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

Here's some despair

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.

Nvidia should not give them a refund.

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?

Any a****** can make up a new crypto so there is no end to them. The end will be when the market dips far down enough to cause a panic and exchanges close up as people try to get their money. It'll be just like a bank run from the 1800s. It'll be entertaining to watch.

Nobody said it doesn't affect PC gaming.

Plenty of people on this board have said this, don’t play dumb.

So great job with that strawman.

If you're going to go with this 'strawman' fad at least use it right.
I will rule the world, and find that truly good cup of coffee.

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.

yep. PC gaming is dead. thanks for capitalism scums.

Oh look, someone else who doesn't know how to quote a whole post. Afraid the part about distinguishing between short-term and long-term effects will ruin your stupid little game?

The ROI on 38 1080ti's on top of 4 full builds (mobo, CPU, RAM, and at least 2 PSUs) plus any misc costs is going to be measured in years.
