Why the hell do miners think that mining with graphics cards is efficient?


Is there another way?


Ya.

Because they aren't mining bitcoins or other SHA-256 based currencies.

scrypt-baesd currencies like Litecoin are best mined with GPU hardware currently.

If you want a 290X, better get on that before it's too late!

There has been a 290x on amazon.com IN STOCK since this topic was made for 590 with BF4 and a door hanger.

so much for not being able to get them retail.

I miss when the R9 290 was $399. Should have bought three of them then. But a single one is being great.
