Wow, I must have been pretty lucky on my timing back when I bought my 280X for $300 which I then returned 2 days later due to these damn AMD cards not being able to support 3 legacy monitors without using the DisplayPort. I came back to look at it a week later and it suddenly shot up in price by over $100.

That's not lucky.
You would've been lucky to just resell it for more than you paid for, right?

Looks like $700 to me.

That's what I did with my first 280X that I bought the month before and decided to sell since I couldn't return it anymore.

Why the hell do miners think that mining with graphics cards is efficient?

We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong.
We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

It's okay--not all of us can have average intelligence.
