"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.

and you know what happened. Out of all the times to do all this credit card validation mess, that's when Best Buy chooses to do it. So the card I had on file had to run the gamut smh. When I was done, GONE. I gave up trying to get one. My son and I running the 2070 till we can walk in a store and copy a 30 series.

Got there early in the am and just waited. Truck came before they opened and they had a ton of cards. This is after trying online for months and having the bots and scalpers take them all.

If you have a micro center near you they get deliveries Tues-Thurs. Right now its your best shot at getting one.

I'm keeping mine.

with shortages looking like they're going into late 2021/early 2022, somebody would have to pay me something ridiculous in order for me to let it go
