The 1080ti just seems to be getting dearer. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/gigabyte-aorus-geforce-gtx-1080ti-11264mb-gddr5x-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-000-au.html why would you pay 1199 when you can get a next gen 2080ti for 999 https://www.overclockers.co.uk/palit-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-dual-11264mb...

Re: Up to number 2

I'm cleaning and re-arranging things at the moment so 92 cores and 5 GPUs are offline. They're mainly slower Xeon cores and older GPUs so shouldn't make too much difference when they come back. oh hark at him LOL. making a mint but still down just the 92 cores and 5 gpus. LMFAO. i'm beginning to se...

Re: Up to number 2

You should close the gap a bit in the near future, I'm shifting to Amicable and Cosmology after the FB sprint, neither of which pay anywhere near as well as Collatz. Good point though, I could do with getting the rest of my GPUs sorted out and back online, things are getting chilly without them :lo...

Re: 3 beellion credits

Hope the house move and holiday went well... I've been to Lanzarote (Costa Teguise) a couple of times, and it's a good place to chillax at, esp the local markets and the Cesar Manrique exhibition. We even drove up to the top of Mirador del Río - great views from there ;-) regards Tim Holiday was gr...

Re: 1 billion credits
