Except no person is controlling the supply of GPUs. Most people are lucky to get a couple to resell. GPUs and tickle me elmos aren't cases of a few actors buying up all the supply and reselling for profit as they are the only holder of them. That almost never works and certainly never with mass produced products. These are cases of demand greatly outstripping supply (at MSRP) and the resellers moving the price to the equilibrium price between supply and demand.It's irrelevant to my point. It could be anything. Concert tickets, dildos, whatever. Just doing what you can to control the supply so you're the only one that is selling it.
I find those that sell the Tickle Me Elmo's and similar hot items just as bad. Buying for the sole purpose of selling at a highly inflated, artificial price point because you reduced the supply.
Sure, it's legal. It's making money. I just don't find it very cool. I won't support it, I won't buy from them, I won't say "great job!". They're successfully manipulating the market and the market conditions for their benefit at the expense of others. I'll let those that find GPU's, Xbox's, etc. essential and I just won't buy until I can get one new, warranty, MSRP or less.
