I don't think they use the same chips in cars and gpus, but whatever you think is aight.
2021-10-15 22:02
wrong miners massively buy out graphic cards and that's the main reason. What you said may be one of the small reasons but its nowhere close to the main reason - cryptos Ethereum just today went up more than 200 dollars
2021-10-14 16:48
Concentrating the manufacture of chips in just one place, which is Taiwan, won't go wrong, trust me, it's SCARCITY!

I bet you here is even worst hahahha. I mean, i get you... but between all the possibilities if you're on a budget that's the cheapest card that will handle csgo half-decently. I'm on a r9 270x (which performs KINDA like a 1050, but consuming a lot more) and it runs csgo 1600x900 with lows of 180ish fps, super playable with 144hz. Haven't noticed any difference from my previous setup with a gtx 1060 6gb in terms of performance, even though people say you need at least double the fps of the display refresh, i guess if it's a bit above and always stable it should do fine. If you have a good PSU and can grab one of those (that you know comes from a serious vendor, cause those are very old cards), that should do the trick.

Yeah I picked up a 1060 just before prices got fucked. If I didn’t I would maybe still be stuck on a 770 because I think I would be too stubbornly overpay for an upgrade

bro basically anything runs cs these days i went to my cousin's house and he was getting 60-100 fps with a 9500gt ddr2(yes),if you just want to play lighter games like cs and gta 5 you can get even a 750ti or 950/960(which is my gpu btw)it obv won't have great fps and graphics quality but it's better than nothing these days i have prints btw xd

I dont think so. Everyone got used to these prices and major retailers will not go down. The market will have to be flooded with cards so the price is droped back to msrp
2021-10-14 08:30
yes-just wait another 2 years also alot of ppl will start selling their cpu,motherboards,ram too because "their system doesnt meet the requirements for windows 11" youtu.be/IYOa7tWlRSs?t=5

No chance, demand imploded this year and these guys were already incapable of supplying (with no intention to either). I don't think u learn yet how oligarchy works.
2021-10-14 18:20
Of course, they'll go down once there's more supply, but they won't go down to where they used to be. Nvidia has always tried to push the prices up and when they come down I expect each tier to stabilize at a tier above where it used to be. For example XX60 series would cost ~$400-$450, where XX70s used to be, instead of ~$250 where it once was. Also #69 nice

2021-10-15 21:26
There is a local importer here who is taking pre orders for the 16xx series at msrp prices before the prices hiked up last year and I am considering to go down that way. I my problem is that the wait time is 6 months for it to arrive, no one has any idea what the market will be like in that time so I have double doubts.
2021-10-15 21:33
If I was to build a new machine now I would go with a AMD APU ie. a CPU with build in graphics, it seems like the best way of getting okay graphics at the moment without paying a huge premium for a so-so GPU. This of course means the motherboard must port for the monitor. Only I would still build the machine so that it is ready for me to put in a monster GPU as hopefully some time in 2022 things will improve, so still a quality PSU of 750 watt or so and also a case that can handle a big GPU card.
2021-10-15 21:59
The old graphics card are out of production, while the new ones have price fixed to their coin mining capabilities. As long as bitcoin doesn't crash, the prices will stay up. :/ The exceptions are AMD cards, that have high prices just because all the middle men are bumping the prices up. The other hope than bitcoin crashing is intel gpus next year. Supposedly they' re gonna enter the market on loss, competing via aggressive pricing. Who knows how good the drivers are gonna be, but top tier card is supposed to be on level of rtx 3070.
