It was still your choice to purchase the bundle. You probably could have found a 3080Ti for a similar price or slightly less on ebay if you were that hard up for one, but you would have been short a mouse and monitor if you did.I was part of the NewEgg Shuffle for over a year and never won... so yeah, not in my control and I couldn't just wait and pray for a new card, so the bundle deal was the best thing I could find for the card I wanted. If this was for entertainment purposes, I wouldn't have been so impatient, but this was for work purposes and timing was important.
And the word you're looking for is "looking" wise guy...
I'd look at your purchase then, if a 3080Ti was what you needed and you finally got it off newegg shuffle, as a win. Even though it came at a steep price and came with other items you probably didn't need nor want, but at least you have more to show for your money over spending around the same amount on just a scalped GPU off ebay.
My last post was while I was typing on the phone, it's not always the easiest to use for replying and navigating on forums.
Steel and steal have two completely different meanings. An incorrect letter (a k instead of an I) in a word just makes it spelled wrong in my situation.
