    Lol even if you had the money, you'd have to be slightly mad to be willing to hand over £1700 for this.

    I actually pre ordered one of these. I am not rich by any means but I am a big ROG fan. Currently I am running 2080tis in SLI so selling my 2 cards will cover the cost and then some of the Matrix. I do hope I was one of the 4 that Gibbo mentioned!

    Wouldn't skyhopper01 be getting it VAT free as well?, so that knocks it down to £1400ish, then convert it to US dollars too, so it would be significantly cheaper for him than us in the UK

    yeah so probably £1400 delivered when you knock off £340 for the VAT

    Don't you have to pay any customs tax?

    Yeah that was my thinking too. Why take a loss to buy a single one of these? Pure ROG tax and nothing more.

    3 percent due to price. About 50 dollars.

    Well, after dealing with SLI and being disappointed , I figured I would sell while these cards are still hot and get one of the fastest cards. In the end it is a 20 percent loss, but I still have a nice chunk left over after buying the matrix
