I'm going to keep using the 1080 Ti. You are correct. GPU is going for over $1,000 on eBay and Amazon. I'm just tossing the case.Wait that's still a good system why toss it?
You can probably get like $500+ for that 1080 right now. Some are going for about $1,500 on ebay.
But do you have a i7 4790K box? Think about it. You could be the first one on your block with the original box. Collect them all! Put it in a curio.I have a bunch of passive cpu coolers sandwiching my cable modem. Pretty sure have a bunch of coolers with fans as well.
But yeah not paying like 10 grand for a cpu lol. Probably stick with 8 cores and go Xeon route. Even the 8 core Epycs are crazy expensive. I'd probably be building 3 VM servers anyway to create a proper HA cluster.
Dell must be getting them at better prices then. I was looking at just the CPUs alone. They seem to be in the upper 1k to 10k range.Eh? 24 core 2U Epyc servers from dell is like C$8400 with 256gb ram brand new.
HA is stupid for home lab.
