Just checking to see what someone here would be willing to cough up for the card. It's less than a month old, Nvidia Founders Edition, just been playing League of Legends with it mostly (also played some GTA5 and Guilty Gear Xrd with a few others, maybe four rounds of PUBG), it's what I would consider as good as new. Went from Best Buy into my rig, just after Christmas.

Post or PM. Curious! As is, I'm just happy to have a great card at a nice price, so if I get answers like $550 or gtfo, so be it. It's a pretty sick card either way, would be happy to keep it for what I paid for it. Would also be interested in possibly getting a lightly-used card of lesser quality (1060 or better) and Paypal.

I would just eBay it if I were you. You probably won't be able to buy a step down card without an insane markup. I can even sell my GTX 950 SC+ on eBay for what I paid for it brand new. It's nuts. I was kicking myself for not finding out about the clearanced Gaming Towers at Walmart until too late. That would have essentially been a free or even better than free GTX 1060 3GB after selling the computer.

Yeah, figured eBay would be the better bet. The smartest thing right now would be to just either keep the card (I'm resigned to doing just that) or pocketing the $800 now and waiting for video cards to simmer the fudge down until the 1070's either available or affordable and just stick with that instead. I'm not a patient man, so I'm pretty much ready to just say "I got an $800 card for $60 out of pocket and that's pretty dope".

I saw a few prebuilts at Walmart that I coulda thrown $300 at for a moderate upgrade from my FX 8350 (by switching to Intel) but they were 7th gen and I'm looking to stick with 8th Gen. Actually going to pick up my i5 8400 tomorrow from Frys, got my motherboard picked out (Gigabyte - Z370 HD3) for next month and hopefully by March I'll have the stupid money together for my 16 gigs of DDR4 I'll need to finally kiss this AMD build goodbye. Roommate's offered to take the CPU, Mobo and ram off my hands once I'm done for $180 come to think of it so that'll help out with the RAM, essentially I have to sell my DDR3, CPU and Mobo just to get some fudging RAM for the new build. Disgusting prices. raspberry

BUT at that rate pretty much all I need is to move up a tier or two on the GPU to be 4K 60FPS ready. That'll be a good feeling. I'm actually super interested to see how performance fares moving to Intel from the AMD FX line.

It seems like every graphics card on the market struggles to achieve 4K 60FPS, so hopefully Is the 11xx series (or is it 20xx?) will make further improvements and drive down the price of the 10 series a bit. It's weird that pre-builts are starting to become a better value proposition than buying components separately.

I think the cat's out of the bag on that one now. Soon as these guys making prebuilds understand they can successfully climb higher to retail values for components that $1200 "bargain" with the GTX 1070 will be back up to $1.4-1.5K. Every prebuild outlet's probably getting hit by every miner with money, and you're gonna see a whole lotta "barebones" kits hitting eBay and Craigslist. "Sick gaming PC, just needs a videocard! $550!"

This really is an unfortunate crapshow. I hate Etherium.

Same here. I was hoping they would just release a mining-optimized card and be done with it. Who knew that I should have jumped at the opportunity to pay retail for a card on Best Buy's shelves last year.

The cards have certainly dropped over the past few days. A week ago, an RX580 on EBay would pull $700. Right now, I've got three up for $505-$545 shipped and they aren't selling.

And a 1070 would do $750 no problem. I've got one there for $655 with no takers.

(I did sell one RX580 for $555, but that was three days ago just when the drop was starting.)

So, now is actually a decent time to buy. As BTC and other cryptos continue to climb back up, the cards will to. Until the 11xx line hits -- then I'm thinking you might be able to get deals on the 10xx or RX5x0 cards.

It makes me ill to see the 1070 going for that much. Especially used, when you don't know what the hell it's been doing.

Oh, sorry, just to clarify -- I was referring to NEW prices. Maybe some used went that high in the past too though -- but all of mine listed are new/sealed.

