At first I thought you meant because you spent all your money on a gpu and now can't pay rent.


JustARandomGerman

Decisions were made.


Alternative_Chair630

I've got to say, the water looks very realistic outside.


killr0o0

Wow what graphics card is he using for the rain


Electro_Spot

Looks like an AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT


A_Very_Horny_Zed

More like Rain-deon


killr0o0

LMAOOO


AspireBolt

Take my upvote


jadedea

More like Rainde-on amirite??


killr0o0

Hmm ima need the game settings


siva2514

Rain = real


killr0o0

No the graphics card is rendering that rain


_Clint-Beastwood_

That's what the r in rtx stands for.


-Cookie-Monster

Rain tracing


iAmmar9

Change graphics, shadows, and water to Real


killr0o0

Thanks


FiftyL9

20/20 vision


GrossPet

rainedon rx 6700 xt


BigPowerBoss

No way, it must be nvidia gpu since amd cards don't support physX


WilliamCCT

The GeForce RLTX 9090, featuring real-life-Tracing.


killr0o0

Fr nice


mathkor89

Might have had the and equivalent of rtx


aussyluk

Lol that's what I thought too


Assailent

Wait that’s not irl...


Altruistic_Grand_455

He went from GPUless to homeless instantly


Tots2Hots

He did. And he can't afford a train ticket eithe rprobably.


butterize

what *does* it mean though I’m confused


morbis83

OP didn't want to get the new stuff wet. He said he also had a PSU in his backpack.


butterize

ooohhh lmfao I’m dumb thanks


yourbrokenoven

I'm right here with ya bro. Thought the op spent all his money or something.


stevethorn

I mean he didn’t NOT say that.


AHSAN12342

Send me your location i will pick this up for you, so you can easily walk in the rain


[deleted]

I know that Sydney train station :)


babbleshack

Looks so much like the UK!


C5-O

The one thing that did it for me was the "Mind the gap" on the edge of the platform, I have only spent a total of one week in london (and the uk in general) but that announcement is still stuck in my head lol


AMRNS

Mind the gap between the train and the platform


NorthenLeigonare

This is Piccadilly station. Change here for Central line.


cr1spy28

*beep beep beep beep*


sandeep466

For me, I visited london once and the announcement "See it, say it, sort it" stuck in my head for years now. Damn


captainarthur2008

If you see something that doesn't look right, speak to staff or text the British Transport Police at 61016. See it, Say it, Sorted.


LimesFruit

Haven't been on a train for about a year. I managed to forget it as I had more important things to think about.


kishoresshenoy

The metro in my hometown says the same thing. However, I live in India.


C5-O

British 'explorers' be like: "I miss the announcements from the underground" lol


StillPracticingLife

Granted I ain't visited every UK train station but I've never seen blue bobbly paving at the ones I have.


Vigorousjazzhands1

It’s called tactile paving, it’s there for the blind to know where to go/where not to go :)


StillPracticingLife

I'll probably still call it bobbly paving but at least I'll have an explanation for it.


Leon-Kowalski

looks like east croydon


YouBetterRunEgg

Sydney->UK migrant- the thing that gave it away for me as Sydney was the blue strip and the old-timey arrivals/departures board. But $Aus prices also made me think that OP had just decided to live at the station.


NorthenLeigonare

I mean the departures boards that Nottingham has are "old" I guess?


NoFunction404

And considering it's raining, it isn't far fetch to think that


Khalbrae

I swear it looks identical to the one at the end of The Woman in Black


Arpyboi

Looks like Ireland


TheDudeColin

I was honestly convinced it was a trainstation in the Netherlands that I know. Do all train stations look alike?


birjoo1

Judging by the time of this post and location with rains in address, I think we can deduct his address and then we raid at midnight.


