$30 Cheaper doesn't mean anything?

It means something, but the effect isn't quite the same. Before $250 for 1070 performance seemed pretty amazing. Now it would still be nice, but we've already kind of seen it with the 1660 Ti. Navi also isn't coming out for a while still, so you have to ask if you want performance in that price bracket whether it makes sense to wait.

My point was more that the 1660 Ti has set a bar that Navi has to clear. It also seems like a bit of a continuation of Nvidia constantly beating AMD to the punch, as it has the last few years.

not really.. AMD has always been ahead of nvidia when it comes to mid range cards.

I just bought a GTX 1060 3 GB card off Ebay for 64.99 U.S. free shipping, Honestly i was skeptical but seeing as they had over 10 i thought what the hell, i almost pay that much when i go out for a meal. Let's just give this a shot.

Anyways it took 23 days, it didn't actually ship for 14 days, but once they did the tracking was literally phenomenal, something i have never seen from China, right up to delivery today.

I was expecting some used card at best but nope, a brand new dual fan 1060 3 gb card is what came, no frills.... obviously, but still the cheapest i can find an equivalent 1060 3 GB dual fan card in Canada is around 329 canadian plus shipping and tax, so $354.02 while i paid $87.60 ... If i had of bought two i could of sold one, kept one and still made money ?!?

That's why the tracking was so precise i'm imagining, so i can't dispute with Ebay that i didn't receive it, still i will put in a claim, if i am out the 80 bucks it's a lesson learned, at least i can make use of the cooler, actually looked for something aftermarket for it because temps spike at 70C under load, but really there isn't much of anything.


Let my shame be a lesson to everyone...lol

Sorry to hear you got scammed but I agree don't give up. This is what eBay buyer protection is for. Show them a picture of the die that proves it's not really a 1060. Blatant fraud like this shouldn't be allowed to stand.

That being said, in general it's best to keep in mind the old rule: "If it's too good to be true..." I've seen these abnormally low priced cards on eBay before, and I just scroll passed them. Either the listing is a mistake and will be cancelled or they're trying to pull a fast one.

Oh i won't roll over, it will literally take me almost no effort to go through the motions, i'm just not really upset, i assumed it was to good to be true to start with, wasn't much coin either, but i intend to be a thorn for shits and giggles.

Was considering getting an RTX 2080 TI & putting my RTX 2080 in my 2nd system, but got the Radeon VII for my secondary (1a) system instead. (The $1200 for an RTX 2080 TI wasn't worth it.)

The prices when bitcoin was booming was even crazier. I sold my Fury R9 for a profit, and the 1070TI I bought as a replacement for $380 was selling for almost $1000 6 months later! Part of the reason I'm upgrading everything now is b/c the prices have dipped.

As a side note and b/c I was bored, here is a list of every video card I have owned in chronological order. Enjoy!

1: Nvidia TI 4600 AGP (gone)
2: ATI Radeon 9800 Pro AGP (may still have)
3: NVIDIA PNY Verto GeForce 6600 AGP (gone)
4: Nvidia XFX 7800 AGP (gone)
5: ATI Powercolor 3850 AGP (still have)
6: AMD Gigabyte HD4870 First PCI-E (still have)
7: AMD Gigabyte HD6850 (still have)
8: Nvidia Zotac AMP GTX 760 (still have)
9: Nvidia Asus GTX 970 (still have)
10: AMD Sapphire R9 Fury (sold for profit after 2 years)
11: Nvidia Zotac 1060 3gb (still have)
12: Nvidia Zotac 1070 TI (still have, in use)
13: Nvidia Gigabyte RTX 2080 (In use)
14: AMD Radeon VII (on its way!)

Feel free to post yours.
