What was your go to gaming gear before stadia
SINCLAIR ZX Spectrum
Sega Megadrive (Genesis)
Sega MultiMega (CD-X) Megadrive failed this was a replacement
PC (RADEON HD 8570 I think)
PC (Another RADEON HD 8570 Xfire)
PC (RADEON R9 270x)
PC (RADEON RX480 8GB)
When I went to PC I didn't see any point buying any more consoles I just didn't have the time to justify the costs anymore I already had a PC and at the time I was mining bitcoin in a big way so had plenty of graphics cards to use after the end of their useful life when ASIC miners started hitting the market so put a couple in my PC and joined steam and later upgraded to an R9 270x and then the RX480 also have a GTX1050 in my laptop although that's barely used now since I got a Chromebook
Item in question: http://puu.sh/mXymZ/da92a4b31f.png item on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/HIS-Turbo-DLDVI-I-Graphics-H270XQMT2G2M/dp/B00FNHVVP8 got it as a gift a year or two ago, but i already had a gigabyte 270x so i just plugged it in to make sure it worked and then put it back in the box and placed it in my closet, would have accepted paypal but i need to verify a few things for them (address, social etc) and i havent come around to doing it, so my account is limited with them looking for 100 (or best offer, minimum 80), around 10 of which would be shipping, will ship out as soon as i convert the bitcoin to cash through coinbase (direct transfer to my bank account, should take 2-5 business days) edit: oh right, local pick up is ok too, ill even give a $15 discount (so 85) if you're willing to come pick it up in the Miami area
Hello all, I am looking to sell a couple of graphics cards, I sold a couple of items on this subreddits and on other subs as well. I ship from california via USPS within 1-3 days of receiving payment. As soon as it's sent out I provide tracking numbers. Timestamps: Link Sapphire r9 380 4GB Nitro (comes with backplate) SOLD Diamond r9 270X 2GB SOLD I had the 380 for about 4 months and it ran like an absolute champion. It's fantastically overbuilt and I can almost guarantee that it will look awesome in any setup. Really nice card and I'm sad to part with it. The 270X I previously bought off a bitcoin miner and used for about 7 months while I was building a new system, so it's had some hard use. Gladly, I have not had a single issue with the card at all, so it should have plenty of life still to give. Please feel free to PM with any questions or offers.
My fiancee is the reason I'm on the doge boards-he saw Doge while reading about mining bitcoin and has now become obsessed. It's the topic of every conversation in our household...so I gave him the gift of doge for Valentine's day! He is now set up with 2 PowerColor Radeon R9 270X Devil Graphics Cards and a Corsair 760watt Platinum Power Supply. To the moon!! http://imgur.com/Wi1Uq0B http://imgur.com/eeZ32Nh
Hi all, So I'm new to mining and after spending a day researching, I feel that vertcoin is going to be something worth spending time and effort into. To be honest, I looked at bitcoin awhile back but then was too confused and there wasn't the support available. I feel that this time around I should be able to get further ahead. With that said, I have some questions for you all:
I have a desktop and laptop. The desktop has a single R9 270X graphics card while the laptop is a MacBook Pro late 2012 version (on board video). Should I try running a miner on both?
I don't use the desktop much now since the HDD recently died. I was thinking it would be easier to run off a USB after reading about SMOS Linux. Will this distro work for vertcoin?
With vertcoin gaining value, are most people holding onto it for now or trading it to bitcoin after they mine it?
[Discussion] How does TDP translate to Heat, Power Consumption, & Noise?
I built a system a few years back that used Intel's HD3000 integrated graphics. This was back near the peak of the Bitcoin fervor, and the best bang-for-buck cards were in such high demand that you had to get very lucky or pay a 25% premium to a reseller. I was counting on graphics card technology to advance and the Bitcoin market to have a correction, so I went with integrated graphics and left myself some room in the case and some 200W of overhead on my PSU. Now I'm looking at the Radeon R9 family (specifically the 270X) and I'm stunned at the high TDP numbers. 150W seems like a lot of heat, noise, and power draw. I understand power = heat (and watts are a unit of either) but I'm having a little conceptual trouble wrapping my head around it. So, a few questions:
Does 150W TDP mean that the card draws 150W at full power, or does it radiate 150W heat at full power?
My GPU's TDP is only 95W, so a 140mm fan keeps it cool and is relatively quiet. Will a 50% higher TDP mean two (three?!) more fans and more noise? How bad will it be?
What is the GPU likely to do during downtime? Will it go to a very low power-draw mode, generating very little heat? Do GPUs today know how to turn off the fan when it's not needed?
Is there any hope of getting a fanless or silent R270 or R270X?
It's been a while since I've had a discrete GPU in my computer so I guess I need to understand what's "normal" now.
Okay so I'm trying to finish my build and the last thing I need is a graphics card. I was gonna get an R9 280X but fucking litecoin/bitcoin miners (I'm salty as fuck about it, fuck you) buy them all up and the prices shot up everywhere, and they're all out of stock, and the places that still sell them at $300 are reseller only, not consumer (which is fucking stupid, just take my damn money). I'm primarily going to play Battlefield 4 @ 1080p, my CPU is an FX-6300. I wanted the 280X to get BF4 for free and so that it'd run super well on ultra. Should I just go for a GTX 700 series card since those are actually available? Should I just go for a 270X? Would a 270X be enough to get 60 FPS on High-Ultra @ 1080p in 64 player settings?
