PC Discussion; The 3080 bots affected the market, creating a new era of Overpriced parts
 

 
Did the market change once the 3080 dropped?

The 3080 was supposed to make older cards drop in price because of the card being nearly 60% more powerful than the 2080ti, with a price point almost half price as the 2080ti

The 2080ti was $1200

The Much more powerful 3080 was $700

Remember how we was laughing at people who owned 2080ti's, because the price of the these cards were predicted to plummet, and make them worth about $500. So allot of people got rid of their 2080 Ti's in a panic.

But then bots bought all the 3080's, and initially charged $1500(now the price is $2000+ most places)

This actually allowed the 2080ti, along with less powerful cards, to spike in price in ways we have never seen.

Ultimately creating a new era in overpriced components.

So now the days of buying powerful sh*t for $600 is over.

People in this new era of PC gaming, will have to shell out $3000k+ in order to get a good 4k gaming experience and even 1440p in some cases.

I didnt understand why Nvidia would charge so little for the 3080, when it was so much more powerful than the more expensive 2080 ti.



image Conspiracy: I believe Nvidia, bot-purchased their own cards, and hiked the price point to something more reasonable(based on the 2080 ti price), in a grand scheme to not lose as much money.

Ultimately, causing price spikes on every single card on the market.
image

I want to note that when bots purchased the 3080, Nvidia didnt do anything about it. They quickly released the 3070(a card that nobody wanted, because the more powerful 3080, was already affordable at only $700)

Nvidia knew that the 3080 was too affordable for anyone to care about the 3070.

When bots purchased the 3080, allot of consumers bought the 3070 as a consolation. I almost did, but to me it was 3080 or nothing at all.


Where are we now? The 3070, and every card weaker, is about $1000+ on allot of sites.

Discussion.

I’m a member of the PCMR. This is my first pc build. The experience was fun and expensive, it was like putting together a nerd puzzle. Should have just bought a prebuilt but I wanted to do it myself.

Ryzen 9 5900x
EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 TI
32 Gigs of 3600 MHz ram
2 TB Samsung 980 Pro NVME SSD
250 GB Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVME SSD
MSI MPG x570 motherboard
Lian Li Fans and AIO

I got 3 months of gamepass with the gpu which was cool and it came bundled with a EVGA mechanical keyboard and capture device. 165hz 1440p monitor gets here this weekend.

Built my first PC at 15yrs old with money I saved up.

Props tho OP.

Could have been a millionaire at in my 20's if I didn't have a unsupportive family who thought computers were for nerds. Still ended up being the most successful person in my family even against all the odds.

might as well mine some ethereum when not using it and let the pc pay for itself after x amount of time.

but welcome to the master race.

Life changing decision when I bought my prebuilt a month or so ago. Not quite as nice as yours. 3070, and only 1.5 tb of NVME. 32 gigs of ram and 10th gen i9.

Modded games >>>

Finally experiencing games like New Vegas and Dragons Dogma the way they are meant to be played. In the long term, I bet you almost break even with all of the money you save on games.

Enjoy

I recently made a similar build but bought a few of those NVME SSDs. With that video card you're looking at around 4k. Right?

Congratulations and welcome to TRUE gaming in orgasmic like 120fps gaming

All you need is an hdmi 2.1 compatible Oled to go with your 3080ti

I would look into LG C9

Nice build man. Welcome. Now you'll only go to consoles for the exclusives and experience everything else in the highest of quality. Like some others said. Get used to FPS with keyboard and mouse. Once you lock it in, you'll never look back.
I am deeply sorry for the sloppyness of the thread. I do not know how to mention.

They are impossible to get at retail price unless you standing out in line like you hunting for Jordans.

Go on Amazon and look at those prices.

buy a prebuilt pc with the gpu card that you want, take out gpu once delivered.

Sell the rest of the pc brand new open box, and you'll only pay a fraction over resale. Then you can build the pc with the parts you like.

It aint even worth it at this point. I copped a 2080 super for $700, and I was very impressed with the performance.

I still felt I wasted my money because of the 3080 release.

But I couldnt land a 3080, then the price of the 2080 super spiked to $1200.

Made me feel grateful for my card because I was already blown away by the performance.

You know pc gamers are greedy, and always thirsting for more power.

I began to reflect on my greed, and how I didnt need a 3080.

I only wanted it because of the price point. But then my fool a*s was about to pay $1300 for a hiked 3080.

At the finish line, I changed my mind and grew content with my already powerful card.

I can see that being the catalyst. This last year was the perfect storm of fu*kery. Covid causing slowdown in production and shortage of chipsets, then I think we got another bump in prices due to tariff changes between US and China.


But yeah...unfortunately I think this might be the new norm. GPUs and CPUs are the new Js

That dont sound easy at all. If I go on Amazon right now, its nothing but spiked prices.

Im not talking about "going and searching for ways to get a 3080". Im talking about just going to a website right now, and seeing these products listed at retail price.

Not spiked prices.

Their is no website that you can just go to and cop one with a simple click for $700.

The entire market is affected. All the older lesser cards have spiked as well

Im so grateful for my 2080 super now. The turbo card is now worth $1200 when I paid $700.

Man I will take care of this mf for as long as I can!

microcenter is what you need if you have one near you.

I believe its 1 gpu every 30 days, they log your ID or something. My local MC restocks every thursday.


r/buildapcsales on reddit, if you wanna keep up with any prebuilts with that gpu. I personally havent seen any FE cards in prebuilts.

its never greed, its futureproofing imo.

I got a 3070 in my pc now, before that I was rocking a gtx 970 from 2016 that is now in my wife's pc working flawlessly.

The great thing about pc is that, these machines wont become junk until 10+ years later unless part(s) fail which can all easily be replaced/rma'd.

you can buy them at retail everywhere that sells them legitimately.

you want it handed to you, as if others dont want them and they are in short supply.

just say "im lazy, and dont wanna look out for availability"

dont complain that its over-priced.

same can be said for console boys aswell. quit complaining and adapt to the ever changing game. just cuz you got money dont mean your owed anything.

free game for you as a man

Thats why I say its greed. In pc games you have "resolutions" ranging from 1080p to 4k.

And "settings" ranging from "very low" to "Ultra"

We playing on Ultra 4k now, but several yrs from now, these same cards will at the very last be able to play at 1440p low-medium.

Its going to be a while before a 2080 super becomes obsolete for 1440p Low settings.

They will at the very least run1080p Ultra several years from now.
