Does anyone want to give it a real test? lol.

It's been a few years since I traveled, but I always took my monitors with me. Back then you'd get the monitor nested inside a thermocoule mould, so the entire screen was covered. I'd just add some towels and pack it in alongside the bottom edge of a suitcase. They always reached without any problems, even when the airline lost a suitcase for two weeks.

Newer monitors just come with thermocoule along the sides, with the screen exposed but with an airgap behind the box. For these, you absolutely need a layer of at least half inch thermocoule on the front and back of the box. One or two large sheets of this shouldn't cost more than 100 rupees at a stationery shop. Then you could use up an entire roll of cello tape to make it water proof. Again, this shouldn't cost more than 100 rupees.

If you live in the north, or in a colder place, the thick greyish-black foam used for sleeping on the floor may be more economical than thermocoule.

25-28k. Less if hes oblivious to the current condition. Never think youre scamming someone or being scammed, theres no hard prices and whatever both parties agree on is the right one.
Someone I know sold his 2060 for 38k. He had bought it for 26k. The market is just pathetic and so are the people trying to profit from it. Is it so much to ask for some decency and not rip people off. Can't really blame the buyers who are many times uninformed, especially with the current pricing situation.
Somone has a budget of 30k for a GPU so when a new 1660Ti is being sold for +/-35k they go for it, not really realising to what extent they are overpaying.

I sold my 2060 for 19k last year btw.
What is a fair price for a used Vega 64 LC with no warranty ? Seller is asking 24k.

If only you were selling now I'd buy lol.
That said the forum members here being well informed about GPUs and everything in general (not me) should actively discourage newbies from buying overpriced products (and you are); and also the sellers from overcharging, but I guess that conflicts with the forum rules, not my forte. When the buying slows down, the prices wil reduce at some point. It would be very useful if there was reference price list of some sort that will serve as a guide for those looking to buy a used card.

This is like a big ass ethical dilemma which deservers it's own thread imo. The only thing that influences the price when selling a second hand item is the amount at which you can get a comparable product, new. So with that in mind I don't think even a 30k 1660ti pricing is actually predatory cause you legit cannot get anything even close in terms of performance at that price, new. We can discuss all we want but the a guy listing his 3060ti fe for 100k on olx don't give a ****.

Honestly this is a free market & people can & will get away with whatever price they are able to sell their products at. When these big companies, distributors & retailers are busy in maximizing their profits, why should ethics apply to any individual now who is also trying to do the same? It is a sellers market right now.

Eventually everything will normalize at some point & crypto mining will crash, at that time these products will see a huge fall in prices & every buyer will try to buy stuff for as cheap as possible despite knowing the products are actually worth more. That will be a buyers market & we'll happily forget about these ethics at that time:D .

This is similar to how antiques have huge prices attached to them, yet no one checks for MRP while buying them just because of the lack of availability. All these products are, believe it or not, luxury items for most of us. Ethical dilemma only comes into picture when people jack up prices for necessities, just like what happened to sanitizer prices at the start of pandemic.

Lol, yeah. Well said. It's just a matter of principle and is up to each individual seller. I personally wouldn't jack up the price if I were selling a GPU because I'm not trying to mint money from it, I'd be happy to pass it on to somone for a normal price.
All that can be done is to guide the buyers and they can decide whether to go for it or not.

what happened to that rtx 2060 super ? did you buy it ? I'm interested in buying if available.
I've given up on my build. I'll wait till July when eip 1559 launches and this mining craze will die down and then will buy a gpu.

You can check reddit r/IndianGaming or Zoukart group on FB for used GPUs.

If you want a new, there is a RX 5600XT available on Aashirwad Computers for ₹35k.

Edit: Replying to the below comment here as I don't want to go OT any more.

eip1559 outright halves the profit miners make today and the POS shuts mining down. What will happen after eip 1559 is anybody's guess. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but yeah, the next most profitable coin after ethereum is RVN or Coinflux or Firo depending on the GPU and they drop the profitability by atleast 25% in case of Nvida cards and by half on AMD cards if you switch now.

What will happen if even 50% ether miners shift to these coins at once after eip1559? Profits will drop even further since their prices won't shoot up overnight. It took years for Ethereum to become so profitable. I am not saying that mining will be infeasible but profits should take a big time hit. And the poor soul's who are entering mining craze now buying gpus at 100% markup will be desperate to sell their hw once profits are not what they expected.

CC is here to stay, mining profits aren't.

eip 1559 is not guaranteed to reduce profitability and even if it does there are soo many cryptos that have just skyrocketed that mining won't be unviable for a long time now. Add to the fact silicone shortage due to covid and the release of new consoles, don't hold your breath expecting price reduction which won't happen until the end of the year or early next.
