these are horrible, unless you're buying them for gaming.
These cards are awesome. Most efficient bitcoin mining gpu available.
haha... so what? have fun with the depreciation in value. only one looking to buy this should be someone that is going to use it for gaming, possibly wasting it for bitcoins when they arent otherwise engaged
i think it's safe to say that most people don't understand the economics at work here, or are wealthy enough that they just choose to ignore them. buying a 7970 to mine bitcoins would be bordering on the foolish *even if your electricity costs are 0c*. the only valid play would be speculative, but then you'd be better off just buying the bitcoins off mtgox.
