At first I was tempted (glad I posted here and asked) but overall the deal just fell flat. He ended up asking way too much and it wouldn't have been worth it. Plus I'm not even sure my PSU (CX750M) would even be able to handle two Titan Blacks.

Wow, yeah that combo would absolutely dominate a pair of Titan Blacks. Oh I'm always looking for used stuff lol.

Ahnt Yeah it fell through. He ended up raising the price and I wasn't even super interested with his original offer. From what he said they were given to him from his work and knows nothing about them. On a positive note I picked up an immaculate (like almost NIB) R9 280 for $40 lol. Solid upgrade for a family member coming from an HD7770.

Eh, I never got into mining. But I'm not sure with the power consumption that I wouldn't even make anything lol.

Ahnt I think I'm going to offer $100 for the pair of Titans and wee where it goes. Realistically I doubt he'll take $100 but you never know lol.

I'm not super worried about power consumption. Yeah, I hear that. That's how the 760's I have now are. When both are used it's great, but with only one it's noticeable.

Didn't think of that, but very good point.

Oh no, $150-175 would be for two Titan Black's.

Unfortunately I don't. This rig will be 100% just for benching / gaming.
