Good day and speed up your computation !
I'm from Europe, Romania and I have a video card slot free on my desktop. Doing computation since 2010.
If you have a spare video card nvidia please send it to me, for computation. On main slot I have nvidia quadro 2000 and I run Boinc under Ubuntu 18.04. I know that in west, quadro 2000 can be find at recycle.
Thank you.

The quadro P2000 still gets sold here for around $500. $350 second hand.
I doubt they're 'at a recycle'.
You're better off getting an RTX 2060 Super for most projects...

Not with "P". Just quadro 2000, manufactured in 2010.

Why would you want to run such a card?
They're selling $25 on the second hand market (ebay), which is about the same price as a postage fee to your country from a donor.
You might as well buy them second hand.
If you are running these 24/7, the following options might be better suited for you:

1- Get a much faster 1030 for $80, with GDDR5,
The initial purchase price will be negated by your electric cost, running this card 1,5 years on Boinc:
FP32 (float) performance : 1,127 GFLOPS (over 2x faster)
FP64 (double) performance : 35.23 GFLOPS (just a little slower, but very few Boinc projects use DP)
Power: 30 Watts (half the power consumption of a 2000)
Overclocking: 1435Mhz (+500Mhz) 2.4x faster
RAM overclock: 6Ghz (+600Mhz) 2.5x faster


2- Or get a much cheaper DDR3 version at half the speed (though can be overclocked. ) $20 + ship.
Runs at roughly half the speed, but $30 on electricity savings per year (ran 24/7), meaning you could buy 2 of these, and break even in 1 year of use:
FP32 (float) performance :268.8 GFLOPS 1/2 speed
FP64 (double) performance : 22.40 GFLOPS 1/2 speed
Power consumption: 23W <1/2 wattage
Overclocking: 1800Mhz (+200Mhz) 2.5x faster
RAM overclock: 1800Mhz (+400Mhz) 0.8x speed (slower)

3- Or get the current market sweet spot RTX 2060 Super.
20x as expensive as a Quadro 2000, but is 6x(DP) - 14x (SFPP) faster, at only twice the power consumption (when capped at 125W).
FP32 (float) performance : 7.377 TFLOPS
FP64 (double) performance 230.5 GFLOPS
Power Consumption: 170W
Optimal power consumption: 125W
Overclocking: ~1800Mhz (+50 to 250Mhz depending on model. most older models run stable at 1935Mhz, newer do 2010-2050Mhz)
RAM oveclocking: 16Gbps (+1400Mhz)


Quadro 2000 $25:
FP32 (float) performance : 480.0 GFLOPS
FP64 (double) performance : 40.00 GFLOPS
Power consumption: 60W
Overclocking: 650Mhz (+150Mhz)
RAM overclock: 2600Mhz (+??Mhz)

If you're looking for most bang for the buck, fastest speed, lowest initial cost, and lowest electric usage in one package, the 2060 Super is the way to go.
The initial cost investment might be high, but gets bought back in electricity over the course of 1/2 to 1,5 years. ($125/yr electric cost of the RTX 2060 Super, vs $360 to $840 for 6 to 14 x Quadro 2000).

Actually,
Get a P106 (GTX 1060 that's no longer used for mining). They're going for $40 a piece, is cheaper than a GT 1030, and slightly faster than a GTX 1050.
Work great on older hardware (PCIE 2.0)
It seems that most projects (Milkyway, einstein @ home) are aimed at 1050/1060 GPUs anyway.
So you'll get best performance and price on those cards for boinc.
RTX 2060 Supers are better for Folding@home.
