If you're a gamer who hoped to build a new rig this Summer, you probably hate crypto currency mining. The GPU buying craze has driven up the price to insane levesl compared to just a few months ago. While you once might have found deals around $200 for the GTX 1060's or $350 for the GTX 1070's, you can now expect to pay $400+ GTX 1060's or $500+ for a GTX 1070. This has affected virtually all retailers and all models, but we found the last holdout deals at normal prices.

Dell must have received a shipment of PNY and VizionTek video cards, because they are charging what use to constitute normal prices. The old 3GB GTX 1060 is back down to $229 and the GTX 1070 $430 - both insanely cheap compared to the competition. Also uninflated are VisionTek Radeon RX 580's for $302 or the RX 570 for $236.

This week Lenovo launched their 4th of July sale. We've round up the hot deals an posted them here, but we warn you it's a disappointment save one insanely hot desktop deal. The Lenovo Y710 Cube with GTX 1060, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB hard drive + 128GB SSD is down to $899 - a huge $450 discount off the original $1,350 and about as cheap as you could build it yourself.

Ya, the price hikes are getting ridiculous. It’s probably a good thing though, for me at least. I’ve been eyeing that Sapphire Rx 580 Nitro +, but it’s going for $575 on Amazon right now (I have a large gift card balance on Amazon, so it’s the only option I’m considering currently), and there’s no way in hell I’m paying double just to get it right this moment. I say it’s a good thing because I really don’t need a new gpu.

I find it ridiculous that I could get 800 bucks for my 580.


#4

I have yet to see RX 580s go for $800 on resale markets. $450, sure that’s possible but the average is around $400.

οΏΌI was finding 650 - 900 on amazon.

Amazon is the den of thieves when it comes to PC componant resale. Try eBay, Craigslist or OfferUp for a better idea of what these cards are worth.

Its worth my 239 bucks I pay for it I say.
