Let me get the 3080 delivered and installed first (delivery is scheduled for Friday)...but you're welcome to have first dibs once I find what 'current market value' of one of these is.

I believe it's this Zotac one.

I have waited this long to get a 3080 (of any type) at close to RRP, so will pass on my good luck by not ripping of anyone who wants to buy an 7/8 month old GPU. I'll assume there's no warranty as it was a built-to-order PC from a systems integrator.

You should see around £700 on eBay (minus fees).

Wow, I was thinking much less than that!!!

I was only going to ask for around the RRP of when I bought it - which was about £450.

I think for that - which is jolly noble - it'd be best to try to sell it to someone you know is going to use it. Put it on ebay at that and it'll likely go to someone who'll try to flip it for more straight away. That's not me holding you responsible for anyone else's behaviour, BTW.

I was going to offer it to one of those on my PC builder's own forum, as some people who were on 100+ days waiting for their builds and have gone for GTX1030 in the meantime, but ads are not allowed.

I suppose the problem selling it at all is you don't know whether it's going to be used or sold on!

Fine by me.

Once it's not mine it's of little concern to me what's done with it...you could use it to flaunt your mining profits and spread your gold-flake Nutella with it.

ETA: it's arrived a day early - and it's a chonky beasty!!!


Zotac RTX3070 has now been removed, and this beast is in it's place - and it fits with about 30mm clearance to the front fans.


Just to keep everything in the open, I have contacted Calza to complete the deal.

Would something like this be a sensible buy or are they still at crazy money?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174852790155?hash=item2...

I was thinking of getting the reverb G2, its currently £524 on Amazon which I think is a decent price but need a better card to use it. I paid £800 for a 1080ti just over 3 years ago so this is well over a 50% increase on the latest card out.

If you can be bothered to do the Telegram trigger finger thing the 3080 will be less than half that price and within 10% of its performance. I'm not sure I can be bothered.

I've got a G2. I'll be getting rid of it when I get around to it. It's still a generation or two away. It's comfortable and the clarity thing is true, but for me at least the clarity is a 1cm dot in the middle and everything else is a blur. I don't trust the build quality either. At all.

Your experience may well be head size and shape dependent. Mine is humongous.

Mine was direct from Scan 2 days ago, and was £1049, thanks to a post by F20CN16 on here...



But that's assuming you're prepared to wait for the lottery to go your way!

There can't be many FE's left now, since there isn't really the need for them. They are certainly not firing off the shelves in seconds like previously though...

What about this deal from Scan, supposedly today only.

https://www.scan.co.uk/products/palit-rtx-3080-ti-...

You get the card and a 850W power supply for £1370, power supply is worth about £120. I would need a better power supply anyway if I upgraded my card. I don't mind paying the price but I would feel cheesed off if they were only £500 in 6 months.

Prices seem to be tumbling quite quicky and stock is far more readily available, especially 3060 and 3070's - I mean, they've an in-stock 3070Ti at the moment for £700....which (while not in RRP terms, but in recently crazy pricing terms) quite "reasonable".

I think for me it's the psycological aspect of paying these prices when the FE's drop for significantly less....assuming you're sitting at your PC with credit card in hand when they drop!

Ooof. My 3070ti was from Scan, and was less than that bundled with a 1TB SSD (which went straight into the NAS so wasn't wasted).

There are actual RRP cards to be had with a little patience, particularly in the Scan bundles. Just make sure you want (or can sell on) the rest of the bundle and they're decent value.

Don’t do that. 3080 Ti is about 10% faster than a 3080 but hundreds more. It seems to exist just to make a 3080 look like good value at £1k.

Or possibly to use up 3090 parts at a slightly less extortionate price.

The 3080's are about £1200 on ebay though and Scan doesn't even have any in stock. I doubt I will ever get one at RRP from anywhere either.

The FEs require a lot of waiting around on maximum alert - and a bit of luck - to get though.

I spent almost three months checking my phone every time I got any sort of notification to see if it was a Scan FE drop. Missed a couple of drops for various reasons and I only got my 3070FE in the end from the F5 frenzy of seeing if any rejected sales got put back into play (there are always some because of the restrictions put into place to stop scalping).

Hopefully we will be seeing third party cards for something close to the SRP prices that the FEs go for. The situation for the past 9 months or so has been absolutely ridiculous.
