There's a reason its called "holiday sales" not "holiday price-hike". You have multiple holidays within a short window so you try to attract buyers even more as you know this is the "spending season" for consumers. Best way to do that is sales and lowering your prices. Sure, you'll have "hot-gifts" that run out but this mining crap is just an excessively and prolonged joke. Even after the seasonal sales, prices should have settled back up to msrp. It just doesn't make sense since, traditionally, computer hardware depreciates, quickly.

The MSRP is not gospel and demand can change the "retail" price but it puts things in perspective for the end consumer. This is a starting price-point manufacturers set to give all those involved in getting the product to consumer a share of the pie. This time, newegg and the US retailers decided they wanted a bigger pie. And miners obliged and now both want more. Lame thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Look at it on the bright side. The AISC devices for scrypt/sha are now coming out putting GPU mining for scrypt/sha out to pasture. People are starting to dump there video cards on the bay to buy the AISC for mining. I have 4 of the ASIC devices they started out at 300.00 a piece they are now down to 199.00 a piece they get 360KHS per device at 10watts of power. I have mine modded to run at 400 KHS at 12W. Also the difficulty is going up to the point that GPU mining is useless partially because of the ASIC. Also a reason for the GPU dump. To put it in prospective 2x AISC = 400KHS x2 = 800 KHS basically what you would get out of a R9 290X with out killing it.Low power usage low heat output. The only thing I really need a video card for now is to play my games.

Hopefully this will catch on.

I bought my 7950 for $179.99 after mail in rebate just before the price hike. I was contemplating going cross/trifire then the prices took off to the moon. I refuse to pay that much above msrp.

Yeah, I know about the AISC and its a step in the right direction.
post #35587 of 38704
Okay here goes the big question of the day. Can I install the AMD Catalyst driver on multiple not matching cards in the same system. I was going to leave the 7990 in my system and mine off of it along with my new R9 290x and use the R9 290x for gaming. Till my other R9 290x gets here. Of course not cross firing them. Thanks
