    A year or two ago, I needed a newer graphics card because my R9 390 couldn’t handle the resolution of my new ultrawide monitor. This was when prices were crazy, everything was out of stock, and second-hand cards were selling for higher than the retail prices of brand new cards.

    I got a 1080Ti for free from someone at my workplace because they hadn’t used it for a while and would have felt bad selling it while prices were ridiculously high. He didn’t want to take advantage of anyone. Good guy.

    To pay it forward, when I upgraded my PC I gave away all the old parts (PSU, motherboard, RAM, CPU) for free. I posted about it, waited a day or two, and picked someone randomly for each item.
