Might be a good time for me to unload my golden 7950. I might even be able to make a profit.

I have a 7950 in my PC right now. What should I do? Start mining? Or try to sell this thing online?

Wow, that's really why those are constantly sold out? How much money are you actually able to make with a 7970? I've read that it takes about 4-5 months to pay for itself right now. Kind of nice I guess, if that's the case.

Oh I don't have any of those, I'm actually on a 780 now. While I was gpu shopping for a couple weeks though, I noticed all of those cards constantly sold out. I assumed the R9 2xx series was sold out because it was still new, but was pretty confused about the 7900 series being sold out.

What's with the shortages of these cards anyway? A truck carrying them across the country explode or something?
