    Even in November 2019 & December 2019 i had some members on here telling me i be crazy buying a 20 series as the 30 series is getting released very soon :rolleyes:
    I wasted about 4 months before buying one in march due to listening to this crap

    It's a matter of perspective I guess, some people can be so impatient when it comes to upgrades.
    Ultimately I prefer to buy near the beginning of a product life cycle rather than near the end of one. (Unless you are discount hunting).
    I find you suffer less buyers remorse that way.

    With second hand prices being not far of brand new prices these days and cards at the end of their cycle keeping value all the way until replaced, it makes a lot more sense buying at the start of a graphics card life cycle.

    It’s probably 2 months away, but he’s likely to be right about the price Turing value should be starting to fall now

    2 months is optimistic!

    Fact of the matter is that the value hasn't dropped. Don't think any seller would agree to factor in 3000 series being 3-4 months away when pricing for new GPUs aren't even doing that.

    We're sort-of-tracking 2018 where Turing was revealed early in the year and the gaming GPU followed in late August.

    What are peoples thoughts on buying used GPU's? How often do they fail or have problems? considering buying something used to tide me over until the next gens come out.

    Some people may call it impatient but i would call it wasting many months of my life waiting around for the latest thing to come out

    If am not happy playing my games with the low FPS i was getting there no way am going to wait around for about 12 months to upgrade just to try save a few hundred quit..

    I got a 9800 PRO back then, fantastic card. Next CPU will almost certainly be AMD. I'll see what offers the best fetures before I decide on GPU, be that AMD, Intel or Nvidia. It's never a good idea to limit your own choice.

    I've never had a GPU fail on me. It just comes down to GPU failure rate - it's pretty low. I had a second hand 1070 for 18 months, thats the only second hand PC part I've bought, no issues. Resold it recently, just wrap it in an anti-static bag+airbags etc.

    I've had two or three die on me. The first was an ATI Radeon 9000 years and years and years ago. Failed fairly soon after I bought it.

    The third I attacked with a hoover and destroyed by sheer force of idiocy :p Also AMD/ATI, but not exactly their fault ;)

    Try to get one with a bit of warranty left if you can, but we're out of the mining craze days so you're a lot less likely now to get one that's been thrashed to hell 24/7 than, say, two years ago.

    Well I've just sold my RTX 2070S for 426 quid.

    Bring on XBOX Series X, PS4, Big Navi, RTX 30, I'm in the market for whichever will be best now

    They tend to be over priced is my experience because people seem to forget about warranty and risk which pushes the prices artificially high. Good for sellers though, but they also have to deal with BS, returns and people trying to rip them off with auction sites favouring the side of buyers of seller usually so if the price is high the sale is fragile unless you know/trust one another.

    2 months for an announment, not the release that puts us into mid-August feels about right. Value is dropping because people are waking up to the news and rumour noise which is starting to solidify now. I wonder what OCuK will do with all their 2080Ti stock?

    Increase the prices, probably.

    I mean, they have 9900KS CPU's on sale at the bargain price of £1500.
