First, as Techspot points out, let us applaud the COLLAPSE of the cryptoscam markets for the increased availability in the GPU market.

Secondly, Even tho availability is higher, inflation is as well.

During Black Friday, My microcenter was full of 3080Ti, 3070Ti, 3060Ti, 3070 and 3060 as well as 3050 - and a bunch of overpriced AMD Red Devil cards nobody wanted - even as far back as last summer.

Even now, they have them available on store shelves.

But the problem is: everyone knows that the 3090 should cost $1500 and every single dime they spend over that for anything less than a 3090 is a ripoff.

Today: you'll spend more for a 3080Ti than I spent for my 3090FTW3.

That's sad.
I honestly thought, just for a moment, that you were going to make a whole post without mentioning that you had a 3090.

Gigabyte has had my broken 1660 Super for THREE MONTHS and tells me they can't repair it or replace it. Ohhhh, and no refund either. They can only steal it from me and they could care less that I actually bought it for a purpose. Buyer beware. The card was only 60 days old when it stopped working.

Gigabyte has turned to sh*t. My condolences.

Umm... "isn't far from over yet" is the opposite of what you mean to say. If it were far from over, it'd be ongoing, so if it isn't, then that means it ended. So, either "is far from over" or "isn't over yet" would be correct, but not both.

Y'all need an editor *cough cough*
