Well, I'll be... I guess the Best Buy back office folks fixed the problem, so it looks like I'm getting the MSI Ventus OC, after all.
My first new GPU in five years. Now to keep fingers crossed that it doesn't get poached while on its way.

I'm still a bit leery over the whole POSCAP/MLCC thing despite the new drivers being hailed as the fix.
Guess I'll find out soon.
The 3080 Ventus OC is a solid card, I had one for a week and can tell you first hand that it will solve any erective problems. Joe Montana throwing a footyball through a tire swing aint got nothing on the Vent!
