    On the other hand, the news is from Digitimes, who manage to have a reputation worse than WCCFtech.

    I have no idea about that I just know what I see. When 980Ti drop down below £250 and you can get a 1080Ti for £540 something very big is happening. I asked some one who mined if it had gone crap and he said "Most cards are no longer profitable".

    That's more due to the recent market-wide crash on the crypto scene, it's looking more and more like another bull run is gearing up though, so if you see a cheap (or close to MSRP) GPU now, I would jump on it while you can!

    Fortunately I have not needed a GPU. I thought I did, then I broke down a rig with a Fury X in and it's singing now. For everything else my XP just shreds. I've got two very strong rigs now at the resolutions they run which has thankfully been enough :)

    Dammit. Was planning to sell one of my GPUs. Should've done it sooner

    This is refreshing as I'm eyeing up a new graphics card, with the new cards on the horizon it's difficult to know whens a good time to buy. I think we're expecting the new cards in Q3?

    PUBG on my 7850 is a sad state of affairs, getting a bit desperate.
