The market is in need of correction. I can understand the new GPU pricing but honestly imo, an GTX1080Ti at this point should be max 200USD (should more like 150USD).

Also, its pretty hard to sell computer parts nowadays Most users are satisfied with there computers so therefore the people who want to upgrade consistantly is small. You all should should be only paying only 10-20% of its original costs (unless it new item out less than one year but minimum 50% discount). I blame human greed and trying to recover the most as possible (same thing occurs with other expensive luxury goods).

Depends, in EU finding a cheap 1080Ti is near impossible, I haven't seen one, they all sell 2nd hand close to what new used to sell for and new ones are not sold anymore in stores.
In US you can find them around $500.

There is simple solution, don't pay outrageous 2nd hand prices, haggle and haggle. At best you want to pick up a GPU in person anyway and even then it's often quite risky and seller often doesn't turn out as they portrait the item, warranty information not present, something bent on the card, some weird story or general lack of care for electronics... it can be a mine field on 2nd hand market and paying more than 50% for an old card that's been used all it's designed life already is not good at all. You never know when these cards are gonna give up when they already ran for 2 years, sometimes maybe even often were mined on exclusively or when not gaming on. Modern GPUs do die even with their crazy Nvidia limits to make sure the chips die as least as possible.

The supply for expensive when new, used worthwhile cards to upgrade to is small.

I don't understand the new market for 1080Ti's to be honest. On Amazon, for example, almost all of their 1080Ti's are listed for over $1000! How can that be???

You can understand the fastest gaming GPU being $1300 but a 1080ti (the 2nd or 3rd fastest gaming GPU) should be no more than $200?

That sort of logic applies only to modified cars and Faberge eggs. Lol.

And yet everyone screaming Radeon VII is way too expensive at $699. That's 2080 performance (+20%over 1080Ti) with even more VRAM...

Somebody tried to sell this set for 10 times as much on amazon so I bought it through ebay as there then wasn't any other at that time.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/PRIMA-Ceram...d+Cookware+Set

Somebody have cornered the market? Remember when they talked about free markets? and free choice?

The best choice now are to buy less often, cheaper or not at all.

ps I only bought this cheap set as I wanted something that was easy to clean. I knew I would not use it much as I had bought a steamer and Tefal Actifry'er for spring rolls and french fries. It is thin metal so it will probably bend if I put hot water on it. I had to give the smaller pot CPR, 40 pressures to get it strait.

Yes, been looking for a 1080ti in french and swiss sites and the cheapest (new) was 880 E ! For used (read: mining) ones, I stumbled across a 250 E one ... advertised as not working, for parts only !!! *** ? For working used ones (if you have to be picky enough to want a working one), I had one or 2 at 550 E in the UK. Seems the UK is the most reasonable market ATM ...
But still, totally crazed prices, in Europe. I understand the US is quite different in this regard ...

Frankly, no way to fork out close to 900 E for new or 60% on a mining 1080ti, I'll stay on my 970 until sellers are desperate enough. I'm still at 1080p and I'll delay a bit the VR stuff.

I think inventory has not yet rotten enough for sellers to be desperate. Let's wait 6-12 months

I've given up on buying new in the GPU market. Prices are getting to crazy for my blood. When you have to decide what is more important; Mortgage, food, utility, vehicle insurance or a GTX 2080ti, it's to much. Just like mobile phones, I stay a generation behind.