Soccermad23

I 100% know that's Sydney because of the station design (the tactiles and the "mind the gap") and also the fact that it was literally bucketing down and thunder a few hours ago.


phapphatboi

That’s not Sydney it doesn’t rain in Australia you liar


THLS20

Of course it doesn't rain, Australia is a myth


[deleted]

My whole life... a lie?


phapphatboi

Yes it is

Oh ok then random internet stranger

kcrab91

An upside down lie at that.


LordKiteMan

Yep. Head on over to /r/AustraliaIsntReal to see all the evidence.


AHSAN12342

So that's why my friend who moved to Australia doesn't call me back


Veezo93

It rains fucking spiders and that hyena shark zebra thing


DarrenGrey

Wouldn't the rain go the other way?


CrabSully

At first I thought it might have been Melbourne (my city). I can't describe why this station looks so Aussie to me


killerjerick

From Brisbane, also had the same thought, from further analysis I believe it’s a symptom of the old decrepit architecture mixed with the terrible infrastructure of our rail network, the civilised world (Japan/US) uses trains built in their respective country made to measurement, we just kind of wacked down stations wherever, no regard for heights, bought a bunch of trains from China/India said “she’ll be right” realised they weren’t right, so did some ghetto modifications so they sit on our poorly designed tracks (bends and turns because of our hectic city designs) Lo and behold, some stations require you to step up into the train, some tell you to “mind the gap” some are perfectly aligned.


DevDevGoose

I can't see anything that identifies the station but it looks like the UK London Overground/Underground. It was also chucking it down with rain this morning so it makes sense.


hyperpiper21

It’s in Australia, All too familiar


peck112

Confirmed. OP talked about $$ not real money.


AHSAN12342

It's Australia ingleburn confirm by op in comments


xAlex79

Op is gone... you can't hang out at Ingleburn station with anything worth more than 50 dollaridoos. I mean that station is like South West. He should have risked the rain. Now he will never be seen again.


rabidandy

Chuck it into one of the station computers, download some games and you're all good.


Alternative_Chair630

Next station : Ultra


thorium220

Suddenly Cityrail is on time, reliable and faster than the shinkansen. That's how this works right?


Kevo05s

If you don't install train simulator I'll be disappointed! Welcome to the RX6700XT family!


No-Honeydew-8593

It's in a bag inside there. You'll be fiiiine....


Alternative_Chair630

The PSU in my backpack is what scares me 🥺


Alfierri_2896

They should come with plastic/antistatic bag, just wipe/blow 'em dry before opening them up. Anyway, cheers m8.


Alternative_Chair630

Thanks man, I was going to wipe everything down as you said like with a towel beforehand. As the PSU has the plastic seal that's in my backpack, and the card is now in 4 shopping bags tied on each bag. The shop I bought it from wouldn't give me another bag. Seriously. $1300 sale and I couldn't even buy another bag (it was sunny at that point in the day) I need a crutch to walk so I've been alternating this with shopping, have set up a new base of operations outside another retailer, waiting for some break before ordering an Uber. tl;dr Never forget to bring a towel!


Alfierri_2896

*Such endeavor, your rewards shall be plenty of FPS.*


GothicArchitecture_

A towel is the single most important item when Hitchhiking through galaxies


Adama0001

And here’s another perfect example why. Since OP needs to move quickly have they considered trying to miss the ground during a fall?


Psychosmith666

Always know where your towel is!


UnClean_Committee

Dude I feel for you. My heart sank a little more with every line I read. My worst story (not quite as bad as yours) was getting caught in a monsoon rain in India with my guitar and amp in hand, no plastic bags, guitar bag was tattered to fuck. That was a terrible day.


bigfatbooties

Yours is worse. A waterlogged guitar is basically garbage. Electronics are not hurt by water at all as long as they are cleaned and dried before powering on.


rinkima

Not if water gets to internals and rust


bigfatbooties

That would take a while to happen. I'm assuming the OP doesn't actually live in a train station so they should be able to dry it off pretty quickly. Maybe consider buying some isopropyl to clean out the PSU to prevent this, but even that is probably unnecessary. Just dry it completely right away and you're good. Put it in the oven at minimum temperature for an hour or two and it will be fine.


