You fail to realize there's an obvious solution for your problems:

1. buy overpriced GPU
2. use it to play games
3. use it to mine when NOT playing games
4. ???

I wish I made $400k a year to spam Twitter with nonsense and go golfing in Florida every other weekend....

#1. Not all people can profit off of mining, and when (some of) the currencies are unstable you run the risk of losing any income generated from them turning what was once a net profit into pure loss. On top of that, trying to minimize your risk by converting mining currency to RL$ can further destabilize the mining currency.

#2. You should not feel obligated to have your GPU mining 8/7/365 in order to mitigate its higher than desired purchase price. The advice is no different than telling someone that instead of complaining about having to pay $60,000 for a car that cost $20,000 three years ago they should just be an Uber driver.

Single GPU mining is hardly profitable. Specially if you are not running it 24/7.

I'm sure that bitcoin will continue to be worth it when everyone in China, where electricity is practically free, is mining 24/7.
