    Why is Microcenter scalping people.

    We still have tariffs in place. This probably adds 20% to the price once you include mark-up. Also Asia is still experiencing chip and component shortages. This has driven up the prices on those parts.

    LG CX 48" 55" 65" 77" 4K OLED TV 120Hz VRR HDMI 2.1 - Microcenter (Refurbished)

    Do any of these have ATSC 3.0? I use an antennae and online services rather than cable.

    1080ti vs mid-tier current gen for video editing

    If you are video editing at 4k, the extra memory on the 1080ti can help with stability in some programs.

    HDMI 2.1 AVR Recommendations (2021)

    Realistically, I think it will take two years to really iron out the bugs and deal with shortages pushing up prices and slowing release dates. If you can't wait, I would get the 8K Yamaha at Costco that pops in stock sometimes.

    Crucial SSD P2 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 SSD Retail CT1000P2SSD8 $79.99 (Lowest price ever?)

    Very tempted. Can anyone confirm this is a TLC drive? (Not qlc.) The Tom's review mentions a fear of manufacturers changing specs at any time. This drive has no DRAM for those who care.

    Every desirable video card model is now OOS tonight. Unreal.

    Yeah, eBay. Normally I would sell on the forums, but needed the money quickly.

    Every desirable video card model is now OOS tonight. Unreal.

    Just sold my 1080ti for $530. Bought for $280. Things are nuts right now. When people suggest waiting, I say buy the first card you see in store.

    On my 3070, I had problems when one monitor was on displayport and the other was on hdmi. Lot's of gltiches, stutters, screen disconnects. When i switched to displayport for both monitors the issues cleared up.

    Delaware. No, state taxes for his business registered there. Likely not a home address. He's a pro. Abuse is just a cost of doing business for him.

    What do you think the 3000 and 6000 series prices will be by June 2021 and will early adopters be crying?

    I just got an MSI 3070 Trio X for less than $700. I am thinking to bring it back to the store though. I am not sure it is worth it for the money over my 1080ti. I guess I could sell the 1080ti for $350 to $400. But is 30-40% increase in speed worth it for $350? I am not sure. $500 is a...

    Well, that's a lot of 3080s...

    My Microcenter says that a lot of the video cards are drop-shipped and arrive in the middle of the day. They are immediately put on shelves. The normal delivery truck comes on Thursdays and stuff gets put on shelves Friday or Saturday morning. But high-end, high demand items dropped-shipped...