UnClean_Committee

It survived in the long run but I ended up having to replacing all of the internals and leave it next to a dehumidifier for a couple of weeks. I'm very lucky that there was no permanent warp on the neck


HotNeon

International towel day might be in may but you should never leave home without one


gooch_lickers

$1300 for the video card!! Dang I got mine at $950 and I thought that was expensive.


Alternative_Chair630

$1150 + $150 for the PSU upgrade, I sold my RX580 8GB and decided screw it, put that money in and used afterpay, Payed the first 3 installments so only one left :) Edit ; you're right, It's a bit ridiculous. But... I sort of needed this, for my own sanity at the moment. I also figured it'll take quite some time for prices to mediate back down, so might as well pull the trigger now.


gooch_lickers

That’s how I felt as well, screw it! I had a gtx 970 before upgrading so it was a much needed upgrade. Hope your enjoying your card so far!


palmerboy117

Still rocking that 970 over here !!!


gooch_lickers

That thing lasted me from 2014 till earlier this year. It’s a solid reliable card! Even had coke spilled on it and it still ran fine after cleaning it up with rubbing alcohol.


palmerboy117

My one is an EVGA. Got it as a hand me down from my son a few years back. I know it's probably frowned upon by a lot of folk for being old and outdated but does me just fine I'm in no rush to change it.


WeeaB01

ik how it feels to rock that RX580 and rock its OC'd world. I pulled the trigger way early in bad prices and got a 3060 for $1000 after selling my RX580 for $400 (yikes!). but either or worth the upgrade. my RX580 wasn't doing me all that well after awhile and felt like I needed something tad better haha hopefully you got it home safe though


abra5umente

OP is in Australia, our prices are fucking insane at the best of time. This actually isn't too far outside the realm of normality for a flagship GPU lol. I do remember the good days, where I could buy a GTX 970 for $520 in 2015. Sad times.


robot_boredom_

you forgot to bring a towel??? sorry man i lost all sympathy after that, you should have known better

raaneholmg

I hear great things about this water-cooling concept.


hara0329g

As long as it's not a Gigabyte you should be fine..


derangedsweetheart

Is it a Gigabyte unit?


JBrad0322

Yeah you can see the plastic bag in the shot this post makes no sense at all.

you could probably trade that box for a ride home i guess


Clancyp92

That's a Sydney station if I've ever seen one


Potato_Dealership

Looks the same as Melbourne lol, but we don’t have the ‘mind the gap’ on the floor


rorymeister

Yes we do. I've seen it


Picturesquesheep

Ahhh right. I was trying to work out where in London it was, didn’t know other countries had “mind the gap”.


Gr1mmage

The opal poster is the giveaway


martylindleyart

And the orange station signs, that used to be blue.


SorysRgee

Goddamn i cant quite make out the first word of the station so gonna guess with pendle hill? If so whats the store there? Im based in north western sydney but definitely willing to travel for a good computer store


idkFudgee

Ingleburn


Alternative_Chair630

u/idkFudgee we have a winner!


Clarkey7163

oh fuck, i (covid not pending) go by there every day but don't stop lmao On the way from Liverpool to Campbelltown


LordKiteMan

You have a liverpool in the upside down place too? :P


TheOliveStones

Do you reckon they have nice accents and go round returning stolen bikes?


camocase

Literally thought to myself "I've been there so many times. It can't possibly be..." turns out it is!


TheChineseRussian

Bro, where'dyou buy a graphics card in Ingleburn of all place? Also, hope you at least stopped by Suzie Dukes.


Alternative_Chair630

I was coming back from the far off depths of... Lidcombe. A land, where those who are willing to face the perilous train station, and brave the depths of despair ; find computer shops.


TheChineseRussian

terrifying. did you try the burgers at suzie dukes though


Alternative_Chair630

I did not 😅


Yeetirios

Lidcombe… Mwave?

razortor4

Good old Sydney weather


Algod2

This is what happens when Gladys resigns. U get a GPU but you also have to sit in the hail and rain at a sydney train station trying not to get rolled by eshays.


