"I finally got an RTX 3070 - and I scalped it"


          

I sold my 1080 last year in expectations of buying a RTX 3070 to replace it.

Then the supply wasn't there to get it.

So about 10 days ago I got one from Bestbuy.com for $499+Tax. It arrived.

I stupidly looked a Craigslist and OfferUp and saw they were reselling for $1200-$1300 and more like $1400-$1500 on eBay.

Well - I scalped it for $1200 cash in like an hour (inside of a bank where they withdrew the money and I put into my account - so 0 risk.)

I couldn't leave that money on the table.

Praise me - or damn me - your choice.

Is the high pricing because of people using the cards to mine Bitcoin?
