No, no that's impossible... How can you?
Guys, you have to specify that the $59.95 is the price for North America(I guess), because if you try to buy it from Europe, even though you have used the ifixit.com/linus link it costs $68.44

I keep on asking myself are they tring to maim or kill the pc gaming industry i mean its definately holding it back from being all it could be and deturring pc builders from new pc's and new gamers pushed to console i mean why is a graphics card costing more than say an xboxone but more for less graphics performance no brainer which the perents n non tech bods will buy, this needs fixing playing fields leveled or the balls going in some ones net.....

>...selling directly to consumers at MSRP. Or, like NVidia, who sold their own GPUs at a markup from their own MSRP.

I bought a 1060 6GB with a modded fan cooler for $206, I got a deal
jerrylee22 (1 month ago)
$799 for a great 1080 Ti. Even $740=760 for ones with questionable aesthetics (usually the white ones). I've seen the same $800 1080 Ti I got sell for $850-1100, though, so you need to find the right seller. Even Amazon may have two or three different sellers with very different pricing. Like he said in the video, I did have a chance to pick up a Nvidia 1080 Ti Founder's Edition for $699, but I absolutely did not want that. If I actually had enough money left, I maybe could have snagged it to resell in this crazy market.

I've boycott buying any new cards until the prices come down to a more realistic price range. If everyone done this the stock would build and prices will fall. The same can be said for DDR memory.

Sad to say, but the miners are going after the older cards now too..... the best deal I found for under 100usd was a 650ti replacement for my damaged 560

STEN Gaming And Music (1 month ago)
i have a phenom ii x4 960T (yes o know I need to upgrade my cpu and I do plan too) I was using a GTX 570 which is about a 7percent bottleneck, but I just got a GTX 1060 3gb which is a 24 percent bottleneck. Now will the better card even out and still be a upgrade from the 570 at all or will I get better performance with the 570 all together? I am sorry I just got into pc and I honestly don't know if I should keep the 1060 out of my system for now till i get a better cpu or if it is still a upgrade from the 570 even though the bottleneck is way higher? Thank you in advance!

Used is how I started. I bought a prebuilt off of Facebook with an rx480 and an i56402 for 400. You just gotta find the right deal. Now I can start building onto this while not having to wait months to actually start playing.

This reminds me of the .com bubble of the early 2000s, everyone rushed in on the gold and fell flat on their faces.https://www.cnbc.com/2018/07/02/over-800-cryptocurrencies-are-now-dead-as-bitcoin-feels-pressure.html https://cryptonews.com/news/bitcoin-and-altcoins-trend-overwhelmingly-bearish-2127.htm. There will be lots of bubbles and loses before this craze stops. One site said bit coin expanded by $40 billion over the last day.https://www.ccn.com/crypto-market-jumps-40-billion-in-2-days-as-bitcoin-ether-and-xrp-record-major-gains/ The graph does not look too good for bitcoin though.
Mulberry2000 (1 month ago)
hd7970 £100 min and max on ebay uk. i have seen £167. I contacted that seller and told him is price was a joke. These cards were going for about £50 2 years ago . So it made sense to crossfire them than get high end cards. So the low end cards are very expensive and high end just no way i can get them. not even one

Wow you have so many gpus stored and i need one for the PC im trying to build for my FSX. it'd be nice if Linux Tech Tips would send me one of those spare ones as a gift...
Kris Hurlburt (1 month ago)
Dude, I spent $2,000 on a new build just to have a overclocked nvidia1070, I7, and 39GB Ram. It cost more than it should have, but It out performs most the pc's you build. Even the temp is ideal, around a cool 30C average.

The GPU shortage is a fucking scam. I go to Best Buy almost twice a month and they always have 1080s, TIs, and Vegas, and the price went up there as well even though they are the same cards from weeks before. It’s bullshit.

Apparently they thought of that on part picker a GTX 950 is more expensive then a Gegorce 1050 Ti. And unlike this guy with probBally over $100,000 worth of video cards I cant afford that.

Well, here in Sweden, I bought my GTX 1080 for 7500 SEK, about 2 years ago, and they now sell for about 1000 SEK less, so I don't really see a problem. Sure the price could be lower, but it's lower than I bought it for when GTX 1080 were new.
