Looking on newegg, all of the 980ti's are $800-$1000, anyone know the reason for this?

Kind of a pointless post but it struck my curiosity after browsing around.

Shouldn't they be cheaper than 1070's?
 
+dewjustin The listing is from 3rd party sellers. And they aren't trying to rip you off, they are simply out of inventory. As someone who's sold massive amounts of inventory on both Ebay and Amazon, it's much easier to raise the price to unreasonable levels, then it is to delist something. On the other hand, if someone were to click buy, I guarantee you that they would scramble to find the item to fulfill the order.

link? They should be priced the same or less than a 1070, but the seller may be offering to ship them to far flung countries that have poor supplies of these parts and is taking advantage of that fact.

"Sold and Shipped by:
Jack's Marketplace "
"In stock. Ships from China. Most customers receive within 6-10 days"

Jack can ask that $899. Doubtful he will get that $899
