RE: 2017/2018 Brony@Home vs Team AnandTech!
The whole mining ordeal is an interesting situation here in the UK because we have cripplingly high import fees and VAT on electronics anyway, so our cards have always been overpriced, however our prices don't seem anywhere near as affected, the Zotac mini 1080 ti is going for £698.99 ($900 ish) on amazon.co.uk (as a preorder with a price guarantee.) Which to me at least, doesn't seem completely unreasonable. It's still $200 over the reference RRP, but we're used to it  Pinkiecrazy

Microcenter. We have a limit on GPU purchases so we actually still have them (at okayish retail price).

If any of you guys would be interested in GPU's 1060 and up I can grab some for work for actual MSRP (or under, in a lot of cases with evga and asus). I don't mind helping other people out in the name of science. We also have the 1080 ti Strix AC holo backplated card that I super want but can't actually justify :P

so like, straw buying for people here and shipping it to them? they pay, you buy and stick in a rig where you are? how would this work? might be interested.

I'd be up for shipping them with prepayment.

I only have paypal, and I can't do a ton of cards. I can actually probably only do one per pay period at best. I'll get a list of values and such next time I am at work.

Yeah, not doing so good compared to AnandTech... they are still 1/4 of a class above us  Pinkiesad2

We still have a bunch of awesome prizes though, and a mystery thing that I'm going to do for the team. Maybe when I get a piece of property and a house, I'll build a dedicated rig to the brony@home team and let you guys vote on what project it goes towards.

Two very dumb questions: What does PPD stand for? Points Per Day?
And how do I get one of those snazzy signatures like the one above me?

Oh no. Stats outage...... I flipped when I got home from work....lost 2.2M ppd the last 24 hours. I ran around the house, restarting system after system.....

Whew, glad to see it is affecting others, not just me. :)

Do NOT panic.....(normally) everything will be back to normal shortly. ;)

PS: But AnandTech is still kicking your pony tails. :P
