Everyone knows that virtual currency miners are ruining the GPU industry, profiting chump change that can't earn a living wage anyway (equivalent of bums panhandling on the street). Literally the stupidest hobbyists ever, I'm sure they'll ruin this deal quickly; but as of the moment I'm posting this, here we are:

https://www.evga.com/products/pro...P4-6163-KR

Although this is the noisy single-fan configuration, it's the superior SC (superclocked) model that also includes better, copper cooling pipes and more fins on the heatsink. Shipping is a little pricey, but there's no tax for most, so it's a wash. The street price on this is about double what you see here.

If it goes out of stock, use the Auto Notify function (like I did), and jump on the deal as fast as you can next time.

Thanks for the heads up! Wasn't looking for a 1060, not at close to $300 anyway, but I was able to order a 1080. When spend $300 when I can spend $589 laugh out loud With the crazy prices on the 1070, I should come out just about even so a free upgrade to a 1080 for me.

There were actually two 1080 Ti hybrid in stock. By the time I checked out, they were all gone.

This is what I am running. Excellent card. There were times when the 6GB 1060s were hovering around $200. In the current environment these prices are insane.

you forgot to mention that mining also increases load on the grid and world-wide power usage has gone up due to it, consuming more resources in the process.

Volta is supposedly coming out in Spring. Probably will have a better chance getting one of those OR seeing massive price drops on the current 10 series as miners upgrade.

This price is stupid, I'm out.
It's literally half the price compared to anywhere in the world it's currently available. But ok, "you're out."

$21 shipping sours the deal a bit, but a deal nonetheless.

Miner still will buy older GPU. As long there 4gb of memory or larger. Even gtx 550ti is up in price.
