inb4 wccftech is garbage (not that I care either way).

I've seen a few videos (titles only, I didn't bother to watch them) about Ethereum crashing and being no longer viable to mine with video cards... I figured it would reach this point sooner or later. Now everyone gets to move on to ASIC or some other mining crap and we can go back to normal until the next big cryptocoin comes into play.

Finally, I'm planning on buying a RX 580 or 1060 6gb. Damn, I didn't think I would be forced to use my R9 270 for 3 years until it's artifacting like crazy.

... 3 years shouldn't do that, no matter what you're doing in those 3 years. Well then again I dunno how bad AMD's cards are anymore.

I dunno, this is my first card to do this to me. My 9800GT lasted 6 years.

But the 1050 ti's are now down $20 from where I am.

Gonna get a cheapo 1050ti as a placeholder then get the next gen card.
