    Most likely a form of money laundering.

    It is just a crooked seller hoping that he can find a sucker. If you notice the same card is available from another seller for $389.

    I always avoid 3rd party resellers. This one is Sold and Shipped by: IT Parts Express I think they bet on suckers buying it OR they didnt update the price from many months ago during the crypto miner price hike.

    Dude that doesn't make sense. Washing machines can be had for much less. WTF are you going to launder with a graphics card?

    Or you can buy a used GTX970 on ebay for cheap around $85~$100US Dollars mod the heck out of it and overclock it balls to the walls = Boom GTX1060 performance for much less money ;)

    Sell pieces of overpriced HW to yourself in a lot of small (<1000$) operations

    -Hey, where did you get all that money?
    -I sell hardware, things are going well, suckers are paying x3 the price for some reason.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/GTX970-DDR...520931?hash=item2146c95723:g:ApUAAOSwqmdbmHxX

    Is that 50$ better than a GT 710? All I want is to play ultra-low/no AA or AF at 4K. And the GT710 doesn't do that, not even HD.
