Picked up a 3080 on accident

Post by Das Troll » Fri Dec 11, 2020 11:20 am

It was just sitting there at my local computer store so of course I snagged it. Nearly 900 dollars and I haven't even opened it yet. Why? Well I'm trying to flip it on ebay for twice that. If it doesn't sell I won't exactly be broken up about it, I'll just install it and have a screaming good video card.

Oh don't get me wrong, I agree people shouldn't over pay for a 3080. BUUUUUUUUUTTT there are people out there with more money than sense.

I will if it doesn't sell. If it does sell then I'll just wait for another one to come along and get it for free. My 1070 is still doing pretty well.

People shouldn't over pay for ANYTHING.

Like these fucks paying $1,600 for PS5s and shit instead of having a little fucking patience.

The semi conductor shortage has pushed these cards into extreme rarity. People are waiting in line every day for the store to open at my local tech store.

Ugh, great, an excuse for every electronic device to shoot up in price.
