Images and tables like these paint a clear picture of why people should start selling their GPUs. I've found that using real examples is the best way to convince someone of something. That being said, this then should make it clear that now is VERY BAD time to buy GPUs. Buying coins? Maybe. But definitely it is clear that buying mining hardware now is a big NO NO.

bullshit    they are cheaper so buy them.  

under the following reason you have dirt cheap power.

now if you don't have cheap power don't buy them.

also be able to do another buy if they drop lower next month.

once again you need dirt cheap power to follow this advice.

if your power is not cheap do not buy gpu's


please don't tell people to not buy gear

tell people to not buy gear if they spend more ethen 8 cents a kwatt  full price of 8 cents includes cooling and all power from power company.




right now some GPU prices are pretty low, but last month they were VERY low, and have started to come back up again, i saw a MSI 1070ti new from retail websites for around £420 (bought mine in january for £480) prices seem to went a bit up right now. seems alot of people are saying not to waste money buying a card but does that mean DO NOT BUY THE NEW GPU when it comes out?? since that would be like 10x the speed of old cards it seems a good opportunity to buy that GPU when its released.

Also i live in the UK and pay 0.21pence per kw electric is shit here

I live in Russia. The cost of 1 kW of electricity in our country £0,042 or cheaper (Village tariff-for the rural population a discount of up to 30%)  Smiley
At us even 1070Ti costs more cheaply, but if to take in Germany that it is possible to save 10-15% of cost. Here is bought a lot of miners https://www.computeruniverse.ru
At such prices for video cards and electricity, I would not mining in UK Cheesy

I'd like to save some money for the next-level card
Also, if it's not the scam, NVidea will give to us, to customers-miners, a new-level card in this August
Hope for it, really
Also it'll be perfect for different complex modelling

A new series of video cards will be expensive in the first months. Another problem is the software for mining. Developers will have to optimize the software for mining on new chips. This also takes time.
Asics, FPGA  very quickly reduce the profit on the GPU.
If I were investing in mining, I would do it now
