Looks like this card is almost back to MSRP.

However, keep in mind that the 1170/2070 (whichever name Nvidia decides on) will also be out soon and is supposed to be significantly faster. Moreover, the mining craze has all but come to a halt (thank god) and as I've stated in other threads these cards will continue to drop in price - which they have.

If you can hold out on buying one, I would absolutely recommend doing just that, because your patience will be met with cheap cards.

The current chain of events that support my theorizing,

1 - Since bicoin mining is no longer luctrative, miners will begin off-loading their cards at an attempted profit.(This is happening on eBay, craigslist, etc.)
- Do NOT buy any of these cards! Let them sit on them.

Retailers will try to also off-load their cards to break even (This is happening as we speak, Microcenter, Best Buy, and Newegg are all doing his right now.)
- Try not to buy them, they will continue to lower the prices to try an artificially manipulate demand.

The above will force scalpers to also try off-loading their cards
- Never buy from a scalper.
- Scalpers might also be tempted at buying cards at MSRP to create an artificial supply shortage. And, go right ahead you will lose money.

With the above scenario(s) currently playing out, there will be a point where the 10xx series and RX5xx series are overstocked. This will likely cause all seller types to drop their prices far below MSRP. Only at this point, will it be the time to buy.

(This is speculation, but I can see the trend happening pretty clearly.)

That's my point.

People that actually *need* a 1070 TI for gaming are few and far between and a very high majority are still gaming at 1080P. If you look at GPU sales for this generation the majority are grabbing the 1060 - which has the highest representation among enthusiast.
