"One AMD card's street price has tripled to $1,500 but pre-built system vendors unable to match price
GameSpot reports that as awareness spreads of how high-end gaming GPUs can be used to mine digital currencies such as Bitcoin, sales are driving prices double, sometimes triple the retail price.
In a comparison chart, the site shows that cards such as the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti - Nvidia's flagship among its range of gaming GPUs - is currently being sold online for $1,350 - more than twice the MSRP of $700.
AMD has also been affected, with the Radeon RX Vega 64 tripling in value from $500 to $1,500. The site also reports many of these cards are sold out at most retailers."
Another good article comparing MSRP to the street price of various pieces of hardware.
Note: this is from a week or 2 ago and prices have dropped slightly since..Last edited by Kerotan - on 13 February 2018
