I'm not having much luck finding affordable cards online. I'm looking for anything in a very broad range. From HD 7750 all the way to up to RX-560, as long as the Perf/Price is high.
I have a hunch that we would be seeing video card shortages even if it wasn't for crypto mining. As far as I know, you can't mine crypto on an XBox Series X or Playstation 5 and those are unobtainium as well.ummm.... at this point i think your honestly better off getting a newer i5 or i7 /w Iris XG, or even a Ryzen 5700G /w Radeon and not mess with looking for dedicated video cards, if all your looking for is a 7750/RX 560 class.
IGP to hold you off until the cypto's implode on themselves to oblivion, and then try to snag a second hand 3060/3070 that people will unload in masses.
Thanks for the heads up on the low end. Just lost my card and am definitely not paying these prices. Many other interests, so gaming can wait till prices drop.Well, this is for an Opteron 3365 build. All the options like a rx-560 must be out of stock, because the asking prices are just silly. I dug around a little more and am finding that if one is ok to be on the low end spectrum (IGP equivalent, like an A8-7600), then there is actually plenty of old stuff (pulls from OEM office boxes) available and cheap. R5 240/340 for around $20. I ended up going for a $15 HD7570 because its hdmi port was more preferable over the R5's Display Port.
As long as it ends up playing1080p-ish video smoothly I'm happy enough with the choice.
I had no idea the miners are being this bad again (I thought it was more the sad state of the Fabs). It could also be that government orders of SSDs and RAM are just as bad as impact of miner, maybe worse. Add in XB/PS5 consoles. It's odd that some combination of things is sucking all that capacity dry.
Well, if AMD can't produce more 560 and 580/590's soon then maybe they should start up production of 28nm (Bonaire or Cape Verde) again.
Check the FS/FT thread here if you can - K620 for $35 shipped is a solid deal in todays market and is Maxwell based and gets to use NVidias shiny drivers because Quadro.I haven't looked at GPU stuff in literally months. Last time I looked at anything it was before Ryzen 5000 series release.
I just went poking around to see if any the APU's from Ryzen had settled, since a GPU is pointless to shop for unless it's the center piece of your passion. The APU's are ridiculously priced still, and the lower end CPU's are stupidly priced as well. Then there are these Ryzen 5000 series that are MSRP right there on Amazon. I'm totally confused how a 5600x and 3600x have the same price on Amazon. Then I go looking for GPUs. Not even a gaming GPU, but just a friggn basic GPU so that you can have display on your PC if you do not get an APU. Can't even find basic GPUs for simply display purposes, like a GT730 or similar that are all over $100. Like, where are the dead simple passive heat sink GPUs for HTPC/display that are nothing but driving displays and sending audio over HDMI out that are $50? I guess the market really is just horrible still. I found a GT710 passive heat sink for like $70. Ridiculous. So back to looking at APU's. Ridiculous.

Can get K420 Quadros for $15 shipped on eBay as well on the regular.
