Using HD 7950s @ 600 MH/s card @ $450 card(this includes all supporting hardware such as MB, PSU, risers, etc) and the blade @ 12GH/s(overclocked) you're looking at roughly $9,000 to get an equivalent setup in GPUs. I'm sure some of this is off a bit(probably stuff 6 cards into a board with a lower cost/card) but it is a rough estimate.

Keep in mind you can resell the GPUs when you are done..


I wonder what the GPU market will look like after everyone who buys ASICS dumps their GPUs.  Wonder if I can get some cheap for gaming. Smiley

We make up a tiny portion of the GPU market. You can get some cheap HD 7970s though on eBay if you are willing to take the risk of someone shipping a DOA card. I bought a number of HD 5970s on eBay for $50-100 less than what people wanted on forums and easily $200 less than what Newegg wanted.

So sad I was really eager to have my first ASIC miner  Angry Cry Cry

,but you guys are payin crazy prices, i guess it is more a toy for most bidders, anyway like this we have more funds for our DIY project.

good luck everybody and congrats to ASICMINER (you're doing an awesome job, especially for ur shareholders)

I wish the guys behind the auction disqualifies WinVery.com and sells it to whoever is next in line. That would go to show not to bid if you don't want the items. I'm not even close to be next in line so this is not posted with an hidden agenda. I just unlike this method and wish the forum to be a cool place.

Do we know yet whether there's going to be another auction anytime soon? I just barely missed this one...

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the prevalence of users convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and of the con-artists who have followed them here to devour them.

During the auction they mentioned that next one will be a loooong wait for. Hope they are bluffing =) Just a marketing attempt, it's fine by me , i forgive them if they put up another auction =) hehe Or just send me one *i wish*

Doing so would be a breach of the auction rules, in my opinion, as they didn't state that reselling was not allowed. If they didn't want people to resell units, they should have specified this in the auction rules.

I would be next in line for those two units but I have to agree, it wasn't against any explicitly set rules, no matter what we may think of it.

You mean Toyota when they released the LFA? Stopped speculation on it, great idea for a $300k+ supercar.
