Just got home from one of my town's mom and pop PC shops. I love shopping there. Recommending friends there because, they struggle to compete. Prices are always decent, maybe a couple bucks more, so keep em around ya know? Been around for like 20+ years, great place.
 
Anyway, I walked in, and the kid (Haven't seen him before probably new) asks if he can help. I said I'm just killing time, where are the GPU's at? I'm needing an upgrade... As we walk over, he asks what I currently have, I tell him 1070ti blah blah blah... He said their selection was a little small at the moment, but walked me over anyway. I get there and I'm looking and yeah, pretty pathetic selection, they had a 1650 ti, and a bunch of ancient cards you probably couldn't even give away nowadays.... Then I notice a 6900 XT, and right next to it a brand new in box EVGA RTX 3080. I grabbed it so freaking fast as I shouted out loud, "OMG you guys actually have a 3080?!"... 
 
Then I flipped the box over... my excitement fell thru the floor, and I muttered... "At ebay prices too..." ($2200)
 
The kid and I did have a good albeit short conversation about the supply issues and all that tho. The 6900 XT was also massively overpriced for those wondering. 
 
It was cool to actually find a 3080 in the wild tho... It was the first one i've seen. I actually wanted to take it out of the box just to hold one in my actual hands... But thought they'd probably kick me out for being a weirdo... Anyway ... So they do still exist. Just... You gotta really want it to pay those prices.

    pity about the price.  I guess that's why it was on the shelf

    It was unfortunate about the price, if it was sub 1000, it would probably be in my system at this very second. 
     
    But he said, they've put in the requests for cards from all the manufacturers, they can't even get a single card anywhere. The only way they get 6900 XT's or 3080/3090's is from ebay.
     
    He did say business has been good tho regardless to the stock issues with the cards. When they sell one, they just go straight to ebay and order another one. That's how they are getting them he said.

    I would have ask them if they have a layaway program🤔....🙄

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    I know my Nvidia FE 3080 is a thing of beauty to hold & marvel at.  When I got it, I was literally like an 8 yr old schoolgirl when I opened it up and held it, and looked it over...Grinning from ear to ear 
     
    Seems unlikely to be able to mark up prices after procuring any cards from EBAY scalpers...

    That's how my buddy found his 3070 FE, little tiny computer repair shop in the back of a grocery store. I think he paid a grand for it though, we all give him **** for it but his last computer was made of everyone else's spare parts. He went from the worst computer in the group to the best.

    The "smallest" computer store around here is Micro Center. Maybe for the best though if these mom and pop places are charging scalper prices.

    Same where I live. The only one around here closed a few years ago. Sucks because I always want to support local places. I hate seeing every store taken over and replaced with a chain.

    God I wish I had a Mircocenter nearby, the closest one is San Francisco 1,300 miles away. My local pc store when i worked there 3 years ago actually considered FX processors modern, only has HDD's and the best GPU they carry is a gt710 lol

    That's what's frustrating about Newegg. People can keep reentering the shuffle no matter how many cards they've already bought. The prices are competitive enough to allow people to scalp them.
