HiddyhiddyhoSkits1023Lhr cards are dumb anyways.. it splits the supply and doesnt offer any benefit at all. Pretty sure people have already figured out how to get around them with custom bios flashes to still use them for miningFrankly if there was a way to completely kill hashrate without significantly affecting gaming performance I'm all for it, we desperately need a reprieve from cards being scalped or sold off to miners before they even hit inventory of stores.

777GE90The price you paid is not too bad from MSRP. I think the top end cards like the 3090 are already starting to drop, they are useless big pieces of s*** that offer no value for money. The MSRP of them is silly, but the third party markups are beyond ridiculous and people actuallly seem to be coming to their senses with those cards. Nvidia has been flooding the markets with the top end 3090's and when the drops usually happen you can now have long periods of time to secure your card (in some cases over 30 minutes!). Where as other cards like the 3080 are still kinda like gold dust, because everyone knows value for money when they see it. But even the MSRP of the 3080 is pretty steep.
marto_banicataDo you think the prices will continue to drop? I ordered a 3070ti for 970€ and the card is currently sitting in the courrier office. I'm starting to rethink my decision to buy it, 970€ is still too much. I know that nobody can predict the price movements, but I'm still interested to hear your opinions on that.
