Miners...I don't like you

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else here fed up (I know AMD and Nvidia aren't), that Miners have been essentially ruining any kind of good value for video cards (New AND Used) right now??

 

I don't know why it bugs me so much, but it does. I know it's hurting those looking to upgrade or get a new gaming system. I can't stand this mining craze and hope it ends soon.

 

Any other opinions on this?

Yea I was looking at newegg last night prices are ridicolous for AMD cards, glad I got my 7970s back when they were just under 300.00 now there 500.00 and more

I agree IVI, but one of the biggest Bitcoin dealers just went south, their website is down and somewhere near of over $300  million dollars worth of bitcoins disappeared, so it may not be around much longer.

Just tried to post the link and won't let me, wtf ?

I'm think about selling my 7950 for a profit and getting a 770 lol

 

Mining is getting harder so probably won't last too long

I was thinking of it too but I'm completely happy with my 7950 so I see no real need.

better sell Those cards now , I think the bitcoins market is gonna crash soon . it can only be a bubble so long and with the fail of the cytobank that lost 350 million or 600k worth of coins , I think people are gonna realize its a scam .

I wonder if the used (and even new) market will have a surplus of cards on it soon making them super cheap as a result of being oversaturated
