    I don't have a problem with scalpers, I`d scalp myself if I could. If people are stupid enough to pay those ridiculous prices, that`s their problem.

    Auctions and market places should ban the sale of Ampre and RDNA2 so scalpers get stuck with stock they can't sell.

    I`ll be glad when the market is flooded with decent priced GPUs again so I can get back into gaming (watching box sets at the moment.)

    We're already worse than Turing pricing as I don't remember retail prices like £550 for 2060 super £700 for 2070 and £850~1000 for a 2080 and let's not even start on the 3090 which up till now is the 2080tis successor.

    From me, nothing, zero , FA, not a penny.

    I prefer to wait for cards from the regular vendors.

    I don't mind paying a lot for a GPU but I won't help a scalper make a $%^&*() penny.

    I got my 3080 at retail so glad about that.. but I have been looking for a 3070 to do into my daughters system for well over a month now and just brick walled.
    I have paid an extra £60 to buy a 3070 over what it costs retail now because I really cant be bothered to wait any more
