I do wonder how much I could get for my Titan X Maxwell, it's still got the waterblock on it and I think the stock cooler is long gone... This semiconductor shortage is only just starting to pinch I think.

Damn. I could earn some quick cash if I wasn’t giving away my 2080Ti to my son and an RX480 to my nephew.

I bought a brand new RTX 2060 Super this time last year for £314.

There are two on Ebay with buy it now prices of £689 and the other £2000 (rofl)
Auctions for other 3 in the UK are at £311, £391 and £450. With the £391 less than a day off finishing, so probably £400 is the going price for used.
Damn, I sold my 2060 super for £250 in September!

Can't find my old card, I think I may have binned it. Oh well, no point in crying over spilt milk.

Prebuilt ordered but manage to bag a decent machine with a EVGA RTX3080 - way over budget, but what the heck.

A few weeks ago I bought a scalped ASUS TUF 3070 for £700.

Yesterday I saw the same model sold for £875.

I'm not happy to have supported the practice but I'm glad I went for it when I did, rather than wait.

What a mad situation.

I've set myself a savings goal for Oct to buy a new gaming PC. Hoping by then they will be a bit more available. Current state of things is just annoying.

I bought an ASUS RX580 OC 8GB for £169 in December... currently on eBay at £310.

I have already sold my 2014 vintage R9 280X for £67... though I just accepted what I thought was a reasonable offer and didn't let the auction run which perhaps was a mistake.

Goes some way to clawing back the £750 I spent on my MSI 3070 Gaming X Trio.

So glad I copped a 3060ti for £450 in January. Same card went for £820 on Ebay yesterday.


Absolute, madness.

Blimey it's gone mad. I could remove the Rx580 8gb Sapphire Pulse I have and revert to igpu for a bit and get £360 odd for it going by a quick fleabay search! Crazy tongue out

It's so frustrating. I want to build a new machine as my old i7 2600k with a 1060 is getting very long in the tooth now.
At this rate I might as well wait for the 4000 series!!

Give it 6 months and stuff will he going the other way.

Supply vs demand sprinkled with a minority of buyers with more money than sense.

Just like GameStop and Bitcoin, if it’s recently gone up hard, it’ll be coming down hard again.

I really don't see this semiconductor supply shortage getting resolved that quickly. It's going to take at least a year, maybe longer I think.

This won't help either - "Samsung Semiconductor Fabs in Texas Shut Down Following State-wide Power Shortages" - https://www.techpowerup.com/278625/manufacturing-s...

That's a huge factory making flash memory for SSDs amongst others.

TSMC are setting up a new Fab in Arizona too I believe, but it won't be online until 2024. Intel still haven't got a 7nm process... Yeah it's going to be a while. Are semiconductors the new oil?

I got a 5500XT 8GB from eBuyer around Black Friday last year for £175. Just looked on eBay - the prices are bonkers!