Huzzindy

Congrats for that, this GPU is a monster


Alternative_Chair630

I'm so happy with the performance of it thus far man, thank you!


HypertensiveSettler

After many months of looking, I got a 6600XT for my son. He was so so SUPER excited… he immediately dropped it. It was still in the box but kind of terrifying and funny at the same time. Enjoy the card!


Alternative_Chair630

Aw, that's as cute as it is terrifying.


Panntheon

Rip, the thunderstorm just started for me aswell


_bsod

I have that card! It’s brilliant, enjoy.


aventadorlp

No car but expensive gaming card...priorities


lukavwolf

If you run at the pillar fast enough, you might get accepted to Hogwarts.

I have to say I haven't seen a ramp like that on any station. Where is that located?? Looks kind of cool.

mariobrowniano

You have no idea how lucky you are to openly carry that and not be afraid you would get mugged.


putnamto

haha, irrelevant story here, but i said the literal exact same thing to the safety committee at work the other day. i was leaving to go home and walking through the break room, they flagged me down for being on the floor without safety glasses, and i asked them "do i need safety glasses to walk through the breezeway from the break room to the exit" they said yes i then asked "do we have any safety glasses in the breakroom?" they said no. so i just sat down and said "well i guess i live here now" they just stared at me for almost ten minutes before saying "this time we can make an acception"


SticksPrime

The fact that I haven’t been back to Sydney in 8-9yrs and know *exactly* what station that is in South-west Sydney, there’s no way in fuck that I’m taking **ANYTHING** out of a bag because sure as shit you’re getting rolled Eshays be lurking’ near dem parts bro


Umster

Sydney I live here aswell, if you need someone to babysit that lil' graphics card I'm down.


Alternative_Chair630

You guys are amazing, so glad so many people found this as funny as I did experiencing it. Please try and never forget, though ; the ***serious*** point of this post. [Don't forget to bring a towel!](https://imgur.com/CBuHW1B)

I went to a best buy drop and bought a 3090. It was pissing outside. I asked for a bag... they were like naaaaa can't do it boss. I almost died.

Dude, seeing "brand new 6700xt crashing" in your profile, *oof* good luck

Rain today was crazy in Erskineville. Hope u made it home safe

1. Its in a box it should be fine. 2. Put in in/under your: Shirt Backpack Bag Car Bike Blanket Jacket. Its really not that hard.

Looks really like Sutherland.

Neo... is that you?


theassholefaceman

That looks like a train station that I've been too, and that looks like this afternoon's storm.

Worth it


warmaapples

I’m getting desperate. Looking at a GPU box itself is now making me suffer


Redchimp3769157

can't you just do whatever since there is no power? You could dip that bitch in the ocean and take it out and it'll be fine as long as you dry it off properly


potedude

I got one of these. Team Red ftw.

Bruh I’m in Arncliffe, rain was heavy this evening! Lemme give you a lift when you get the other parts 🤞

Jewwenheimah

Wow sick graphics


No_Atmosphere_3516

Dear diary: It has been 2 days since the rain began…


fellowcomrad

He sold his entire house to buy a graphics card.


reubenbubu

walk home, the card is in an antistatic bag it will not get damaged, you will catch a cold which means more time to play


beachbum_VA

It should still be inside the bag inside the box.


TheWeirdoInTheHoodie

Duuuuude, walking in the rain With that GPU is a terrifying idea, maybe even “take off your jacket since man’s not cold anymore” and wrap the GPU Box with it. Better cold and wet for one day than to lose a couple hundred pounds in a few mins.


yourbrokenoven

There are little train stops just like this in Infamous. Never realized they based the design on reality. :)

There's your problem. You're trying to take the train in Sydney. It may go by a different name, but Shityrail is still Shityrail.

You might have sold your home and belongings for that GPU but you have some random, obese and no life gamers respect on Reddit. More than a fair trade I’d say
