    Even if I had tons of cash to throw around I wouldn't even consider buying that.

    My dad always used to say that the one who asks is not stupid. The one who pays is.

    Sucks to be Cyberpunk2077 fan and have poor financial control.

    Some people have really weak spots for "limited" offerings. Lots of Japanese people I know payed good amount of money to get limited/special items (even digital goods).
    According to them, they won't be able to buy it ever again in their lifetime, so they have to buy it now.

    I bet the guy selling it is the sort of person who decided to hoard all the toilet roll.

    So narrow minded in here. There's plenty of millionaires and billionaires who simply don't care about the cost. Some of them could be collectors. These will sell out, no doubt. They're not for the general public.

    Holy Moly...you can buy a pretty good used car for that amount of money...
    As for buying this particular card on ebay for thousands of dollars in the immortal words of P.T. Barnum: "There's a sucker born every minute"

    Yep. Easily in their tens of thousands. Multi millionaires certainly.

    Didn't the star wars Titans go for extreme amounts on Ebay too? Limited edition stuff sells no matter what kind of product it is

    Someone having the money to buy something stupid doesn't make the product less stupid. It's not narrow-minded to ask why anyone, regardless of wealth, would spend this amount of money on a cheap cosmetic difference. It's not like the heatsink is made of gold.

    Slapping an AMG sticker on your Mercedes C-class isn't going to suddenly make it double in value.

    The world is full of suckers. I'm sure they will sell all "limited edition" GPUs.

    Seeing as someone is bidding on it on eBay for over $4000, it clearly has value to them. Demand price.
