Free R9 270

I have a Gigabyte R9 270 2GB to give away. 


You pay shipping. 

Canada preferred but will send to USA if nobody steps forward.


OCC has been very generous to me over the years and I wan't to give back a little bit. 


Who wants it?

Saving windows 7 updates

09 April 2018 - 01:50 PM

Is there a good way to save all of the windows 7 updates so that I don't have to use bandwidth every time I setup a system?

I am considering using windowsupdatesdownloader.com but I have no idea if that's a safe or good way to go.


How do you guys tackle this?

Build for my Brother

04 March 2018 - 06:10 PM

Hi guys, 


My brother wants a system so he can play PUBG. I've got an R9 270 laying around that he can use. I tested it on my main system at 1080p and it did well. I've also got a spare system with an A10-7800 and 8gb of ram but it just doesn't seem to cut the mustard for that game. 


He is thinking about building a system. Can you guys recommend a very budget friendly build that we could put this R9 270 into? I think he wants to game at 1080p. I want to get a good quality power supply and a case that's friendly to work with so he can upgrade over time. Don't worry about monitor etc. we will stir up some used stuff I think. I've also got an HDD he can use.


He is also interested in VR but I don't think this video card will handle that.




What is this card worth

Hey guys. I just picked up a system with a Gigabyte R9 270 that I am considering selling. I'm pretty sure it wasn't used for mining or anything like that.


This one:




What is are cards like this selling for today?
