The miners who really make lots of profit use huge farms in locations with cheap electric costs. Some recent reports indicate several chinese-operated farms are in Iran, causing blackouts due to their hunger for power.

B&H Photo is more akin to what Newegg used to be. At least IMHO

Nice, but when did you sign up for Auto Notify? I didn't see that it was possible until the first of January, the 13th actually. I doubt I'll see an email before July or August.

Oh, and Amazon is worse then NE on that score.

Thanksgiving .... it took about 2 months.

The reason I signed up was that some one else had signed up in early October after the failed 3080 launch and received their 8 hour notification in November. I figured I didn't have anything to loose. I was about to pre-order a card off of shopBLT right as I received the E-mail notification from EVGA.

Amazon is first and foremost a Marketplace and does not claim to be an electronics/Computer/Gaming superstore nor do they claim to be "Pro Gamer" in any way, but yes Amazon is just as worse when it comes to scalpers and their search engine blows donkey snot.

That's the key really. Everything else is a crap shoot. There's good sellers and bad sellers.

There must also be a flyable computer available for Nefarious to do FSO. So he doesn't keep talking about it for eight and a half hours on Friday night!

As far as I can tell, this 3080 ~$1000.xx ASUS card is being sold directly by Amazon, for $3000.xx!

I've decided I like ASUS and Gigabyte best because of their 3 x Data Port and 2 x HDMI ports.

I'd like an Asus 30 card too if only because it matches up with my other gear. But at $3k? Hard pass. This'll settle down eventually.... Uhhh.... Right? I thought the plan was better performance per dollar? Lol that went down pretty hard didn't it?

It's marketplace scalper not directly Amazon.

But it is on Amazon so Amazon is participating in scalping.

Good catch. I'm used to seeing above the Buy button.

I have a new computer with a 1060 in it. AH seems to work very well with it...am I in danger of it not being fast enough in the near future?

1060 should run AH just fine on a monitor. Would be pushing it trying it in VR.

I'd upgraded to a 2060 when I started in VR. Way back in the old days a couple of years ago when you could just buy a new video card! Guess I'm gonna have to get used to that as anything newer seems to be built of pure unobtanium.

I have a 1060 6 MB card and can run my Oculus fine in AH. It doesnt look like there are any major update/rewrites in the works for AH so Id think you'll be fine with what you got if it runs well now.
