Considering the selfishness and absolute need for immediate satisfaction plus the fact that those same individuals have the money to burn...yeah the scalpers will continue to rake up the money from those fools.
They (scalpers), got none from me.
6900XT over 1100GBP, 3080s over 1000GBP, eventually I said phuck it, and plumped for a 3090 direct from Nvidia's site, which re-directed to Scan.co.uk .
And so, for a few hundred pounds more, I wound up with a 3090 as opposed to the '10G VRAM' 3080, which I do not expect to 'age well'.
Explaining this last Sunday to a family member, the cheapest legit 3080 was 1,195 on Fleabay, at that time of looking.
So the scalpers did end up costing ME more money, but none of it THEY got.
