All the good mining hardware is out of stock everywhere, from psu's to mobos to gpu's. If you can grab any when it briefly comes in stock, easy $$$ to flip on ebay etc.

UK prices are that high. Overclockers is also never cheap. But service and returns etc are excellent. Those prices are as normal as they ever were. There may be some supply/demand variation but its not great.

Most those cards can be bought here in the US for ~$250 ....... *IF* you can catch them in stock. At least they used to be until very recently.

I often buy things like electronics, cameras, pc stuff, from the US as the exchange rate even now, makes it cheap!

At one point when I bought my van there was over 2 dollars to the pound. New, was 25K in pounds in 2007. But was 55k here! Now its way lower exchange rate. But still cheaper for us to buy in the us. Eg fuel in 2017... Here its 5.36 per gallon. Thats 7.28 US dollars.

Likewise the cost of a wheelchair van. Its 40% cheaper for us to buy in usa or canada. But looking the other way, you wouldnt like our prices!

I assume that's for an Imperial gallon = 5/4 of a U.S. gallon. If so, your gas costs $5.28/U.S. gallon, still rather extreme compared to the U.S. Today's price in Italy is about €1.40/l (diesel) and €1.48/l (lead free) which works out to $6.41 and $6.78 respectively. We swap places periodically with the U.K. for who's the most expensive.

Disaster. Had lots of snow that began to melt, and the roof leaked. Close enough to get the 7 gpu mining rig to get it wet. Its been out of harms way drying for 24hr The 6 gpu rig was half was far enough away to avoid damage and is running fine.

So now I got a mess, need to see what can be salvaged and what has to be scrapped. It would cost of $5K to replace the hardware in the drown rig at today's prices. Luckily I have renters insurance for my stuff that got damaged. Condo management will handle the roof leak.

But a big wrench has certainly been thrown into plans. banghead

Price drop hasn't effected mining hardware prices here. We jumped in in December. Figuring Ether prices ~$450 would make the rigs profitable in a reasonable amount of time. Ether is @$1,100 or so today so still extremely profitable to mine. And why hardware good at mining is being marked up by retailers, but still very hard to get.

It cost us $1,890 for the seven now waterlogged gpus alone. To replace them at current pricing would cost $4K-$5K

I have a lot of experience with wet pc's... From the days before you could buy water cooled pc's or parts. Home made water blocks, underground oxygen bottles as radiators, aquarium pumps, etc.

Well, I am very pleased to say you were correct. Got everything thoroughly dry, and the rig lives! :clap:
