    Add 1k and you might be closer to AU RRP

    Fuck it, I'mma try and get an RTX 3080 Ti pre-order, would be a more appropriate upgrade from my old RTX 2080 Ti... Won't sell the RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra until I get my hands on a Ti first though :Paranoid:

    Yeah the market pricing is pretty disgusting now. Scalpers, I understand but holy shit these are ridiculous. And people seem to be buying them though. So yeah :shock:

    So why is it that evga have only had a marginal increase, while other brands have gone through the roof?
    EVGA are the good guys and aren't taking advantage of people?

    From all the rumours and hearsay, apparently the distributors are the biggest price hikers, before it gets to market of course. I think PLE deals direct with EVGA or something like that? If that's the case the EVGA might also deal direct with other major Aussie retailers.

    EDIT: Posted this in another thread

    A completed eBay sale, but it looks like the seller relisted it, or sold another one just like it?

    Well according to that Hardware Unboxed video, it would seem they must have a firm grip on their distributors as well as having firm supply lines - leading to not having to gouge the fuck out of everyone.

    edit: great minds think alike :leet:

    If that's a PLE ETA, you can't even take a shit on it.

    You would think so - but when I spoke to the store it was going through an internal transfer in preparation for shipping......
    Fingers crossed....................but we will see

    Yeah mine had an ETA of 23/4, but on the 23rd I asked if there was any news and was told it was delayed by 1 week..
    So we shall see.. same internal transfer message..

    I gave up on PLE after 2 and a bit months of waiting after release without an update. I can only imagine how bad it is now.

    $3369 for below bundle in stock.

    I thought not too bad in the current market and at least it is not a blower style card like their last bundle. Kinda like paying 2k for a 3080 taking off rrp of the other bits.

    I'm kinda tempted but don't really want an inno3D card.

    AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
    ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming Motherboard
    Team T-Force Delta RGB TF3D432G3600HC18JDC01 32GB (2x16GB) 3600MHz CL18 DDR4 Black
