As I've previously discussed in another thread... I was going to upgrade my PC 6 months ago, but I thought I'd wait until the price of a 1080Ti has come down a bit. I was wrong. Prices are now between £900 and £1000 here in the UK which has taken it beyond what I'm prepared to pay for a single component. I built a full PC 5 years ago for £900 (which was no slouch) and, if I'm not mistaken, inflation hasn't risen that massively since. GPUs seem to be up about 50%. So is there a solution to this? Or are we now stuck with massively inflated prices? If manufacturers increase supply, surely the miners will just buy them all up to make more cryptocurrecy, pushing prices even higher. Bill Gates has said cryptocurrency isn't going anywhere so I guess all we can hope for is a massive crash in it's value, but it's not going to disappear. It just seems ludicrous to me that a 'graphics card' is not being used for graphics, but is pushing the prices out of the reach of people who want to use them for graphics!
