That's a nightmare situation. Are you definitely looking to stick with AMD - is it a manufacturer's webstore? Because the 6GB GTX 1060 is pretty close in terms of both price and performance if you're able to make the switch.
I would love to buy anything, but GTX 1060 6GB costs 527$ in the store, and that feels like someone is squeezing me by the balls. All I can do right now is to wait for the price drop and increase my budget slowly. Thanks for compassion :(
Best graphics card... given the bare shelves
Destiny 2 made me recoil.
I'm pretty certain big mining farms doesn't go to Scan to purchase their components.
It's the smaller home-miners that buy up all the stock from retailers. And they'll just go to another retailer if Scan don't want to sell them GPU's.
Yeah, you're totally right. I'm hoping the more PC gaming-focused retailers will follow suit so we have some places to buy our GPUs from!
That's grand, ideally they should be going to the distributors or manufacturers direct if they're seriously buying in bulk. So long as the retailers still get some support hopefully we'll still be able to buy GPUs!
You might actually be able to buy a new graphics card before the crypto-miners now
If you're still scouting after Vega drops, it's almost worth just checking out the cheapest GTX 1080 Ti with a non-blower cooler.
Unless you're a seriously hardcore overclocker, when they're running at out-of-the-box speeds there's really not a huge amount between the different cards.

Yeah, totally see where you're coming from re. the paddles. You're right, they are far too easy to actuate when you don't mean to.
But with them removed I find it a really comfortable pad and the build quality excellent too. Been using mine for years and love the weight!
Before a year was up my elite had the rubber grips peeling off. The left paddle is now super loose and requires a very firm press to activate. Overall I've been very disappointed in the longevity of the controller and wouldn't get one again nor recommend it.
To be honest, it's not really basing this on nothing, is it? Sure, it might well come out a long while after Rockstar have made a ton of cash on the console versions, but there will be a version of the game for PC. It will be a PC game, so as a PC gaming website we'll write about it.
And from a purely capitalist PoV, it's a whole bunch of easy money for Rockstar when the code work has already been done for the PC-based consoles.
It's still multiple articles reporting on a console-exclusive game on a PC gaming website. It's not that fact that it's years out that's the problem. It's the fact that they don't even have the honesty and respect for buyers to CONFIRM if it's going to come to PC or not. What's the problem with just waiting until it's actually CONFIRMED before reporting on it? That's all I'm asking. Or hey, one speculation article upon announcement, then complete silence until they have the integrity to announce whether it's actually coming to PC or not. I really think that's a better policy and makes you look better as a news site.
And the capitalist argument is just as easily undermined. Hell, I remember looking forward to Heavy Rain on PC, until they decided to make it a PS3 exclusive. Destiny, Forza Horizon 2, Halo 5, Bloodborne, The Last of Us, would all have been a lot of easy money too! It's sometimes more profitable for individual companies to keep a game OFF pc if they're paid enough. Rockstar certainly didn't think RDR1 was worth the effort and it hasn't given an honest answer about a PC release since maybe the 90s.
That's the spirit! :)
