GPU's getting cheaper?

Having problems installing that new stick of memory? Found some great software or having issues with something? Or maybe want to chat about your PlayStation, X-Box, Nintendo, Sega, even your old Spectrum 48k....! Or maybe something you want to sell or acquire (computing related of course!). Let us know here...

GPU's getting cheaper?

Hi all,

It seems that with the Chinese Govt banning "mining" of crypto-currencies and NVidia releasing newer versions of their GTX30x0 GPU's that cannot mine crypto-currencies, that maybe demand (from people who want to "mine") for these products is falling off and prices are getting cheaper, according to this report.

With luck, some decent GPU's might be available at more cost effective price levels, which could help BOINC crunchers...though I hope that the "crippled" versions can still be used for BOINC...

regards
Tim
