    Are you using some kind of price-tracker, or just monitoring prices manually?

    Trump stuck a 25% tax on imported graphics card & motherboards from China to the US in between trying to start a coup and whining about losing the election. Higher prices are a result of that.

    Oh wow! I almost bought a TUF (new one) on gumtree 2hr drive away the other week for $1650, but ended up finding a Vision the next day local to me for $1500 (used for 2 months).

    I really got to get around to selling my 1080ti but I think the way the market is heading I'm going to be rewarded for my laziness......

    I bought the Inno3d iChill x4 3070 for $939 and i couldn't be happier. It does exactly what i need 144hz 1440p. Didn't see the point spending more money on a 3070. TBH i wouldve been happy with the x3 for $899 if it was in stock at the time.

    Jesus. Saw a few strix 3080s in stock when I was shopping yesterday and thought they were pushing it at 1750 delivered.

    On the flip side, I've been watching 2nd hand cards get cheaper as scalpers are struggling to offload them now.

    Think most of the desperate have their cards by now and everything's gunna find itself in an awkward spot soon with overpriced cards no-one wants to buy.

    True, but it shouldn't effect Australian pricing, unless Australians are paying a premium fee, to offset US customers?

    Yep, I would have bought a 3080 if they were abundant.

    Does anyone have a link to a good guide for Precision X1 undervolting? I know Afterburner is better for undervolting, but I've moved to Precision so I can control the LED's & fans better.

    I really just want to use the one program, and I don't mind if it's a little harder to learn, I just want to do it properly. :)

    3070 is 10% more than a 2070 was and 20-25% more powerful. You could argue that the 2070 was overpriced (compared to a 1070) and a shit comparison, but let's be fair, 10 series were absolute monsters for their price. Tech prices are rising, not a lot we can do about it.

    Well yeah... i had a 1080ti (so top of the line)
    Then when 20 series came out i could only afford a 2080 (big mistake)
    Now that 30 series is out... looks like i can only afford a 3070 :(

    Assuming when 40 series comes out i'll only be able to afford a 4060 !!

    I had a 3070 and moved up to a 3080. Cyber punk aside, today the 3070 is a better price/performance card.

    Cooler and quieter too.
