Was wondering how many of you chose to spend a little more on top of the line thanks to miners driving midrange gpu prices through the roof?!

    I just use a Step-Up of a GTX 1070 FE to the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC Black Edition GAMING, 11G-P4-6393-KR, 11GB GDDR5X, iCX Cooler & LED and ordered two Kits EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC HYBRID Waterblock Cooler, Cooling, 400-HY-5598-B1 for the Step-Up
    The Second will have to wait till the end of the Summer for the second 11G-P4-6393-KR.It
    It will not really mine for Coin but more for a Cure and Badges plus will be replacing my two GTX 980 Hybrids in my The AIO Hybrid Rig.
     
    PS this is what shows in your Signature now.

    from what ive heard the bottom is going to drop out on the miners soon.  maybe we can see decently priced cards in our future.

    Well not only mid-range range prices sky rocket. 1080Ti prices went trough the roof too. First nominal price of 820 Euros then it went nicely down to about ~740 and then boom 770, 790, 800, 815, 840, 850. If you're really out of luck there are outlets which charge 900 Euros for 1080Ti FE same as FTW3!
     
    Don't hold your breathe for prices to come crashing down any time soon. If anything I can see upward trend going on especially for top-tier cards as with decreasing profitability its the top tier performers who remain profitable for longer period of time and 1080Ti is on top of the pack. At this moment in time best card just for gaming is 1080 (not Ti). Because 1080 is not very good at mining, performs at best as much cheaper 1070 - all because of GDDR5X latency. 1080Ti because is equipped with much more processing units is not affected by this. As such 1080 prices for the most part remain stable and supply is OK.

    Four weeks ago I bought a 1080 Ti FE for a good price and allready sold my 980 Ti SC+. I paid more but I was getting more too, maybe because of the miners.

    you could always do what I do with old cards and make cheapie computers out of them.  My 780 dc is going to go in a streaming comp

    I don't think so. The prices will stay on top, because people buy.

    Mining profitability has dropped a ton the last 3 weeks or so - to the point that the network hashrate on Ethereum has gone flat, indicating very few if any new rigs are being built for mining that coin (which matters as Ethereum alone has about as many GPUs mining it as all other cryptocoins COMBINED do).
     
     I have already seen prices starting to drop on RX 470/480/570/580 and GTX 1070 cards, I suspect a month from now if there is no "new surge" in pricing on cryptocoins that the availability and cost of most GPUs will have returned closely to pre-surge pricing 4 months ago (except the RX 4xx series stuff where AMD stopped making the GPUs in favor of the RX 5xx series).
     
     I never did see a noticeable effect on GTX 1080ti pricing, and 1080 only showed a TINY move at the low end.
     

    I am the friendly competition - but at least I DO use some EVGA products to compete with y'all

     
    3 x GTX 1070 SC, 2 x GTX 960 SC, 3 x GTX 950 SC, 2 x 1300 G2, might be more I missed.

    This has been an on and off thing for a few years now, a new coin flares up and all stock is GONE for months, then it dies back down, prices drop and things go back to normal, every couple years it gets really mainstream again, it is on the downswing form what I ahve seen, if you can hold off, it will be back to normal in the next month or 2 I think.

    Actually, there has only been one previous instance - the Litecoin/DASH craze of the last 2013/early 2014 timeframe - that had a serious effect on GPU availability.
     
     This time around has not lasted as long yet, but it's not over at this point.

    I can see someone that was going for a 1070 going for a 1080 because of the cryptomining, but a jump to a 1080Ti like the thread topic says is a bit too much of a jump IMHO.

    What is a Midrange GPU in your Book?
    Going by the Title Topic of "Forced to get a 1080ti as mid range gpus prices skyrocket?"
    The OP is not going to Mine from what the First Post of the OP but because of them.
    Mine would be a GTX 1060
    Low End 1050
    Lowest End 1030

    There were a few days when the 1070, 1080, and 1080ti all fell in the SAME price range.
     
     IMO anything less than a 1060 is a waste of time, AMD APUs are already almost competative with the 1050 and 450 (the Ryzen-based APUs probably WILL go head-to-head against those low-end models, the APU in the new XBox One model pretty much IS a RX 450 as I recall the specs on both).
    I'm not sure I'd class the 1060 or 460 as mid-range, they're a noticeable step up from an AMD APU but I'd be more inclined to call those "entry-level" for discrete GPUs given the performance of the high-end of the AMD APU line and where it will be in less than a year.
     
     For reference, I class "business-class graphics" like the Intel APUs as BELOW "entry level", as the GPU capability to run stuff like Word and Office is FAR below what it takes to run any current non-browser game.

    I have an old 1060 3GB card that is not really in use ATM.

    What I mean is that if someone had planned to buy a $300-$400 card for gaming, I can't imagine that person getting an $800-$900 card just because $300 cards are out of stock or extremely overpriced. That person will probably wait 1-2 months or whatever until he can buy the card that matched his budget at a reasonable price, instead of spending twice as much.
