I will pay it if the scalped price is reasonable.

Just continue to ram our heads into any option available until the outcome changes... kinda feels like insanity.

May the Schwartz be with you!

Are there programs that trip up or slow down bots? I know there's captcha but is there anything else?


There are multiple ways to detects bots, but as far as I'm aware sites like BB and newegg only throw increasing amounts of captchas once they detect a bot. The stupid thing is there are bots out there that are pretty decent at solving captchas anyway. 


It's mind blowing and not surprising (at the same time) that bots can solve captchas.

Only if you limit the way they can buy. Like max 1 gpu and wait time for every move. Like if a user need 15-20 sec to click everything then lock down the "next" button for 15-20 sec. So no way a bot can go faster than a normal human.

I think the best way to combat it is the MSRP. The $1199 price of a 3080Ti is already outside of the price range of most people to be honest. Scalpers are not really going to do well trying to get an extra $500 out of people especially when they are all trying to do it most people won't pay $1799 to a scalper. On the other hand you get a PS5 or Xbox Series X and try to make $300 isn't that hard and if you are lucky you can do that twice and make $600 off $1,000 you invested in the two consoles which is better profit and $199 less for the up front investment.

Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

As long as there is a market for things like this, there isn't much we can do.

Hold fast and don't buy from them. Actively figure why people are scalping what you want and info your friends not to take part (read: crypto)

Don't pay their prices and some companies need to improve their purchasing methods to combat bots

Considering a bot to combat scalpers for a 3080 Ti. Just like the quote goes "If you can't beat them join them" But if I do consider a bot ill just snag one and only one.


I mean if it’s only for you I wouldn’t blame you, sadly I don’t know anything about the programming required. Sadge.

Retailers in asia are taking cards and building ready to buy mining rigs. They sell single cards are triple the MSRP.

Search on youtube, "creating buy bot with anaconda". It's easy to do but the website Im trying to buy from has bot protection built in when I tested the bot I created.

If you want just any card, try Newegg email notifications at 3:47 AM EST or Newegg Shell Shocker daily deals at 3:00 AM. Prices will still be higher than they were pre-2021, but not as high as scalper prices.

exactly! I don't see any other way to go, you just stop buying until pricing gets back to normal

wow the amount of people who used this thread to fluff up their post count to reach elite.
 
This thread should have been locked after the first page.  How the heck did it get to 4 pages of everyone saying the exact same thing...
