When GPU prices stayed high for so long, people started to get desperate... So we went shopping for cheap GPUs on AliExpress to see what happens!
Buy a GTX 1060 6GB for a not ridiculous sum:

Buy an actually warrantied GTX 1080 for less than we paid for this one:

Well linus not all gpu release with nvidia spec. Example is my old gpu gt730. It ddr3 but have 4gb vram. And backplate is have function to protect gpu.i mean i almost broke my new gpu that haven't been tested yet. Because i try to replace cmos battery went it running and it fell to gpu make small spark sound and freeze the screen lucky after reboot it run fine (i know dont messing around with pc when it running) that why backplate was made. And having backplate make cleaning gpu more easy than brush directly to pcb full of small components that can broke easily
I've purchased plenty of electronics on both Banggood and Ali Express. Both work similar to E-bay, in that there are separate vendors in China selling things on these sites. It all works. It is all good quality, but a little rough around the edges. Excellent quality epoxy glass boards, good components, connectors a little cheap, but they work. They don't package as well as we do, but everything I've gotten from them worked fine. Sometime you can't find what you want any where else. Documentation is sparse, and a lot of it in Chinese. I'm a ET, so I read schematics, and don't have a problem with this. You can save a hell of a lot of money if you can stand the wait. As with most things, you have to know what you are buying. Returns are a bitch, but some vendors there have state side returns.
Nvidia develop the graphic card technology and China just copy..
Nvidia sale graphic card and technology. China just sale the copy product.😜😜
I use GTX1050 ti 4GB from china. just 90USD. Already 1 year use this. no have problem detected. Support for (GTA V) ultra graphic setting. No lack,no stress..😬
Give me the adress of those internet cafes that use a 1060!! 😂 The internet cafes I visited still use XP, Windows 7 if you're lucky! and they can barely handle the browser and some surfing (which anyway, is the only thing you're allowed to do there).
Neato I'm testing a hybrid of preowned/unknown/off-brand build in AUD:
- i7 960 cpu from ebay $55 +8.55 postage
- "unbranded" X58 Pro mobo from aliexpress(appears to be a knock off of the MSI x58), $102.28
- offbrand ddr3 ram 1600mhz 16gb(2x8gb), $86.09
- cheapest 120gb SSD I could find $29.15
- Discount clearance stock mac 1tb 7200rpm HDD which i reformated for windows $29.00 + $5.95(Postage)
- crappy RGB cpu cooler which actually looks much better than I expected $22.94
- my old XFX TS 550w PSU
- my old GTX 960 MSI 4GB
- windows 10 pro key $8.90
- Dell 20" Inch Ultra Sharp 2009WT $35.00+$19.85(Postage)
Total cost of the system not including my old parts is $402.52Aud I've bought off-brand RAM before (2x16gb 2400mhz) and found it was actually performing better than my corsairs so can't wait to see how this pans out I did note the motherboard seems to not list the i7960 as a compatible so bit of a leap of faith but I've found Xeons with same performance and better which are only $15 - $39 kinda wish I'd found them earlier.
I'd love to see you attempt a rig buying the most doggiest/cheapest parts you can find and see what happens and if/when it boots attempt OC'ing components.
@linus though this video is old but I just wanna say, this is 1060 5G and as I remembered, Nvidia made it because there's a lot of miners buying a lot of 1080 and 1060 at that point which results in some internet cafe unable to buy it cause it out of stock, so Nvidia removed 1GB of memory off of the graphics card because memory is important for mining
BTW here's a video that got moved from the Chinese video site bilibili to youtube they got this card from Nvidia but in order to get it, you must be confirmed to be a company that needs it
anyone ever notice that the only thing linus ever mentions he pays for comes from aliexpress? all his name brand gear he gets free. that along with the constant sponso spots before and aft of vids makes me not watch his stuff and why I have unsubbed, i dnt need to sub to linus if i want to see bought and paid for adds, i can get that with mobile games on my cellphone
Linus, I found this rtx https://m.newegg.com/products/N82E16814500458?ignorebbr=true&source=googleshopping&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-Mobile&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-Mobile-_-pla-_-Video+Card+-+Nvidia-_-N82E16814500458&gclsrc=aw.ds&gclid=Cj0KCQjws5HlBRDIARIsAOomqA1m6A4I8OjtFlqghn-5axk6HPNk8MTUGk3ruIIy8pYHVmaBMsJA4I0aApL-EALw_wcB
Hmm I used to use what you're talking about before I bought a new PSU. I'm still using the same GPU and it doesn't seem to have been damaged in any noticeable way, regardless; I wouldn't keep using a 6pin to 8pin for long use, something about that seems a bit risky.

That orange tape is Capton tape. It's there to protect the card edge connector from solder, but that's usually used for protecting mounting hole pads from wave soldering. Probably the board is getting way too much solder paste in assembly, and the only way they can make sure no extra liquid solder flows on the connector is to protect it with Capton tape?
Gandalf as a Maia (named Olórin) before leaving the Undying Lands.
Originally called Olórin , he was accounted as the wisest of the Maiar (with the possible exception of Melian). He was a Maia of Manwë and Varda. He also served under two other Valar, such as Irmo and Nienna. When the Valar decided to send the order of the Istari (also known as Wizards) to Middle-earth, to counsel and assist all those in Middle-earth who opposed the Dark Lord Sauron, Manwë and Varda decided to include Olórin among the five who were sent.
At first, Olórin was nervous and described himself as too weak and too afraid of Sauron. Manwë understood, and told him that that was one main reason why he should go, to overcome that fear. Thus, he insisted that Olórin should go as the third, but Varda convinced him not to include Olórin as the third, but as the second. Olórin agreed, and prepared for his departure from the Undying Lands with the other four wizards.
Arrival in Middle-earth.
When he arrived to Middle-earth, he received Narya, the ring of fire, from Círdan the Shipwright. Olórin, renamed Gandalf , spent many centuries walking among the elves as a stranger, learning from them and teaching them. He later revealed himself as one of the Istari, and eventually became known as the wisest of and most powerful of that order. He joined the White Council, which was formed to investigate a dark power in Dol Guldur, of which Galadriel wanted him to become the leader, yet Saruman came to lead the Council instead of him. Although Saruman was initially more powerful and more knowledgeable about many matters regarding Sauron and the Rings of Power, and was head of the White Council before the War of the Ring, he later grew jealous and afraid of Gandalf,  which was the reason of his betrayal.
