I'm removing my 970gtx and finally ditching nvidia.Well, considering what other cards are selling for, you may as well get the RX 6900XT at MSRP because you're paying pretty much the same price as a much weaker card on the open market. At least in this way, you got performance for your $1000. It still staggers me though, the idea of paying four figures to get a video card. I didn't even pay four figures for my R5-3600X, X370 motherboard and 16GB of DDR4-3200 combined!
I just hope for your sake that you were upgrading from something like an old R9 280X because I'd still be using my R9 Fury if I didn't get the deal I did on my RX 5700XT.
To be honest, I do agree that it is simply too much money and this card in particular is a mixed bag, since compared to the 6800rx, its overpriced, but compared to a 3090 is a bargain.
Also, I am going thru some interesting "philosophical things" and lets say, the money spent was justified for all other reasons, besides the upgrade.
