Loretta Lynn already captured in song what it's like being a coal miner's daughter, but the market is wide open if someone wants to list some lyrics about being raised by a virtual coin miner. In the meantime, if digging for cryptocurrencies is your thing, consider CyberPowerPC your company store -- it's where you can purchase tools for the job, including a new Mega Miner series of systems designed for gaming and virtual coin mining.
Where have all the Radeon R9 290X graphics cards gone?
Back in December of last year, we noticed that AMD's Radeon R9 290X graphics card was hard to find, which we (and the rest of the web) ultimately surmised was due to the virtual coin mining craze. With the rapid rise in value of Bitcoins, miners who were late to the party started looking at Litecoin mining in hopes of making some easy money. Since AMD's cards do a better job at mining these virtual gold nuggets, the 290X became a hot commodity. Fast forward to today and the card is still in short supply, but is mining still to blame?
