Them and all the other miners need to apologize to the world. Video cards have been ridiculous for years now. People are starting to think $500 video cards is normal.

Hmmmm...

1 - Not going to apologize.
2 - Cards have hit prices higher than 500 before bitcoin even came out.

In certain price brackets it has been normal for years. That was the case long before mining was a thing.
I think he means 480/580 level cards that were supposed to be $200-$300 cards, not the Titan level cards.

Correct. Normal meaning average, middle of the road, etc.

Although I guess VR has skewed everyone's perception. I have a 1060 which should be more than enough for 1080p gaming, but I would consider it bare minimum for VR, and it struggles on some scenes.

I paid $579 for a 7970 back in the day, so flagship cards have been pricey long before mining was a big deal. With that said, last year i was buying up RX480 4gb for $169 like candy and today the 580s have been $300 which sucks. For most people it seems to be 1050ti or 1080

I find this quite funny, especially in the states I see used mining part outs all over the place.
