    Don't see how its good for gamers. Buying used heavily under load 24*7 card is bad deal.
    Also new stocks are still inflated in prices.

    Demand for new gpu's from miners will slow down and gamers will be able to buy gpu's again at normal prices easily... it will take some time , as there must be lot of pent up demand from gamers who weren't able to buy GPU's during last 2-3 months

    Warranty will still remain, for 3 years you will be insured.

    Yes, you're right! One of the forum members bought it for 21k. I myself bought a GALAX 1060 EXOC variant for 22.3k when the mining craze was at its peak

    I'll probably wait for some time. And I am looking to buy Rx 580 as the monitor I have in my mind (Lg 22mp68vq-p) has freesync. Please do tell me at what price should Rx580 8gb should be good to buy! Or vfm.

    Why are 6gb GTX 1060 gpus priced a lot higher than usual right now?Also in sites like mdcomputers the 6gb variants of these cards are out of stock and only 3gb versions are being sold at astronomical price points.Is it due to the cryptocurrency mining craze?

    Gtx 1060 can also be used to mine, also if amd GPUs go out of stock the demand for 1060 rises and you know how greedy a typical indian retailer can be