Any reason to go full ATX with this build? New to this.
Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do) Yes. What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better. Wanted to learn how to build a PC, was given a R9 270X graphics card by someone tearing down their bitcoin rig. Thought I'd build a decent gaming PC around that part. I'm definitely not at the cutting edge of PC gaming, but I'd like to play games like Skyrim with decent performance. If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, FPS, game settings) Best answer I can give: 1080p resolution, consistent 30+ FPS with high/medium graphics settings. Whatever I can get from this graphics card. What is your budget (ballpark is okay)? Including what I would have paid for the graphics card, something like $600, more like $500 without it. In what country are you purchasing your parts?

Provide any additional details you wish below. Main questions: 1. Is there any reason I should be going full ATX with the mobo and case? 2. Is the PSU overpowered for what I'm asking it to do? 3. Are there any obvious incongruities in this build? As I said, I'm very new to this, so any feedback is welcome. Thanks Reddit!
Im kind of new to all this stuff, few questions for you guys
Ok so i have a Radeon R9 270x GPU and I plan on GPU mining. Im kinda just starting out of nowhere so I don't have much background in any of this stuff. All i really know is I need a cgminer, a wallet, a pool, and a worker(miner). I'm just not sure about a few things: -How will medium/high intensity mining affect my graphics card? --What is an average intensity setting using the miner?(between 8-20) ---What will happen to my GPU if I go too high? -If anyone else out there has a Radeon R9 270x, what settings do you use in your miner?(intensity, temp, all the good stuff) -How do mining pools work? --Are some more or less profitable than others? -Does it take more power to mine currency than it does to play games? --How much is the average electricity cost?(500watt i think) ---If I want to add a Radeon R9 280x GPU to my computer would I need a higher wattage? -Would it be better to change what I mine everyday to match the most profitable currency of said day or to mine one type of coin and wait for the price to go up? --If I mine one specific coin should I mine an unpopular one and wait for it to go up or a slightly popular one or......any personal favorites you might want to share? ---I've only tried mining once with cgminer once, but if I do end up switching currencies everyday can cgminer mine most/all of them? ----How do i get actual money out of each different coin, do I have to convert them all to bitcoins, should I trade them, and whats the best option? -How does block difficulty come into play and how does it change between coins, what else does it effect. Etc.? [I know this is a lot of questions, but all opinions and answers are much appreciated] [Please comment if you would like me to number the questions] [I might edit in more questions, will mark those seperately]
I've encountered a problem that's making me tear my hair out practically. Yesterday, the graphics card in my PC (Zotac GTX560) up and crapped itself with what looked like dying VRAM. A reseat and some lung-destroying dust-blowing helped none. I had luckily bought an MSI R9 270x to use in a bitcoin mining rig, with the intention of upgrading my PC with it after making back some of the money spent. Except it does nothing. Confused, I tried both of my monitors in both ports, and every type of VGA adapter I had, and the PC simply refuses to even post with the 270x in. No beep, no display, and the PC shuts off instantly when the power button's pressed. I reseated it three times thinking that was the problem, before I put the 560 back in, fearing I had fried something. The 560 actually booted up all the way before crapping itself again in an ever-shortening loop, which was odd. Putting a 9600GT in showed me that it's not an issue with the slot, and the 270x is currently running happily as can be in its original rig still, it simply, absolutely refuses, to post, in my desktop. The fans spin up, so it has power at least. I even unplugged all of my drives to ensure the 650W PSU was giving it more than enough juice. I only have that one PCI-E slot to test it with, but some googling told me that the 270x seems to have random issues with certain slots. Can anyone confirm this, or do I simply, somehow, have an incompatible motherboard? It's an MSI P67A-C43, with PCI-E 2.0.
Recently upgraded to Windows 8.1, Windows explorer seems to Freeze and "Display Driver has stopped working" occurs sometimes.
I bought a r9 270x and upgraded my system to windows 8.1. What I've noticed is that sometimes when I boot up the machine, windows explorer seems to freeze. At first I would get the freezes and after a few minutes catalyst control center would tell me "the display driver has suddenly stopped working", I've only ever seen this error on unstable overclocking of the graphics card but I haven't been overclocking. One of the reasons I clean installed windows 8.1 was because I had a bitcoin mining virus that I couldn't remove before the install. The virus had my GPU running at 100% when it was on but it couldn't have been on for more than an hour or so as I immediately noticed what the virus was doing while my computer was idle. I don't know if it's a driver issue or windows 8.1 issue but what happens is that everything on my screen looks as if it's frozen but my mouse moves and keyboard commands like "ctrl + ALT + Delete" work. I can even open the start menu but I can't scroll or click anything. Even when I do try to ctrl alt delete, the new screen pops up but I can't click on anything as it seems the UI is still frozen. The only thing that fixes this is restarting the computer and even then sometimes I have issues. Is this just a problem because of the new beta drivers or should I look into sending my graphics card back to Newegg?
