Waiting patiently for a RTX3090 to become purchasable, i grew ever more impatient, so I bought the next best GPU to hold me over until I can get either 3080Ti or 3090! Please dont hate on me, if you cant find one in stock, i can use my powers to source one for you if you'd like, just hit me up. Also, please dont worry, cause as soon as I get my hands on either the 3080Ti (when released) or 3090, I'll have this card in the F/S forums for ~$700ish doll hairs! Act fast, as im sure someone will steal it off my hands for that rock bottom price!

You've got me beat. I bought a 1660Ti as a temp card for the new build I did last October while looking for, well, something. 6800XT, 3080, 6900XT, 3090... whatever I could actually buy. Now the 1660Ti is in my old X79 rig and I have couple spare 4GB GTX 680s. I don't think I could handle the 210 though. It's 2D to 3D performance ratio is just too much for me. It could be worse though. At least you're not talking about hooking a Sony GDM-FW900 up to a Matrox Parhelia for a 2D demo.

I managed to score a 3090FE last week. You just have to be diligent, patient and even a bit lucky.

I settled and bought a 5700xt Pulse and it's working fantastically. I'm glad i did because now most 5700xt's are sold out like everything else.

I have an Evga 8800 GT SC if you can Sli
I have a pair of EVGA GTX 680 FTW 4GB cards I probably ought to sell. I bought them to run Skyrim in surround mode. 7680x1440 across 3 27" screens. It was glorious. I was just going to recycle them, but with the vid card market going insane I might actually be able to get enough for them to bother boxing them up and driving over to the UPS store.

FYI the Dell R7 250 2GB GDDR3 can be found as low as $15 on ebay if you are diligent. With a thermal paste swap and some tweaking it can overclock 100-200 MHZ or more on core and memory. I BIOS modded mine to 1150 core and memory with slightly lower voltage then stock. Card is perfectly adequate for 720p/768p gaming on many newer titles and can still use current AMD drivers. Perfect placeholder card until the high-end GPU shortages improve.

lol... I have a ton of older video cards laying around if anyone needs something to get by for a bit! :LOL:

Aside from my old AGP and PCI cards I will never part with (Voodoo's, GeForce 2's and 4's and a 6800GT); I believe I still have a PCIe GTX 285, GTX 460, 2 GTX 770's and 2 GTX 1080 SC's (the 1080's are in a media rig right now).

Found and picked up a lot of these 6800XT.
Out of the goodness of my heart I am willing to sell for MSRP of $650 each to my [H] brothers looking for one.
Don't lowball me, I know what I got.
You got a true single slot card. While drivers are somewhat an issue, just the fact that it isn't an ultra fat power sucking card is something anyhow.

But I'm not interested since it's not VESA local bus.
