No not used. And I said Ive seen them. I didn't say I trusted those sites. Or even heard of them.

Ill link them in spoiler tags and you can look but I would NOT give them money.

Remember I would NOT do this.

So it's meaningless to say you've seen them for $550.

Indeed, that's about as useful as observing how you've seen e-mail from the desk of a Nigerian barrister, with assurances of a large sum of money courtesy of an unclaimed inheritance.

Ive seen that too.

In real prices from real companies the RTX 3080 is running about $770.

Newegg
EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Video Card $779

Amazon
EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra Gaming $779

So half a left kidney. Down from a left kidney and a sperm donation.

* performance-per-watt will be a huge -even primary- factor
* 'ultra' 4K gaming is also going to be secondarily important (going to move from a 2005-era VGA 1280x1040 4:3 monitor to a 4K one) so will see what next-gen brings to the table
* also waiting for next-gen card specs to see what raytracing looks like there

i still suspect my next GPU will be from AMD, but keeping options open
