That's a nice card, Freddy. I'll carefully consider it. I like the thermal control features, especially the counter-rotating fans and the fan blade design. Very innovative, I think. Thanks for that. Smiley

Looks like I'll be exercising one of my "last resort" options today. One of the cards is getting up to 80+ degrees when I have a game open. And it's now not making a difference which monitor the game is on. the same card starts overheating each time I have a game open. The other card also gets hot, but only up to 60 degrees, and only when the open game is on one of its monitors. So it's time to take these cards out and downgrade to a pair of lesser cards (which I have) until January, when I can maybe get a usable card that can handle 4 displays.

Dave, I don't know that much about it but Win 10 does support multiple graphics cards for any make or model, you can basically put any GPU with another GPU with no need for an x-fire bridge. 

You might want to google it.

I haven't used the crossfire connection since I found out that doing so "turned off" the second card's displays, so that won't matter. the only concern at this point is that the cards that I have are REALLY puny, and may end up dipping into the single digit range FPS. If that's the case, then no games for me until I can get a new card.

I think it's completely shameful, and I feel utterly helpless to change it. What hurts is that I'll be in the market for new graphics hardware soon, and I don't want to be stuck with crap like what I'm currently running. Even cards that aren't suitable for mining are affected by this, since many gamers are snapping up the older, lower performance stuff.

Indeed Dave  Sad

I don't even see an end to this problem, people can be greedy  very-angry 

I know this, I have underclocked my GPU in an attempt to make it last longer.

That's probably a good idea. I'm quite confident that the "cryptocurrency bubble" will pop, and probably at some point this year, but it will take a long time for the market to stabilize. However, before it does (though who knows exactly when) the price of video cards will plummet to the point where a dirt cheap used 1080ti will be a found everywhere. I look forward to that day.

I never thought of that, yeah once this bubble is over GPU bargains might be easy to find.  fingers crossed

  I've been looking at video cards for a while, better ones have been sold, No 1070, a 1060 with 3G memory is selling at high prices.  AMD vega is out, I saw something at 3,000 maybe the vega card.  I heard they will have some cards out soon.  I can get a card that if I spend 500 within 90 days I get 150 back, that would be nice.

I was talking with a client of mine about this, and was told that in the past week the average price of cryptocurrency has dropped by more than 50%, so it appears that the bubble is already in the process of bursting CBS News seems to bear this out, at least a little. The client thinks that within the next month we're going to be seeing eBay prices for used middle- to top-end cards fall to scary low prices, and in huge quantities. Let's hope I have some duckets to spend when the crash is complete. Smiley

hopefully the past is wrong but crypto currencies usually bounces down and then bounces back even higher.
I still do not know why there using gaming cards instead of a workstation card that mine 10 fold, sure the cost upfront would be more for them but they would be mining more cyrpto currencies

I hope the bubble does burst - or why don't AMD and Nvidia just make more cards - they'd make a mint. Or maybe they think if people will pay double it saves them making more for the same money. scratch-head

The one I got for £330 is double that when it's in stock atm - insane.

  Gigabyte 1070  selling for 700 at B&H, lucky to even find one.  Newegg has the 1070's starting at 850 going to 1000 and the 1060's not far behind for price.
  Radeon Vega starts at 1000.  Prices seem unbelievable to me.  Lots of very low priced older cards but I wouldn't want to use any of them.  Guess a shortage help the seller to clear the shelves.
