    Not true, I've had better luck on the lottery...admittedly, only winning £10, but a win is a win

    Given that some of the 3070ti's that have popped up on ebay are shown as already being received by the seller. Would this indicate they are likely employee's/friends of other retailers who are buying their own stock to scalp? How else would someone have them in hand already?

    I honestly don't believe half the messages on these websites. A UK retailer was showing me via pop ups that many people were purchasing a certain 3080ti that I had open in a browser yet this was before the release day.

    Like I posted this before - "why wait till you get home to scalp someone why not stick it up for sale on that website on way home from the shop!" Now there are two (top one looks like they got two as well) !

    Pretty sure these are genuine items too :cry:

    They need bidding up on eBay and trolling.

    What a sorry state our hobby has turned into. I have been a gamer since the time of the P3 pentium and never seen the likes. Prices before even getting scalped are nuts and yea, I have been guilty of OTT spending but kinda glad I have skipped this gen.

    Hopefully we get some normality soon but I doubt that. Glad I treated myself to a drone instead of a GPU and loving it.

    Nope. Had all my ducks in a row and not even a sniff. Hoping my 1660 is going to last long enough until some more deliveries come through, no way am I buying on ebay...

    Sounds like the Lions share (if not all) of OCs stock will go to people already in the 3080 queue anyway so MM access may be moot anyway.

    The UK has a fair few stockists of 3080ti's, all but one are AIB only (which from what I can see have hardly even been released yet) and the other shop has been the one selling all the FE cards.

    I wonder how close supply would be to demand if the only people who had the cards were the ones who actually wanted them.
