not insecure about (commodity trading their GPU) or insecure about what someone on a message board says , rushing them to trade-up Now! (GPU Salesmen, I always wonder if they live here ).
I don't get it, this is OCN, and the site regularly discusses high-end-tech (read expensive). So does it make sense that many talk like they are misers/scrooge, pinching every penny? I choose to believe that I never will know anyone else's financial situation and I will not try to make anyone feel insecure about their purchase. Make up your own damn mind and Grow up.
I know this may offend some and their posting habits, and that's not my intention. Just stating what we all see here though through different lenses for sure.
