Dang. I had to shut down my multi core folding for a few days as I rebuild my upgraded unRAID system. I'll be able to get that back up tonight when I get home. That'll bring back another 100k +. I took my 1080 out to build a dedicated VR machine. It's not up and running yet so that's another 400k+ I'm waiting on.

You guys are going awesome. I plan to work on a challange to you guys in the future. This will be a more active plan if I get my promotion and a less active plan if I get fired. Odds favorite is that all remains the same in which case none of know when I will mount a challenge but mount one I will.

I knew you got one in the shuffle, how did you get the others?:cool:

They were in stock in the Newegg Marketplace and I bought them. They were more than the shuffle price obviously, but they are EVGA and for about $350 each I can step them up to 3080 Tis for another 2mil PPD each.

And if I can sell off my old cards, I can probably pick up another 3070Ti relatively quickly.

Well, I'm kind of grumpy. They approved one Step-up, but apparently not from what I paid, only from the MSRP. So figure about twice as much.

Also, they denied the second Step-up, saying I had Step-up in progress for the same part number, even though they are different part numbers.

You should reply back explaining the difference.
I will after I get the first one processed. I'm kind of annoyed I'm going to be paying a total of about $1900 for a 3080Ti, but that is about what they are going for on Newegg, so I'm not feeling totally screwed over.

Once this one is done, and my debit-card has cooled down from white-hot over-use, I'll try again on the other one and email support if I need to.

Well, it won't work. looks like I read it wrong. They are saying I can only step up to 1 3080Ti, regardless of what I'm stepping up from. So, I suppose I could upgrade to a 3090 or a 3080. Not sure if the 3090 is worth it for the PPD, the 3080 would be a lot cheaper, but the PPD is almost identical.
