Really... You all think that graphics cards are driven by bitcoins? Lol.....
I don't think that's what we're implying here, Michael, though the coin mining industry heavily affected pricing/supply of GPUs for a long time, actually.
good now I want have to pay 150-200% MSRP :p
I happen to think that once Nvidia releases its new architecture if the benefits are good enough a lot of people even if they just got a 700 series would be willing to upgrade if the performance Per watt is better
Well, I'm excited for a flood of second hand video cards for cheap.
Good, now I won't have to mortgage my house to build a system. I've been an avid AMD user for years, but the up charge from bitcoin miners has caused me to use nvidia hardware lately.
Those mothers were the cause for inflation in the first place. Pricks.
You don't want those cards.
Cant be right, everyone knows asic boards are faster cheaper and use less power.
The people that tried to get any real money from mining with GPU's just lost money or broke even.

Amd had to know this was coming, clearly was an unstable market
Prices for the R9 series cards went way up once they were found to mine coin so well. They were released at a good price to begin with.
Recently I got a good deal on two R9-280X OC GPUs and crossfired them for some excellent gaming performance. I like them a lot.
I agree. Prices can't fall fast enough for me.
This is late news
about time, and its not Bitcoin miners anyways, its Litecoin miners right now, Bitcoin is not profitable to use GPUs anymore
good news for us budget gamers.....
