    maybe if you use solar to power it then the investment would make sense just incase the 'Coin' would loose value.

    Hmmm.... if these cards can still do full cuda processing I could see these being useful for 3D rendering via the gpu not just mining bitcoins.

    Getting a feed-in tariff boost for your mining would be rather amusing.

    I have never really understood dedicated cards, why don't the manufacturers simply use their own cards to mine the coins?

    It's the same reason people set up shop in Dawson at the start of the gold rush selling pans and shovels- in the long it's generally more profitable to sell the equipment than to take the risk mining

    Most of the ASIC hardware suppliers do a best if both-they use their new hardware to mine whilst it's very profitable and the sell then to the public and Chinese miners as soon as the viability drops.

    actually the only company who does sell hardware is bitmain and they charge you the price they think you make mining therefor they get tripled profit.
    1. They sell their old used equipment which is hardly profitable anymore for them.
    2. They make insane profit on the very cheap made products these chips cost them about a few dimes.
    3. They count how much btc you can make and fix the price to match that. You might make a little profit but don't be suprised if you end up loosing money.

    Especially when prices are high everybody jumps onto the mining business to get a few grains of the big wins, but assure you most never make a decent profit. Or ever get the money they expected from mining. Only the early adopters where so lucky, and criminals took much of the other less fortunate people. There is ofcourse a enormous amount of criminals involved including so called trusted exchanges who suddenly disappear at will.
    So think hard before you burn your fingers on this dangerous game
