    Prices have dropped, and will continue to drop as no one buys them. Retailers are in the business of moving stock. They'll either adjust pricing to move inventory, or sit on it until it's obsolete and have to write it off.

    Just keep shopping around, there are a lot of decent prices to be found across all price points at the moment. Also start perusing the used markets as new ethereum miners might start the firesale on decent gpus.

    I don't think GPU prices will go up again, for the time being, because etherium and bitcoin, although they have shot up again, aren't anywhere near the crazy levels they were in December.

    Newegg Has 1070ti 500 and 1080 for 550. Now that things are finally coming down, I want to wait to see what the new cards will do

    $279 for a 1050 Ti is not a hot deal. Heck, my brother picked up a 1060 3GB for $179 on sale about 1.5 years ago. Talk about the good ol' days!

    If the used market is any indication, cards are definitely still overpriced.
    Gotta be patient if you want to get a good deal.

    If you're building right now? Well - gonna have to look twice as hard to find something not overpriced :p

    I've personally switched to looking for older gen. I'm looking at a few gtx 760's on ebay ATM. Those got some pretty decent performance at 1080p albeit using more power and generating more heat, but I don't care about that. Comparable performance to a 1050ti for about $170 less.

    the market is still over priced considering GTX 1070's are a year older than before prices soared. Older tech is not worth MSRP + 50% LOL

    Nvidia can stop making gaming GPU cards and they will hardly miss it, hence IMHO the removal of SLI support from recent game releases.

    as they say, the writing is on the wall

    I just came from the [H] F/S, read 2 pages and found one 1080 Ti for $725. IF memory serves, they were selling for $699 NEW

    Why would anyone shell out $700+ for a USED almost no warranty left on it GPU card?

    699 were founder's edition or some brand turbo/single blower fan cards. I bought an ASUS 1080 Ti STRIX for 789$ and most AM were around 750-800 even on launch.
