Sooo...I scored a Kingpin notification much sooner than I expected and had a moment of stupidity and bought it. Intended to use the 3080 in the daughter's computer, but it would need a power supply upgrade. I could throw it in another computer along with a 1080ti and mine for bit things, but it would be a while to make the money back.

Considered the unicorn-ity of these things, I could also just sell it. WWHOCPD?

My suggestion is to mine with it but liquidate the coins as soon as you get them and sell the card when coin price drops. It seems very unlikely that 3080 prices will drop enough to outweigh the mining profits in the next 6-12 months.

I would sell it for what I paid for it to a member here on the forum. But I'll bet that some people here would turn around and scalp it or mine with it.

So, that being said. Do what you feel you must. Its none of our calls.
