Agree - and perhaps a repurposed hardware section somewhere? I know some people have more parts than they care to find uses for, but selling them might be a decision they don’t want to make…
but offering, for FTC, unused hardware so that others might be able to procure things they currently don’t have, could help over all. I mean I know if I had the hardware I’d be hashing more. Real cash makes it a problem, and I can’t upgrade one side of my current rig as it’s all too old now.
And I just forked over my 1 and only bitcoin for a cpu and shipping – as a mining rig the cpu should be fine, but it’s certainly not going to be an upgrade over my q6600. But as far as 775 goes, the cpus are now as expensive as ever for an unsuipported tech. Oo
I just need a new machine to put things in. I can get a socket 1155 mobo for cheap, it’s the other bits that get stuck. So now I just need ram, mobo and gpu lol.
and a psu.
pity there is no local Aus traders for FTC/Hardware. as of yet anyway. The shipping makes any savings in purchases even out… at least from the only place I could find decent hardware for btc online, damn shipping cost more than the cpu lol
