    People with too much unspent covid money :cool: And doesn't matter about how much faster, even if it's only 10%, it's about having the bestest!

    I’m all for paying a bit extra to get it quicker, but even then there has to be a limit

    Perhaps I'm in the minority.... but honestly wish you'd take your scalping to the for sale forum for adjudication there than trying to scalp cards in here.

    Dangerous occupation when the latest "leak" has big navi beating a 3080 by 10% in firestrike.

    3080, you know what you're getting. If it gets beaten, no big deal as you are buying at perf/$.

    But 3090, paying double for penis size rights is a big call now.

    I don't think he is scalping cards himself? Just giving people the heads up that he knows somebody who has supply, albeit at extreme scalper prices.

    It's going to be damn close, the card Lisa showed at Zen 3 wasn't the biggest.

    No offence but you really gotta be trippinonprozac to pay that for a 3080. Any 3080.

    Helping scalpers is the same to me as scalping yourself. Not a fan of either. I dont like people linking scaler FB or eBay posts here either just for that reason - giving them airtime is just as bad.

    Personal opinion.

    I think you misread, I am not selling cards.

    I have purchased one from a guy who is scalping, he has offered more from the shipment. I was just trying to help anyone out that might want one.

    That is fair enough but I for fact know others do care.

    Im not a fan of scalpers either but its the only way I could acquire one in a reasonable time frame. Others are in the same boat.

    I absolutely understand your position and am not a fan either but I think it's a little rough to say prozac is doing the same thing as scalping as it doesn't sound like he is benefiting from them being sold at all. He found it at a price he was willing to pay (even if most of us are not) and is sharing the opportunity. In a perfect world nobody would buy at these prices and scalping would be a lost cause, but there are always outliers with money to spend.

    lol I paid more than that for a Zotac 2080ti on launch.

    People are paying over 2k for rubbish cards. Im happy to pay an extra $400 for the best card.

    Oh believe me, Id far prefer to pay RRP and have a card but that is simply not an option right now. I do not condone scalping nor am I one.

    Given no one knows how long that will go on for Im prepared to pay more. I know not everyone is and that is fine. Im simply extending the same opportunity I have.

    are they though? got my STRIX OC for a lot less than $2199 mate... anyone spending over $2k on a 3080 is a complete and utter moron... which sure, there are plenty of those out there...

    Ok mate, you have voiced your opinion and I hear you but calling me straight up a moron is out of line.

    I have money, Im allowed to spend it how I like.

    Also - congrats, you are one of the minority who got one.
