Bitcoin mining leads to an unexpected GPU gold rush
#1
Wink 
Bitcoin and other crypto currency miners have created a dearth of mid-range and high-end GPU cards that are selling for twice as much as suggested retail. The reason: miners are setting up server farms with the cards.

I'm surprised gpu's can still be used for mining profitably. Also, that the card makers haven't scaled up their production. It sucks for gamers and anyone building a general purpose pc and that market is already in like the fifth year of decline.

gpus are not financial anymore.  if non asic-resistant, you need asic farm.  gpus just dont pull enough blocks.  for asic-resistant, ok, gpu useful, but always best to mine on other peoples computers lol
