3080Ti FE & 3090Ti FE are available to buy directly from Nvidia Store

He's right you know...

Now, if they could only do that for the RTX 3080 FE.

But they don't want to, they'll only do it for cards costing >£1,000.

It costs £400 more for a 10% improvement in performance vs the RTX 3080.

Is it a good idea to sell a graphics card on rainforest?

Has anyone had any experience of selling GPUs there? If so, is the selling fee ~15% for graphics cards? Then, 20% VAT is charged to the buyer from the selling price, I assume?

I noticed that the selling prices for FE cards that sellers are offering are quite a bit higher than what CEX is offering to buy them off people.

Not sure how VAT works on Amazon for private sellers.

Yes but I imagine not higher than CEX are selling them for. CEX buy low and sell high. You only have to pay TAX if you're the original purchaser (unless you're a VAT registered business and then you can claim it back/not pay it)

Yup, good news for people looking for a very good 1080p card.

Shame they haven't dropped any RTX 3080 FEs in months though.

Didn't Nvidia put the MSRP up in EU countries? Might explain why drops are most frequent in Germany, France and Italy.

I saw the RTX 3080 button switch to 'buy' for a few seconds (clicking it links to the RTX 3060 TI), so maybe they are still selling a few in the UK.

huhh ? 1080p.. the card does very very well at 1440p and even at 4K with most games and any 4k that are more demanding knocking a few settings down and it's good to go. Very good card for the money and a good upgrade for many people. Also a very nice solid card the 3060ti FE model with a nice gunmetal silver colour to it.

3080FE are done for sure now. They have 3080ti's and 3090tis to shift yet so don't see them using up the 3080ti coolers on 3080s anymore (same coolers on both cards as you know on the FE cards). 3090fe is done too i'm guessing unless they have unsold stock in other countries that they move around to other regions to sell them.
