Thank the PS4 and Xbox one for higher GPU prices

Prices before the ps4 and xbox one launch were trending at 120 dollars for a 7850 and 140 for a 7870. Now at 7850 is 160 minimum and the 7870 200. Thanks sony and Microsoft!

Consoles are partly to blame for RAM prices. Not GPU.

That's the bitcoin idiots.
