What the fuck happened?
>>

Cryptocurrency mining.
>>
>>61791576
ethereumfags throwing the prices of GPUs out of whack, selling them out everywhere, and making it impossible to get GPUs for reasonable prices
>>
>>61791614
>>61791598
They had 5 years to make graphics cards just for mining, not gaming. Why didn't they corner that market?
>>
>>61791643
Ethereum (which is designed to not be ASICable and is specifically good for GPUs) didn't pick up in popularity until recently enough for GPU makers to care. Other coins hopped to ASICs faster and GPU makers didn't care.

Stupid ass OP.

R9 290's NEVER went for $500 in fact they recently suck for Ether mining because they are extremely power hungry. You have to force the blower to 100% to cool a ref card and even then you must OC it past 1000 mhz to even touch 30mhs IF you are lucky.

I actually bought 2 ref 290's for $330 (listing included both) on ebay 1.5 months ago and it was a bad decision IMHO, sold them for a small profit.

Going rate is $200 for a reference card but some can be found lower like this one:

I have honestly NO idea where you got $500 from.

google "r9 290" and look at the right side.
>>
>>61791715
Dude thats irrelevant.

Go look at the market on ebay, I gave you a fucking LINK to a $185 BIN auction.

That shit on google is just shit internet stores trying to take advantage of idiots.

Go look on fucking ebay for REAL current values. No one buys that shit you posted on Jewgle.
>>
OP YOUR CARD IS ONLY WORTH AT MAX $200.

Go ahead, try to sell it for $500 youll be laughed at.

Check fucking eBay.

Jesus you fucks are dumb.

I can bet a used r9 290 here for 250 is that good or bad?
>>
>>61796207
The 390 is basically a 290 with a higher clockspeed and more VRAM.
>>
>>61791576
Sell it and get a 1080, lmao.
