    It’s during moments like this, that I reassure myself that everything is OK because the Auspost CEO has a monthly salary of $200k.

    Sounds like a good deal you get to put it in first before paying!

    Given the hush hush back room deal nature of the previous seller this seems likely, zero after sales support, thats real sus, might as well be stolen goods.

    So like, I get to take it home and check its working? Then defintely* 100%* totally* bring the cash back when im done riiight?

    Seems like a good deal actually.

    Someone should tweet these gumtree sales to Asus Australia - I'm sure they're not pleased with people skimming imported cards out of the distribution chain and selling them without approval or warrantee.

    You should straight up ask him who his supplier is and if the cards are stolen. Make them squirm.

    Guarantee the answer will be the same as the reciept question.

    "No supplier! Only crab kalosh! you put in pc and make sure work, then you BUY you BUY!."

    For those of you discussing CPL a few pages back I have purchased one or two things from them in the past had no issues was going to get the strix 3090 OC from them at 3099 until I saw their reviews on product review average of 1.9 stars turned me right off using them again.

    Isn't this MSY's slogan?

    Funnily enough, I know MSY cops a lot of stick but I haven’t had an issue with them. Even with a dodgy graphics card return where it was an intermittent issue I couldn’t replicate in the store, they still took the card and sent it for warranty and it was replaced. I know I’m only a sample size of one, but no issues here.

    It really depends who you dealt with and what store, like I said in a previous post, there was a guy who worked at the Brooklyn store before he left and the store closed that was fantastic to deal with, but I have delt with others who weren’t as good

    I'm stuck with NVIDIA unless I move on my x34p which doesn't really seem like a smart move.

    Wish they could firmware update monitors for AMD VRR support, not sure if the hardware is different though.

    Disagree. Probably the smartest move you could make. Get money for it while you still can.

    Vendor lock-ins are never a good idea, particularly when there are viable alternatives.

    wouldn't be a bad time to sell tbh. go either way

    i bought the Dell 32" 165hz 1440p Monitor, as it was Freesync Pro 2, but also GSync compatible works great (was some teething and tweeking, but all sorted now). not locked to nvidia or amd.

    But TBH gsync/freesync isnt something i have used much, even with a 1080ti i get enough FPS in the games i play where it isnt an issue.

    still yet to try a 3080 with this panel, have been quite the lazy tbh.

    the colorful 3080 is expected next week, that will be paired with the dell and 3700x system, so happy days.
