    Saw this on ebay, used Nvidia Tesla K80 for $32.00

    Pretty old card but huge amount of vram and good double precision. 32 dollars with free shipping seems too good to be true but they have sold multiple with good ratings.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/NVIDIA-Tesl...EAAOSwu7RgUU4d

    edit: ordered 1
    when i posted this it said "more than 10 available / 7 sold" when i went back i noticed it was 8 sold, so i was like okay screw it ill jump on and find out, and now it's 9 sold. I wonder how many they have.

    edit2: 17 sold in past 24hrs... still says more than 10 available i think this auction was done in error and i doubt ill get one, at least there are a bunch of buyers so i feel like ill get some safety in numbers

    For that price, I kinda feel I need to buy one, even if it just sits on a shelf.

    Note: I think this is designed to use the airflow from the case fans in a rack-mount server. So I think you will need to find some way to push air through it.

    Something like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/GPU-Cooler-...-/124329274594

    I will ziptie all the fans it needs.

    edit: ill be surprised if it shows up. they are trending at $300 on ebay. i think the price or the buyout is a mistake. im guessing ill have my first interaction with ebay customer service before im worried about the cooling.

    Well I figure we have similar delivery times, let's stay in touch in regards to ebay claims if/when the times comes
    As I said before I've never dealt with them but from what I understand they're pretty good at making good on the auction.

    I got a note from eBay saying:

    We had to cancel your recent order.

    Unfortunately, due to concerns, the item listed below has been removed from the site.
    This won’t interrupt your order. But if you have any problems, you’re covered by eBay’s Money Back Guarantee and can request a refund.
    Order is canceled, but won't be interrupted? WTF does that mean? For such a small amount of money, I guess I'll just wait to see how it plays out. Pretty sure I bought a fan regardless.

    Got the same message. Im guessing he pulled the auction or someone reported it. The way the ebay message reads it's like they canceled the auction but not the orders. I sent the seller a message asking if they were going to be shipped

    I haven't heard anything from the seller. I doubt these things will be shipped and it seems like the recourse can't be started until after its expected shipping arrival date even though no tracking numbers have been given.
