Micro Center Will Sell You a GPU at MSRP If It’s for Gaming, Not Mining

In light of the cryptocurrency craze, Micro Center is taking action to help gamers acquire graphics cards at a "discount": a GPU can be had at "MSRP or close to MSRP" when purchased alongside core components, such as a CPU and motherboard. Some customers say they got a discount even without buying additional parts, however.

Given that pretty much all retail channels are selling graphics cards for huge price hikes, it's nice to see some retailers implement blocks so that gamers can still buy what they need. Both Amazon and Newegg are selling graphics cards for well above MSRP, but right now it looks like Best Buy is still selling cards at either MSRP or close to MSRP.
