Since we don't have a Price Check subforum, I have a quick question - I recently bought an MSI 3060 ti Ventus 2X OC from a forum member here for $540. I have opened the box and the card but I have not installed it. I have every intention of using it, but I will be able to get an ASUS 3070 TUF so I want to sell the MSI. The retail price of the card is $470. I am thinking of $570 shipped USPS bare card. Is that a fair price? Given the recent rules of banning scalping, I want to make sure my sale would not come across as scalping, and gets permanently banned. Otherwise, I would not post the sale in HardForum.

Thanks in advance.

This is why the "anti-scalping" rule is stupid, especially with the draconian penalties. Let the market dictate the price. If you post it for sale and it sells, then your price was fine. If you post it and it doesn't, then it's too high. There are way too many "entitled" people whining about pricing.

FWIW, I sold my MSI 3060Ti Gaming X Trio for $570 shipped (which was my price + insured shipping to the recipient). Sold within 2 hours in FS/FT on 12/24.

We don't have a rule here against Price Check, do we?

Thanks for the info. Was it new or opened/used? For me I have no problem with the rule, but it would be nice to have some guideline. As it stands I am 20% over the MSRP, so it could be seen as scalping? But whatever it is, I am willing to follow the rule to stay as a member here.

Mine was used, and it also could have been construed as scalping as it was used and I included the actual cost of taxes, shipping, PP Fees, etc. when I set my price. Retail on my card was $489.99.

Yes, I'm pretty sure there's a rule against price checking also, but I'd have to look again. It might just be in the FS/FT section.

if youre selling it here, go for what you got into it or less. dont try and flip it to make extra profit and no one will have an issue. so if you paid 540 and you charge that(even though its used and should be a bit less) plus $30 shipping it seems fair. also, i think price checks are usually in genmay....

But is this a "Price Check" thread or a "Am I scalping because I don't want to get banned" thread? I feel like these types of threads are going to be more common (see also Law of Unintended Consequences).

I doubt it, unless you are charging ebay prices I doubt anyone reports you.
