Absolutely terrible price for that card. Shame the market for GPUs has been disrupted so much, but even then unless you absolutely need a new card I'd recommend waiting for this mining craze to die down

Yes have to agree, been watching prices steadily rise for weeks with on average £100 loading per card!

Probably cheapest if you can wait a week Zotac Mini . As much as I wish it were the case can't see the prices dropping on these cards anytime soon even with the dwindling benefit of mining.

Yep terrible time to buy a graphics card and probably will be for the rest of the year at least Been articles all over the net predicting the end of mining and lots of cheap second hand GPUs on the market but the real world experience is completely opposite, think they must be short of news so just trying ton predict upcoming events but I don't think people with good mining set ups are going to toss out their cards over night, they will keep them running as long as possible.

Anyway my advice, don't buy over priced cards like this, the longer people buy them at these prices and support this overpricing the longer it will continue. Want to play games and your current card not up to it? Buy a Playstation for about half the price, better than being ripped off....

Prices should be going down but I feel Nvidia/AMD have been caught off guard - availability of some cards wasn't great even before the mining happened. As long as Supply is shot - any miners who intend to sell are going to keep prices high.

If you really want to buy a card now you're best off going really low end (1050/1050ti) or going overkill with a 1080/1080ti as those weren't hit so bad. I'm saying this as someone who's in dire need of a rig upgrade as well X)

Or grab a second hand nvidia 900 series GPU. Zero demand by miners for them.

They're still rather expensive from what I've seen.
I'm glad I didn't wait to get my 1060
I have to agree, not the time to buy a video card, need to wait until the mining craze move to the next thing.

Trawling stocks and shares they use ethereum in graphics cards and due to short supply prices jumped another 11% last week.

Apparently AMD are flying graphics cards in by Boeing 747's to keep up with demand? I've seen it all now!!

Prices won't drop any time soon.
Take Vega coming out soon.

These are estimated pricing for UK. Remember the Dollar price excludes VAT. Even so I would expect a 30% discount for pound vs Dollar. You will get none. £703 for a $499 card? AMD may suggest a price but the distributers are raising their margins big time here. See what prices we get in a few days.

The mining craze is set to go on for a while with many miners ramping up their operations. They can order 30 high end graphics cards in one batch. Thats just one individual. Ethereum prices is circa $300 now. It did dip to $150 but at these prices miners will be making good money.

NVIDa won't ramp production just before the release of Volta. AMD either with Vega out soon. It takes 2-3+ months for Nvida to request more volume from it's manufacturer. Probably same for AMD. They seem to be loving this boom in graphics card demand. The other reason they won't ramp is they fear miners will wholesale dump their cards should Ethereum prices crash.

That £240 card yesterday on here although voted cold sold out all 10 units within a few hours.

If mining prices crash then maybe this card could sell for £220-£240. Will Vega impact on it's pricing? Probably not if Vega is priced higher due to demand. Could be a long waiting game. £60 premium to pay here.
