Hi,

I'm about to upgrade my GPU's so I have 6 x 780ti's for sale. Looking for 120 each or 600 for the lot.
All in good condition and full working order.

I've been rendering using an external frame so they've always run quite cool, even on full load.

I should note that these cards are something special, especially for someone who wants to get into Octane for cheap.
The 780ti has 2880 Cuda cores so bang for buck, its a fast rendering solution.

2 x Gigabyte Windforce 3GB 780ti
1 x Palit Jetstream 3GB 780ti
1 x ASUS 3GB 780ti
1 x EVGA 3GB 780ti
1 x GAINWARD Phantom 3GB 780ti

If anyone fancies grabbing a bargain then let me know.

Cheers

Wow - just bought a 1080Ti, if I'd known you were going to sell these I'd have jumped on them! Someone's going to get a great deal!

(Need to pick your brains about your external frame next pub meet) :thumbsup:

I bet the 1080ti kicks ***. Sadly too pricey for me so I'm looking at 6 x 980ti.

The external frames are by a company called Amfeltec, based in Canada. I've used their GPU 'cluster' frames both at home and at work and they've always been great. You can daisy chain the frames too to get a heap of GPU's running. We had 9 at work over 2 frames and on board. I just use the one frame and 2 x gpu onboard to give me a total of 6.

I've been looking into GPU boxes, but this kind of open-frame concept kind of scares me; what about noise, heat and dust? I suppose it isn't something you would keep on your desk... Or would you?

No it's certainly not something that you'd keep on your desk. I tend to only use the rig/frame for final render, so I'll not even switch it on while I'm working on a scene. I keep it in a cupboard and bring it out when required, so dust isn't an issue for me.

It is noisy yes, but it needs to stay cool so I use a large desk fan to keep temperatures down.

It's not the tidiest as all the cables etc are exposed but the upside is it doesnt need water cooling due to there being no case. I can happily render at under 50 degrees C on full load with this.

Thanks for that Si - I'll bear that in mind if/when I run out of room inside my case. Neat solution!

i found some ok 780ti deals locally (Norway)

Saturn, you might wanna try ebay or such... :)

Ebay is the place really, you can grab a 780ti for around 100 or equivalent.

They really are great cards for the money...not far behind the 980ti in terms of cuda cores.
