 i will buy some but living out in the sticks it will probably take some time to get here

 

I'm a fan of Kryonaut and use it almost exclusively (except for when I use Conductonaut because when you're repasting laptops sometimes it's worth using Liquid Metal).

 

*Snip*

 

That's a known eGPU method and I've seen enough people use it successfully that it might be worth a try even though it likely doesn't have a 100% success rate and you will be loosing the wireless card.

Recently transferred my 1080ti to the Bulldog living room pc (right side). Great for VR, and no compromises 4K gaming (unlike Xbox One X’s variable resolutions)

Box has zero cable management features, but since it has no window then I guess it’s ok

Z270 ITX
32GB RAM
1TB SSD

I'm seriously pissed at all the bitcoin mining going on. It's making it pretty ****ing annoying when you're (STILL! >_< ) in the market for a bleeding gpu...

Yep. Don't expect it to let up much at this rate, either.

Think of this way, when the bitcoin market crashes and it will, the second hand gpus will be dirt cheap and the new ones will be heavily discounted.

If it does. It's not unlikely someone starts some different bitcoin thing and the mining starts again.

I mean there already are different mining "things" like ethereum, but bitcoin crashing would pull the whole thing down.

You might want to consider getting a pre-built, tearing the GPU out of it, and then selling the bits you don't need.

EVGA is also releasing cards on their site at retail pricing although they usually sell out within a few minutes of going up.
