I do have one - It's a beast but was a surprisingly great value - I bought it on a post Christmas sale in January 2015 sale for 778 USD from over across when our money was at par. There is still no compelling reason to upgrade 2.5 years later. That money still buys about the same performance - a little bit sad - I thought Vega was going to be that compelling reason.

I haven't been following the latest mining rush but I assume (maybe wrongly?) that it's still not worth it if you pay for your power.

Actually, it is, even when you pay for the electricity.
