Default GPU Mining Price Spike

Thinking about upgrading my GPU for a while now, most likely to a gtx 1060 but not really sure with the giant spike in video card prices lately due to mining. I mean 1060's go for up to $400 now... Anyone see this dropping soon? I mean too routes if not, Gtx 1050 ti most likely, or pay a little extra from the new 1060 and get a 1080, because now 1070's are going higher then even the 1080's now.

Do you think prices will return to normal? There was a similar incident in the past as well, if so, how long?

Dude I have no idea. I have 3 more builds I need to do and all 1060s and 1070s are out of stock. Nvidia should put code in the bios to not be able to mine on Geforce designated cards.

That's a genius idea, probably profiting massively off this though.

All they care about is sales so obviously yea they are. It just ****s their actual customers.
