The much dreaded mining craze is almost at an end, and consequently the graphics card prices are also returning to their original prices. The latest price drop in the gaming GPU market comes in the form of NVIDIA’s mid-tier card, the GeForce GTX 1060 from EVGA. The card has finally returned to it’s original price of $250.

For the past 5-6 months, the GTX 1060 had been selling for around $300. The other partner cards are still priced in the $260 to $290 range. This GPU is ideal for FHD (1080p) and will even run most games at 1440p resolution, although you’ll be limited in the more graphics intensive titles.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 From EVGA Back To Original Price ($250)

If you play at 1080p and are looking to upgrade this may be your chance, although considering that the next-gen GeForce cards could be revealed in the coming months you should probably be patient. At the same time, the Steam summer sale is underway and (if you haven’t already spent all your money) if you can’t wait that long to try out all those gorgeous games you just bought, then you know what to do…


  1. Garbage. The GPU should be cheaper now that the hardware is that much older.

    These asshats should get their distribution balls slapped in a vice for gouging the prices like they have. Memory manufacturers are getting slammed with fines and wonderful stuff for them for gouging/making the demand up for memory and nand flash.

    They need to be slammed with a lawsuit quicker than anything.
