    I bought a Sapphire Nitro+ 6800 XT OC for €1228...
    and in don't regret it at all... here is why.

    6800XT MSRP €679 - No stock anywhere at this price.
    Sapphire Nitro 6800XT MSRP works out about €120 over

    Giving this card a €800 price tag before any shipping, customs, fees,VAT and retail percentage (for Ireland).

    I had a 5700XT sold for €550 due insane market demand.

    1228-550 = €678 <- end price of my 6800XT....you could look at the real value of a 5700XT, and have that conversation however everything is inflated and mad.

    Just a bit of perspective.

    If you are looking at Ebay I've noticed that forever. A lot of things always seem to be more expensive on there compared to normal shops?! I don't know if that's the bidding war aspect though where people can't let go of something once they start bidding and get FOMO.

    I was looking at the sold buy it now prices and also whats currently for sale for buy it now dont get why people would buy when retailers are also selling them for the same price , but some listed are none LHR that could be playing some part, the retailers are mostly now LHR only

    either way not worth scalping now looking at the 3080 anyway

    I used to keep my old gpu or pass them onto family members. With this market I have come to recognize that you can treat a gpu in a similar way to a car, sell them off to pay towards a new gpu, especially when you can sell your old card for more than you paid for it. Selling my old Vega meant I paid less for my 6800 than MRSP, if I take into account the money for the Vega. TBH I also took a gamble on selling a 6800 at the top of the market and buying the very same card back cheaper, which you can't do in most markets but it paid off in this one. I sold a 6800 to the second hand chain, which was advertising £1000. They haven't been able to sell their stock at the £1200+ they wanted and have now reduced their prices to £800. So I was able to buy back the very same card that I sold to the shop for less than they paid for it, this alone brought the card back to below MRSP without taking into account what I also got for my previous GPU. I have currently also got another card with the shop that I don't think they will sell at the price they want & I am going to see if I can buy that back for less than I sold it to them. This card is just a bit of fun though and would just be as a backup card if I do get it back from them for less than I sold it to them for

    It is AMD's fault for allowing mining tasks on graphics cards aimed at the gaming market.

    Technically, AMD should be sued for this situation and the whole inconvenience caused to all of the customers.

    Even though the mining card of choice this time around is the RTX 3060Ti/3070? So AMD should be sued for a competitors product?

    The CEO fails to deliver the promised product at the corresponding official price.
    Without further price hike notifications, justifications or any explanations.

    The 6800XT can be bought from the AMD shop for MSRP. So again why are you complaining?

    Thats down to Digital River - the distributor AMD uses (and until recently, Nvidia were using them as well).

    ^This.
    The card is already sent and I will be able to take it on Monday.

    Have no idea what to do next, though. Maybe just to update my X570 MSI Tomahawk's BIOS first and then see if the system will be fully stable.

    But the above card is an absolute turd, will be a nightmare to deal with an Ryzen 9 5900X and RX 560...

    Hope is that the prices will normalise soon to 700 pounds for the Radeon RX 6800 XT.

    If not, it will be very painful months ahead.
    Till Q4 2022 when maybe we would eventually see any next-gen replacement.

    The thing that worries me with something like this is, what if they go belly up and the company goes into receivership or bankruptcy while they are holding your deposit .. and maybe still even holding your new card and your old card. :eek:..

    I know why EVGA is doing this but they only need a deposit of what the msrp is of the card no more, in my book they are taking the micky... Because even if the person doesn't return the old card and is trying to get a new/another card this way they are still paying what they cost to buy. The silly fun never ends in this industry it seems.

    think you are confusing reference cards to partner cards i.e MSI, Gigabyte Asus etc

    AMD do directly sell cards at MSRP just like Nvidia do FE drops at MSRP, sadly AMD dont do drops for UK

    AMD use Digital River - who are the problem selling to the UK (and for returns if anyone has dealt with them before - a shockingly bad company from all accounts)
