Hi guys,

Ben from BuyAHash.com

I am curious about this, as I've been in talks with a few people. Stores are mostly sold out of GPUs, or there are limits on what you can buy. I may have a way to purchase cards direct from the factory. The cards wouldn't be labeled nor have official warranties, but they are from OEM manufacturers like MSI, Sapphire, and the like.

The idea would be to maybe go in and purchase 500 - 1000 to negotiate a favorable price. I am not sure what the actual costs are going to be, but they'd be below NewEgg prices, but wouldn't include the AMD promo cards. My estimate (and please do not quote me) would be about $250 + S&H per GPU in the US. Payments would be via crypto and credit cards.

Would this be something that BitcoinTalk users would be interested in?

Depends on how fast delivery will be.  With dedicated scrypt machines coming out soon (hopefully), gpu mining may not be viable unless rigs are up and running very quickly.

Specs of the card would need to be figured out as well, since certain cards do much better than others due to mfg specific implementations that are beyond the scope of the reference design.

I would be interested and yes I agree with aznatama, there are even differences in the same product from the same manufacturer.

Example: The infamous PowerColor 7870 Tahiti LE there are two different memory modules used, Hynix and Elpida. I have found the Hynix is normally on an older SN card and is good for 415 to 425 kh, the Elpida is 370 to 390.

I agree completely.

I highly doubt you can get the cards. I say this as a guy working for a major business with tax ID numbers and now resale licenses, and I was talking to major distributors like two weeks before the latest bubble, LTC was still like $4. Newegg does not have a $50 markup on a GPU, more like $10 at the most. Most distributors couldn't get stock, like 60 cards of stock, and this was all before the bubble! The prices I was getting on 280x cards (only ASUS could deliver, with the massive Direct-CU 3 wide heatsink for $320 something. Sapphire would not commit to anything, and MSI was not responding. This was through several distributors, ASI distribution, D&H, Ingram, and a few others.

Check my past posts, but more importantly the timestamps if you doubt me.

Please DO NOT send me private messages asking for help setting up GPU miners. I will not respond!!!

Im interested but delivery time is going to be critical for me.

If between now and early Jan Im in for ~$500US or 0.5BTC, if late Jan Id be in for $2,000US or 2.0BTC.

If the buy isnt setup and expecting shipment by end of january Id just order from an Etailer at normal price.

For those that don't know Benny, I just want to say that he is very professional and can absolutely be trusted with this sort of thing.  I'm a shareholder in BAH and his handling of the closing of LitecoinGlobal was perfect.  He kept shareholders informed every step of the way and I'm sure that is exactly how he will handle this GB.

I'd be interested.  If you need help running the group buy, I would be glad to assist you.  These things can be tedious.
