Pretty much. The market clearing price of these cards is clearly way higher than retail. The fact people can but and resell them so easily with such a markup is a testament to that. This is more of perfect storm of chip fab demand than anything. 2 new consoles, 2 new lines of video cards, and a...
Got my Ghost in pieces to upgrade the GPU and clean up the loop. Hoping to fit a reservoir in their now too since the 3080 FE is quite small with a water block. Air bubbles are a huge PITA without a reservoir. Also looking to create a better loop draining system which is tough in this case...
I managed 2 on the last BB drop. Their queue system is quite nice and when they do get stock it seems like a decent amount. You just have to jump on it quick. They've had drops on the following days:
Wouldn't be surprised if the next one 1/5
I almost never upgrade my CPU alone. I figure if I am going to go through the work of a cpu upgrade, might as well do the motherboard as well. Motherboards hold value surprisingly well. Actually managed to sell my last one (Asus IX Hero) for $300 making money on it.
Exactly, if you don't want to pay high prices either plan ahead and hope to get lucky or wait. No one needs any of these. We've been waiting for a card faster than a 2080 ti for how many years now? Needless to say demand will outstrip supply.
Lots with bids over $1k based on model:
I've actually sold 2 brand new 2080 ti's in the last 2 days for $1750 each. That's crazy for you.
This is going to depend a lot of the number of slots the GPU will take up and how many your case has. Air cooling with 2 GPU slots is probably going to be difficult in SFF depending on the case you go with if these rumored power consumption numbers are correct. You will likely be able to get...
Oh it's better than that. Apparently Clinton has a bunch of super assassins that can have anyone she wants killed at any time yet managed to let a guy named Weiner foil her election chances with dick pics.