Yeah graphics cards are at insane prices right now, so I'm sitting with a gaming PC that can't play any games because I don't have a card. Im hoping I can pick up a Gtx 1060 once the prices go down to a sane level.

This 1060 at NewEgg keeps popping up with more stock every few hours. $289.99.

(It's a 3GB, not a 6GB, but still decent and at MSRP, I believe.)

They're supposed to be $250 so they're clearing a tidy 20% markup.

That said, the 1060 at that price is probably about as good as it's gonna get for the foreseeable future.

I picked up the Zotac 3gb 1060s in late December for $179. No way I would pay $280 for a 3gb...

Yeah, that's nuts. I'd gladly drop down to that card at your price to sell off this 1080 for close to $800 lol, I'm USED to slumming it. This was a fair extravagance for me.

3GB is a $200 MSRP card if I'm not mistaken. 6GB is $250 because the two aren't the same card.

Agreed -- but if someone wants a card to game with right now, that's probably as close to MSRP as you're going to get. That's all I'm saying.

I did a quick search on the model number of the 3GB and CNet says the MSRP was $250 -- just like DD said above.

EDIT: Actually, I think CNet may have been incorrect and thinking of the 6GB too. More searching seems to indicate that the 1060 3GB cards were indeed $199 MSRP and the 6GB were $249.

I paid ~$120 shipped each for the two of mine used. I need to keep watching Facebook Marketplace for more... smile

i wish bitcoin and co. would fall on its face already. or someone would just produce enough cards so we could get things back to normal around here

The next gen cards are coming. Part of the issue right now, from what I understand, is that production is down for the current cards because they are ramping up for the new ones. So, that should help soon, I think. When they new cards come out, you'll have two groups:

1. People that bought lots of current cards are over-inflated prices so they won't be able to buy the new ones.

2. Miners that scoop up a bunch of the new ones (because they are crazy) -- and will have older ones to sell off.

So, I THINK it will be good for gamers. Basically, those that want the brand new ones will hopefully be able to get one. But, maybe more importantly, there may be a bunch of slightly used ones on the market for those that want to buy the current gen (1070/1080/570/580) cards used. yes

And, heck, even right now, they've come down quite a bit -- mining income is way down right now and prices of cards on EBay has dropped along with it. You can actually pick up today's cards like the 570 or 580) at reasonable (i.e. near MSRP) now and then.

I still maintain that it is about to get better, not worse, for gamers trying to get cards.

And, heck, as I said, it's already gotten better over the past week or two. EBay prices have dropped $100+ on many of the current cards.

Sure, a marginal improvement, but supply issues still persist so naturally any upward movement in crypto will cause the "newly discounted" cards to be picked up. I can still sell brand new 1080tis directly to miners at 1050/card. I did take advantage of the card inflation to sell my 6gb 1060s to upgrade to 1080tis. However, I must confess, I did buy some 3gb 1060s when I saw a bulk deal.

I don't know if many of those "kiddos" are doing over $20,000 per year... Coinbase doesn't appear to report unless you pass that (or like 200 transactions).

So, 1-2 Bitcoin then

200 transactions doesn't sound outlandish either frankly.

It isn't clear if they are counting GDAX transactions. I get the impression that they aren't.

So, if you're doing 200+ transaction on Coinbase itself -- you're probably doing something wrong. smile

Then again, maybe they are counting GDAX. In which case, if you're that big of a day trader -- then, yes, they should indeed worry about reporting to the IRS.

Of course, if they are that worried -- they could try to move it to some non-US exchange that doesn't report.

In any case, I don't think that is the reason for anything significant lately.

Ok, well, point is still the same. If you're doing over 200 transactions, then you're a pretty active trader.

Bumped, possibly interested in trading down and selling out for a lightly used lesser card as the 1080's a bit overkill for what I'm doing on my rig currently. Would be looking to stay in the 1060 range probably.
