If you haven't followed the price of graphics cards lately, or are oblivious to the price of GPUs and are thinking about buying one, then we've got an important PSA for you: Now is a really bad time to buy a GPU. Click the above link to see a chart of MSRP prices vs current prices at online and store sites. Prices have doubled and then some in all cases.

Graphics card prices have skyrocketed because GPUs are so effective at mining cryptocurrency, which has gained a lot of traction in recent months. To get a gauge for the price discrepancy, let's look at the GTX 1080 Ti; the lowest you can find Nvidia's flagship gaming card online right now is $1,350, which is roughly twice the card's MSRP.

Here is a page of Newegg with GTX 1070 and 1070 Ti cards.

And here is the Newegg page for GTX 1080 and 1080 Ti cards


Same thing applies to AMD graphic cards. I don't know what to tell you ... but to WAIT.
