Yeah, capitalist amerika only. Prices are normal here. Unfortunately, that also means some board partners take their own time sending their non-ref stuff here.

GPU mining isn't economical anymore, for bitcoin at least. You can't cover your electicity bill without moving to dedicated hardware.
Another idea I had was the spy/sniper being able to climb into the soldier's rocket launcher and be launched across the map, dealing more damage, but no splash.

only if you don't know how to shop.

They can still be found at retail price if you actually pay attention.

Looking at amazons best sellers for GPUs I'm not seeing them either so Its not like they are selling like hotcakes...
