Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I noticed that newegg is advertising video cards as Bitcoin mining gear. Its under computer hardware/video cards, the first advertisement in their slide deck at the moment.

Not exactly useful for BTC mining any more. I thought it was just interesting to see a company as large as Newegg mention Bitcoin in any advertisement regarless of how accurate it is.

I still can't believe not a single GPU make has started doing so.

Manufacturers are likely aware that miners (scrypt) are buying up all available GPU's?

Yeah Newegg is helping with the Bitcoin hype but it's not really realistic to be mining with any gpu as far as I can tell.  I guess for Newegg it's whatever can help them sell!

Well if it's custom made it is most likely bad. Look at iBuyPower they are using i3 which is water cooled in their top tier for mining.  Roll Eyes

So how long until Newegg accepts Bitcoin from customers who want to buy "Bitcoin miners"?

Except this isn't true in the slightest. The GPUs bought for alt coin mining is only a drop in the bucket compared to GPUs sold for graphocs.

This is great!

All these high end GPUs are going to be bought up by the uninformed.

They will get home, plug them in, start mining, and quickly realize that they made a big mistake.

This means I will be able to buy myself some very nice 2nd hand graphic cards on Ebay very soon!

I don't think a very high percentage will "quickly realize" anything.

Else they would have realized beforehand and not started mining in the first place.

DOn't you think most sales on ebay are for bitcoin mining at this point?  how do you know they are mostly sales for graphics?  especially the older cards, they must be for mining, I don't know why as it's not profitable though.

This is like selling a 49er gold panning equipment but not accepting his gold for payment.
