Yeah at $250 for 280x Newegg will take  1000 off your hands Smiley Even if it's $350 it will be competitive.

No it's not. You're selling complete mining rigs and shares for the same. I'd rather just get decent pricing on GPUs. Your choice of hardware setup for the rigs is not up to par with my standards. I'd never use smoke master nor Roswell ripple master nor unpowered ribbon risers.

I agree, I just want a couple decent priced GPU's I don't need a whole rig.
He has not a bad deal just not what we are looking for.

I'd definitely be interested if the price is right and the delivery time is decent.  I need another card for my mining rig and people are asking for outrageous prices on the secondary market...

I want a few dozen Sapphire 270 Dual-X. Take note, 270, not 270X. I can currently get it below 200 USD, so if your price is significantly lower than that (including shipping) then I'll order from you a few dozen of those GPUs.

Where are you getting them for under $200?!

I was thinking about using those in a couple rigs I am about to build, but that was when Newegg had a $30 rebate and I could have got them for $179 (after rebate)

Now I only see them for $219 so I decided on using the 280x instead.

Local computer stores. I just bought 4 from one (and depleted his stocks). But there's a bunch more where they came from. So I have on order a few more, just have to wait a bit.

Damn man good deal!  I tried scouring the local smaller computer stores around here last month but they were all sold out of anything worth a damn.  Might have to see if they replenished their stock before placing my next Newegg order.

Microcenter is always a great place.

We're still on hiatus until the workers get back to the factories from CNY. I hope to have updates shortly thereafter.

HAH!  No wonder I am not getting any responses about another order with my PCIe riser peoples... forgot about CNY.

Thanks for the heads up on Microcenter.  There is one in Dallas I will have to check out Smiley

Whats up? We going to roll on this idea or what? Im in for quite a few if we can get decent  prices. Do I need to contact retailers about wholesale prices through my company?

Certainly wouldn't hurt!

We are all stuck until Chinese New Year is over.  I think they start coming back to work after the 6th of February.

So today I stopped in to talk to my local computer shop and spoke to them about contacting their wholesale source on parts. The owner is a customer of mine and we have done some great business in in the past. She was not aware of what mining was in the slightest, after a brief expiation she sounded genuinely interested in helping our cause.  She told me that she would contact her wholesale distributors and inquire about getting a bulk discount. I suggested she look into 280x's and 7950's (she found me 7 7950's instantly) to see what the minimum order would be to get a break in price per unit.

What I would like to know for ya'll is what cards specifically I should ask her for and what the acceptable price per unit would be for everyone.  I told her that I would take at the minimum of 50 cards at first to try and see if I can make this work. This means that I would be putting up a huge part of my capital to make this happen and honestly I cant cover the whole order (if she finds the cards at all) and that I would have to move on this asap.

I think we should try to agree on one specific card to order to make it the least complicated as possible.  Keep in mind this lady had no idea what I was talking about when I told her I wanted to mine with a GPU.

I am open to suggestions on how to move forward with this project and would love to make it happen. I am going to try to convince her to open a bitpay account so if this does move forward we can pay her in btc and she can pay the wholesaler. I would love some input for ya'll on this so I can do my best to make this happen for all of us.

The margins on this hardware are non-existent, no matter the volume. Good luck with whatever you go forward with, but I would be willing to bet a few coins that it is a waste of time and effort.

You probably didn't bother to ask on the price on those 7 7950's did you? Bet it's over $350-400 bucks. If you order 100, if they were even available, I'd bet you'd save less than $10 ea.


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