At long last, GPU prices have come to reasonably priced levels. After a long run up in prices due to overwhelming demand, both AMD and Nvidia GPUs are returning to levels that make building a mining rig reasonable. For those betting on price increases building a mining rig might now again be an option.
Mining Rig GPU Prices
Over the past year GPUs like Nvidia’s 1070 and 1080 and AMD’s RX and Vega lines have been all but ludicrous, with prices reaching well above MSRP prices. During the height of the GPU drought prices for the most desirable cards topped $500, $600 and even $1,000 for a single video card. Well, the GPU drought is over. With the decline in cryptocurrency prices, and with it hype, GPU levels have come down considerably.
