Hello everyone,

So I am in the process of building a new system and I am looking to buy a new gpu as part as my new build but gpu prices right now are insane. I was thinking of getting an rtx 2070 used but the cheapest I have seen one on the used marked was still over $500.

I probably won't have all of my parts until late February so do you guys think that gpu prices will be better by then?

Thanks.

I dont see prices coming down anytime soon, it could be well into June for prices to come down a little. Factories are still trying to get people to get back to work to certain countries. 2070 prices are kinda high because 3060ti are kinda hard to find.

Go over to reddit hardware swap and look for a 2070 on there. They have 2070s for around $400, but you have to act fast, they usually go pretty fast. Lots of good people and many good sellers on there.

shot me a PM and maybe I can find something you're looking for, I cant guarantee it.

The only time we will probably see "normalised" price would be when manufacturing is back at 70-90% capacity and pandemic has improved overall for the world.

The same model RTX2060 I got last week for €300 was sold on swedish ebay for €430. GTX1070 cards are like €250.

Because you're one of the profiteers, so you like this.

I can't say when we will have normal pricing on gpu's again. But there will for sure be going months at least.

There are shortage of GDDR6 memory, many people are home cause of the pandemic, so many are now buying new or used gpu,'s keeping used prices high as well. Also scalpers and crypto currentcy miners are buying in as well, so there will be going a long time before pricing is normal.

I would suggest buying a laptop, you get more for your money these days. If you are concerned about future expansion / upgradeability, just make sure it has Thunderbolt 3 or 4. The only thing that can't be upgraded is the CPU, so make sure to get a fast 6 or 8 core.

$900 will still buy you a decent gaming laptop with a slightly slower version of a GPU that is going for $450 these days. At current prices it just doesn't make a lot of sense to build a desktop.

Even laptop prices are kinda high these days, I'm seeing them being about 10-20% higher than they should be.

Not gaming laptops. They are about the same as they were pre-covid from what I can tell, and I was looking back then as my original intention was to replace my old 7700HQ / 1070 laptop with a new one. I built a desktop instead. One that I was almost ready to get until I read about overheat / design issues, was the Asus A15. It's still easily obtained for $999 with a 2060, which is what I was looking at.

However the thin and lights, ultrabooks, 2-in-1 and such - they are definitely higher, maybe more than 20%. Even non-gaming refurbs are higher.

Oh sorry, I meant to say the used laptop market. New laptop market is still about the same price.

I would expect a better supply of PC part after the chinese new year (and hopefully a new trade agreement that will lower tariffs) so I would start looking for a new GPU in late March - early April assuming you can wait that long.

ebay and newegg are part of the problem so don't buy from them right now, in Canada at least one retailer memoryexpress isn't scalping, they're selling at normal prices, or at least as normal as you can get with shit the way it is.

I think the best advice is to just keep your eyes constantly peeled for deals.

It's hard to predict whats going to happen atm imo...

When Manufacturers flood the market again now there is low stock, also when retailers defeat scalpers.

eBay is part of the problem but newegg is not really they do need to add protective measures though against scalpers.

any well known tech store that hosts 3rd party selling is a part of system that allows scalpers to do better. newegg, amazon, walmart, etc. they each have listings of $400 GPU's selling at 2x+MSRP. meaning they are all giving these scumbags a platform by which they can sell their loot. if all these guys were forced to only sell on places like ebay, their customer base would be more than halved. i dont think it would eradicate them, but i do think it would hurt their business.

aside from making it entirely unpleasant for builders & enthusiasts, it makes manufacturers look like fools. for months we listened to that chinese guy from nvidia spouting this & that hype about raytracing & real time diaper shadows made possible by the new RTX 3xxx series, then they finally release, & theyre nowhere to be found.

the best thing people can do is wait, it wont kill buyers to wait, but it will hurt scalpers, it will hurt alot.

Maybe some of us could get together to buy a whole batch of gpu's... Then supply the community ourselves.

I'm sure we would get support from literally everyone. :toast:
