Yesterday, my brother's GPU died due to his HORRIBLE Power Supply Unit. (PSU) It is a dell product so it was bound to happen.

We wanted to safely throw it away, instead, it is being used as a coaster for my drinks. Thus, it sparked a question.

How would you use a dead GPU?

Honestly would probably smash it up. Electronics are really fun to destroy if you have never done it.

To quote one Ryan Davis speaking on almost this very manner. "Throw that shit away!"

Be a responsible human being and drop it off at a place that recycles electronics.

Throw it in a fire and breathe in the fumes.

Don't actually do that.

Wait till the garbage bag gets half full then hide it in there and cover it up. Then when garbage day rolls around you take it out and put it in the trash.

I'm in the southeastern part of America, so naturally it sounds like good target practice.

Clean it up, put it back in original box, leave it in lobby of local apartment building. Whoever finds it probably won't understand what it is but will think it's worth picking up because of the fancy box; they take it to their apartment figure out more about it and think they hit the jackpot but they can't use it themselves so they now have a mission to do something with this treasure that will end with hilarious disappointment and them leaving it exactly where they found it so the cycle can continue....

Put it on your wall. Unless it's ugly as fuck. Then just throw it away in an environmentally safe way.

Coaster is a pretty good use too.
