Damn, those are what we built the engineering desktop machines with for a while. The solidworks guys loved those.

Plex loves it for media transcodes too, its still more powerful for simultaneous video stream transcodes than most cpus

I dont get how you have been able to get so many gpus

RTX 3060 - Friend(that lives in Ohio) one the Newegg Shuffle and he didn't want it. I had a friend here that wanted one.

AMD RX 6700XT - AMD had a drop and I was able to purchase it via there website. I had a different buddy who wanted a card to replace his GTX 1660 Super in his prebuild

AMD RX 6800 - AMD had a drop and I was able to purchase it via there website. I used this in the new build I did about a month or so ago.

Asus RTX 3080 Tuf - I won this in the Newegg Shuffle. It came in a combo with a 27" Asus 1440 165hz Curved Monitor (trying to sell this). I sold this card to a friend of a friend (from a Discord I'm on).

Zotac RTX 3070 Twin Edge OC White Edition - I purchased this from Zotac drop they had. When they have a drop you get in the queue and have a chance to purchase whatever 3000 series card they have left. The buddy that got the AMD RX 6700XT wanted the Zotac RTX 3070 because he is doing a white build. He's now selling the AMD RX 6700XT.

Zotac RTX 3070 Twin Edge OC White Edition - I purchased this from Zotac drop they had. I didn't think my order would go through (they said 1 card per 14 days) but it went through. I still have this card listed for sale (what I paid - no upcharging).

EVGA RTX 3070 Ti FTW3 - I went to Microcenter yesterday afternoon to get a longer SATA cable and overheard the employee talking to a customer about having the cards in stock. I initially wasn't going to get one but then figured I could sell it to someone at MSRP that couldn't get one but ended up installing it in my PC. Now the AMD RX 6800 is for sale.

So 7 cards purchased.

4 sold at MSRP/what I paid. 2 cards listed for sale still. 1 card installed in my rig.

The points/cash back on whatever card you're using to pay for those has got to be nice!

Shipped out the 3070 this morning. Shipping (with insurance) is more than I expected. Dang.
The Zotac White 3070 is already in Virginia.

Shipped Monday. Should arrived tomorrow (Wednesday) to Georgia. Not bad.

The green case I originally wanted was a DarkFlash, too-- but when I looked again, they were out. Then, this little thing was in my recommended list!

It seemed to be pretty good-- so I'm glad it checks out.

Picking out parts to build with has been fun. For a GPU, it seems like I might need to get a GTX2XXX just to actually have something. I'll swap out when the 3XXX series becomes more available, or if someone gets one that wants to sell.

This would be the perfect one if you could find it :excited:. The Noctua fan I was wanting is actually a little too tall, so I'm opting for their low profile one.
