I just went in to browse as I'm thinking of a new build, and I was pretty shocked to see the entire graphics card aisle was wiped out clean. The only video cards that were available were so old you couldn't give them away, and I was really surprised. This craze is real. In all my years of going to Microcenter I've never seen anything like that.

“B-b-but this doesn’t affect PC gaming guys I swear!”

It’s a damn shame what this mining nonsense has done to the market :/

Yeah, it's pretty insane, even if it isn't a problem here.

Here's some despair

They have to be empty boxes, right?

Same. Was in there Friday night picking up my new monitor and dropped by the PC build section. Tumbleweeds blowing down the aisle and not a GPU in sight.

Nobody said it doesn't affect PC gaming. People are just pointing out that this temporary craze does not permanently affect PC gaming. So great job with that strawman.

This makes no sense. The value of minable cryptos have gone down since the end of last year. Why now and not weeks ago?

Didn't a whole bunch of new crypto currencies pop up recently? Before there was only a few minable ones and they didn't really effect GPU's 1080 and up. Now though its a gold rush, everything above a 1050 is gone or stupidly expensive.

I'd laugh so hard if the market crashed and they were stuck with all those graphics cards without making their money back. The cherry on the top would be that the couple that "mines together" and thus "stays together" separates over the incident. With a post like that, it's begging for that outcome.
