Hey fellas,

My GPU is dead and I have no means of replacing it in the foreseeable future.

Flight simming is my only joy left.

Does anyone have a half-decent video card not in use they could part with ? I might be able to cover shipping, depending.

Or, I am also open to any contributions towards a replacement on paypal, mech.driver@rogers.com.

Thanks for reading this.

Can you give some idea as to what you're looking for? (Type card etc)

Probably best to include info on what sims/games you play as well.

Check PM smile

Mainly flight sims, BMS and P3dV4 andso a mid range GPU would suffice (say in the 900 series etc.) since neither sim fully leverages the GPU.

I am in the Toronto area.

Thanks for the reply.

That's a pretty tough one...especially for anyone in another country.

I'd have to look and get back to you if there's anything I have that's worth it. Meantime, maybe some other kind soul will come along and help out smile

Could you possibly provide more detail about your system? Specifically, what brand/model (what we're looking for is the size of the chassis), and also how big (in watts) is the power supply? Any time a GPU is being installed, you have to consider power and space.

Thanks,

Sure thing: home built, 750w PSU, full tower chassis.

Current CPU 4670K, 16 GB RAM, not stellar but adequate.

Any luck with getting a new card yet?
Unfortunately, the only thing I have available is an old Radeon HD7870 and it's only got 2GB, so you won't be playing DCS with that.

Lots of these Chinese GTX1060 cards cheap ($70ish)
https://www.ebay.com/itm/GTX1060-6GB-DDR5-192Bit-Gaming-Graphics-Card-With-HDMI-VGA-DVI-for-Computer-KA/312784691578?hash=item48d36ba17a%3Ag%3ABoYAAOSwAyddc4ZP&LH_BIN=1

Pretty sure they overproduced the GTX1060 based mining cards and just selling off the excess.

I have a GTX 780 you’re welcome to have. It may be lower powered than what you’re looking for though. I’m in Montreal so shipping should be reasonable if you don’t mind covering that.

I think you are not trying hard enough, like one year? Just my opinion
