I sold my 2080 Super for $500 last September, got my 3080 for $900 in January.
Also, Namtrooper, the way games are headed with their quality, we're not missing much. Only looking forward to a couple games so far. I'm getting old and grizzled.

Seeing as how preposterous graphics card pricing has become, once my 1080ti becomes obsolete I'll probably give up on gaming for good. Had a good run the last 24 years.
Same, its at a point where the whole PC gaming and PC building doesn't even worth the effort, when clowns can quadruple prices of components overnight worldwide, they can just rot in their hole. Every opportunist and enabler within the industry. When a high-end PC becomes the cost of new unused cars, better to just have a phone or tablet instead.

Agreed, regarding the DIY PC building. Where you find the best deals now is with prebuilts. A few months ago I purchased direct from Amazon an HP Omen 30L for $2000. It came with an i9-10850K, LQ Cooled AIO, Corsair 750W Gold PSU, 32GB @ 3200Mhz HyperX Fury, 1TB WD NVME SSD, 2TB HDD 7200rpm, RTX 3080, Wifi 6.

There are deals to be had it just takes a ton of patience and luck. That HP system I purchased for $2K, Amazon was dropping the price to $1760 but the scalpers and bots got to it before I could checkout.
