    And everyone blamed scalpers for outrageous prices.
    My, my...greed is the only game played worldwide without any doubt.

    Well, they know that it'll be scalped anyway, so they charge the scalper's prices instead.
    Since it ships from China, you have also to consider that you'll be charged your country's import fees and tax on top of the $1100.

    Stop using Newegg, Amazon, Alibaba and so... you will see price droping down.

    As i have said many time, in real physical shop the price is just above official price right now (they have to do marging) for ANY video card.
    The only thing is that you still wait a week or two if not in stock due to shortage.

    Exept if you want it, you shouldn't pay price like that, as there is no more reason to have those price.

    I think its a mistake since its no longer listed on their site. They have 6700xt listings cheaper than that.

    Honestly gamers have shown they will pay literally any price for a GPU. $1100 seems fine to me considering they would all sell out at that price anyway.

    I blame the miners far more than the scalpers. The miners caused the unprecedented shortage, which created the starved market for the scalpers. Eventually the stores had to raise their own prices when scalpers were buying what little the shops were getting after the miners took the lion's share. If a shop made 100 bucks of profit selling a card to a scalper, who then made 300 dollars of profit (without even paying any taxes) reselling the card, what kind of braindead shopkeeper would allow that to continue forever?

    That's a third-party selling on newegg, not newegg themselves.

    $1100 for a 1080p card in 2021... what a time to be alive.

    I wish that statement was true even locally the shops are charging scalper prices.

    As for this pricing on the 6600xt it's not surprising the 3060 pricing is also insane on on Newegg ffs

    Easier said than done.

    I don't think that changes a whole lot. The point of choosing one marketplace over another is because of things like customer support, product quality, shipping policy, and fair pricing. Newegg themselves might not sell at such prices but it doesn't speak well of them if they do nothing to stop such a behavior in their own marketplace.

    Newegg should really reel in third party pricing. This is a reflection on them in my opinion.

    Not over here, as video cards that are in stock in physical shops (no matter if small computer shops or big electronics chains) cost somewhere between 2x to 3x the MSRP still. Everybody seems to be on the scalper train these days.

    Well i wouldnt pay that much myself, luckily i got a Gigabyte RTX 3060 12 GB as a birthday gift, so i cant complain and im happy (even if it cost around 6000 swedish) But they were in stock here at inet.se at the time so i asked my dad if he could get one and he did. They were sold out a while later and it even said not available, so i feel i was lucky

    I've been shopping Newegg for 18 years now but I've heard good things about B&H Photo and a search for video cards on their site returns semi reasonable prices albeit via a wait list. I may start using them in the future.

    It was a 3rd party seller, not newegg itself. I havent bought anything from newegg in 4 years. And never will again.

    this is a 3rd party vendor hoping for the foolish.

    these cards are going to be supplied in good numbers in the US and EU before XMAS
    .

    this is a even higher yield gpu than big navi, so more gpus from the same number of wafers and wait, there's more wafers.
    this will be the first series of cards since the mining craze that will be available in good numbers near regular prices. the price may still be high if the cards need to be transshipped to smaller countries, but all G7 nations will have excellent supply.
    for friends in the east and south it may take until after xmas. AMD has planned for this to be the breakout series so a greater number of these have already been fabbed, but production of videocards is often a 3-4 nation affair... step 1 is Taiwan, step 2 if you're lucky (or gigabyte) is Taiwan, but could be China, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore etc..., step 3 is shipping from assembly to regional inspection (the "made in" ... step), step 4 is from Asia to the country of delivery.
