Selling my Original RX 470s: A Move Towards More Efficient GPUs
All right, the time has tightened its grip around the inevitable decision that I’ve been pondering over – letting go of my original
! As the four gig models, these Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) have had their share of the limelight, mining Raven coin during the previous bull run. However, the prospect of embracing change beckons and it’s finally time to sell these GPUs.
Intrinsic Differences: Beyond the Superficial Similarities
At first glance, they might seem super similar, but these GPUs indeed have their distinctions. On one hand, we have the ones embellished with a backplate and equipped with an LED, an additional feature added through an LED button until BIOS. On the other hand, there are the plain Janes among them with only a DVI port, devoid of a backplate and LEDs.
The latter might lack aesthetic appeal, but they are unquestionably the workhorses of the lot. Delving deeper into these differences is essential to evaluate their performance and ultimately their sellable value.
Valuation: Utilizing eBay as a Guide
Opting to use eBay as a framework to determine their worth, it appears that
I could get anywhere between 60 to 100 for these GPUs, based on the demand and the discerning eye of potential buyers.
Essentially, the price one might get for these GPUs hinges broadly on who is on the lookout for them.
The Game Plan: Sell 11; Buy More Efficient
Mapping out the plan from here, I am setting my sights on selling all 11 of these GPUs. While eBay is an option, I am also considering selling them locally for potential better rates. Letting go of these original, faithful RX 470s is not about admitting their redundancy. It’s a strategic move towards more efficient and updated technology.
My long-term perspective is geared towards the upcoming bull run, and for that, I am looking at building a robust army of RX 3070s. The RX 3070s are an improved, more efficient version, bound to navigate the waves of the next bull run more adeptly.
