Maybe it isn't miners. Maybe it's some mad billionaire console fanatic buying up all the graphics cards. Just for a laugh or something.

RX 480 --> 1070 is a kinda meh upgrade anyway.


This, the 480 is in the same league performance wise as the 6GB 1060, and going from that to a 1070 is a modest upgrade at best, hardly worth the trouble/expense IMO.

Just grab an Xbox one X if you want to game right now. Seriously its a decent system and you will pay at least 1500 dollars to build a PC as strong with the way prices are right now. I love my gaming PC and just glad I built mine before the lazy bum miners raised the prices of GPUs. Also RAM right now is absurd. PC gaming is just not worth it right now if you are trying to get in from square one.

Lol ya, might as well at this point. I would have said the One X is pointless but with these prices for PC gaming, not anymore.

I would like to think GPU prices will stabilize soon, but I have this funny feeling we’re gonna be looking at these ridiculous prices for a lot longer...


That's how I feel. As long as someone keeps inventing a new currency, this will continue.
With deeper knowledge and experience, everything becomes more shallow.

Unless the government taxes the hell out of cryptocurrency.
