    Hi Guys,

    Is it just me or did the graphic card prices increase quite a bit in the last day or 2?

    Nvidia and AMD prices are both being inflated by crypto currency miners buying up the stock.

    Yeah miners are ruining it all - 1080Ti's were on ebay for under $900, snapped up by miners.
    I found some stock yesterday of Ti's for $950, there were still some left when I checked last night.

    Give it a few months until the whole thing falls in a heap and becomes worthless, then buy up the cheap cards that the miners will have to flog off.

    The Nvidia cards are actually undeclocked to mine with, they won't be a bad buy at all.

    There'll be many people watching hoping to snap up discounted, nearly new GPU's.

    I imagine being so new most people won't want to lose much on their purchases though.

    I'll be honest, I have 11 1080TIs + about 20 other Radeon cards.

    I'm selling the Radeon Systems while they are worth about double what I paid for them, then I'm paying a thousand or so dollars to trade up to a 1080TI system, that can mine more algo's than the Radeons have and are more efficient.

    They also offer a tax deduction for me.

    When I sell them, even if its in 2 or 3 months, it will probably be around 50 to 60 percent of RRP.

    So, you'd be looking at a card with 20 months of warranty for peanuts.

    haha I already have three!

    The 1070 is actually probably the best Nvidia card for mining, but no point paying over 500 - 550 for one, once they are 600 - 700 the 1080ti makes sense.
