FYI people, the cheapest GT 1030 in around here is now Gigabyte 1030 LP, 599 SEK = just above 60 euros. Pretty cheap.

Where you live, it's not as cheap everywhere else and that's not considered "cheap as chips" everywhere else.

Thanks captain. Anyhow, available in the US too, see amazon. It's positive for this comp.

When setting up something like this competition, you cannot make everyone happy.

Sub 100 dollar/euro/whatever currency is considered cheap in a world where top end GPUs cost close and over a grand. Probably not even 100 euro, but that's worst case scenario. That's less than 1/10th of top end.

Everywhere a GT1030 is more expensive than the avarage cost of the GPU in other countries, I'd imagine a Gt710 is more expensive than the avarage cost of 710 as well.

I like using a current gen card but thats just my opinion.

We could do AMD offering but without a cold bios etc you will be stuck to 0c or higher before the card freaks out.

I'm not so sure about that, has anyone tried a 550 on cold? My 580 doesn't have cold slow on the stock BIOS.

I've taken a r5 230 cold and no problems at -50c although the cheap AMD cards will underclock memory once the core goes past a certain point making them pointless to OC and until this is no longer a problem cheap AMD cards should never be used

mid month im always broke ;> but i have to say i am really wanting to try to mod a card .. just wish it was one of those cheap gtx 210 but i get the choice of the gt 1030.

first people have to figure out the mod on each card. So it will take people helping people to make it work. Years ago on ocn the gtx 210 comp was my first .. and i came real close to almost modding but my parts came late as i was not at all ready for this.

Good comp good choices and no matter what try to remember its for fun. Thanks for being nice about my request. Btw i forgot i bought a cheap ebay usb microscope that may allow me to attempt to kill a card.. so while i'm still debating i'm leaning on Hell yes.

I like the idea of new gen cards, older cards can give people with them an immediate advantage. While $100 is not relatively cheap it is in the world of gpu overclocking and newer cards should be easier to acquire worldwide.

As for cpu I don't see having to possibly buy a cheap 2 core as the right option. Pick gpu bound benchmarks and for cpu run what you brung, what you already have so free. I ran the comp last year on Haswell even though I had Skylake as an option, really saw no difference

Also as far as cold bugs go for cheap gpu's, I've only ran gt 710, gt 630 and r5 230 with oem bios and things were fine up to -85 to -100C but after an hour or 2 that would get slightly worse
