    Video card prices went through the roof

    Sometime in the last few months.

    I had a 2070, I sold that last November thinking man the prices for used items were pretty high, I still got about what I paid for it 2 years ago. Thinking 3000 series would be here soon and now that china and taiwan factories were open again that by spring time the 3000 series should be easy to order for msrp or below.

    Now good video cards are like 800-1000 on ebay and 5 year old video cards are like 200 or more.

    I have a Ryzen 3600 system which has no video, so im using this secondary all in one system. What is this BS. CPU prices up too so even trying to get a "G" processor to use temporarily is still pricey.

    shouldn't have sold unless you had the replacement in hand, I bought a panic sold 2080ti for 500, sold my 2070 for 500 and picked up a 3080 for retail from evga for 800 and sold my 2080ti for 1k lmao. Playing chess with the video card market, after 3 cards I came out with 120 bucks of profit. Expect these prices and availability to be an issue strongly into 2022

    There is still a world wide chip shortage going on. Auto makers are still scrambling to find enough chips for their cars. Thought I read an article about how GM just ended up not shipping a bunch of their trucks with cylinder deactivation because they couldn't produce the control module for it. Add in the ever climbing prices of Bitcoin and the like don't think graphics cards are going to be cheap anytime soon (or ever again).

    Not really lucky I knew the 2080ti values would bounce back a 1500 dollar card retail selling for 500 with 2 years of evga warranty? No brainer, People were panic selling because in their eyes nvidia was saying "the 2080ti is an obsolete pos" but I saw a chance to upgrade and not only did i upgrade but the gpu market went ass-up

    RTX3080 buried the 2080ti in price at msrp. Your were right but for the wrong reasons.

    Buy at $500 2080ti running out of warranty or a $700 RTX3080 with full warranty.... all of sudden the 2080ti doesn't make sense.

    cost me $150 to upgrade from a vega 64 to rtx 3070. I know I could have sold the vega 64 for more with how the market is, but I sold it to a alleged "gamer". who knows now a days

    2080ti I bought had 756 days left of warranty, and sold it with 630 days left of warranty. For a quick minute to the gamers that love to have the best of the best the Ti didnt make sense to them for me it made all the sense at 500 bucks easily. And that same guy that sold me it couldnt find a card for months. So I'm on the boat of do not sell unless you have the replacement in hand. The Evga queue system paid off, signed up in september and got my 3080 ftw3 ultra retail baby

    Heard PSU prices are starting to go crazy too. Seriously worst time to build a PC ever in history.

    I thought impulse buying on games 2019-2020 and accumulating a lot of backlog were just me being stupid, now I'm really thankful I got a lot of backlog of games to keep me entertained while waiting for prices to normalize before I upgrade and play through the rest of my newer games

    I will only pay retail (if not a holiday sale price) for a new graphics card. Which basically means I won't be getting a new one for a long time. Hell, I'd happily buy a 3090 right now if I could find it at retail.

    I can't buy from ebay scalpers. Just on principle I can't. And all Best Buy, Walmart or Newegg has to do is institute a captcha requirement. But they wont.

    I bought a 2070S right when the pandemic was kicking off last year and I was told I was a fukking idiot. I thought China would shutdown and cause huge component shortages.

    naw you could sell that pretty much what you paid for new maybe even more to some desperate enough lol but if you ever hit anything higher then 1440 then the 3080 comes into play but I have a 3080 for 1440 and you can tell its just eats up anything thrown at it lol

    I just bought a GTX 1080 off Mercari for $500. Joke was on me though because it was an evga hydro copper, and I didn't realize it was water cooled card and my rig doesn't have a custom loop setup. I panic bought (read: didn't research) it because I knew GPU prices were spiking and I wanted to upgrade my VR experience from my then current GTX 1060 before GPU prices got too out of hand.

    I ended up spending another $60 or so getting a Kraken G12 bracket and a compatible AIO to get this card up and running. It's working great now and VR performance in Project Cars 2 is a lot better with it.

    I ended up spending another $60 or so getting a Kraken G12 bracket and a compatible AIO to get this card up and running. It's working great now and VR performance in Project Cars 2 is a lot better with it.

Playing chess with the video card market, after 3 cards I came out with 120 bucks of profit. Expect these prices and availability to be an issue strongly into 2022

    I was moving and some of my stuff was in long term storage, that was last november i finally sold it, I had that in person and my PC was in storage, the idea was by some time this spring or summer the 3000 series would be out and at normal prices. DIdnt forsee another crypto bubble coming out after already limited supply problems.


    I still have my ps4 pro and i have a mini system with a 960 in it but its in a different state, would need to either ship it to me or i could sell it if the prices are inflated on that too. The card is built into the motherboard on that one though, so cant use it in my main.

    I can't buy from ebay scalpers. Just on principle I can't. And all Best Buy, Walmart or Newegg has to do is institute a captcha requirement. But they wont.
    Captcha will increase your chances if you babysit your computer but even then it's still pretty slim given just how many people are trying to get one for personal use. I don't think there's much they can do short of the card makers making more which they can't.

    It's funny how one of the main selling points of the 3000 series was the price and now we see a 3080 selling for like 1500

    In 2018, I bought a 1050ti 4gb mini, for $185.00 on Amazon, -brand new-.


    This thread made me go look at Amazon. That SAME CARD, is now selling on Amazon for $419 - -USED!!!


    lol wtf?!?!? the price doubled for an older card, and not even new!




    btw, I don't get why you guys are always fussing about better video cards. I can run any game on the market, on good FPS.. with my older 1050ti 4gb mini. I'll upgrade when I have to, i don't know why you guys are always upping when you don't have to. Granted, I have a fast SSD and like 16gb RAM and a very good quadcore Intel CPU, so it helps the card out.

    in fact, instead of upping my video card, I could just spend $180 on two 16gb DDR4 sticks, upping my PC from 16gb to 48 gb RAM.



    48gb of RAM alone would probably improve my QOL on my desktop more than just spending $900 on a better gfx card for a minor FPS boost.

    I only upgraded to get a better PC VR experience. Otherwise my GTX 1060 would've been more than enough. I also have a GTX 1050 that I put in a random machine I have because it needed a video card and I bet that would've been good enough too for the games I tend to play.

    But I got tired of the random stutters I'd get simracing in VR with that 1060. I'm just glad I was able to upgrade to something more capable before GPU prices went full retard.

    Heaven help me, I was debating buying a pre-build, as that's one of the only real options to getting a 30xx card. Funny enough, if you buy an alienware comp, the entire computer costs the same as the ebay price of just the gfx card alone.
    An alienware r12 gaming pc with a 3090 in it goes for $3300. This is a sign of peak-clown world that I consider that reasonable.

    (I have a vr system, so vram etc is a bigger deal than it was back when I just played strategy games on my pc)
