    I found a great direct-from-manufacturer outlet on ebay through all this, if they list a 3090 with offers available i'd for sure consider them again.

    I'm sure it's gonna be 1000-1100.

    Why overpriced?

    RTX 3090 10GB would cost 1000, add 14GB more and that makes 1500.

    It will sell well, as it will be the best gaming card available.

    $1500 aint bad, if you have a job.

    You can buy and assemble a full desktop PC with 1500 USD, and not a bad one either!
    Even considering you're a rich kid, buying the 3090 is just a bad thing to do imo.
    Just get the 3080, if you can, or wait for a version with more vram of said card.

    Personally I'm really interested to see what Nvidia made with the 3070 and how it will stack up with the Navi2.

    The price premium for the Strix OC almost exactly equals the price I paid for a brand new GTX 580 back in 2011 where I live. A different design and slightly better cooler isn't quite worth that much.

    $ 1,799.99

    Absolutely crazy prices.

    Some idiots are going to pay over $1,000 more for 10% over a 3080.

    The old saying is apt here: "fools and their money are easily parted"

    Or they just don't care because they have so much money, or they are doing video editing and the 3090's performance is like 30-40% higher than $5000 Quadro's from last generation and VRAM actually matters.

    People's attitudes about the 3090 seems to reflect their financial situation.
    Everyone is different, I don't see what the big deal is honestly.
    Most people I know that can spend this kind of cash comfortably didnt get there by accident.
    Not exactly "idiots" or "rich kids".....sigh..

    They should have called it 3090 Titan. I think people might view it a little differently.

    Or maybe a Gaming Titan.

    2x overpriced by already hyper-bloated prices that we've been sadly accustomed to. Just to remind you guys of prices in ye olde days... a 6800 GT which performed not too different than a 6800 GTX/Ultra (the full blown chip IIRC) was $249.90 CAD. In terms of how many times it's cut down, that puts it at either Titan or 1 step above a Titan.

    It's sad to see people praise Jensen for these crap prices and performance increases over a generation that practically had no performance increase and prices that were a joke to the point that they resulted in lower total profit vs what they wanted. Then again, for someone like Jensen it was probably worth losing whatever amount of profit that was in exchange for getting people even more used to insane full-retard pricing.

    Gee, who would have thought that a monopoly over the high-end of any market would result in horrific price-gouging. Just because you can afford it and don't care, doesn't mean you're not an asshole.

    Why so emotional over other peoples spending habits?
    Lots of people out there that can afford nice things that are not assholes.
    Maybe you want other people to abstain just so that you can get a price you want?
    That's not how the world works, sorry to say.

    While I think things are overinflated pricewise (to increase margins) you're also giving a relatively simple take on it.


    You can't compare a 3090 to a 6800GT. No one is going to take you seriously if you compare it to a 6800GT. A modern GPU is at least 120x more complex than a 6800GT. It's build on a process that costs an order of magnitude more to develop. It's verified by a machine that costs more than the entire development cost of the 6800GT and they are simulated by design systems that cost more than the entire 6800GT. Nvidia itself had 1800 employees in 2004 - it has 13,000 now to support the massive hardware/software stack it needs to build out for each GPU.

    Even if Nvidia maintained the same margins the price of cards still would have significantly increased.

    Only about $1000 overpriced (relative to already extremely high prices from a few years ago). This price gouging crud is insane! This is comparable to if a loaf of bread went to $49.99 to me. That's how over the top it is. I absolutely cannot believe anyone would pay anything close to these prices, but I guess they do? That sh** is more than I ever paid for a used car.

    I bought a brand new 1987 (Long time ago, I know, but they don't cost $60,000 now) 750cc Kawasaki Vulkan motorcycle for the price of 3 of these cards.
    Would you trade this for 3 Video cards? INSANE!!!

    You've never paid more than $2000 for a car? Bike is nice though, recently got a Street Triple RS but I think in hindsight I would have went for a cruiser like the Bolt/Vulkan or Bobber

    Nope. Never could afford a new one and most I paid was $1200 for used (priorities ;)). I road the $h** out of that bike though!

    Scalping is a completely different matter, that can largely be avoided with patience.
    Obviously, no one should buy anything they can't afford.
