Dirt Cheap GPU Request - Crosspost with Tech - Whack if not allowed
I'm putting together my first build and am (along with the rest of the world) waiting on an RTX 3080. In the interim, I'm trying to get my hands on the cheapest GPU I can find that 1. Actually works and 2. Has at least Display Port 1.2 or better so I'm not fumbling with adapters to get it hooked up to a modern display. Not to actually game, or even do much of anything, but literally to just be able to finish the build, boot into UEFI and then Windows for setup, confirm all of my other components work before we get too far from their purchase date, etc.

I found a few on Facebook Marketplace for $40 or so, but they were actually decent, albeit very old, cards, which is more than I need, and more than I'd like to pay for something I'm literally only going to use to get the rig set up.

So, if someone has a potato they have sitting in a shoebox in the closet that they are willing to part with for a few bucks and a song, let me know. Username at the google mail. Though definitely also post here, because I'm not exactly diligent at checking that throwaway account

I very much appreciate, but I assume based on your account info that you aren't in the BR area? I don't want to put anyone through the effort of having to ship me something

If you *are* in the Baton Rouge area, shoot me an email and I'm happy to come pick it up from wherever and leave you whatever deposit you like

Surprised me, but I don't know him, and 1060 is oddly fricking specific

I honestly don't mind, but I won't be able to get to the post office till Friday. Just ship it back to me when you're done with it.

On the off chance that you're serious, I very much appreciate it, but I bought a stand in card this morning

Right on dude.

FWIW, Finch is just mad because he's my gaming board whipping boy.

Guy I know online (not from here) had an RX 570 4G laying around that he had no use for and was tired of being nagged by his girlfriend for having spare parts all over the place, so he offered it to me for $60 shipped

Couldn't pass it up, even though it was a touch more than I was wanting to spend, as this is something I could actively game on while I wait for a 3080, but not so expensive that I feel compelled to sell it once I upgrade.
