Bitcoin @ $10,000 + causing video cards prices to soar!


That's right folks... Regardless if you buy into the current valuation of a bitcoin, you'll be paying more for your computers video card right now because people are using them to mine for the bitcoin! 

I went to buy my kid another of the same video card I got him two years ago so he could stack them and have "crossfire", however that same exact card is selling for $750 new! I only paid $240 open box, but even the used ones are fetching open box prices plus a few hundred - TWO YEARS LATER! 

Don't believe me? Go to Micro Center right now and tell me if you find a SINGLE AMD graphics card they have in stock (AMD are said to be the best for bitcoin mining). 

What are your thoughts?
