If people are willing to buy at those prices, then it's not overpriced. You can always ride the crypto wave yourself to make some money back.

What the hell happened? I just built my PC about a little under a year ago and the 1070 in it now is going for almost triple what I paid.....Did Nvidia just stop making the cards?


Cryptocurency happened. The demand for gfx cards skyrocketed, which they can't meet, which means prices go up.

At least, that's how I understand it.

Yeah, just checked Newegg out of curiosity, ranges from $489-600+ that's absolutely ludicrous. I like my 1060, but no way in hell is it worth that kind of cash.

Weird. My 1070 was $544CDN when I got it January of last year, the place I got it from has increased the price, but it's $644CDN there vs $939CDN on NewEgg. Yes, it's the exact same card. 1060s are also averaging at $400CDN.

The 1060 6gb I have in my "old" build was $365CDN in Aug. 2016, it's now $390CDN through that retailer and same price on NewEgg Canada, but $540 on Newegg.com

Is this maybe just a NewEgg thing? Or US-only?

I'm helping a friend upgrade a pc I traded for and I was thinking about the 1060 6gb. They had some of the evga compact size on newegg for like 280, but it ran out of stock before we could buy it. If he's just gonna game at 1080p, is a 3gb goood enough for that?

US only for now I think. But I'm definately seeing ripple effects on newegg.ca and amazon.ca for GTX 1050 Ti. (ridiculous prices, you'll see).

For reference, I bought my Strix 1050 Ti for $219 CAD on amazon.ca just a few months ago, it's $286.94 now.

970 is 3.5, right? That's what I have absolutely no issues running every game on 1080 with high settings (occasionally have to turn Shadows down) and at least 60fps.

I don't know how big of a difference .5 gb would make.

What happened to the dedicated mining GPUs?
With deeper knowledge and experience, everything becomes more shallow.
