Long story but i have a 3060 and 3080 i dont really need.
I was thinking of selling them but then i thought is that just a bad idea full stop:
They will hold their price as used well
I live in scotland so i have the heating on a lot (though it is gas central heating) and i wfh.
I also have and mbo and psu and ssd for them but no cpu or ram.
Seems to me i would be as well mining and using them, then sell if the price of crypto or gpus drop.
I know it woukd be nice to pass on these gpus but the main reason i am selling them is because i would be happy with 2 1080s for my needs, so i cannot justify having spent so much on them. but is selling them actually a financially bad move?
Should i buy a new cpu and ram for my desktop upgrade and mine crypto?
Obviously i am not a miner, ive just been looking at nicehash etc. For estimates of income. If they paid for themselves i would be able to keep them both, which is more than i need… but when has that ever stopped anyone :).
Gpu: 3060 12gb vision, 3080 aorus xtreme
My old pc is an i5 with onbord graphics and a dead gpu. The other gpu i want is for my son, he wants to upgrade from a 1050 ti.
