I remember there was a short period of time where miners were only buying the “cheaper” cards and the 1080 Ti price was unaffected. That’s when my friend and I offloaded our used 1070s for $75 more each than we paid for them brand new and then bought brand new 1080 Ti FTW3s for MSRP. One of the best PC hardware decisions I ever made since that card lasted me well over 3 years and is still going to be used in my second rig for years to come.3 years ago the price of a 1080Ti was well over $1,000 due to mining. Just wait for the inevitable pullback. Then you'll get mining cards for cheap as people look to liquidate. It's all cyclical.
