That's when there was just a general GPU shortage and not another crypto boom. My Microcenter has been sold out all week. 5700xt is one of the best bang for the buck mining cards right now.Do you have a microcenter near you? I've seen 5700xt's there fairly often, although I don't really remember seeing a nitro+. Most days I went they would have at least a few.
I've also been looking for one of these as MSRP for awhile now. Does anyone have recommendations outside of what was already mentioned?
