I also found an R9 fury from sapphire for under $200. Those are beastly cards, 4GB HBM. Almost as fast as a 1070.

There are good cards to be had used still for decent prices. Check ebay for GTX 1070's for instance, can be had for around $300.
Those are getting rarer at that price. Seeing more 1070s on ebay for $400-$450 range than closer to the $300 range now. Worst part is, the more time that passes the more the prices keep going up. I have already been selling off my extra cards to a local person who is going to be using them for mining. Since he is making money from it, the cost to him isn't too bad still. I ended up selling my extra 1070 locally for $350 easy peasy that way. He wants my extra 1080 for $450 next. I still have it listed locally on craigslist, facebook market, offerup, and a few others but the majority of people messaging me are people stuck in the past with low ball offers of $150 or so for my 1080. I don't even think the 1080 ever went for that low amount used. I know I paid $660 for it brand new off ebay when it was first released and that was on a promo code. I've been called a few names to over my price in DMs through those apps. Unfortunately it is a sellers market right now and not a buyers market. Eventually it will turn around some, but as I said I think it is going to be at least a year if not two before that happens.

I sold my 1070 a couple months ago for $225 shipped, and people didn’t even bite for a few days ... now there are sold ones closer to $400. Can’t complain really, my 3080 FTW3 was “only” $810 back then.

Videocardz has an article about the 1050 Ti back in stock... sure enough it is at Newegg. One of the out of stock models says #1 best seller.

The 3070 is not a bad price actually, and I hear that nvidia is working on their own SAM implementation. Supposed to be coming out in a driver sometime this February last I heard. As for mining, they are both decent miners, around 60 MH/s I believe. If the 6800 was closer to the 3070, it would be a fine option, but I think it is overpriced even compared to the 3070. If it had the XT, this would be a different matter...

My local Memory Express just got '10+' EVGA XC3 Ultra 3070's in stock and a Sapphire Nitro+ 6800. You can only reserve and pick them up in store (good policy). I've been waffling for a few hours now. Still so overpriced. $829 CAD ($628 USD) for the 3070 and $1,135 ($850 USD) for the 6800.

I'm trying to balance whether I could make enough ETH mining with them during downtime to pay off the exorbitant price bump. I do have a B550 board and 5600X, so I guess the 6800 would have the SAM feature going for it...
Grab them 3070s and never look back...take it from someone who let go of 4x 3070s in Nov.

Think they should start trading in GPU futures just like commodities, if OJ and meat futures can be sold, why not 3080s? Imagine buying an option on 3080s at 699 list due March...

RX 570 8GB right? Still the way miners have cleared off the 6GB plus cards even the RX 570 4GB that sucks for mining seems to sell for around $200 used last time I checked. Briefly considered selling my 1660 Super until I saw how much it would cost to get a 570, and RX 570 is the lowest I'd go on my gaming PC.
4gb cards at that price and even higher.

They might be like gold or bitcoin. You empty your bank account, buy as many video cards as you can find and stash them under your bed waiting for the apocalypse.

The 1050ti was probably the worst buy of that era, despite being pretty popular. Nvidia probably makes a bundle on those things which might be why they resurrected it.

I was hemming and hawing about buying a used mining rx 470 off ebay as a spare but they're gone now.

Hmm, and it's $40 to $50 more than the original MSRP 4 years ago.

I wonder if it's just board partners selling off old stock though.

Purchased an eVGA GTX 1080 FTW for $225 locally. The seller got lucky and found a 3080, and was looking to sell quick. Not too long after that, I found my 3080 and replaced a 1660 ti with the 1080, then moved the 1660 ti to transcode for Plex.

That's a smoking deal, congrats. I'm seeing local 1070's for US$350, so...

Well that was how long ago?

A bit over a year ago I purchased a 1080 ti for $275 here on the forums and then resold to a good buddy for the same price after Folding for a while on it.

I thought that was a good deal then for all parties, but I weighed keeping it or my 5700xt and ultimately passed it on.

I had read (I think here on Anandtech proper) that nvidia has resurrected the 2060 and 2060S so hopefully we will see them in the channels before long. The way they are being put into Dells and other OEMs seems to indicate that there are already a decent number of them being produced.

Prices points were to be $300 & $400 I believe, which says something about how the real pricing on the 3060 is likely to shake out. I don't think we'll see it listed at less than $400 for quite some time.

Haha, remember all the Turing cards that got "dumped" because the 3xxx series was going to destroy their value? Hilarious, right? I moved too slow on some CL listings. Would have been genius in retrospect.

Early Oct 2020. Going rates for that card were a solid $300-350 at the time, so $225 was a great deal even then. Dinked around with selling my 1660 ti at the time, but ended up upgrading my Plex rig from a 1050 ti to the 1660 ti, and selling the 1050 ti for $100 locally instead.

Almost flawless execution. The only mistake was selling the 1050ti when you could nearly have covered that 1080 purchase now...

Yikes.
