    Welp...
    I am just happy that I got my xfx 6800xt for only 1045e.
    After selling my son's 5700xt for 710e(my 2080s went to his PC) it was cheapest upgrade ever for me...and he got like 20-30% improvement in some games.
    Now, my xfx Merc cheapest I see is 1100e plus delivery...so yeah. Good I pulled the trigger.

    WOW. Things have turned completely insane with the GFX market :(

    Personally i feel incredibly lucky. In Norway our used sales site for everything is called Finn.no
    I could not get my hands on any card but i had saved up money so i got a Gigabyte 3080 for 960$ and did not feel TOO bad since the retail price at the time was 890$ in the store.

    I first startet to understand what was going on when i put my old card a regular 2080 non super up for sale for 450$ and within 10 minutes i had like 10ppl wanting to buy it. I honored the first guy and sold it for 450$ making my new card cost only 520$.

    Less then one week later i see the same 3080 cards going used for 1500$ and the 2080 cards for 700.... it is a complete sham both Nvidia and AMD has pulled this time releasing cards that you cannot even get and making the market go completely crazy. I feel sorry for anyone needing/wanting a gfx card for the next 8-10 months

    Will the card even be much of an upgrade over an old 5700XT which was half the price?

    of my 120 steam games i bought about 20 of them and played about half those, rest i got free, and my epic catalog is all free and about as many games at this point and i installed none of those, my backlog will probably never get played, I still have yet to finish witcher 2 so i start and play witcher 3. If i could pull my self away from nioh2 i might actual get around to that, then again most play game on my ps4 at this point


    As for this BS prices cause miners and bot buying up the rest it can be easily stopped atlest the price scalping online can be stopped it just wont be. All these cards are track via serial, manufacturers can mandate checks and any retailer that sell it scalping prices and is caught should blacklisted and not receive stock anymore, it might be extreme but it will stop it if it is enforced but there is zero reason for them to there card are sell faster then they can make them at MSRP, and them seeing people scalp them for such stupid prices and stupid prices being payed by stupid people will just make the manufacture raise prices even more. with prices how they were before mining crap started all over I lost interest in rebuild my pc and with prices still going and only way find these things now is to really pay those scalped prices I have zero interest

    Even the prices of 1xxx series have been jacked up mostly 3rd party sellers seeling threw amazon/newegg/walmart other sites that allow 3rd party sellers, amazon/newegg/walmart and other such sellers have so far been very careful about scalping prices

    https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=1070ti

    I payed 450 for mine there more them double and those prices are from 3rd party sellers on such sites

    Yes, and not just by 50% but 90%, spoke to a miner the other day on the ETH sub reddit, said he doesn't give a damn, it still profitable for him. I was enraged.

    It is not that bad here.
    PS5 $521 w/o VAT
    PS5 Disk-less $417 w/o VAT
    XSX $521 w/o VAT
    XSS $309 w/o VAT

    Only problem is, that none are at stores right now, and better stores are basically putting you into queue. Next batches for 1st 3 consoles are coming next month.
    And Next XSS batch comes 25th this month.

    In contrast to that, same shops which have queues for consoles do not even offer queues for graphics cards. And we have some smaller or PC unrelated stores which when manage to get some, put ~3x price tag on 6800.
    Those are nothing short of parasites.

    I just want the 60 series to go back to normal pricing, I feel like I won't be upgrading for a very very long time.

    I'm all for video cards being made for people who want to play video games with the video card.... like... I will pay money for a video card that is made to play video games, I wont pay triple, but I will pay for one if.........................................................

    1. it is priced normal.

    2. it can play video games.

    Wait, maybe the seller is basing his price on vram ammount, right? I mean it has the second largest vram out of 3000 series. A 12 gb card that slots between rtx 3080 10gb and rtx 3090 24gb.




    Just kidding.

    As allways, patience is your best friend, but that is easy to say!!
    I really do feel sorry for people, who desperately need a card for a new system build, or just to exchange a broken one.
    I never ever thought in my life, that you can make a little fortune with old used hardware components! This is getting ridiculous now.

    My 1080 is also still going strong on 1080p - smooth 60fps even in most new games with all settings cranked up. My worry is if it survives long enough...

    I am going to buy 1 of these, strap it onto a shovel and then head to my nearest coal face, and let see Nvida stop me using it for mining. :p
