    Should I get 570s for ETH mining/selling?

    I found a supply of RX 570s for about $220 each. Would it be worth picking them up (under the caveat they dont arrive for a month) to resell for ~350 (current price on ebay)?

    Unlikely... Ethereum is crashing because of difficulties and robbing of a lot of Ethereum coin robberies/hacks so cards will (SHOULD) get back in stock soon.

    That said there's always some cryptocurrency around the corner that will start the next craze.

    720s seems like too much in my opinion, I'd settle for a 675LT

    I'll have to agree with you there. It's a nicer looking car too, I'm not really a fan of the 720s styling.

    From what I'm seeing it looks like a 6 month ROI right now. Not sure if I want to hunker down on that.
