Looking for a GPU (RTX 3060 or 3070?) for my son

So , did anyone upgrade their GPU over Christmas and have an "older" one for sale ? My 17 yr old son is giving me the gears that his RTX-750 just doesn't cut it anymore. (... it wasn't cutting it when I gave it to him 3 years ago ! hihi ) I'm looking for something in RTX-3000 range. (3050, 3060, 307...

Re: FS: Cruis'n Exotica Boards (x2) Partially Working

To be honest, I don't actually remember selling them,
but I'll have to go digging around to see if I still have them stored somewhere.

I think the point RAB is trying to make is that Mike's company is Pinball MEDICS , yet the word "Medics" (which is a key differentiater) is not used in promoting this event an...

Wusa advocacy government?! WTF are all these hiden fees
To be honest, I have no idea what half of those fees are.

"Apparently" you can dispute some, but is it worth the hassles for a few $100's ?

Maybe when my son gets into the later years ( 3 & 4) we'll know what they're for.

So your asking 11 159.77 $ for either pins, or is it 6985.00$ for the tuition only? $11,159 (more or less...) . [ As you can see, I'm not very motivated to sell ... ;-) ] Sorry, I would NEVER sell either pin for $7K. 1000$ for ice skates? How old is your yougest son? Is he still in highschool? Yes....
