    That would cost me NZ$2,394.56 If I was to buy it from your country then add GST (goods and services Tax) + freight + Duty all up would be over $3000 dollars

    I'm right there with you. Those who want a new card really should wait for reviews. The 10 series is/was very long lived. This 20 series will get replaced in under 18 months. Im personally waiting until I see 7nm parts for AMD's Navi and Nvidia before I replace my 1070. Still playing at 2k as I have been waiting for 4k to get to the point where GPU's easily handle it.

    lol 18 months. noo way.. 10 series was milked because AMD didnt have anything to compete for the longest time, now were expecting 30%-50% increases, and you think replaced in 18 months, the 20 series is going to be milked even more then the 10 series was! 24+ months easy for the 2080+ life span

    Can you imagine how RTX buyers would feel if we see new cards released within next 9-12 months? Would think AMD sooner than that, and Nvidia anticipating as much, quickly following with refresh or new release. Nvidia would appear as scum of the earth after ripping off customers with Turing then replacing it in less than a year with something better. Usually I dont care what AMD does, but I really hope this time they can pull off a miracle and stick it to Nvidia where the sun dont shine.

    There's no way you bought that on release then. My 8800GT cost $349 new. The GT models were more of the 970/1070 line also

    That is a longshot, but we can hope. Funny that, signing up to a niche tech forum to tell us you are done. Make sure to head over to reddit's PCMR to let them know as well.

    I don't understand why that is so surprising. Nvidia has had a lot of 18 month refreshes in there history. AMD will have Navi out on TSMC's 7nm process in the next 6-9 months but I have no idea how good it will be. If Navi is good I promise this will be a sub 18 month refresh cycle from Nvidia.

    Why are people getting so pissed at Nvidia? They have these expensive pre-orders because they know people will blindly buy into it, and they sure as hell were right about their assumptions.

    Sure, it's a sucky situation, but as much as I find Nvidia's ego to be irritating, they're not in the wrong here. If you want someone to blame, point fingers at everyone who pre-ordered.

    Prices will stay high as long as people keep paying those high prices. I don't like it but I can't blame Nvidia for charging what they can. I hope AMD competes and also Intel's 2020 goal of going discrete graphics is a success. That will stop all of this gouging.

    Unfortunately it seems that these prices are only going to continue, at least based on the pre-orders of the FE model being sold out already. I was very interested in trading in my SLI GTX 1080 Ti setup for a single RTX 2080 Ti, but I will not support this kind of price gouging. Thankfully I am still quite pleased with the performance of my current GPUs so I'm more then content to wait a year and see what AMD comes up with in that time.

    I wont buy this green goo, and, to be honest, my old r9 380 4gb asus card is still good, look at the prices in Sweden for a 2080

    https://prisjakt.nu/search.php?s=2080#t-product

    Thats a commonly used pricesearch site, and they are, in my opinion, right, all the time.

    An asus 2080TI is, in Swedish crowns, 15K, thats 1800 usd.....

    Nah, I'll wait for prices to drop, or rather, gfx cards in my walletsize, to come.

    :)

    Or, I'll just move in with my gf and buy a console so we can sit in a sofa and cuddle while gaming.

    So I paid 1400$ for my 1080 Ti less than 2 years ago, now, going by those Euro prices, if I convert them to our New Zealand dollar, I'm looking at $2300ish?
    What The frack, Nvidia...

    The cheapest one in Israel is ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 TI TURBO O11G for "mere" 5700NIS [ 1680USD/1350EUR]
    I still hope Amazon going to get some stock to buy from them, even with import tax and free int Shipping its going to be 1200+200/250 so about 1400USD
    Although Nvidia promised 999 cards, still hoping for one, its saner price then 1200
    For 1400USD I can get a second 1080Ti plus Xbox One X and still have some money left

    This is the part where those still on 1080p at 60Hz can at least have some silver lining. Meanwhile my 1080 Ti weeps because I'm insane enough to throw 144Hz/1440p at it in world where GPUs are pitifully behind due to a monopolized market, and games are about as optimized as your bowel movements after having McDonald's.

    I assume at 1080p/60Hz a GTX 1080 can still make the cut for a little while longer, at least if you turn off resource hogging BS settings like SSAO varieties.
